Sharing a few of my vintage tablecloths on laundry day!
I hate to iron, and try to buy clothes that can get away with as little
ironing as possible. But ironing my vintage linens is a whole
different story! I love seeing them and touching them, so in this
case ironing fits the bill!
This is a vintage Simtex, pattern name "Delight".
Aptly named, as it is a delight on my table!
Beautiful tablecloths all soaked, washed & ironed.
Tea towels don't get left out. I showed the bride & groom towel before,
cute enough for a 2nd showing. The butterfly and floral vintage pair are by Startex.
Met friends for breakfast yesterday and then made a quick trip to the
flea market with them. YES, the flea market while temps were in the 30's!
There are some very hardy sellers...who set up tables in the winter!
Yup, this particular flea market is open year round. I spied this
wonderful cake carrier on a sellers table and just had to bring it home.
Priced right at $2, and just perfect to sit atop the microwave.
OKAY...CLEAR THE KIDDIES FROM THE ROOM!
We're moving into adult territory here......
I found these 50's or 60's Sweetheart Models playing cards at an
estate sale a couple months ago and knew I couldn't share
them topless, so I've arranged them strategically. ;)
These models look like "real" women, not today's pencil thin
models who look like they need to eat a cookie....or a dozen cookies,
or...well, you get my drift. No photoshop here either. Just a
fun kitschy item from another era. Vintage "risqué" items
are both sought after and collectible.
They were a bit hit at the check-out table where lots of folks were
lamenting about how they had missed seeing them. Even had a
purchase offer, but they came home with me.
Why can't I see those cards?
I joined 2 Valentine swaps and have been having such fun at my crafting table,
even making an extra spoolie for myself and for a friend's birthday that
falls on Valentine's Day. Promise to show it all later.
(Thanks ImagiMeri for sharing wonderful Valentine graphics with us.)
Do you have a favorite tablecloth? Like my cake take-along?
How about the Model cards? (Hope I didn't offend anyone).
Love when you visit ~ have a great week.
