Vintage Finds

Hi I've just come home from a bit of charity shop browsing and look what I found.
Some old books for an altered project I'm that's in the planning stage, a couple of small pretty glasses, vintage packaged bias binding and a table cloth. The whole lot cost me £6.70.
It seems a bit mean to call it just a tablecloth as it really is a work of art. Hand crocheted and pieced cotton it must have taken ages to make. I nearly didn't buy it but I'm so glad I did as it's a pretty good fit for my outside table. I don't think everyone in the household will be as excited as I am about my find though.

I now feel the need to plan a tea party. I can see another Pinterest board being set up with hours of associated browsing. At least if I do have a tea party it will have been time spent productively. I'll let you know ;-)

How great to have found such a pretty cloth to fit a table that size. But are you sure you'd actually want people dripping red wine and squishing strawberries on it though? I think you'll have to only serve white food at this tea party?

I am old enough to remember bias binding in packets like that! What a great find your tablecloth is... Looking forward to seeing your altered project. :)

wow what a brilliant find! I love browsing in charity shops, but I never seem to find anything this good!
