Serendipity

I'm joining Vintage Thingies Thursday again this week over at Coloradolady
If you were here last week for my post about my Tablecloth Keeper, then you can
share the joy of a new find.  It was serendipity for sure.  The matching Napkin Keeper
came from a completely different source in a different part of the country.

You can read the first chapter of this marriage of two different vintage thingies at
last week's post: Tablecloth Keeper







Smell the roses from my garden ...... Fall roses in California are some of the best!

Thanks so much for dropping by again this week!

  1. Candy...I just love these and since I doubt I'll ever find any, I am going to have to make myself a set :)

    Blessings!

  3. A very pretty post for today. The little flower arrangement is simply gorgeous. I have some linens with that same design on them. Naturally, I love yours too.

  4. The napkin keeper was really a lucky find. I have never noticed any tablecloth or napkin keepers.

  14. Thanks everyone for your lovely comments on these keepers!

    I think we've all probably passed them up many times when out and about. Seems to me they would get lost in a stack of napkins, doilies, runners etc, unless they were specifically displayed by a shop owner who is familiar with them.
