Taking a Deep Breath....

The deadline is fast approaching so I'm trying not to get overwhelmed with boxing up. I'm still finishing my " girlie stuff" vintage globe collection was a nightmare to pack and I hope they stay intact.
Packed my collection of thrifted  vintage evening bags in the hatbox I posted a few weeks ago

All were found in charity shops over many years, my favourite being the hand beaded navy blue clutch made in France.
Today I'm emptying the last of the linen cupboard ( my special white collection already boxed)
I'm going to launder and press this amazing huge table cloth I found many years ago in an Anglican op shop. Its Madeira embroidery and would originally have cost a heap to buy new!
A few years later I found a set of 12 tablemats. It does take forever to iron!!

Tuesday was our Wedding Anniversary and what a nice break to have a great meal out !

  1. I can imagine the trouble you'd have with the globe collection, they don't exactly stack nicely together into a box.
    your evening bag collection is stunning meg.

  2. WOW, you have such a lot of interesting things to package up. I can't imagine how you did the globes. :) Your hand bags are very pretty and couldn't ever imagine parting with them.
    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! It looks like you had some lovely gifts.

  12. What a lovely collection of purses. So many to choose from. I adore your Madeira tablecloth. It is exquisite. Such a great treasure to have.


  13. That's so funny, I have a huge tablecloth very similar to this. I'd never heard of Madeira embroidery. Mine has wedding bells/ xmas bells on it.
