Teal or Jade New Square Linen Tablecloth

Jade or Teal Square Tablecloth 75x75

Jade or Teal Square Tablecloth 75×75

This is a new tablecloth available now in my ArtFire studio. The color is a teal green/jade with a crème floral design. This handmade square linen tablecloth is designed for a 5′ table. Obviously and unfortunately, it is not being displayed on such a table since I don’t have that style of table. To give a visual of how much the drape is, I have positioned it on the corner of my standard height table as if it were actually placed on a 5′ square table.

This tablecloth is heirloom quality and something you would be proud to use and hand down to a daughter or granddaughter. The fabric is from the former Summer Hill Ltd collection of fine drapery and upholstery fabrics. These fabrics were not available in their day to the public but sold to high end designers, architects and upholsterers.

There are four yards of linen fabric in this tablecloth. The original wholesale price of this fabric was $45 per yard. The fabric could be considered vintage by some. Just depends on whose determination of what vintage is. Some say 20 years some say 25. This fabric was manufactured and printed in 1992, that would be 21 years ago. It was new still on the bolt when I purchased it. I have maybe 15 yards left and I will gladly consider making accessories to match this tablecloth if one so desires.

Micro Fiber Car Wash Towel

 

A Car Wash Towel  The newest item in my ArtFire studio is a car wash towel.  Odd right?  Yeah, I thought so too.

It all came about because I decided to wash my car this morning.  Now, I don’t use the fancy brushes or the drive throughs.  I’m of the opinion that the best car wash is a hand wash.   My husband always has those spendy suds on hand to wash his sports car so I put some in a bucket with warm water and went out to begin.  Hmmm… “What to use to wash with?”  I usually use a worn out small bath towel cut in half.  All those seem to have disappeared from our place so I began to think of what else I might have that would do the job.  Then, it came to me.   I have this fuzzy wool and cotton blend fabric.  Yeah, that should work fine.  I cut off a strip of it from the bolt and off I was to wash.

To my surprise it worked better than fine.  It worked fabulously.  I was done in record time and the car was clean; no streaks of missed road grime.  Done!  My thought was, “If I like this so well surely with a little effort in the design department, others might like this as well.”  So I conned my sister in law into washing her ride so I could take some pictures.  And, I talked my son into washing his ride to get a couple more.  They both liked the cloth.  My son used his with some polishing compound to clean his rims.  He was quite happy with the result.   I was amazed at how easily the road grime washed from his cloth when he was finished.  Just a little dish detergent and gently scrubbing and it rinsed away cleanly.
