"Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems." ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
It was another warm day here in New England... a day for using tablecloths that celebrate the arrival of spring! Many of us in the colder climates get giddy with excitement at days like this... that delightful period between the harsh blast of winter and the stick-to-the-sheets humidity of summer. For me, spring is pure bliss.
A while back I shared my mini-collection of vintage wastebaskets. I also have a small collection of tablecloths (vintage is a plus, but any pretty floral tablecloth is sure to catch my eye). From time to time, I'll share photos of some of my favorites, like this one with garlands of pink roses and daisies on a robin's egg blue background.
Wishing you all a blissful spring day...

Love this Donna! Have quite a collection of 50's tablecloths also that I enjoy pulling out from time to time to use. Have made many pillows from old ones that aren't in such great shape, bet you have done the same yourself. Enjoy reading your blog daily although don't always comment!
