Goodies from the trip

Here are my latest additions to my vintage tablecloth stash. My best buy was the one with the tulips for $1.60 at a thrift store. It is printed on a herringbone weave. Very lovely and somewhat shabby chic... but a wonderful cloth. The great deal offset the not-so-inexpensive holiday tablecloths. I love the intensity of color in the morning glory print on faille. Extremely vibrant... holiday yet not hit-yourself-over-the-head holiday. The more traditional cloth with the red center and greeny-gold accents is a Tamis Keefe. She was an amazing textile artist. She only had a short career but was very prolific. I also have several of her hanky designs.
