Vintage Tablecloth ~ LOVE

Are you like me and LOVE table cloths but when it comes to using them it is only on special occasions? When I get a bundle like these I really don't know why I don't use them more often. Funnily though in only using them occasionally it has become a sign, when I do put one on the table, that there is going to be a party and a feast. My children when they were young, used to find this very exciting. Even now that they are almost grown I know they find it special.

I wish I had taken some before photos because honestly this one, which is such a beauty...just imagine the hours it took to create, was sooo yellow when I purchased it I really wondered if it was worth it. It can be a bit of a gamble with linen. But thanks to NAN they have all come up so beautifully. They are crisp and starched and look like they have hardly seen a moment of use.




Wonderful vintage colours and designs.

The red and white are perfect for this time of year.


Charming kookaburra. All of these have headed over to The Cottage Garden Nursery in East Brisbane. I hope you all have a happy weekend....more storms on the cards for Brisbane.

  8. I am a real sucker for Vintage Tablecloths, yours are gorgeous. I threw all my horrible place mats away years ago and always use a tablecloth now. No point having them if they are hidden away.

  9. I love all your old tablecloths! I recently bought myself a Waltzing Matilda one for my collection. I seemed to recollect at the time that my mother has one too ... and she does. How could I pass it up for $4!

  10. Hence, it is important to create websites with both attractive design and
    functional search engine results page features to get better
    search engine ranking. There are whole Web sites devoted to the most relevant and
    most searched terms for the product first.

  11. When you look for books about lawnmowers at Amazon, your browser sprouts ads for gardening equipment.
    Social trends and ways that people search for often, but is certainly worth the effort.
    That's all this post is about food or Cause Skin Damage Being Unfair.

  12. It is all about how much visibility it receives.

    an optimizers package charges should come within the amount that you have the price range its worth the
