The Suitcase of Fun

Here are the much anticipated ;0) pictures of all of the FREE linens that were in the suitcase that I bought in this post. It was a blast watching my 2 dd's going through all of these vintage things and squealing with delight as they tried on the nightgowns and aprons! It was like Christmas!

Sorry about the wonky colors in the pictures.

You must be the luckiet woman on the planet. I am dying looking at all that stuff. It's like pandora's box of vintage linen! Wow! I love the pictures of it all hanging out on the line. Better yet, I love that like myself you have and use a clothesline!

I love exploring the contents of boxes. You just never know what you are going to find. Looks like you found a lot of lovelies in there.
