Wishing I felt a little more like this...
I've spent every minute lately with my new sidekick, the head cold. Despite my best efforts to sprint ahead and shake it, it always seems to catch up with me later in the day. Admittedly, I don't do sick well, spending most of it in denial about actually being sick, even as I'm hitting the couch with blankie, pillow and cup of tea in hand. ("I'm not thick. Whereth my kleenexth?")
Fortunately, just when I really needed some perking up, the mailman delivered a box of good cheer from a certain Sweet Bee at Sweet Bee Cottage. Thoughtful Janelle (aka Sweet Bee) and I go way back -- we 'met' on ebay years ago and then we started blogging around the same so she knows all about my vintage tablecloth addiction.
And she sent me a fix. Thank you for these, Janelle! My cold is much better now but my addiction just got a little worse.
I confess I had one more vintage Christmas (and Halloween) lucky streak at an estate sale recently -- a sale I pretty much forced myself out of my sickbed to attend because I am dedicated. Or delirious. So glad I went and I'll share more later this week. This Beistle honeycomb Santa was one of treasures I found.
Meanwhile, it's back to the Doily Factory for my regularly scheduled Christmas sewing.
P.S. Regarding vintage tablecloth addictions: Have you been to The Little Round Table? Candy has created an amazing Index ... for the 120-ish vintage tablecloths in her collection. This lady is or-gan-ized!
Here's a link to her Vintage Tablecloth Index (once you get there, scroll down to see the photos).
I suddenly feel the need to alphabetize something.
