$2.00 Tuesday #12

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!!”

  1. Oh, what a wonderful treasure. Look at all that drawn-thread work! I hope someday people will come back to appreciate all the time and expertise it took to achieve this result. I’ve heard of Elizabeth’s B & B and I’ve looked at her website. I think she is very well known. I’m on my way over to see what she has been up to these long days.Talk to you later, Kim.

I enjoy reading your comments
