Needing to get a move on with re packing my Glory Box so that it is not taking up much needed room in the house.....(ie it needs to go back into the wardrobe out of the way) has made me look at some of the contents with new eyes.
Much of what is in there I have had for many years....long before it was "trendy" to have and certainly any thoughts of re purposing any of it. Now all these many years down the track I have a much keener interest in the items and see that many of them have so many new lives to live.
So this week I am showing you a stack of linen that I have stored away and with my new eyes I am thinking that it all doesn't need to go back in the box and stay in a pristine, mothball smelling state.
Even the lovely damask tablecloths and matching napkins still in their original boxes need to come out and see the light of the day....
maybe they just need to go on my table....or maybe they are destined for something more grand.
All I know is that I think both my mum and grandmothers would be pleased if I was using them and showing them off in all their glory in stead of trying to preserve them in a chest at the back of my wardrobe.
I think the same goes for the supper cloths and crocheted doilies and table runners.
