Vintage Thingies Thursday – Tablecloth

This post is part of Vintage Thingies Thursday. On her blog Lisa, the Apron Queen, gives a comprehensive list of the sorts of vintage items which qualify: Briefly, they include vintage linens and textiles, vintage kitchen items, and vintage sewing items.

My vintage item this week is a vintage linen tablecloth from my mother. With its light beige background and brown, mustard yellow and orange fruit and leaves, it will be great for a fall table setting.

The center design is a medley of fruit in a circular group.

The corner design is a basket of fruit with a ribbon on the handle.

Ribbons also hold small bunches of fruit around the border.

I can remember this cloth on the table in my mother’s house and am happy to add it to my table linens.

I love those vintage tablecloths, my late grandmother had a heap of them and thankfully I'm able to use them now too :-)

I love the style of the designs then-- they have a very specific look. I have some floral ones with a similar feel-- they just really look like an oldfashioned, inviting home.

It'll be interesting to see in fall how the table turns out with this as the tablecloth-- I bet it will be lovely.
