Mexican Oilcloth Tablecloths

I should be curled up reading a good book, but I'm blogging instead. Here are some objects of my desire (not Cary Grant or Bryan Ferry this time - LOL) that I've been dreaming of for some time. I'm talking about repro vintage Mexican oilcloth tablecloths. Here are some striking examples available.

One day I'll scrape up the money and take the plunge. If you're interested in these, visit

I hope to hit some garage sales with my folks in their town tomorrow. I'll keep you posted.
Stay happy!


  1. They are soooooo gorgeous. I went through a phase of collecting antique 50's embroidered tablecloths and tea towels on ebay. Wild retro designs. Cheers CM

  2. Those patterns are wonderful!

  3. I miss the clematis a bit, but I love the new banner!

  4. I see those kinds of things on ebay sometimes and they are sooooo wonderful. I really really love the colors. And the patterns.
