Linens and Lace at Cozy Cottage - Pink Friday

Fine linens and lace passed down through generations.....what stories they could tell if they could only speak! When I go to an estate sale or auction I can never pass up the chance to bid on a stack of old linens. I try to imagine who might have used them and why they are being discarded. Is no loving family member left to be their caretaker? Or have they just gone out of style with the latest generation?

This week at Make Mine Pink our Pink Friday theme is "Linens and Lace". I can't wait to see what everyone has to offer........I am using several of my vintage linens to create something special, but you have to wait until Friday to see it on my website!

Vintage linens can be used in your home in many ways.......they add that special touch of coziness that makes your house your home. I love to layer my linens by placing a pretty cloth over a table, then accenting items on top by placing coordinating crochet doilies underneath each item. Drape a pretty crochet cloth over a lampshade to diffuse the light and create a soft glow. If you sew, you can create many lovely items from vintage linens and lace........pillow covers, handbags, bedskirts, curtains.... just to name a few.

I would love to hear how you use vintage linens to decorate your home!

Show and Tell Monday - Putting on the Glitz

It's been awhile since I've had a Show and Tell, but I just had to show you the new Glitz and Glam category at Cozy Cottage. Premiering this week is a vintage gown from Dessy Diamond Creations and I just love it! I will be adding some beautiful beaded bags before long too.

Cozy Cottage gets a facelift

Well, I've never been known for being static.....I just have to have change from time to time! With that said, I've been wanting to give my Cozy Cottage website a facelift for quite a while now and I finally took the plunge, purchased a new template from Pappashop and had it installed over the weekend. Go over and take a peek. I was aiming for a feminine, soothing, elegant atmosphere. What do you think?

I'll be posting a slideshow of all the changes that have been happening at the real live Cozy Cottage before long too.

Have a wonderful week,
