Tablecloth for White Wednesday

I bought this vintage tablecloth for fifty cents at a garage sale.

Cannot believe that price. Can you?

I find it just spiffy for my fall table. You saw that yesterday. I hope!

  5. I am having comment issues on my computer today, so if this is a repeat, just delete it. Anyhow, I imagine that took someone a long time to embroider, so why would it end up at a thrift store. But at least it's in good hands now! Love the yellow daisy like flowers on it. I also am in love with your mummy/zombie guy from the previous post!

  6. Very pretty!! What a great price. Isn't it sad that people practically give away stuff that someone worked so hard on?

  8. Hi Olive,
    I look at those beautiful embroidered pieces and just think about all the time that someone put into making it. Can't believe someone let it go for 50 cents, but I think it found the right home.

  21. I love vintage linens, too! You just don't see that kind of workmanship anymore! Or should I say "work-Womanship"?! What a bargain!
