red and white table setting

Last week, when visiting a neighborhood thrift store (the place where I found the cute pillows in my previous post), I also found this lovely, vintage tablecloth. I thought the red tulips were so cheerful and went perfectly with my red and white dishes.



I love hand-stitched, vintage linens such as tablecloths, pillow cases, and dresser scarves. I think of the woman from years ago who put so much time and love into making something pretty for her home.


And, at Goodwill last week, I stumbled upon these beautiful, red and white Mikasa bowls. Perfect for my table setting and only 99 cents each!

  3. I feel the same way you do when looking at vintage handmade linens, "Who stitched this and what was their life like?". What a great find!
