Antique Linen Christmas

It’s no secret that we love vintage linens. Especially at Christmas.

The ever classic red embroidery often found on vintage and antique linens just speaks of Christmas.

Metis bed linen of course looks lovely when used in its original state.

As well as draped over couches and ottomans.

But the wonderful sheets can also be used to create chair slipcovers that are so cozy by a roaring fire.

Of course no mantle should be without stockings hung by the chimney with care.

These vintage linen stockings feature cuffs made from handkerchiefs.

Don’t you just love this dreamy petticoat of a tree skirt?

Scraps of linen can be used to create Christmas gift bags as well.

A tree covered in sachets would indeed be heaven scented.

I don’t think that even Santa himself could resist this sleigh of goodies.

The tree skirt is divine, my daughter would be beside herself - the girl loves a ruffle. I could just climb right into that lovely bed (and I just got up!)
