Vintage Embroidered Tablecloths

I thought that today I would share two of my special vintage finds. Above is a photo of a tablecloth I found at an antique shop last year. I love blue and white and I thought this would look so very pretty with tea and cookies displayed on it!

I love the hand embroidery, and admire all the work that someone put into it.

 I found this tablecloth recently at a weekly craft market, called the Windmill. I thought what a perfect keepsake from a really fun day, especially considering the lovely hand embroidered windmills.

Oh, this dutch theme is just so cute! The details are so pretty.

I am now inspired to make a hand embroidered tablecloth of my own. Once I get started I will post photos. : )

Zucchini Pancakes and Blueberries

One day last week we enjoyed a delightful meal comprised of foods from our garden! Cucumbers and tomatoes, early potatoes I dug up just to make sure all is well and zucchini pancakes. The LORD is so good. : )

Here is the recipe we use for zucchini pancakes. I found it last year on the Taste of Home website and it has become a real summer time favorite.

Zucchini Pancakes-


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Sour cream, optional


  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, Parmesan cheese, oregano, salt and pepper. Combine the zucchini, egg, onion and mayonnaise; stir into dry ingredients until well blended.
  • In a large skillet, melt butter. Drop zucchini mixture by cupfuls into skillet; press lightly to flatten. Fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sour cream if desired. Yield: 3 servings.

    • This morning we went to the Sugar Shack a beautiful blueberry farm. Picking blueberries is something I look forward to every year. The blueberries are very sweet this year due to all the sunshine we have had. We are hoping to return before the season is over. I must say blueberries are my favorite!

      "You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance." Psalm 65:11
