I wonder if they ever get washed

mail4rosey said...

Every time it rains. ;)

mail4rosey said...

They are, I wonder if they have waterproof starch or something in them. ;)

mail4rosey said...

It reminded me of the Etsy gals who can make something of anything, lol. :)

A talent, I might add, that I do not possess (darn it).

Holy Ghost Writer said...

I thought that too when I previewed the post. I think it's the watermark, it throws it off a bit.
