Heirloom Party



If you have been wondering what the button down below is all about, today is the day you find out! Today we are sharing an heirloom with all the other lovely ladies signed on over at Marie's site: Emma Calls Me Mama.


The heirlooms I am sharing with the party are 2 pillow shams. These 2 shams were embroidered by hand by my Great Grandmother (my Dad's Grandma). They are in perfect condition and are perfectly whimsical. I hope that I have them to share with guests (they live on the guest bed) for years and years to come.

Oh how pretty these are. My grandma made many pillowcases from old feedsacks. I don't know what ever became of them.

Those are so great! The perfect mix of modern and vintage because they look like something you could buy today.
