Tablecloths and roses

My vintage tablecloths and roses
from my rose bushes...

...were calling me to take them outside for a bit
yesterday and hang them on the line...

...just so I could snap a few photos
and share them with you.

Vintage roses and tablecloths...
somehow they just go together.

seems fitting for them to be in the same place at the same time...

shades of pink and blue...

smells of sweet rose perfume wafting in the air.

dancing once in awhile as the wind gently blows...

and standing like tin soldiers when it is still.

Blessings~

So very lovely to see your beautiful tablecloths gently swaying in the breeze. Your sweet roses do compliment the pretty patterns and textures of the tablecloths!

Delightful post!

You have a lovely collection of table cloths.... Isn't it amazing how they always look so old fashion and pretty blowing in the breeze....reminds me of the days when everything was lined dried and now I do close to nothing on the line....
