If you were trying to find me yesterday, I was locked in my room poring over the pages of Jane Scott Hodges' new book, Linens: For Every Room and Occasion.  There is no way I can do this book justice by using words, and while I will make an attempt, you will have to see for yourself. To call the book an exceptional masterpiece would be an understatement.  Jane has redefined the perfect monogram.

Overflowing with breathtaking images, information, and diagrams on linens for bedroom, bath, and table, this is your go-to-book for anything linen. There is a wealth of necessary information on monograms, linen etiquette, table settings, linen care, storage, and party planning.  

I am sharing just a very few of the images in the book, but there are 235 pages of perfection, friends, and I hope that you ENJOY! Thank you to Jane Scott Hodges, owner of Leontine Linens, for a book that we can pass on for generations.

LINENS: FOR EVERY ROOM AND OCCASION by Jane Scott Hodges | Define Linens: For Every Room and Occasion 
noun 1. masterpiece; keepsake. 2. adjective: flawless;  essential; priceless. The official guide on linens and monograms.

Her monogrammed linens are legend. How great it would be to own a set of monogrammed napkins by Leontine Linens. There are some beautiful rooms attached to the linens in your post. It looks like the book will be wonderful.
