The first cut is the hardest

Vintage linens are equal parts wonderful and terrifying when you are deciding to take a scissor to them! 

I scored this bounty of linens at D├ęcor last week and I've been anxious about it ever since. I washed them, inspected them, sorted them, and admired them for a longer amount of time that I'd care to share. I decided on one piece, a linen table runner that had a few stains and went for it. Nothing too crazy, I had to start small. 
I made a few lavender sachets with some of the lace, some vintage fabric, buttons and bits of vintage trim I had stashed away. I even made a cute little apron. 
Now I need to think of a few more ideas!
