COLLECTION #37: Vintage Table Linens

Today's collection is some (but not all) of my vintage table linens. I just love the fun patterns and cheerful images on these tablecloths and tea towels. As you can see, I gravitate toward reds, yellows and greens, and I especially love fruit and Mexican themed patterns. For those of you who wonder where I keep all these things... actually, only a couple of them are on display. Mostly I keep them in the storage space under the seat of our breakfast nook. But a couple of them are used in my displays, and I regularly use them on my table for festive meals. Every cinco de Mayo, I layer 3 or 4 Mexican themed cloths & tea towels on my table, along with my other Mexican "stuff". (You'll see those things in the months to come).






I intended to shoot all of my linens in one shot, but I have another category that needed it's own featured day and photographs, so I'll put that one up next week.  So, today, enjoy my little retro linen extravaganza!
