~new to the linen shoppe & faded blooms~

Hello friends!!



First of all...the weather report....
we have had HOT weather for the last 4 days!!
amazing huh??
So beautiful ~ it almost makes you
forget about all the rain......almost....




evidently, until now we haven't had 3 days in
a row of sunshine since last fall!!!!!
oh my goodness! and you all thought I was
just whining huh??? ;)

I thought you might like to see a couple new
products I added to the

New table runners just in time
for outdoor dining & bbq's!




This cute little runner has frayed edges,
and raw edged ruffles....it's made
 with a nice lightweight cotton....




same lightweight cotton fabric, frayed edges,
with a monogram of your choice....






I love this graphic!!
frayed edges & shabby yumminess!

Affordable & fun for your
summertime entertaining!

~*~
In the garden.....

I picked my peonies earlier than normal this year
(due to massive rain....ahem.....)
...and we've been enjoying them for awhile now...
they are now quite faded & ready to be tossed, but
I just love the way they look all faded & tattered!!!
(imagine that!! ;)

Although I'm sure a better camera (on the wish list....)would produce more impressive pictures ~
I thought I'd share a couple anyway ;)




I just love the paper-like look when
they dry....


and lastly, my favorite bloom....


Hope you have a fantastic weekend!!



xoxo,



Shellagh

Your table runners are just gorgeous! You have been busy! You should take the peonies out of the water and let them dry. They will look beautiful for a long time!

Oh! Oh! Oh! I LUV that Rue de Olive runner, too, Shellagh!!!! It's my favorite!!!! The tattered edges really make it look so rustically sweet. :) Hard to believe you guys have had that much rain. July here has been so hot and dry and humid! I've been hiding inside with the AC turned on full blast working on some projects. Too hot to be outside! Hope you're doing well, sweetie!
