Vintage Tablecloths and Vintage Pyrex. I'm in Love.

Oh, how I love a vintage tablecloth. They're so kitschy and fun. People rarely set their tables with tablecloths anymore though. Including me. We don't even always eat at the kitchen table. Some nights you can even find us eating at the coffee table in front of the TV. Shame on us. Especially when I own a beautiful vintage tablecloth like this.
Aren't the colors just gorgeous? I love it when I can find vintage linens with vibrant colors like this. This tablecloth caught my eye because I think that the greens are the same shade as Jadite. Imagine the table I could set with some Jadite dishes and this colorful tablecloth decked out in carnations.
Unfortunately, I have this little issue with impulse control. So, I try to avoid starting an obsession. If I bought one Jadite dish, I'd have to buy twenty more. And then twenty more. And before you know it, the Jadite dishes have taken over my house. So, I'm scared to buy much Jadite. I love it though and I always admire it in the flea markets, thrift shops and antique malls.
Besides, at the moment, I'm on a Pyrex kick. I stumbled upon a bowl I liked awhile back. I used it in my Cucumber and Onion salad recipe.
And the only reason I bought that bowl was because it matched this bowl. It's perfect for holding grapes at a vintage tea party. Umm, do you see a pattern here?
And I bought these cute little Pyrex refrigerator dishes the other day. Why? Because they matched the other ones. That's why. What more explain does anybody need? Except now I'm really in trouble. I've really gone and done it. I looked up the name of the Pyrex pattern. It's called Butterprint Amish. Why is this a problem? Because now I can search e-bay for more matching pieces. And it turns out there's a ton of it. Go have a look for yourself right here. I think I'm in love.
