French Ivory & White

The time or the light never seems to be right for putting together a post lately, but I just couldn't wait any longer to show you this wonderful tablecloth that I found from Jeanne d'Arc Living! It's a combination of cut work embroidery and ecru netting.

I'm a little obsessed with French Country Style lately, and always with the look of white and vintage linens. This piece is on the dressy side and could even be used as a curtain or a cover or throw on a bed or other furniture. Since it's brand new, I won't have to be as cautious as I might with an antique textile. It was love at first sight!

I am showing it off here with a mix of my old Wedgwood Queensware teacups and a few other recent finds.

I don't collect much milk glass, but how can you resist a piece like this? A big square cake stand with gorgeous details.

I had no yummy goodies at hand, so a sweet vintage plate (sorry, I don't know the pattern) and a teapot are perched on top for the moment.

The Aubusson pillow on the sofa is a recent find too and picks up the theme of ivory and white.

I had to sneak in a little brown transferware as well of course! In this case, a few dessert plates are held in lieu of sweets in another lovely little milk glass fruit or cake stand. (See the scalloped edge?)

Here are a few closer details.

Another fleamarket needlepoint pillow makes for a cozy seat for tea as well.

Isn't she sweet?

A little tatted vintage lace makes a nice companion.

I really love the way a change of accessories and linens can change the whole tone of a room.

Now all we need is a stop at the French pastry shop!

Ohh la la!

So glad you stopped by for a visit.

 Seems like we wait and wait for spring to come and then suddenly there is so much to do!

I hope you are having a great week!

Happy White Wednesday!



  1. That is the prettiest tablecloth I have seen in awhile. I have so much trouble with lighting too at my home. Milk glass brings back alot of memories.

  2. Love that sweet little pillow -- but oh, that tablecloth! Sigh!

  3. So nice to see your pretty room with all the beautiful and delicate details, Jacqueline! The tablecloth is so lovely and goes so well with your beautiful dishes. The needlepoint pillows are perfect with your lovely rug. It is all so sweet and cozy. xo Karen

  5. Stunning tablecloth. Beautiful dishes all in white and post; in very way.

  6. I do love your tablecloth! Looks lovely in your room on the table with all of the other pretty items...I'd love to pick up a cake stands like that for dessert buffets around the holidays! It's really so pretty!

  7. Beautiful tablecloth, but I am in love with that teapot.

  8. It is absolutely gorgeous I can imagine how much more beautiful it must be in person. JDL has such nice quality items. I love everything that I have purchased from them. Your entire room seems transformed by its loveliness. I admire all the white as if your furniture is covered in cream frosting. Happy Spring.

  9. Everything looks so pretty.

    I had to laugh about the French pastry comment. It is past midnight and every blog I am reading is mentioning food. I want to head to a bakery right now.

  10. The tablecloth is so beautiful. I love the white on white with the hint of ecru. The milk glass pedestal plate is a beauty. Have a lovely day Jacqueline.

  11. The table cloth is divine Jacqueline! A real show-stopper in my opinion~
    And all your lovely white accessories! (who needs sweets?!? - - well...: ) Gorgeous cake stands & the pattern on the tea cup set is amazing. Thank you for sharing. You always inspire me friend.
    I have some milk glass that needs to see the light! Have a blessed day! Karen O

  14. I can't imagine anything prettier than brown transferware and milk glass! So lovely. And that Jeanne d'Arc cotton/lace piece is so pretty. JDL quality is amazing and you have to love their attention to detail.
    Thanks for the tips on the hutch. I think you are right. I removed some of the plates and it does look better.
