We went driving up north this weekend and stopped here.
It was the neatest little antique store with the friendliest owner couple.
We had fun looking around, and lookie what I found...
It's an old crocheted tablecloth that I could NOT pass up.
I had to have it even though I knew it was probably too short for my table.
And it is, but who cares? Hell, I'll buy a new table!
A lady in Colbert, Oklahoma made this.
She had several others in the store and lots of doilies too.
It's so beautiful, and there's not a thing wrong with it.
There are 192 of the larger motifs!
I didn't even try to count the little joining ones.
Can you imagine the hours, days, weeks, months?
I paid $50.
And when we got home, my hubby gifted me with this...
I've been reading and fiddling with it furiously trying to learn all I can.
I'm going to take some beautiful pictures!
You know the best part? Come closer...
He told me he "loved me to death."
If I'm not the luckiest girl alive, I don't know who is!
