Vintage linens at The Farm.

Do you have a linen collection stashed away at your house? Pillowcases made gorgeous with  lace or fancy embroidery. . . tablecloths. . . doilies. . . all made by hand with love by someone way back when.    Why is it that we keep them hidden away in  our closets and cedar chests?    Our display here at The Farm features multiple pieces, but it's okay to show off just one or a few at a time too.    Hang them on a ladder,  across a towel rack or a curtain rod;  insert a little one in a picture frame . . .   Cheryl suggests changing out our linens to match the seasons--much  more economical than buying new lamps or other home decorating accents, and then we get to enjoy them again and again.  So what's your favorite way to display your linens?
