Show and Tell



Do you remember card table cloths? The small square table cloths used to cover your ugly card table. They won't actually cover a card table anymore because the tables are much bigger and nicer looking than they used to be. These three were my Mom's, at least the red and blue ones were. I remember them at our house but I don't remember the white one. It could have been my Grandma's or the best one that was saved for special occasions and never used. I love the little house on this one.
I think this daisy one is my favorite. I don't have blue or red in my house anymore so I haven't used them in a long time but you never know when you might need to dress up a card table. If you would like to join Friday Show and Tell or just visit the blogs involved this week, go to Kelli's House.

Jean,

I remember those card tablecloths! My mother belonged to a bridge club and she would host it a few times a year. She would pull out all her lovely tablecloths. Yours are lovely especially the little house one!

Blessings,
Gina

Amazing, yest I DO remember card tables. They were used at our home when I grew up for holidays and big family get-togethers. I LOVE the embroideried house.

Mine's shared too, I hope to see you drop by if you haven't already. I'd love to have you for company.

They may be too small but you could always lay them Diamond-like over a solid colored one that you have placed over it. Thanks for sharing!

I don't remember them. But, you know, I don't think my mother ever had a card table in our home! I grew up in the 50's.

I never saw these until the mid-eighties when my favorite aunt gave me a couple of them along with her card table and chairs (her health was failing and she was moving from her large home to a small apartment). She was a big entertainer and had lots of bridge parties. Mine look to be from the forties or fifties.
