Revealing My Sources

I just had to share this vintage tablecloth that arrived in the mail from my absolute most FAVORITE eBay seller, ipullgardenweeds.

Isn't it lovely? The entire tablecloth is hand embroidered with these beautiful floral wreaths - each different - and it's in pristine condition. I am in love with this spring tablecloth!

It's not the first vintage treasure I've purchased from Linda, who hails from Washington, and it won't be the last. My reasons are many: first, she writes the most wonderful, personal descriptions of all of her auctions - it feels like you've visited her shop and she has all the time in the world to chat about what it is, where she found it, how long she's had it, why she loves it so much, and what she thinks you should do with it once you buy it. I just can't describe how friendly her auctions are!

Then, once you win the auction, she ships it out quickly and when you receive it, it's always wrapped up nicely so you feel like it's your birthday. This time, she wrapped the tablecloth and the small beverage napkins (not pictured) that were included in tissue, and sealed it with the adorable vintage and new Easter stickers you see in the lower lefthand corner of the collage.

Since so many of you love vintage items as much/more than I do, I am only too happy to share one of my most favorite sources. (See how much I like you guys?)

What a beautiful tablecloth. Can't imagine all the time it took to do the embroidery. Looks like a great find.

What a beautiful cloth.
Hope you will stop by my blog again soon.
I am going to have a "card box" giveaway every month. This drawing will be the last day of April.
Every comment you leave throughout the month will enter your name in the drawing, so if you visit several times and leave several comments, you will have a better chance to win. This NEW blogger was so touched by all the comments I got on the Blog Party, that I decided to make this a monthly GIFT...
Also, if you link to my blog telling about the monthly giveaway, you will have your name entered 10 extra times...How is that for an incentive?
I was so blown away by all the responses that I wanted to email each person personally, but TIME... just has not permitted..but I did love reading all of them..I am continuing to introduce my family members and then there will be some fun blogs coming up from Disney World in May. I am so thankful for all my new friends.

Everyone, I heard from Linda/ipullgardenweeds and she told me that she's been ill and doesn't have anything for sale right at the moment on eBay. However, she's now feeling better and will be back THIS WEEK with some new listings! I can hardly wait!
