My Grandma Painted this tablecloth with ARTEX paints . She had it for several years and then my Mom had it ..I think I have had it for about 15 years.
My 3 girls will have to fight over it !LOL
Hop on over to

Yes, there will probably be a fight with one tablecloth and two daughters! LOL! Your grandmother did a great job painting it! I think I have a painted tablecloth in my collection, but none one passed down from a family member. That makes yours so much more special! Many thanks for once again joining in on Vintage Love Saturday!

Ahh yes, "liquid embroidery" ... my friend's mom gave me a pillowcase for Christmas once with an elephant on it. I've had it since elementary school. Your tablecloth is beautiful!!

OOHH, that is too pretty. I had a set of Artex back in the 60's. Your heirloom is wonderful, but I say the girls get to spend alternate Christmases with the cloth. The first year they pull a name out of a hat then it goes from fighting!!!
