Here's the original story, with an additional chapter at the end.
Be sure to read the UPDATE at the end of this post!
This tablescape includes so many of my favorite things and favorite colors.
Gifts from A Friend
My friend lives "down by the sea" and also collects vintage Fiesta, her name
is Saarin and she recently sent me these sweet carved wooden napkin rings
that look like they were made for this 1940 tablecloth. The tablecloth was a premium for Dutch Clenaser and the one I have still has the original mailing envelope with the enclosed ad for matching napkins. Sadly the original recipient of the tablecloth didn't send away for the napkins.
And here is how Saarin's table in her cottage down by the sea might have looked in the 1940s. The sweet fruit and veggie napkin rings accompany the vintage Fiesta in six colors. The individual covered casseroles are Kitchen Kraft also from Homer Laughlin glazed in Fiesta colors.
Saarin's table could easily look this way today, as she uses her vintage Fiesta on a regular basis. Thanks so much for the sweet napkin rings Saarin!
That's where the story ended last summer.
Before the internet, the chances of ever adding the napkins to my collection,
would have been maybe 1 in a million. But, lookee here!
Neat, nice, nifty napkins to match my tablecloth.
Thanks for joining me again this week here on The Little Round Table.
