I can never resist a handmade apron. Pretty soon I'm going to need a closet just for my collection. Does anyone else here still wear them?
Some bright and pretty placemats--perfect for Fiesta-filled San Antonio.
A couple of fun book finds, (these are affiliate links in case you'd like a copy for yourself, too) Oops by Arthur Geisertand French Women for All Seasons.
Some gorgeous linen napkins. I can't tell if these are handmade or not, but they're super cute. Too bad there were only four.
And the best find of the day? An original by Leona, of course!
My heart swooned when I spotted the embroidery stitches peeking through the linen racks. I've never seen stitching like this and knew I couldn't leave them behind. I think they may have been intended as placemats, but I'll probably use them as napkins--for special occasions, of course!
It's always heartwarming to find handmade items on my excursions, although it is a little sad that someone gave them up. But it's wonderful being able to give them a second home.
