I think of these tablecloths as Summer prints, and only use them in the growing season. Spring, summer, and a bit in fall.
I'm sure they were used year round. As clotheslines were as well, of course.
But mine will soon be put away, and I will opt less for a breezy morning at the back fence.
Almost all of my 50's print tablecloths show their steady function in a household. They have stains and wear that clearly demonstrate their daily cheery presence at the center of busy lives. But they still have a few miles to go.
For now they'll get a final airing, and a photograph or two, as one season marches on to another. . . .
Wishing you a last few sunny wonderful days in August!
May all our storms soon pass.
Ciao! for now!
