Show and Tell Friday and I'm 50!!!

Pin It Now!

It's Show and Tell Friday and it's my birthday (on Friday)! The big 50!

 This week has been crazy so I'm sharing something I've shown on my blog before...one of my favorite antique tablecloths that my mom has passed down to me.  

Although I usually use my vintage tablecloths, this one is so beautiful I'm afraid to use it! Maybe some day when I'm serving just vanilla cake and vanilla ice cream, I will get brave enough!  This photo does not do it justice...it's so sheer and delicate looking! It reminds me of a wedding dress!  Such a beautiful piece of art!
If you are joining in on Show and Tell Friday, please remember that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden. Please read the Show and Tell Guidelines for step-by-step instructions on how to participate. If you would like to join in, please enter your name and leave your exact Show and Tell blog post link, not just your blog link and as a common courtesy link back to my blog. If your link has been removed, please re-read over the guidelines before re-posting, or e-mail me with any questions.
Thank you!

Happy, happy Cake and Friends Day, Cindy!
Don't wait for "someday" to use your beautiful tablecloth (or anything else you've been saving for that elusive day)..."someday" is not a day of the week...and it might elude you...so go ahead, enjoy your treasure...there's always Oxi-Clean! :)

This is so beautiful and so romantic..I wonder if it is hand made..I wouldn't use it on a dining table...maybe a table that was never used...
Happy Happy Birthday!!! My daughter informed me, this week, that she and I are both in our middle years...she seemed to think that wasn't fair that we were both in the same category...This is a special Birthday, Cindy, let us know how you celebrate.

That table cloth is gorgeous! Luscious! Use it, by all means! The more beautiful something is, the more it must be used. Who needs to leave behind a perfect tablecloth in the box, for some distant relative to find, and wonder why it was never used? Enjoy now! :-)
