pretty roses and a winner

Happy Monday!
This weekend went by so fast. Hope you had a wonderful one.
Oh, how I do love roses! I bought this beautiful red rose vintage tablecloth online, and was so excited to get it in the mail last week. It has never been used, even though there are some age stains from being stored for so long. 
It is from the 50's and just gorgeous! This will be part of my Christmas collection of vintagey tea towels coming in November. :)
I would love a fabric line with these roses! How beautiful would a quilt be with these pretties! So dreamy!
A sweet vintage rose cross-stitch dresser doily. This is something I would love to start making. I really want to expand on my crocheted edgings and cross-stitch patterns. So, I am on the hunt for a vintage pattern book. Another project on the list! 
A banner has been made, along with price tags for the boutique! I just got a pretty vintage sheet in the mail today, and I can't wait to show you what I am using it for! 
I just finished this lovely sign for my booth. I used one of my favorite doilies, with a pretty mint green scalloped edging, and some vintage rose fabric. The background is a vintage cloth napkin. I wish I found more than one. How pretty would a whole set of these be at your dinner table! I love all these colors together, and I'm happy with how it turned out.  
 I am still figuring out where to hang it, but it will go somewhere. Everything is coming together for the boutique, and I have a little less than two more weeks to finish up. 
Congratulations Rachel from A Little Bit Vintage and Wildflower Photography Studio on winning my birthday giveaway!! Yay! I will be sending you an email! Thank you again for all your sweet birthday wishes!
Wishing you all a beautiful and lovely fall week!

  2. That tablecloth is in great shape...the colors are so vivid. When I saw it, I remembered that I have one just like it, or maybe with those exact colors...somewhere and have forgotten it until now..hmmm, now it will make me crazy until I find it!

    Congratulations to Rachel..Enjoy! xo
