Vintage Picnic



My picnic hamper is always close by (I use it to store empty egg cartons--we have chickens--on the top of the fridge). But it's nice to haul it out for a picnic now and then.



I know I keep saying "this is one of my favorite WHATEVER", but I really do have a thing for vintage linens so you can see what kind of trouble I'm in with them. But I love applique embroidery work and this flower pot of ivy theme really sends me!



I came across a box of 500 doilies at the thrift store--I think they must have been from a restaurant supply--mine now! I use them everywhere.



Strawberry picnic ware.



Recent vintage chicken towel, but oh so cheery!




Here's a full view of my little polka dot pot tablecloth.



And 5o's print cherry table cloth--One of my favorites! What can I say?!




Thanks so much for popping over to see me! Ciao! for now!

Oh Boy! Must be a berry kinda day ;) My post is about strawberries too. I love those strawberry glasses...did you find them recently? The table linens are my weakness too. There is just something about the themes and colors.
Hope you stop by soon!

I love all the red and green things. The flowerpot with the ivy is especially cute.

Karen said...

Loved looking at your linens. I think I have the one you have pictured last with the cherries. I've always wanted to make a blouse out of the tattered and torn ones, but then.. I can't sew!!
Have a great week.

That ivy tablecloth is very cute. I've never seen one like that before. But my favorite would have to be the cherry one. You can't go wrong with cherries.
