I was very excited over my latest vintage find!
It is a vintage runner & placemat set ~
Pride of Flanders ~ exceptional quality linen ~
Made by Weil & Durse ~ who eventually became known as Wilendur.
I'm not a placemat lover usually, but this set was so beautiful.
I found it at a new consignment store. A member of the VTLC
was kind enough to identify it for me as Pride of Flanders.
This was probably made in the 1940's.
She told me she inherited a set of these same placemats and
runner from her grandmother, who gave them to her when she was in
high school. It started her loving and collecting linens. I love to
hear how collections got started!
So pretty, I had to set my table for brunch!
I haven't finished my Valentine crafting, but I'll share a few things
I made and a few things from last year.
The sweet girl is sitting atop a tart pan, all decked out for Valentine's Day.
She will be flying through the mail soon to a friend.
I love spoolies so had to make a new one.
Finished a few cards.
Pulled these cuties from my stash! I made the 1st and 3rd, and the other 2 were made for me
in Valentine swaps. I am ready to finish crafting and Valentine decorating.
We may be getting 6 inches of snow tomorrow, or more, but I
am thankful not to be in the area of Virginia that is expecting blizzard
conditions and 2+ feet of snow! I'll send out a prayer for them.
Are you crafting for Valentine's Day?
Or finding goodies?
Have fun doing whatever you enjoy!
Doyle is! Our snow is almost melted, so he will be
excited after the snow storm hits us tomorrow.
