Vintage linens and other stuff.

Scone warmer-thingy. Looks old, but I suspect it is a recent machine made production. Nice cross stitch sampler. Tea cosy with kookaburra on one side, and a sprig of wattle on the other. Not too many of you would remember these sauce bottle covers, I'll bet! I don't even remember them being used at home when I was a child, but Mum did have one in her drawer of table linenss. Unfinished cushion cover. I'd have a go if I thought I could match the threads, but it might be difficult, given its age.

You have such a fabulous collection! I think I like the tea cozy the best. I've never seen a sauce bottle cover in use, either. Maybe that's why it's in such good shape!

Hi Gina, always love looking at your vintage stash. Some time ago I came across this blog, thought you might be interested in having a look - http://mytransfers.blogspot.com/
She shares some of her transfers which you can copy. Meant to send it you earlier, but forgot, sorry.

Joy, thanks for bringing that link to my attention. I did have one of Floresita's blogs on my sidebar, but for some reason it vanished. So I've put her back! (Feeling Stitchy is the blog I like best, and it has links to the transfer blogs)
