Sneaking in some blogging time...while the little one sleeps. It's hard when they start only taking one nap a day and even harder when they stop napping altogether! So I'll just be grateful that he still takes one a day! I love vintage tablecloths and I found a really beautiful one a few weeks ago and have finally taken some photos to show you. Isn't it gorgeous? I love the colors and how soft and faded it is. Well, really I'm using the backside because it's even more soft and faded looking. This is a close up of the right side. And this is part of the pretty border. Jadite green, soft blue, faded rosy reds and pinks, buttery yellows... these colors just make me happy! Hope you find some happiness in your day!

The tablecloths are so pretty with their muted faded colors. I remember when I little one stopped taking naps, it was tough for a while, but it eventually gets better. :)

Love those vintage table cloths, I make sure I use them and not just keep them in a cupboard. Thanks for coming and seeing me. Florence
