Vintage Tablecloths


One of my sweet friends stopped by this morning and brought me so many treasures!!  She and her husband are downsizing from a big house on a farm to a smaller house in town!   She wanted me to have some of her beautiful vintage tablecloths that she no longer has room for....
They are all in excellent condition...

the embroidery on this one is just gorgeous...

the colors are so beautiful....

She also gave me some rolls of paper that she bought several years ago from a florist that was going out of business.


I can't wait to get some inspiration and use them in a project....
she brought me a beautiful lace bed jacket...

some large pieces of lace...

and a sweet doily.

There was also a wonderful hard back decorating book in my stack of treasures!   Thank you so much Nelda!
