Tiny Embroidered Tablecloth...




While Thrift shopping a few weeks ago...

I came across this darling wee tablecloth...

It has all sorts of different flowers....

Each one...

Embroidered and named...

Such detail...

And a blanket stitch all around...

In 2 tones of blue...no less!!! 

Thought you might like to see it...

Enjoy......   























              Another beautiful day here in Florida....

              had 2 long walks....and had a few beers and some grouper

                    chowder down the road...delish..:o)

       Here is another picture of my sweetie that I took before we left...

 


Tonight is Downton Abbey night...

     Think I'll do my nails...and some more crocheting...nearly done  :o)


         Hope you all had a great day...

              Warming up tomorrow for you in Southern Ontario...

                  Watch out for the puddles!!!!


            Enjoy your evening...

                  Cheers!    :o)

  2. I can't believe the things people give up to thrift stores. Somebody obviously spent hours and hours on that beautiful tablecloth and someone just tossed it. A real treasure for you, though!

Great for having a little look and putting in some nice relaxing time. Check it out. Rainy/slushy - here we go into another chapter of winter. Enjoy the lovely weather!!
