Linen Overhangs

One of my first stops at the Brimfield Antiques Show last weekend was a vintage linen booth where I have had luck in past years.  There was a table full of these lovely embroidered beauties.  The sign read "German Overhangs" 2 for $15, so I dove in and found these 2 keepers.  This style is new to me, but maybe you have seen it before.  The top part is embroidered on the backside so that it can hang over a rod etc. for a nice finished look.

These have so many of the things I look for in linens (beautiful embroidery, lace trim, vibrant colors).  Each piece makes such a statement.  They would be perfect for a bathroom or laundry room window treatment, or as a skirt for a sink or cabinet opening.  It is always fun to see something new.  Have you found anything new recently?  

Have you entered my giveaway?
