WINNER!!! Giveaway: “Stained Class, Hanky Panky”

The winner of my “Stained Class, Hanky Panky” tablecloth giveaway is: Renee Chastain, who said:

“My favorite vintage linens are beautiful tone-on-tone ones (i.e. ecru linen with ecru embroidery, white crochet on white cotton, etc.), especially if the patterns originated in the “Old Country.” There is something so sentimental, historical, and meaningful, whether you know the person who made the piece or not. To me, vintage linens represent the interconnectedness between women and also generations.”

And the original post for the GIVEAWAY was (thank you to the 53 women who told me about their favorite vintage linens!):

In the Oct/Nov issue of MaryJanesFarm, “Hanky Panky” (on newsstands Sept. 15), I led you here to my daily journal for a chance to win a beautiful, vintage, coffee-stained tablecloth, made with my coffee staining instructions on p. 74.

    I have many vintage linens left to me by my mother-in-law…embroidered pillowcases, hankies, table scarves. There’s something about the feel of vintage that’s just more substantial than today’s linens/fabrics. I love the crocheted edging!

    Congratulations Renee! This is such a beautiful tablecloth that will fit in perfect with your vintage style. I just know you are going to enjoy your new tablecloth!

    I love vintage linens. It is a love affair that started when I was a little girl looking & touching my grandma’s linens. Now I pick up a few here & there. I’m looking forward to the auction at my girlfriend’s church, where there are always vintage linens!
