set and match point!


tablecloth and napkins on the drying line.only two tiny specks ,which i surely can live with, in sight.
i was informed that even uv radiation could bleach.let's see if the radiation in my terrace  is enough .
this city  is so sickeningly self appointed hip and cool that anything that smells old fashioned is totally banished.hence my issues trying to find savon de marseille in bars. gel is  cool  and modern contemporary, but soap bars that have this hand-wash - like- in- the- old- days connotation? no way! will have to take the train to a small town in the vicinity and try my luck.

  1. I'm glad your method worked - that tablecloth is really beautiful!

  2. a little lemon juice while in the sun might help.

    I've been following your linen saga with interest. Two friends, who are professional textile conservators - both working for large museums - say to never use bleach on linen - it weakens the fibre and will turn yellow eventually. Both also are unshakeable in their belief that lavender does not protect against moths or carpet beetles which come into the house on flowers?? go figure. My Mom always bleached all linens out on the snow. Good luck with the soap bars.

  4. Have a look in your local Bazaar Chino. I see bars of Savon de Marseille there from time to time.

  5. Bella tovaglia, ti penserò per Natale


interaction appreciated!
