Burlap Christmas tablecloth

My mother-in-law is the queen of finding treasures at our local thirft shops.

She really enjoys going and is always on the lookout for the latest thing i seem to

be into.

Lucky me!

The other day when i visiting her...and picking up some lovely french

style lamps she found for me (a post about these will come later) i told her to be on

the lookout for burlap!

Burlap she questioned? Really? I said oh yes it is so in right now. Oh too bad she said...

i just threw out a pile of it!!

Oh well... I put my order in too late!

Yesterday i picked her up to go to a local Christmas art show and she had this

beautiful tablecloth waiting for me!

She went to the Sally Ann and there it was! A lovely burlap tablecloth with cute

elves painted on it!

It fits my table perfectly! Aren't the elves adorable?

Very pretty stars painted in the centre of it.

I believe one of the reasons she likes to do this for me is not only due to her enjoyment

of shopping in these stores but because i really appreciate it and i always use or display

whatever she finds. Good job Nana you are lots of fun!!


  1. Hi Pamela,
    Your lucked in two ways - first to have such a sweet MIL and second that she finds these lovely things for you!
    Enjoy your week,

  2. Pamela, that is the cutest tablecloth and burlap to boot! What a find and how sweet of her to give you that.

  3. That is so cute. I love the little Christmas elves. And what a great MIL you have to find stuff like that for you.

  4. burlap is in, eh? Who knew! Cute tablecloth.

  5. It's so pretty! Great job, Nana!

  6. Dear Pamela, So wonderful to have your mom in law treating you to such lovely things. Must be because you are such a good wife to her son! Love your new header, it's so romantic and so sweet that you still have those shoes. Love, Penny

  7. How darling! I love your new header too. I bet that tablecloth was from the late 40's/early 50's, don't you think? Whenever-it is just darling. Love it! How nice to have a mother-in-law that "gets" it! Hugs-Diana

  8. What a treasure! Your mother-in-law is a 'keeper' I think! I love your new banner with your Christmas shoes! Angie xo

  9. That is so cool Pamela! I absolutely love burlap. I always look for it in the thrift stores wanting to make stuff with it, but then I'm torn with the thought of cutting it up. I don't trust my creativity I guess. That looks so cute on your table. Love your new banner. (I get freaked out trying a new banner....not sure how to do it)

  10. Your mother in law has a gift. A amazing gift. My mom is the same way. She finds things nobody else notices.
