Fragrant lavender bouquets can be found throughout my house. The sweet hankie was also chosen from the linens at Audrey's house.

  5. Looks so pretty painted white. The vintage linens look so pretty there. Thanks for the link back ... glad you are enjoying the linens. I guess I need to get busy and update my blog ... time is just passing so fast and no energy to be creative.
