Tailoring your cloth to match your china...

I find it that it is always best to, wherever possible, match your china to your tablecloth!  I had been watching this tablecloth on Ebay but decided, in the end, that I had FAR TOO MANY tablecloths and did not need another.  To console myself I went out to the charity shops - there, glimmering at the back of one shop, was the very same tablecloth I had spied on Ebay!  £1.99 and no postage to pay!  Lo, it was taken home, washed, dried, ironed and china matched up.  The cups and saucers (and plates..) are from the 1950's, I think that the tablecloth might be a little later.

  4. Hello to you all - many thanks, yes indeed fickle finger of fate! Well spotted with the Pagan design - I don't know why those Wade designs aren't more popular. Midwinter always seem to grab the 50's glory!
