I was given something really special this week by a good friend, SueBee. You can hop over to her blog, click here, and see what she's up to these days.
We went on an excursion to Winter Garden this week and before we left, SueBee gave me a little peice of my birth country.
SueBee is an avid thrifter, junker and now, businesswoman. She and her business partner Kathy have opened a booth at a local shop here in Orlando. Their stuff is awesome! Click here to get a peek from a previous post of mine.
Anyway, Suebee knows her vintage linens. She has beautiful tablecloths, towels, pillowcases, placemats, napkins, oh, I could go on and on.
Where to put this lovely vintage CANADIAN tablecloth? It took me a couple of days, but found that it really popped in our second bathroom. This is a neglected room, mainly because it's difficult to find fabrics and "things" to go with the pink (I prefer the term, coral) tile. I have found that by keeping it mainly white and adding some blue helps this room a lot. And this new cloth from Canada just works, for me, on top of the old pillow cases I use for curtains in this room.
Next I will have to find something to fill up the space above the window so it isn't so barren looking.
This bathroom has turned into a bit of a "memory room" I realized as I placed this latest treasure in it.
For instance, beside the curtains hang these lobster trap markers from our trip to Maine (near Canada!) in 2001.
On the wall I have a very 1960s fish wall hanging that graced my parent's bathroom for years. It seems at home here.
