Great finds ~ Part 2

When I found this gorgeous tablecloth I was originally going to sell it in my eBay store. But then I got to looking at it, and it's too beautiful to give up.

It is surrounded by the most beautiful hand crocheted edges! The work is amazing and the snow white center is the most luxurious fine linen. It was a dirty and smelly when I got it, but it didn't have any holes...Until I washed it. Now there's a tiny little hole near the center, but who cares, this piece is still stunning.

So much work!

I realized I wanted to keep this when I put it on this little table. I wish I could crochet like that!
Have a wonderful day!

Hi, I'm Holly! I'd keep that table cloth, too! Very nice! I was given a 12 pound box of linens for Christmas. I posted about it on my blog if you want to see. :>

The tablecloth is so beautiful. I would have kept it, too! I can't imagine how long it must have take to make that beautiful creation with all that crochet lace!

That is the most amazingly romantic linen ... it was meant for that table and I'm so glad you chose to keep it. It's at home now!
