Hi everyone – I hope you all enjoyed your Labor Day holiday. As they say, it’s a bid to say farewell to summer, although the weather here in South Carolina says summer doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere (which makes me happy).
Today’s episode of $2.00 Tuesday item was shared with me by my friend Elizabeth Claytor of the beautiful Inn Upon Moon River Plantation Bed & Breakfast. Elizabeth, like myself loves to hunt for thrifty finds. You can read about her other fab finds here. Just in time for Fall – she lucked up on this hand-embroidered vintage table linen set at her local Salvation Army in Chester. They had a big grand opening last week and I was there. I, too, lucked up with a fab find which I’ll post about on Friday’s Fab Finds.
The set includes the rectangular tablecloth with 6 matching napkins. Vintage embroidered linen is always a must to have somewhere stashed in your collectibles. The hand sewn details are beautiful and I’ve always admired the details taken to create these lovely items.
See how the multi-color thread is used to highlight the flowers and leaves to add the right amount of fall essence to the cloth.
Can you imagine – all this handwork- sold for $2.00..Wow…The crispness of this freshly washed, starched and ironed vintage linen adds the perfect touch to any Fall table setting. Kudos to Elizabeth on her fab $2.00 Tuesday find. Remember, if you come across a fantastic item for $2.00, by all means do share. I’d love to hear about it. You can also post it on Instagram using hashtag #2dollartuesdayfinds or #urthriftygirlfinds. Here’s wishing you an enjoyable week ahead.. Take care and as always “VivaLaVintage!!”
