Night shirt

Antique linen monogrammed nightshirt.

Gathered around the back. Heavy linen feels very comfortable , breathable material.  

Brocante finds typical of this area

Needlepoint. .Beautifully fine and the materials are of great quality. The colours of the silks are strong and the gilt frames are of good proportions. There are dates written on the back 1967.

A cotton mix sheet,double.

A sweet clay hand thrown pot. Very rustic with visible grit in the clay. It sits in the hand  perfectly and you feel a connection with the potter.

I liked the lip on this glazed bowl. It has a small chip, but even so, so lovely  in the kitchen. I have been making mayonnaise since buying it as it's just so satisfying use these old craft made bowls.
