Why linen? Flax, from which linen is made, is known to be the strongest natural fiber in the world.

But let’s face it. Our Belgian linen sofa has been around for about 15 years so there are a few areas with wear.

And you can ask my husband…I absolutely adore that we have worn little holes in the linen!

I do! I think this is so very European of us!

Does it mean we’ll dump the pieces with worn linen? (These counter stools below? Also have some places where the linen is so worn, it is beautifully threadbare.)

Is it even any wonder one of the first decor blogs I ever discovered and fell in love with is titled VELVET and LINEN?

    Love the “verse” from Problemurbs 31:2! It is SO me these days what with revitalizing our 2 acres of grounds, the apple orchard and vineyard. I will giggle for days and days thinking of this. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Also, I’m happy to see you too like the sort of wrinkly look of linen. I have one linen jacket and though I’ve tried to iron it, it fails to keep that look…I’ve decided “wrinkly is best”…sorta like me 😉

      Hahaha – I’m so glad. Your adventures of renovating this property fill my imagination with beauty – what a lovely undertaking that is. Long live the un-ironed linens that only improve with age like us! Happy Sunday, lovely. xox

    I’m afraid linen is not for me. I bought a linen dress back in the nineties. First time I wore it, I was a wrinkled mess. It all started with my seatbelt, then sitting through a briefing. Oh.my..gosh! I tried starching it but it still wrinkled quickly. Donate! My OCD doesn’t allow wrinkles, or sags, or anything out of place. But, thank you for the lesson on linen. Your house is a dream, even if you are a linen fan. 😉

      Great feedback about real life wearing linen! I couldn’t live without it in my wardrobe or home. I don’t own a garment steamer and could not tell you where my iron is! Ha! Happy weekend, friend.

    Oh sweet girl, my iron and steamer are my best friend. We differ on our feelings of linen (wrinkles) but our minds meet up on so much more. Love your thoughtful words, your serenity, your heart, your soul…

      You’re so good – and I was raised by parents who could not tolerate wrinkles and ironed EVERYTHING. I was the kid with those perfect creases! Our linen closets had perfectly, uniform towels in tidy stacks too. Beds were carefully made. My own linen closets aren’t too disorderly, but they don’t compare to my mama’s. I think I was destined to rebel a little! Hahahaha. A hard act to follow since both of my folks are still so masterful about order.

      I love sleeping on linen sheets – they truly surprised me since I thought they would not be warm enough for winter! I can imagine that gets pricey for custom! Peace to you, friend. Thanks for reading.
