I've hardly posted this month, mainly because blogging has taken a backseat to other things, but I wanted to share this sweet table cover I found recently. I stopped in an antique mall looking for a small round tablecloth and I wasn't really expecting to find anything I could afford, when I discovered this lovely white lace one. I really like the basket design and the lovely embroidered flowers with the simple scalloped edge.
I'm sure some of you have quite a collection of linens, but I don't have that many that I like, so this little cover will look great on my small table upstairs. It was only twelve dollars, which to me was a bargain for something I really like! It's only 34" around so it is just the right size. It is in very good condition with only a small tear and a few small stains. I'm showing it on our kitchen table downstairs to show the design better. It's just a simple linen tablecloth with a shabby look, but it inspired me to create a small vignette with some other thrifty finds from a recent thrift store visit.
I have some china packed away with no place to put it right now, so I'm using this little salad plate with the rose cup and tea holder. I tend to keep my vignettes pretty simple most of the time anyway. The cup didn't come with a saucer so I placed my little plate on a stand. These are all thrift store finds.
I added a french looking candle holder with my rose ball bouquet. We have a small home with limited storage so I try to reuse things as much as I can. Our living room furniture is in need of an update, but that is on our never ending to do list, so I'm in the middle of rearranging things. I soften my photos a lot with ipiccy photo software. It can come in handy around here!
I love the rose pattern and the swirl design on the edge of the plate. A simple little tea strainer is added to the tea bag holder.
I haven't had time to press the tablecloth yet. It was hanging up but still had quite a few wrinkles. The little plant stand with the faux arrangement was a clearance find at Michael's.
I noticed my plate and tea cup are in every photo. I enjoy the sweet rose pattern. You can make the simplest little vignette look different just by rearranging and doing photo editing.
It would be nice if I had some fresh flowers, but these silk ones fill in nicely. I made this post short and sweet, because I thought I'd better create it before summer fades away! Thanks for stopping by.
