Oh so pretty!

Pin It Now!

Another vintage linen tablecloth has found it's way to my home!

This one is cross stitched in soft romantic colors!

My roses are blooming like crazy now...




Thank you all so much for your kind comments yesterday.  I didn't mean to give the impression that I was really hurt over this. I'm fine now, I was upset for about a day but got over it quickly. I cannot believe how many of the scammers are out there. Another one just found me on Facebook. I was very suspicious of him and now I've heard from other women that he's "friended" on Facebook that he's a fake!  The only bad thing about this is now I'm suspicious of every guy! haha!

That is so pretty! I love to cross stitch, it's one of my favorite pastimes.

Cindy, since you have such a popular blog do you think you could put a post up about Marija
from http://holdingcourtblog.blogspot.com/
She was a popular blogger who was killed in a car accident over the weekend, her husband has put such a beautiful post up that I think everyone should read:( Just makes you realize how quickly a life can be gone.

Sandy~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Oh Ya, that tablecloth is sure is a beauty Cindy. Perfect for you with the little bit of blue that it does have. I have a few vintage tablecloths myself changing them periodically for a different look.

I don't blame you for being extra cautious... lot of Nuts out there when it comes to men.

Enjoy your Evening*

Allison said...

Yes, way too many scammers out there!

Very pretty. Perfect for your romantic home.

I love those beautiful linens. I'll have to check out that etsy shop. Your table looks so beautiful. My mom used to needlepoint and I have many of the tablecloths that were lovingly made by her hands. I treasure them and use them often.

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

Very beautiful Cindy. Thanks for sharing the info about the scam too. My friend's daughter just recently got taken for $1000 in an internet rent scam. It's traced to Nigeria too, but not much she can do about it. I'm glad you didn't pay anything.
Blessings,
Marcia

Susan said...

can said...

I've already found this page. I like it very much. Thanks.

lisa said...

Looks like the linen was made to match the lovely pitcher. Just beautiful. On that other matter, who WOULDN'T have fallen for that beautiful face, much less carefully chosen scam language. Don't beat yourself up...it has happened to us all.

Love ya!

What a beautiful tablecloth. Sure to be a treasure forever. Love the pattern and the colors. Very nice.

Mom Walds Place said...

Thank you for sharing the lovely photos. Everything about them is lovely. The stitching on some of these vintage pieces is amazing.

DesigningLadyJane said...

Gorgeous! That tablecloth couldn't be more beautiful. It matches that lovely pitcher so well. I've been keeping an occasional eye out for white embroidered linens, I'm definitely going to be more aggressive seeking them out seeing this.

Dolly said...

Oh Cindy that cloth is stunning!

I think the scammer guy was a learning lesson! There are scammers out there so don't let your guard down but then there are REAL men out there too!
Good luck Cindy!

Hugz, Dolly
