Some more vintage linen, and more to come.

This has been another good week for the Collection. Not only finding stuff at the antique shop and having some wins on eBay, but two dear friends have offloaded some of their unwanted linen to me! Lee Ann at Peartree Cottage, works in an opshop in the country town where she lives, and she picked up some lovely items to put aside for the next time we visited them. But in the end she couldn't wait any longer, so she put them in the mail
Then one of my home care clients had a stack of things she had inherited from someone in her family, some of which she kept, but the rest ended up with me. Now, I have egg on my face. The linen from Lee Ann, and the linen from my client, were on the back seat of my car, and as I drove around all day today, everything ended up in a tangled pile, and there are a couple of things that I have forgotten who gave them to me!! I have much more stuff from both of these ladies, that is currently soaking in the tub, so once it is all clean and pressed, I guess I am going to have to take everything to my client and ask her to refresh my memory! Oh dear...
