Vintage Tablecloth Love

No one here loves it except for me.
I found this tablecloth at Goodwill on Monday.
For $2.87... perfect vintage condition.  No stains, no tears.  And it fits my large table.  It makes me smile.  I know that someone spent a lot of time embroidering this cloth... someone who enjoyed doing things like this.  I will never use it; but I will love looking at it! Thank you to whoever dontated it to Goodwill.

Oh come on now--USE IT! :-) Invite the girlies over for lunch and don't worry about a stain. It's too darn pretty to sit in a drawer.
