Vintage Thingie Thursday

Aprons, vintage things, oh my! Sounds like something right down my alley! When I read about this fun meme on Karla's blog, I thought, "Now that would be fun!" So today I join the rest of those celebrating vintage things at http://anapronaday.blogspot.com . Won't you join us and share a picture of something old and meaningful to you? . . . And if you're like me and LOVE beautiful old things, it'll just be a matter of what you show and tell about first!

This beautiful lace curtain fluttering in the breeze at my bathroom window is actually a vintage tablecloth I picked up at an Estate Sale in Florida. I love the way it filters the sun shine in the afternoon. I just folded it over the rod (which gave it a "valance") and then gathered it up twice on the bottom and pinned it for a balloon curtain effect. A lovely vintage item I enjoy everyday ~ no linen closet living for this piece!

The simple can make such a statement. Nice and fresh!

What a beautiful way to show off a vintage tablecloth! Love it! I'd seen aprons as curtains, but not tablecloths. :D

Thanks for sharing.
