Linenalia!

I've recently been diagnosed with a new thrifting disease..... LINENALIA! The love and need of vintage linens! I can't stop buying them!

HELP!!!

Aren't they cute? The first one is in Toile and from the 50's. It's totally MINT!

The second one has a mexican theme. Made of 100% cotton, it's even older! From the 40's! WOW!!!


Now this last one I don't need to tell you when it's from! It has a little fabric tab where the spoon is so you can hook a wooden spoon! CUTE!
All are available in my Etsy shop...
Be sure to hop over to http://thriftedtreasure.blogspot.com for a delightful blog and an amazing giveaway!

Linenalia! The sister ailment to Pyrexia I'm guessing... I've got it but not bad, thank goodness.

Love your symptoms :)

Oh dear. I think it's contagious, and you passed it to me through your blog! I love old linens too, and I manage to find at least one that I don't need at every estate sale that I go to!

I too have this disease and my linen closet has told me to stop...but I can't!!! Is there a 12 step program? Love those linens!

I am afraid I must admit to being somewhat of a vintage disease...and it centers around kitchen things and older quilt patterns..and all in between. Your linens are just wonderful.

Hello everybody!

It seems we all suffer from one kind of thrifting disease or another!

There's Pyrexia,Buttonosis,Linenalia,Glasswareis,Kitchenstuffia...The list goes on and on!LOL

I'm afraid there is NO 12 step programm for that! oh wait there's always Hoarders if it gets REAL bad!

That is why I have an Etsy shop and I sell through eBay also, just to control the chaos...

Thanks for stopping by! I just love hearing from you!
