My aunt was cleaning out her cedar chest, and lucky me, she passed down some linens that my great-grandma, and my grandma had made for her when she was married. I am so thrilled to have them!
My (dad's mom) Grandma Carlson embroidered a set of dish towels. They are very whimsical, and cute. The complete set is here, with a cat and mouse on each towel. Apparently, Wednesday must be sewing day!
My Great-Grandma Fast embroidered this set. It is very monochromatic and pretty, each day is labeled with a chore; washing, ironing, cleaning, baking, and one for Sunday.
Included in the package was this apron, my grandma always used to bake and do her kitchen chores in an apron. She passed away when I was in middle school, so these linens are extra special.
Look what I found in the apron pocket. A hankie!
Thanks, Aunt Martha. I love all my precious gifts from grandma, and great-grandma. I keep walking into my pantry just to peek at them; making my shelves so pretty!
