The temperature was in the 70's here on Friday and it was such a beautiful day. My friend and I left early to spend the day in Williamsburg, VA, shopping at all the thrift shops and consignment stores.
I've been looking for a rose colored tablecloth to use with my china for a long time. They are pretty hard to find because I guess this isn't a popular color right now. My friend found one hanging on a rack at the Disabled Veteran's Thrift and it was the perfect color. It looked to be freshly laundered and was stain free. What a find for $3.
The color is lighter than it looks in this picture. The china was given to me by my neice. Her aunt was a nurse in WWII and brought the set back with her from France. I don't use it often because it is so old and very fragile.
At the same store I found this reversible black and white stripe and toile tablerunner. It is in new condition also and was only $3. I plan to use it with my black toile dishes. Both items laundered beautifully!
And last but not least, I got this beautiful china teacup for $1. It is made by Paragon and the pattern is called Tapestry Rose. Don't know what I'll do with it but just couldn't leave it. I always feel the need to rescue a pretty teacup!
