Hot Town, Summer in the Country...

Don't know where you live, but our whole
country sure is hot right now.  We've been having August 
temperatures for a  couple weeks.  When it's too hot to
be outside, I'm always happy to play with my linens!
 Time to freshen, wash, and iron in the cool A/C.  

Colorful Wilendur Mexicali

 Original tag present, but removed so tablecloth could be washed.
See that $3 thrift store price?  Yeah, that wasn't my find!  

Pastel vintage aprons.

Another Wilendur, pattern is Meadow Bloom.

This cutie is a "topper", or small tablecloth.

Sweet graphics!

Always love Vera, perfect butterfly napkins.   

I found this old terry dish towel.  Mod looking pattern & colors

The washing and ironing is never done at my house, but
strange as it sound...I love to iron my vintage tablecloths,
towels and aprons.  Nothing prettier than fresh linens!  

Thanks for taking a break from the heat with me.  😍
Stay cool and enjoy your summer!  

PS/Some of these linens can be found in my Etsy shop.

Spring Into Summer!

Well here we are with Spring rushing right along
into Summer.  It seems like we wait so long for it
to arrive then it is gone like a blink!  

The gorgeous Peonies have come and gone.

The camping season has begun!

And soon the crabs will be fat and tasty for steaming.  

I thought you might like to see this Skotch Kooler Grill.
I know it looks just like an old Skotch Kooler, but this one is a
BBQ Grill!  According to the maker it has been "Scientifically
Tested".  Wonder if these ever took off?  

 The old label helps to make it great vintage fun.  

 The bottom is marked Pat Pending.

I need to re-stock my Etsy shop as far as linens, but love
to share a few photos of my vintage tablecloths, and know
folks enjoy seeing them.  

 Vintage Simtex Tablecloth.  Sweet mix of colors.

 Such a fun pattern, and the coral &blue are great together.  

Well used and faded, but still pretty.  Paired for sale
with another pink tablecloth as "cutters".  

Adorable Runner, Napkins & Placemat Set
 Varying degrees of fading on the borders, but still so sweet!  

 I couldn't resist these vintage lace collars at a recent
estate sale.  Ah, the feminine old fashioned beauty!  

Have a couple more and will be listing them soon.

Hope you are enjoying your Spring into Summer with the
same great weather we are having right now.

May Flowers!

I have a few May flowers for you today!

First, the real thing.  Gorgeous peonies!

We have a resident who donates peonies from her garden
filled with at least 50 bushes.  Our local florist sells them for
12 stems for $10.  All proceeds to our local Historic Society.  
Love to buy them every year, and lucky to get some 
before they were gone.  

Now for some beautiful tablecloth florals.
This beauty was sent by my generous blogging friend Wendy.
Since I am thinning the herd, the sale of this lovely goes
to my local Animal Care Society.  A great cause!  You'll
find it in my Etsy shop.  

Another beauty and something different.  Lily pad florals
in the prettiest Coral or Salmon color.  

Another beauty... lovely floral nosegays.
Grab a cup of tea and browse.  

Guess I need to be thinking about a June post.  We just returned from
a camping trip so I'll be sharing that next time. 

Here is a quick breakfast table I did!
 Marlene Linens tablecloth, Hazel Atlas dishes.  

Thanks for the visit!
