A New Week: Tablecloths & Caregiving

Happy Spring!
I'm celebrating with a pair of tablecloths I won together on eBay.

Both have aqua!  
This one is so cute with it's plants and spices.  
 Made by Sun Glo, pattern is Salt & Pepper.

And this one I have coveted for years.
Made by Marlene Linens, pattern name is "Glass Shelf".

This tablecloth is a favorite of collectors and usually the price goes sky high.
Don't you love the mid-century items?  Casseroles, coffee pots, carafes, and the
cute black bird olive holder is my favorite. 

 I grabbed it in a "Buy It Now" on eBay, $16 for the two vintage tablecloths.  
My gift to myself for being such a good caregiver to Mr. Retro.  
This is the adorable basket they gave him his last day of work.  Lots 
of useful goodies, and fun stuff too.  He especially liked the bath
ducky and the "Butt Paste".  😁

He is doing well for 2 weeks post-op.  He is supposed to walk and move about
 within his limitations.  He has to wear a hard collar for two months for neck
support.   It is very difficult for him to sleep comfortably, but he has no choice.

Doyle and I are keeping Mr. Retro busy as much as possible,
 but there is still a whole lot of napping going on.  What could
be better than a warm dog snuggling on your lap?

I hope to do more visiting and commenting this week.
These two guys have been keeping me hopping!

Thanks for the visit, have a great week!

Thank You - Luck of the Irish

 Luck of the Irish
Well I do have some Irish heritage.  Some of that luck was with us last week.
Mr. Retro's surgery "went well", wonderful words to hear from the surgeon.  
He has a long recovery but we are on the way.  

Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers.

Being a caregiver is not leaving me time for creating new tablescapes,
so I am sharing last year's St. Patrick's Day table with you.

This sweet vintage tablecloth is "Hearts N' Flowers",
made by Leacock.

Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
& a good week my friends.

Go visit the fab St. Patrick's Day Tables!

UPDATE Prayer - Support Request

"Tea and sympathy has been used as an expression that means
 showing kindness and lending a sympathetic ear to someone 
who is troubled or upset."

Well friends, right now I could use some tea and sympathy.

My dear hubby is having surgery this week.  It is a serious
 and complicated procedure.  I am asking for support in
whichever way you favor.
Positive thoughts
Good wishes

 He has always protected and taken very good care of me.
 Now it is my turn to do the same for him.

I will be taking a blog break for awhile, but will
continue to visit you when I can.
Thank you in advance for your support.

My husband's surgery went well.  He has a long recovery ahead, but
But the worst is behind him now.  Thank you so much for
All your prayers,  good thoughts and kind words.
