These are some great holiday gifts.  The labels come in themes for Christmas, Valentine's, home, French decor, inspirational.  They fit on flameless candles and wine bottles.

This is what the back of the wrapped candle looks like.  Black ribbon is tightened like a corset.

Just a sample of the many Christmas images available.

These are some everyday images.

How to clean your vintage linens and lace

Cleaning your vintage linens and lace.

1/2 Cup Cascade
1/2 Cup Biz
1/2 Gallon of cool to lukewarm water

Fill your washer or tub with cool water - I used my kitchen sink.  Add the Cascade and Biz to the water.  Allow the cloth to soak overnight or at least 8 hours.  Check the stained areas.  If they are clean, drain the solution and rinse in cool water.  Allow to air dry.  If the stains remain, mix a new solution and soak again.  Depending on the type of stains, it may take two or three soaks but they should come out.  Rinse in cool water until all soap is out.
