Vintage tablecloths is the heart of my love of linens.
The top right tablecloth was one of my first and is beginning to show it wear, but I still love it. When they have a hole, I just layer it with other tablecloths. I love pairing several together.
I had no idea when I pulled them out to photograph them that there were so many in the cupboard. The tablecloth with yellow roses I use when I have a table at the Portland Rose Society Vendor Fair. It is a fun one to have with a big bouquet of yellow roses.
The second from right one is fun to use when we serve a Mexican dinner or the one second from left is used in the winter with pinecones. You see they are loved, but they are also used. I often have a pile in the ironing. I actually love seeing them there, as I enjoy the pattern as I iron them.
Also just for fun I thought you would like a sneak peek at the greenhouse my husband is building out of recycled windows, floor, bricks, and doors.
The tablecloths mostly come from the 1930's and 1940's.
My favorite era's for style include 1920's through the 1940's, so these fit
very well into our home. But I do believe anyone would enjoy one of these beauties, even if it is maybe for picnics. They really cheer up any picnic table, tea table, company table, or everyday fun table.
There will be more tablecloths to come next week.
