Tuesday, June 15


Greetings, dear reader!

As you've probably deduced from my Facebook page and Tweets...I have been very busy writing and working on assorted projects (of course while still working a full time job as a counselor and missions deacon!) I have been archiving photographs (for my book), crafting vintage campers for my camper tag swap, training for a 5K, and (in my spare time) SEWING! Here's what I've created today:

It's usually my "thing" to embellish something TO DEATH, however for this particular project, I wanted the altered tablecloths to be the focal point, not all of the embellishments. I may add a few vintage buttons here and there, but for the most part I'm calling it "done."

Because many of you have expressed an interest in vintage tablecloth banners, and have told me you have difficulty finding good quality vintage towels and table coverings... I have gathered a giveaway....just for you!

I have cut some extra pennants from the vintage tablecloths, and I have included the same vintage bias tape used to string the pennants...a few old buttons, two of the little bluebird images, and some chipboard letters you can paint to match...spell whatever you like...there is a full alphabet included!

I will also throw in some of the fabric I used for the backing of your pennants...

All you need to do, is comment on this post and I'll enter you into the drawing! I'll draw a name on June 21...the first day of summer! Good Luck!

More soon,
Paula Clare

Oh that banner is great! I've always been afraid to cut into one of those lovely old tablecloths, but your banner is so cute, I must (if I don't win yours!).

From the looks of the campers pulling in, you're going to have the cutest little campground in the midwest!
