Tablecloths in Red--Making Double Time
It's time for all things RED. Check out the Rednesday postings over at My Secret Garden with Sue. And a post for Vintage Thingies Thursday at Coloradolady with Suzanne. Check them out. Today my RED is table coverings. First is a set of 4 placemats. From 1950 or the 60s surely? Then here is the appliqued/embroidered corner of a small breakfast cloth. It is only on one corner of the buttonholed stitched square. I expect this one dates to late 1940s or earlier 1950s Now I have three tablecloths. The first is a rectangular cloth with all manner of kitchen items from scales to potbelly stove. It appears to be an old country store setting. This one is loaded with flowers. No pastels here! And the square has borders of red covered in yellow and rose/pink rose sprays.
