Linens were apart of a young girls dowry when we reflect back in time…
      Items she brought into a marriage. 
      Monogramming linens were usually a sign of affluence in families.
      Neither of which I grew up with!!!
      Specific cabinetry pieces were made to hold the family house linens… I love that!
      When I started collecting pieces for our country house I found some fabulous imported european pine pieces that were from the 1800’s.
      When I found this piece I was smitten…
       It is a 1800’s Housekeeping cuboard
      This is where I keep our family linens!
      The beauty of it is I have plenty of space to organize my linens. I have so many linens… Most are still packed because we are renovating.
      Future pantry light!
      *LOVE* Vintage ticking… 
      I have several upholstery projects waiting for this. 
      I tag and write the yardage so I know at a glance with out unfolding!
