Luther Travis Mid-Century Tablecloth!

Just a quick update!

A favorite of collectors...well, a favorite 
of just about anyone who loves vintage tablecloths!

Luther Travis Christmas Tablecloth

This is a tablescape I shared on  my blog last December.  


I've been working on my Etsy shop and decided to offer this large and fabulous 
vintage tablecloth for sale this year.  I've owned it 20+ years, time to share
this beloved beauty.  

Luther Travis was an artist and textile designer in the 1960-1970's era.
 He signed his tablecloth designs, a bonus for all of us.  


Take a peek to see this or my other vintage
Christmas tablecloths!  

Etsy is sponsoring a holiday sale, which I am joining in
Starting 11/22/2017.  You can see the details on my 
shop page as of the 22nd.  


Have a Happy Thanksgiving...hope you will be sharing
it with family and friends!   See you in a week or so.

Are you ready for the holidays?

Are any of us really ever ready?  
But ready or not, here they come!  

Thanksgiving is a week away and we don't even have a turkey yet!
So what to do?  Go camping!

We decided to go camping for what will probably be the last
time this year.  Priorities are important!  

 Doyle always enjoys it, even though he has to stay on his
 leash.  There are exciting new smells and sights for him.
The squirrels know to keep their distance.  Luckily.  

 I always bring a vintage tablecloth for the picnic table, and the table
inside the camper.  Oops!  Left the bag at home.  No worries, found this one
 while out shopping. Lots of stains makes it the perfect camping tc!

 Of course we always shop the local antique shops, etc.  
I stopped dead when I spied this Christmas beauty in a fun booth.
My heart did the pitter-patter thing, and I leaned in to read the price tag.

 Really?  NFS!  Sigh........

 I love this type of booth and got lost in it for awhile.

I couldn't resist these sweet vintage tea towels.  They kinda
made up for missing out on the the tablecloth.  

It was a great weekend!  Very chilly but we were prepared, had a
large campfire, and our little Aliner camper has a great heater.

Now I suppose I'd better go get the turkey and cranberries.😏

Are you ready or getting ready for the holiday season?
Here's to a wonderful Thanksgiving for us all!  
Thanks for visiting.

11th Tea Cup Exchange at The Enchanting Rose

I joined in the Tea Cup - Mug Exchange held by
Stephanie at The Enchanted Rose in September.


Her exchanges are amazing!  About 200 folks participated in 
this, her 11th exchange.

Here is the package I sent to Martha in California.  



Lovely pink flowered teacup.


Here is the wonderful package I received from my new friend
 Kris in Nebraska.  Such thoughtful gifts!  

Kris spoiled me with a garden flag, doilies, tea and coffee, tiny box,
and this darling mid-century teacup.  Teacup love! 

I hope you will take a few minutes to visit Stephanie's
reveal of the exchange packages.
