Here in Western NY we are in the frosty, snowy depths of winter. Yesterday morning it was 7 F, and we are covered in a thick blanket of snow. Fine flakes are swirling to the ground as I type. Perfect weather for cleaning and organizing the basement, working on some furniture projects, knitting, reading and watching old episodes of Gardener's World.
Browsing the thrift and antique shops is also a favorite pastime this time of year. This past week I found a demilune table, something I have been searching for for some time. It seems that good things do come to those who wait. It is not the finest of antiques, but I think some sanding and a couple coats of paint will do wonders...I will let you know.
Another thrift store find is this unused, vintage Waverly fabric I found, called Blackberry Thief. I have been hanging on to it for a bit, and then decided to use it for a tablecloth...
It is really barely enough to cover the table, so rather than hem the edges, I just sewed on some bias binding tape. The bold floral seems perfect for this gloomy time of year.
Thank you for stopping by!
