Vintage tablecloth "Chickens Today"

"Chickens today...Feathers tomorrow"
This fun tablecloth is currently gracing my table. 
Most of you are familiar with beautiful vintage tablecloths showing off
gorgeous floral & fruit themes.  They are quite popular and liked by most,
but several categories of these wonderful tablecloths abound.

My farm-chickens tablecloth falls into the conversational or novelty
 tablecloths category.  They are such a colorful and whimsical group,
that I have collected more than my share a few.

Yup, "Chickens today...Feathers tomorrow" is more than
 politically incorrect (poor chickens!)  But probably not so
much  in the 1940's & 1950's.
Don't you love that her turquoise pantaloons match her hair? 
I think that polka dot chicken is pretty cute. 

Looks like this couple is so happily looking forward to that chicken
dinner, that they are dancing up a storm! 

A chicken driving the car?  Maybe these chickens are smarter
than they look, and are making a break for it. 

I thought a novelty towel would be a good addition to
the center of the table. 
Busy as a cute is that! 
I plan to showcase more of my vintage tablecloths this year,
while still showing my thrifty finds and crafty things...of course! 

Doyle has been waiting patiently for me to finish.  The sun is
peeking a little, so we're going to step out and enjoy it.

Happy Friday....have a great week-end!!!


  1. I love this table cloth. How fun are those graphics.

  2. I LOVE chickens, your tablecloth is sooooo cute~
    I hope you and Doyle enjoyed your walk, it's too cold and rainy here today.
    Maybe that polkadot hen is a guinea hen!
    Happy weekend,
    Dorothy and Ms.Wilma

  3. You have the most unique tableclothes ever! It's fun to see them. Thank you so much for your help with "any soldier". We did good. Cute photo of Doyle. I mailed your package today!

    1. I mailed yours out yesterday Deb. Glad there was such a warm response to the Any Soldier swap. My hubby helped at an event held for a group of Wounded Warriors today. We owe these soldiers so much.

  4. I love this tablecloth. I kept giggling when I saw it. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  5. What a fun tablecloth. I'm glad you will continue featuring them this year. If you are stepping out with Doyle, that must be a good sign on your healing!!

  6. That's a fun one and perfect for a farmhouse table!

    You and Doyle have a wonderful weekend~

    Ha! Erica ;)

  15. Doyle reminds me of a Brittainy Spaniel I once loved ... and hey, she lived on a chicken farm! Love the tablecloth!

  16. (oh piffle posh, I tried to comment from my iPad twice and first it went POOF and then it wouldn't "paste" my copied comment ARGH! typing from real computer now, fingers crossed!)

    You are the tablecloth Queen! I love this cloth Pam, novelty cloths are so much fun and this is so charming. Adore your candle holders too, a perfect match.
    I was so sad to read that another blogger who always had the most wonderful cloths and table settings, Candy of The Round Table, had passed away! I used to see her lovely things on one of the linky parties I participated in and since those blog parties have gone quiet, hadn't visited her in awhile. :(

    Happy Wednesday! Woof woof to Doyle!

    1. Yes, I am aware she passed away. She used to be a member of the tablecloth club I belong to. Someone told me her blog was still up but appeared to have been hijacked. She owned exorbitant amounts of Fiesta, in every color it seemed, and set a beautiful table.

  17. I love your table cloth. What a cute retro find:)

  18. I enjoy using the old table cloths too! Your valentine crafts in the previous post are delightful and wow that Valentine surprise was terrific!


Your comments make me smile! Thanks.
