Show and Tell...

This is my first time participating in Show and Tell Sunday. Cerri is hosting and the topic is vintage linens. How could I resist getting out some of my spring favorites to photograph and share. I absolutely love the colors and patterns on vintage table cloths. I find them at estate sales all the time and can't seem to stop indulging in them. That way I can rotate every few weeks which one I put on our front table.

These two (above and below) are my most recent purchases.
This one debuted at the infamous virtual tea party I hosted last year.

I also adore vintage aprons. I find them for a steal and my collection keeps growing.
My favorite apron of all.

This vintage sewing box I just got today. I couldn't resist the fabulous colors and pattern.
Speaking of vintage linens, I recently bought this book at Home Goods and it is absolutely fabulous. I figured it would be since Cath Kidston's designs are stunning. Gorgeous pictures and projects.

Wewh, that was fun. Can't wait to see everyone else's treasures.
Hope you're having a good weekend!

You have the BEST collection! I love all those colors. And couldn't you just spend hours looking at Cath Kidston catalog photos? So yummilicious! I get to sift through all the linens and treasures I got from the Pec Thing flea market and that's almost as much fun as buying them! =) Have a wonderful Sunday. Blessings... Polly
