Over the Summer Fabby at Fabby's Living celebrated her third anniversary blogging you can see her beautiful Fourth of July Patriotic Tablescape anniversary post here. Fabby was celebrating by giving away a set of lovely "straw shawl" hand made place mats. From the moment I saw them I knew I would love to have them. When I found out I had won them I was delighted! I knew exactly how I would use them too. I had been looking for a place mat to use with my Royal China Cavalier Ironstone china. The pattern name is Sussex and it is a lovely vintage pattern with a brown floral on a creamy background. This china needed a lacy delicate place mat that would show off the pattern. I adore the way this table setting came out.
The place mat.
Thrift on ladies, thrift on - you never know what you are going to find.
