Bringing Green into the Dining Room {A Thrift Store Find}


I wanted to share with you this vintage green linen
 tablecloth I found recently at a thrift shop...


I almost walked right by, but the beautiful trim caught my eye. It had been awhile since I had gone thrift shopping. I was reminded why it is so much fun! Many pieces are vintage and one-of-a-kind. Sure, you have to hunt and dig a bit. You also have to be able to picture the item outside of the store. But, if you can, you just may end up with a unique item for your home at a steal of a price!


I brought the chicken waterer with succulents in from our
 porch for an added touch of greenery and farmhouse style.



Have you scored any good finds recently? Or, are you on the hunt for something these days? Inspire me (and distract me from the return of the rain)!

  2. Your green table cloth looks just like spring. It looks soft and all broken in. That's a great find. :) Jo

  4. I like it. Perfect for spring. I think the lace is really pretty. I purchased a cream colored tablecloth with red stripes down the center ( think grain sack style) for $.99 at a local thrift shop. No stains, no holes. I love it on my table or sometimes just folded on my living room ottoman, etc. it's one of my favorite things.

  9. Julie,
    Amazing find, dear friend!!!
    I purchased one similar to this while living in Baumholder, W. Germany in the early 1970's.
    After my brothers divorce, I took him my Wedding China and this tablecloth for his home.
    Thank you for sharing this lovely tablecloth, dear one.
    When I saw this on your blog. . .my heart skipped a beat.
    A precious memory rekindled!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  12. What a great find! It looks lovely on your table - - I would have stopped for that trim too! LOL. I have not been having very good luck lately but I did find a few items that I like, one of which is a crocheted coverlet that is gorgeous!

  13. It is gorgeous! The trim certainly would have caught my eye as well. It's the perfect color for Spring! I recently scored a set of two bowls by Hall. They have a pretty spring pattern, called Crocus. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
