"Touch-N-Tear" & Vintage Tablecloths

A quick share of a fun find!
I went to a church sale a couple weeks ago and was tickled to see
this on the table.  "Touch-n-Tear", automatic dispenser for plastic wrap,
wax paper, or aluminum foil. 
Imagine not only keeping this, but keeping the original box.  The woman's hairdo
and green color of the dispenser makes me think late 60's or early 70's.

Since I spent a whole dollar for it, I should use it, right?
 I think I'll hang it in my craft space to hold wax paper.
It's sort of retro cute.
I had just cleaned these fresh green beans, delicious...
and delectable in my new blue Pyrex bowl. 
Sure I'm going to show off the tablecloth peeking out under the bowl.
This is a well used, but well loved, vintage Simtex tablecloth.
It has seen many tables, dining to porch to picnic.
No worries about staining when we eat on this one, since it already
has stains, and a couple patches. 
 I thought these thrifted blue bowed candlestick holders looked sweet, and again
 the Pyrex bowl, with some yummy peaches this time.

I do love my vintage tablecloths!
I borrowed this cute image from the VTLC (Vintage Tablecloth Lovers Club).
I can relate!  :)
Doyle is enjoying summer with a cool swim in the lake.
He loves swimming & here he is fetching his toy duck.
Hard to believe it is almost mid August.  Enjoying your summer?


  1. Hi! That table cloth is really pretty. I love vintage things too! Especially tea cups. :)
    I hope you check out my blog and follow by email. I hope you enter my current giveaway too! :)

  2. I can't believe how quickly this summer has gone! Ahh!!

  3. I would have never guessed you love vintage tablecloths! LOL! Love that funny image...perfect for you! Doyle is so cute! Is the lake near your home? Have a delightful day!

    Hugs, Vicky

  4. Love this cloth! It reminds me of everyday dining! Just homey! LOL! Doyle is having a great time, wish I had a lake to jump in!

  5. Oh Pam, the vintage image about table cloths gave me a good chuckle :) You are too cute, my friend. I get that way about tea cups and doilies.

    Thinking of you.... Love and hugs!

  6. I too can totally relate to that silly image!!


  7. Oh wow when I saw that dispenser I thought hey didn't mom have one of those when I was a kid, so I would say your late 60's early 70's is probably right on :) Sweet tablecloth and I love that cartoon about the sales, my mom could sniff out a garage sale like nobody back in the day. Doyle looks like he is really enjoying summer!

  8. I'm intrigued by that dispenser...of COURSE you should use it! Does it work? $1 well spent!! I'm pretty sure that whatever you happen to put in that lovely bright blue pyrex bowl is going to look fabulous. I love seeing Doyle enjoying himself in the water. I've had two wonderful dogs (Rosie & Gracie) that enjoyed swimming, but Gus & Clyde...not so much. Water equals torture for them! :) --Fran p.s. I love your vintage tablecloths too!

  9. Hi Pam!
    I just love the vintage wax paper dispenser, I haven't seen one of those in years! Always love to see your pretty tablecloths too. It has been so hot here, I feel like going for a swim with Doyle in that lake!

  10. Cool paper dispenser and love the fruit table cloth. Doyle looks like he love the lake.
    partners for the fall pocket letter swap will be posted soon

  11. Hi Pam! I haven't talked to you in awhile, I've been on vacation. I love the automatic dispenser. You should definitely use it in your craft room! Love the tablecloth and the Pyrex bowel. Both are beautiful! I'll keep my eye out for you when I come across tablecloths at garage sales, estate sales, etc!

  12. Hi Pam! Oh I love church sales!! Sadly I haven't been to any all summer (yet) ;) Absolutely love the vintage table cloth image!!! That's so cute! I think I may need to borrow it too! :) Doyle looks so happy retrieving in the lake!! Hope you're having a wonderful week, happy weekend! xo Holly

  13. Pretty tablecloth and I love that cartoon!!! I think I have found only one vintage tablecloth all summer!

  14. I just love your graphic on your cartoon! You really do find the BEST things. Doyle looks very happy in the water. We've been in our lake as much as possible this summer too.

  15. Ok Pam love your church sale find Atomic Age words to my heart.
    Great bright summery tablecloth.
    Love the borrowed image.
    And Doyle looks like he's having a good time.
    Have a great week.
