Vintage Tablecloths

black and white photograph of washing line
I somehow lucked out at a preview of a estate sale and found a pile of beautiful hand embroidered linen tablecloths. They were made by a German War Bride back in the 60's and I suppose if I was a dealer I would have flipped out, but as a lover of textiles and embroidery I shall treasure these.

So beautiful, great find!

I'm just so in awe of all the talents our moms n grandmas, etc had. And that they could somehow find the time (especially without decent light sources at night!!!!) to make all these lovely things. On top of raising kids n running a homestead without many/any of our modern conveniences.

Whoosh. happy they found a new home with someone who will appreciate and care for them!
