Found in an antique store....

I hope you have had a happy Thursday.  It is one day closer to Friday and perhaps a different routine than we have during the week. 

As I mentioned in the last post, I enjoy "exploring" antique stores.  I'm really not looking for anything major at this point.  I do, on occasion, find something that has been on my "mental list.":-)  I definitely have a preference for pink, and after I came home with the dishes that were featured in the last post, I wanted to find a pink tablecloth, if possible. 

Napkins included!

This tablecloth with four matching napkins caught my eye.  Although it isn't as large as I would have liked, it will serve very nicely on this particular table, which is the table I had for my first apartment more than a few years ago!  The table is often used for appetizers or beverages when we entertain.  You have seen it before with different cloths as I try to change them to suit the season.

I was thrilled when I also found the other two napkins!  I attempted to take a picture that would show them opened, but the light just wasn't right for the picture to show up well enough.  I'll keep them in mind and work on another site for a picture and a different view.  There is a lot of outside light in our house, which we enjoy.

The second planting of corn has done well, and some should be ready in about a week.  I'll catch you up on growing things around here in the next post.

Thank you so much for reading!  I appreciate  your comments.


  1. Good find on the tablecloth and napkins Nellie. They are lovely!

  2. It is always so nice to find things like that. I need to do some antique shopping soon. I love doing that and I haven't ventured out. I do like seeing what you have found.
    I think we will plow our corn under this weekend. Second year in a row it has not grown. I think we will quit on the corn. We just haven't had the heat it needs. I can't wait to see yours.

  3. Oh, I really like that set, and the napkins with that lovely pattern are just great! I didn't realize that table was the same one I remember from your first apartment. I remember many tasty meals on that table, and the way you are using it these days is wonderful. Great to know that second planting of corn is doing well, too, and I'll look forward to hearing all about the garden!

  4. Love you new pink tablecloth and your matching napkins....AND the other two napkins, too. Hope you have a good upcoming weekend-xo Diana

  7. I love reading your blog!! Thanks for keeping it up. It's a nice way to end the day and have good thoughts before bedtime. :-)

  8. Lovely dishes, tablecloth and serviettes. Pink is my favourite too.
    Thank you so much for your comments and for your prayerful support recently. I appreciate it very much.
    Hope you are over the very worst of the heat, 'though I guess summer is not over yet!
    Keep cool and have a lovely week-end.

  9. One can never have enough table linens. Just beautiful.
