Greetings From Australia

No, don't worry, I haven't emigrated!  Its just the message on this cute little embroidered cloth.  Look at the little koala - sweet.  Wonder who sent it over from Australia?  I found these linens in a local charity shop.


 
Meant to blog about these pretties ages ago, but they've been languishing at the bottom of the ironing pile for weeks a few days.

 
Such lovely vintage embroidery - each flower is a different colour and the border is so pretty.

 
Makes a change from cups and saucers, eh?

 
Love, Liz

Just as lovely. I think it 's much nicer to dab delicately with a pretty hankie than trumpet into a tissue!

Your Australian doily is lovely and very special Liz, they are quite sought after by us Aussies.

It's so nice to have these sweet things when most everything today is mass produced.

I'm intrigued by the Australian doily, I've never seen one of those. The other embroidered doilies are gorgeous.
