I found my Mom's dish towels. She embroidered these when she was a teenager in the 1940s and put them in her hope chest (that's another blog). I washed and starched them and then framed them. I put them in my laundry room. I love them and smile every time I enter the room.
They also help me hide the fuse boxes. Hope you find a treasured heirloom and please share your pictures.
