You guys have eagle eyes! You noticed my tablecloth in the last few posts. It is beautiful isn't it? Nope, I didn't do it. I must be honest and say that while I love embroidery, I don't think I could ever sit still long enough to finish a project like this.
Here is the really sad part. Well sad when you think about the family that donated this. I found it at Goodwill (along with a companion tablecloth in different colors) for THREE flipping dollars and 99 cents. $3.99
It makes my mind go whirly woo when I think about how long this took. And what amazing condition it is in. I had vague plans of making a dress for Eliza out of the other one, but cast that aside. She would outgrow that dress, but on our table it will never have to be shelved.
What's this little acorn bobble you ask?
It's for tea. You screw off the top, place your tea inside and then steep. When you aren't using it, it fits just perfectly inside the little cup. We have a lovely herbalist shop downtown called Butterfly Herbs. I've wanted to try loose teas for a while but was intimidated. Now I have the perfect excuse huh?
