Vintage Embroidery Tablecloth
And did you get a look at those gorgeous butterflies dropping in for a sip of nectar? They are interesting because the maker purposefully left the top of the butterflies open to form a pocket. At first I thought it was for a little weight to prevent it from blowing in the wind, but the tablecloth is only a 34'' square and so the butterflies lay on top of the table. Then I thought maybe the butterfly pockets were to hold playing cards...and then I thought wouldn't it be so cute if you had friends over to play cards and you had a little card with their names sticking out of the butterflies! Whatever the case it makes it all the more charming and I hope it brightens your day like it did mine.
