Victoria Classics—Linens, Lace & Monograms

The loveliest new magazine I've seen in ages has landed on the newsstand, a Victoria Classics issue titled "Linens, Lace & Monograms."

As soon as I spotted it, I knew I had to have this one. I especially found useful page 17, which tells us the purpose of various sizes of napkins. Tea napkins, according to the article, are 12 inches square.

I was not at all surprised to spot a few teawares in these pages, but even if I hadn't seen a single teacup, I found it so utterly soothing to simply gaze upon pretty, filmy, lacy, feminine things for a while. I also enjoyed the stories about three enterprising women who followed their passion and made a business out of their love for vintage textiles. I suspect many of you would enjoy this issue as well, so if you spot it while you're out and about, you might want to take a peek inside!

  3. I will have to pick it up. Tea napkins 12 square seem so big. I need to brush up on napkin etiquette before my next tea party! Thank you!

  5. I have an older hardcover book from Victoria on the same beautiful things but wouldn't mind perusing an updated version.
