I've been off the grid....literally!
That terrible storm with 60+ mph winds came through last Friday about
midnight, and the power went out. Since we live in the country and
have well water, no electricity not only means no lights or
air-conditioning, but no water. Try living without all of these in
100 degree temps, whew....not so easy. We drove around in the car to
cool off. Doyle especially appreciated it. We also spent a lot of time in our
little blue pool, and Doyle in his" kiddie" pool, which works great for dogs!
So, that's where I been! Power thankfully back on so I'm posting
a tablescape that is red, white and blue. Sorry it's not patriotic, but had no time
for a new tablescape and just had to get blogging before the 4th!
This gorgeous tablecloth was a Secret Santa gift I received in our Christmas
swap at the Vintage Tablecloth Lovers Club (VTLC).
The VTLC is having an amazing contest! Prizes include vintage linens
and some free memberships. If you are a vintage tablecloth person,
check out the link below for all the details. We're a great group!
Also, there is a link to the club website on my sidebar if you'd like to
visit the website first. There are a few pages open to the public.
OK, back to the tablecloth...it has been identified as a probable Wilendur,
however, I've seen it for sale with a Startex label attached, so obviously it's a Startex.
Found these precious Marimekko design plates (with their copyright on bottom
of plate) and made by Pfaltzgraf at my local thrift store, 45 cents clearance.
Did a little research and found they were first produced in 1983 and the design
was retired in 1985. The pattern name? Just found out it is called 3 Flowers.
How original, LOL!
The Wilendur napkins with similar flowers go very well.
Russel Wright covered bowl ($5 at an estate sale),
which is filled with a dogwood Wilendur tea towel.
Sweet blue glasses, same thrift store clearance,
45 cents each, so I grabbed all four.
Not actually a patriotic theme, but certainly is
Hope yor enjoyed a terrific Independence Day!
Is anything more gorgeous than our flag?
