Just showing off a favorite tablecloth and a
little Halloween crafting.
Warning~Lots of photos!
I am adding a lot of photos of this prized tablecloth so you can enjoy
the gorgeous detail. The tablecloth was made by Leron Linen Company,
which has been around since 1930. They make high quality linens, and
are still in business today selling bed and bath linens online.
My research has shown this tablecloth to be from the 1950's, and is a difficult one to find.
I happened upon this one at an antique market show in South Florida.
I love how the dolphin candlestick holders (Metropolitan Museum of Art reproduction
from1984) look on this cloth, like they were made for it!
The center bowl is Carnival glass Iris design.
Some close ups of the design.
The graphics made me swoon. I had to have it! Did a little bargaining,
but paid more than I had previously paid for any tablecloth.
So glad I splurged. I have been enjoying it's beauty for about 20 years now.
Isn't it gorgeous?
Changing tracks completely, I've been on a crafting binge.
Ever since I joined two Halloween swaps, I've had orange and black
all over my craft table, thinking and playing.
Here are a few things I came up with.
None of these were for my swap partners, so can show them. :)
I'll be selling at the little consignment shop and maybe a
craft bazaar ~ fun!
This decorated cookie cutter is not for the swap either.
Added a yo yo to the back.
I got a little carried away with all the stuff I put on the cards, but I was having such fun
that I couldn't stop myself. I think I could hear Jim Carrey in the Masque saying ~
"SOMEBODY STOP ME!" ;)
Have you started any fall crafting?
On another note, we are getting less tomatoes. The little sweet Cherry and Juliet
tomatoes are still producing. That could be because the temps are still in the 90's.
Since last week-end. YUCK!
C'mon Mom, turn off that laptop and let me out to play!
Okay Doyle, you know I can't resist that face.
Sharing a few photos of what Doyle enjoyed last week-end
before I close. Swimming and retrieving his fake duck.
Happy "Friday Eve" Day & Have a great week-end!
