Cute linen cocktail napkins~theyd sit a drawer more than theyd be used at my house. 
Now theyre a pennant banner,hung where they can be seen every day. 
A lampshade covered with an old grain sack~what a fantstic look!
Old flour sacks make great pillows. 
A vintage bedspread makes a darling slipcover!
Worn out vintage tablecloths make great tea towels. 
An old tablecloth turned into curtains~perfect for adding vintage style.
