The Vintage Tablecloth Lovers Club

I LOVE vintage tablecloths! In fact they are pretty much an obsession for me! When I joined The Vintage Tablecloth Lovers Club I had 44 tablecloths in my collection. None I spent more then a dollar on at a garage sale.

Today, well I haven’t counted but, I estimate I have upwards of 500 tablecloths. I’ve spread my collecting wings and now hunt antique stores, ebay and online shops. But a garage sale find is still my biggest thrill!

My very favorite cloths are Wilendurs. Followed by Broderie and anything pink! Florals are up there with cloths that make me go Ahhhhh….and if they are roses, well you know that thrills me!!

If you haven’t stopped over at The Vintage Tablecloth Lovers Club in a while, you might not know about our Tablecloth Database. The TLC now has the only searchable tablecloth identification database! It’s really wonderful. A quick and easy way to put a manufacturer and pattern name to your tablecloth. This database was created and is maintained by TLC members. So you know this is an amazing collection all in one place!

Please stop by. We’d love to have you as a member! Not only will you enjoy the database, you’ll meet a lot of nice people who share a passion for vintage linens.

And a reminder….If you haven’t signed up for The Pink Rose Cottage giveaway, please do so now. Entries accepted through Friday, October 2 until midnight. Good luck!

Time flies....

What happened to August? Did I sleep through it? And now we’re starting the second week of September!?! When I was a kid time just seemed to drag…Christmas was so far way….School days were soooo long……My mom use to say, just wait til you’re older, it just flies by! Is that ever true!

It’s already time for our annual neighborhood garage sale. Even though it’s later in the month this year (for 30 years it’s been the first Saturday after Labor Day), I’m not quite prepared. Partly because I wasn’t sure I was going to participate and partly because time just got away from me. But my mom is bringing things over to sell, so I decided to purge too. Although I’d much rather shop!

I’ll be back to routine sometime next week. I missed reading every ones blogs daily, but did peek in when I could. Hopefully after this week life will get back on schedule!

See you soon! Take care my friends!
