Sharing a common thread with those who love the art of hand embroidery

In my vintage shop............I have a vintage table

I love to set it ,at different times, with 
a different tablecloth

a mix of vintage plates, serving pieces, 

and vintage glassware and teacups

Each vintage piece just seems to always fit in

 The old table comes to life in it's own vintage way
Lovely vintage serving bowls also add charm
Sometimes, I hand embroider coasters and napkins, 
and sometimes, I use a set of vintage napkins

An inviting table for family and guests
If I don't have enough place mats, I often use vintage 
embroidered dresser runners, folded to serve as such

Sometimes, I set complete sets of dishware 
for  a lovely farmhouse look

 Take time enough for your meals, and eat them in company whenever you can. 
There is no need for hurry in life—least of all when we are eating. 
Edward Everett Hale, "How to Get the Best of It," c.1892
