I wanted to send a big thank you out to Andrea Drexelius from French Basketeer and Metis Linens for sending me this beautiful package of vintage linens and vintage French brass curtain rings that can be used as napkin rings. I won these lovely items in a giveaway on Karen Albert’s blog Art By Karena. The brass rings are incredibly gorgeous and the two linens towels have the most beautiful texture to them, owing to their age and use. Something that cannot be replicated. They are also huge and could nearly be used as small table cloths!
Metis Linens Boutique, aka Le Magasin de Metis, is a partnership between Andrea of The French Basketeer and the lovely Laura Ingalls Gunn, interior designer and writer of the blog Decor to Adore. Le Magasin offers French textiles and they “sprinkle in a few fun and flavorful antiques”
