Last night I pulled out a new-to-me Christmas tablecloth and draped it across the dining room table.
I’m tempted to use some goofy eBay description like “perfect except for” or “nearly mint”, but it’s neither perfect or mint. The fabric isn’t crisp so it’s been washed at least once in the past, but boy, the gold areas have so much texture they’re almost crunchy.
This year our house is full of family so we’re splattering vintage tablecloths with gravy, cranberry sauce (and worse) at every meal. Want to see the fabric casualties? Of course you do! First up, a vividly colored tablecloth festooned (no one ever says this word in real life!) with poinsettias and holly garlands:
Ho ho! Merry Christmas!
Our house will be full of family this holiday season, so we’ve decided to pull out a different vintage tablecloth every day. Last night I set the table for brunch. Only four of us will be sitting down to French toast and Mimosas:

Our one year blog birthday just sort of sneaked by us last week while we were at The Vintage Bazaar. Late or not, we must have a cake! And a candle! And jadeite! And a “new” tablecloth!
We’re not getting fancy. This cake is posing on my kitchen table. I bought the tablecloth at The Vintage Bazaar from Nancy The Linens Lady. (Basically, I want to buy her entire booth.)
I just planted a clump of Stargazer lilies near our front door. A year ago that space was our old driveway, so I had a blank slate for planting, so to speak. A blank plot, I guess.
I love Stargazers because they’re big. And showy. And so fragrant! Just right for near the door.
When I was done watering them in I remembered that I had this big and showy tablecloth to match.
It has a creamy yellow center with a white border and bold lily motifs in the corners. No markings on this tablecloth, so I don’t know who made it.
