    Well...let's see.. I have 2 trunks, 1 closet, and various other spots filled with 50's tablecloths, cross stitched tea towels, hand towels, tatted hankies, embroidered tablecloths-towels-hankies-pillowcases-doilies. When I'm out & even tho I have too much, I can't stop buying ~a quarter here or there. It's hard for me to believe someone would sell their Grandma's hankies that she has embroidered with her own hands. Amazes me...

    I don't have any fancy "linens" but I do have a fabric stash I could open a store with, and a good portion of it is linen.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    ok, i'm not such a nut. after all. i have an an armoire full of real linen sheets.

    i was looking to pick up another dozen, but stopped my self, inventoried what i had, and immediately stopped that hunt. I have 40 irish linen handkerchiefs, all bought on ebay, enough for 5 clean hankies per day per week.

    I love hand embroidered pillowcases -- the ones with the Southern belle, bluebirds, butterflies, etc. Even better when they're trimmed with crocheted lace trim or embellished with cutwork! I've been meaning to get a pair of the "His" and "Hers," or "Mr." and "Mrs." pillowcases for my shabby chic master bedroom.
