Cath Kidston oil cloth


I finally found a use for the Cath Kidston oil cloth that I bought while visiting our daughter in England a year ago. Do you remember me telling you about entering the Cath Kidston store in Bath and literally shaking I was so excited?! Well you can read all about that memorable moment HERE. Anyway, that precious piece of oil cloth has finally found a home... draped over the darling table & chairs set that Randy & I found last weekend at a yard sale for $15.00! I know!


And just when I thought I couldn't love it any better, I find this set of dishes on clearance at Target last night for $10.00! And yes, the set came with four goblets, real metal flatware and red gingham cloth napkins! (that happen to match the apron that Mrs. McGillicutty is wearing) And the raspberry red plates match the oil cloth roses perfectly. (Double click and see for yourself) Again I was shaking, I was so happy! Randy & I could hardly wait to set the table this morning and anticipate all the meals we will share with our granddaughters in the very near future.


You see, that's the coolest part about the table & chairs set, they are so solid that we can actually sit with her and share a meal while sipping juice from the crystal clear goblets. Ok, so they're plastic, but Emolyn will think they're real. And that's all that matters.

I'm linking up with the following parties-
~ TABLESCAPE THURSDAY
~ STRUT YOUR STUFF THURSDAY
~ FRUGAL FRIDAY
~ FRUGALICIOUS FRIDAY
~ SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY
~ TODAY'S THRIFTY TREASURE

I love that oil cloth! Me, I wouldn't be able to part with it for the kiddie table.. I would fold it over as a runner for the big people table! Very sweet :) Thanks for sharing!

So charming! I love the way you describe how excited you get when you find something you love for your table. I know you'll enjoy spending time at this table with your precious granddaughters. When I saw the title of your post, I thought of how my grandmother always kept an oil cloth on her kitchen table -- decorative and so practical!
