I would like to send out a hugh WELCOME to a brand new blogging friend and her new site....
Her name is DONNA at DONNA'S IN THE ATTIC (what a cute blog name, Donna!).
Please go over and introduce yourself and help her to feel at home in this wonderful world of blogging.....

DONNA, we are so glad to have you for a new friend.


This is DAY 2 of the ROOSTER PARADE over at BEVERLY'S
and she has a brand new batch of handsome fellas marching, strutting and.....well.....doing their THING!
Be sure to stop by and say HELLO to all of them!
THESE beautiful French Country tablecloths shown below are.....OILCLOTH
Meaning they can just be wiped off with a wet cloth.

I was totally excited when I found this site and I don't care if it cost
ONE MILLION DOLLARS, I aim to have one of these colorful, beautiful, easy to care for cloths for MY dining table......well, maybe not a MILLION, but ........... :o)

I really love using tablecloths and they aren't hard to wash and iron...just a little time consuming....and my table is LARGE, so if I have to IRON the cloth....I don't like it very much.

Since PLASTIC cloths aren't really my cup of tea....
I am more than sure I would just love one of these!
These pretty ones are COTTON, coated with Scotch Guard.


This is how their ad reads.......

"These oilcloths from PROVENCE are made in cotton with a special treatment on them called scotchguard which makes them waterproof and stain resistant.
They look great, as regular cotton, much better than those plastic tablecloths! Round or rectangle oilcloth available. Round tablecloths looks great on square table too. "
To order or just take a peek at what they offer, go HERE.
They have other FRENCH items, too that are fun fun fun to look at....

My son*in*law is to have knee surgery this morning and I ask for your kind prayers for him.

I LOVE the tablecloths!! I'm going to check them out now, as well as Donna and Beverly!

Have a fabulous day!

Those cloths are exquisite. They often have them ( treated cotton from France) at Homegoods. E-mail me the size you need and I will keep my eyes peeled for them. They are more in the $20-$30 range.

Your son in law is in my thoughts; hope all goes well.

Hi BJ, thanks for the reminder my sweet, when I looked yesterday there was not a rooster in sight, today there are so many mighty fine fellas I am almost overcome.
You and Beverley deserve a medal for your hard work organising this!
Sending good wishes and prayers for your son-in-law, hope his operation goes well.
Big Hugs,
Lucy x

Praying for your son in law, BJ!

Do you remember when oil cloth could be bought from a bolt or roll? I remember having tablecloths made from oil cloth. It was nice, being able to buy the exact amount of "cloth" for the table.

The tablecloths you found are beautiful!

Hi BJ...this is "Southerndecor" from RMS & I started a blog about 2 weeks ago. I love this much better than RMS, although I still check in from time to time! I kept seeing your name pop up in other's blogs, but couldn't find your blog. Glad I did, I love the tablecloths! What a great find! I don't like the plastic cloths either, but with three males, I can't use fabric ones either on a daily basis... I would be washing ALOT! LOL!

My prayers are with your son-in-law! Hope all went well with his surgery today!

Stop in for a visit, if you get a chance! ~Rhonda :)

Celene said...

Hi BJ! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those tablecloths! Gorgeous. I really like your blog. You seem delightful. I noticed we have similar tastes in movies. I love anything Jimmy Stewart, Pretty Woman and Somewhere in Time. My very favorite movie of all time is Meet Me in St. Louis with Judy Garland. I only have one grandson so far , 13 months, and he's my favorite thing! I'm adding you to my blog roll. Would you please add me to yours? I'll be back often. Thanks and God Bless, Celene
