Vintage Tablecloths for June

Ah summer!  Our temperatures have been sizzling and we
have had a lot of rain and storms, even losing electricity for a day.
Summer is well underway!

I'm really not prepared with an "I'm Back" post, so for starters
I will share some of the tablecloths that have been
showing off in my dining room.


This tablecloth may be a Broderie, but I am not certain.
This one is a beauty, with exceptional colors.  I have given my new Fiesta
candlestick holders a work-out this month, and my green Fenton jadeite also.


This next tablecloth is made by Calaprint, pattern is "South of the Border".


Love the adorable children, and once again the color combination.



Think pink!  How pretty are the pink and soft green tones together?

The maker of this beautiful tablecloth is unknown to me.

Tutti Fruity!  Once again, love the unusual blue & orange /yellow color combos.

Maker of this beauty also unknown.  


Put on your sunglasses!  Bright yellow, orange and green can't
help but perk up the table on rainy days.  

Manufacturer is Parisian Prints, pattern is "Fruits Jubilee".  

I'll end with a favorite, a unique tablescape highlighting the
Lobster tablecloth, a very popular Wilendur tablecloth.
This patio lobster theme setting was done a few years ago, but is a favorite of mine!

Hope you enjoyed seeing my tables.  Thanks for stopping by!  
I have lots of blogs to catch up on and should be back to regular posting.

Spring Break



Taking a short spring break.

Be back by summer...a few short weeks away. 

Me too.

Quick Friday Hodge Podge

Hooray Friday!  
We have a weekend house guest coming, and I haven't
 posted in a bit, so a quick hodge podge to share!

A beautiful spring vintage tablecloth, of course.  
Fenton cobalt bowl and candlestick holders.
The 3-piece Fenton set a steal at $14.

I really need to redo my tablecloth shelves, so maybe if I show this
somewhat messy photo, I will be inspired.  💖
 You can see all my collector books on the middle shelf.  

Another view.  My tablecloths live in the guest room/office.
It's pretty cute, want to come visit.  Like the vintage Heywood
Wakefield club chair in the corner?

Heywood Wakefield student desk & chair. 
Love this room, small but both cute & useful.  

Mr. Retro is doing great, and the doctor finally released him from 
wearing the neck collar last week.  Also, he is returning to
work light duty.  He is very pleased, we both are.  It has been
difficult to be without his salary for three months, on top of 
paying his portion of the humongous medical bills.  But I digress...

He decided to try and bake a cake outdoors in our
dutch oven, a  preview before we try it camping.  

Doesn't it look beautiful?  Wait...it gets better!

It is a Pineapple Upside Down cake, and here it is 
right side up!  Mr. Retro gets an A+.

Wish I could linger, but are we really ever ready for house guests?

Thanks for the visit & have a great weekend!
