Vintage Tablescape, Vintage Post Cards

I wanted to show you my new thrift store tablecloth.
I haven't identified the maker, but think this may be 60's era
with its geometric pattern and Bohemian look.

The sun streaming in gave the whole table a kind of glow. 

A quick and simple fall table.  The colors in the tablecloth are perfect.
I used my Hazel Atlas platonite Moderntone dishes from the 40's, and
vintage glasses whose stripes just happened to match!  My very old Shawnee
corn S&P shakers fit right in.  Fenton jadeite 3-toed dish off in the corner.  
The coffeepot also a thrifting find, Tirschenreuth China, Bavaria.  

I also wanted to share these sweet vintage Thanksgiving post cards with you.  
I love the old graphics and sentiments.  Bonus if there is a hand
written message and postmark on the back.

This one is dated 1917, signed by Isabelle, who writes..
."I suppose you will have a big fat turkey on Thanksgiving".  

"When the apples are gathered, and the brown nuts fall, may
you find it the happiest time of all."

I'm adding a photo of my friend Joan's table that she shared with me.
This beautiful tablecloth is made by Leacock, pattern name is Oak Leaves.
Just love all the sweet little acorns on her table.

Getting my post cards out made me realize that Thanksgiving is only
2 1/2 weeks away!  We are at the throes of the busiest holiday season.
Are you ready...set...go...for the next couple months?

Have a great week!

  8. Beautiful! I remember that coffeepot from a previous post. I love old postcards, I can't help but think about the sender of the one from 1917-- I imagine she couldn't possibly have foreseen that nearly 100 years later, we would be so enthralled with what she wrote!! :) --Fran
