After decluttering my linen cupboard this week, I looked longingly at my pile of beautiful tablecloths. Some modern, most vintage. I so love to have a tablecloth on the table but it's just not worth my while with my messy eaters. I no sooner have the tablecloth on and something's spilt. There might come the day when they will be civilised enough to eat with a tablecloth on the table or I might just start making the tabecloths into some of these projects I saw on Pinterest.
