Vintage Pink Linens

I'm so sorry to be posting so late but some how I got one of those little stomach bugs but now I am better. 
Today for PS I am sharing a set of vintage linens.
They were carefully wrapped in tissue paper all these years and never used.
I think they must have been a treasured wedding gift because all the other linens that I bought at this estate sale were definitely  used.



 This is the dish towel made of linen, the woman is painted on in pink and gray with an organza type skirt ruffle. Her parasol also has the same ruffle.

Here is the toaster cover which I had to stuff to get it to stand up because my toaster/ bagel maker is much to big. And then the piece below completes the set. My husband thought it might be a breadbox cover but I am not sure. Any ideas? It is 19" wide by 13" tall by 9 1/2" deep. We estimate the age to be between the 30's and 50's any other ideas? Happy Pink Saturday to you and I hope to get around to see you all this weekend after I check in with 
Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.Enjoy your weekend! Meg

Hi, Meg,
Sorry to hear you have been ill. The stomach bug is no fun at all. Glad you are better now. I really enjoyed your vintage linens. I collect southern belles and that is what this sweet lady reminds me of. Have a happy weekend. Vicki

Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comment. How sad that they were unused. I don't believe in "saving" things for company or for later. I hope you will let them live up to their potential :)

Meg, I am not sure why the pictures were not showing up. Would you mind looking again and let me know if you can see them? Thanks. Vicki

Your linens are gorgeous! I think your husband is right about the bread box cover. I hope your flu is gone and that you are having a wonderful weekend!
