Vintage Whites

There is something about a jar full of vintage whites that is so calming.
I had a bag of lace and a bag of baby shoes that I've been wanting something to do with,
then in my stach of stuff that I keep for a rainy day I found these two jars, so why not marry the two together.

I picked up these vintage salt bags at an estate sale this weekend

and alot of vintage white linens.

Yes I redid it, I usually pass up these ugly Italian lights, but someone gave me this one free so I had nothing to lose here is the link I did the post in March If you ever see one snag it. Looking forward to following you!
