Would you pass this up??

Several months ago, I stopped in at one of my favorite thrift stores. It happened to be their once a month 1/2 price day.

As I was looking around, I thought I would check out the linens that are in the back room. I've never found much there, but you know, you just have to take a peek.

And guess what I found all waded up?

This beautiful vintage table cloth plus 8 matching napkins!!

The price??? It was marked $12.99. Sooooooo..............
for $6.50 I brought home these gorgeous vintage table linens.

And just to make sure it all would work, I tried it out, with a tablescape :-)

Now tell me, how could I pass this up??

I have a vintage cloth and 12 napkins that were my Great Grandmothers. She ran a boarding house for a time before she moved to Colorado. Mother remembers her mother using it at holidays, and I have used it a few times myself. The connection over the generations is great!

You were very smart to not pass that up! The tables cape looks beautiful.

Love it! I have trouble passing up linens also, but with teenagers in the house, don't always want to use them!

Absolutely beautiful. Lucky you. Enjoy. On the other hand, this would make a great base for a project for you to do with the "Linen Ladies" via Cindy Needham's techniques for restoring/renewing old linens.
