Vintage Flour Sack Cloth
Even though I just got back from Taos and I have a ton of great travel photos to share, I thought this week I would post things that are mostly red, white and blue. Last year I had the idea to do it and time just got away from me.
It was funny because one day it dawned on me that most of the linens I collect are red, white and blue. It wasn't a conscious decision, but when I look at my tablecloths the majority are in that color scheme. The blue is often more of a sky blue than a flag blue, but blue nonetheless.
The fabric above is from a flour sack I bought at the flea market. I am currently using it as a pillow case on our screen porch outside. It is amazing how the sun has faded it but I kind of like it that way... and the pattern is one of my favorites. To me the design has a slightly Asian flair. Gorgeous! So check back because there will be lots of patriotic posting all week!
