Does anyone else love Urns & Garlands as much as I do? How about "New" Old Stock or fine Double Damask Linen Tablecloths? This just in a vintage white Linen (100%) Irish Double Damask Tablecloth (64"x 81"). They don't make it like they used to (actually they do it is just multiple times the cost - visit Thomas Ferguson Irish Linens). Looking for the perfect white linen tablecloth for all of your upcoming entertaining read more below or visit us at Sugar et Cie.
This luxurious white linen tablecloth, is made from the ultimate in fine Irish linen, double damask. It is "new" old stock so it is the the best of both worlds. It is vintage, made from a high quality 100% linen, but "new" (never been used) old stock. Because it is linen and a white on white pattern it is extremely versatile. It would make the perfect backdrop for either casual white stoneware plates from Italy or for a set of French Limoges and crystal.
The economics of using the methods needed to produce linens of this quality today, is very costly. There is only one firm left weaving double damask Irish Linen today. In addition to the quality of the linen what we really love about this pattern is the mix of Greek urns and garlands. Likely to go fast. It is an unusual and sought after pattern so you should definitely snap this up before someone else does. More common patterns are scrolls and flowers.
Why is Irish Double Damask Linen so Desirable?
Irish Double Damask linen is world renowned as luxury quality linen. It has a lovely weight, is smooth and has a subtle sheen. The quality of the linen is evident in the fact that when washed and pressed it looks crisp without starch. It wears amazingly well. It is an heirloom piece that you can use for years to come!

Vintage quilt oven mitts, hot plates, and coasters have been added to my Etsy shop, link in bio. I decided to pull out my stash of vintage tablecloths and make a few oven mitts from those as well 😊😊 One of my customers told me she's using an oven mitt as a stocking and I thought that was such a neat idea. You could fill it with kitchen gadgets or goodies and give as a gift!
Summary of this year’s Christmas thriftfinds. Everything pictured was less than or a few euros. I’ve visited so many fleamarkets so many times. Vintage Christmas stuff is hard to come by at a decent price!
54 x 80” Calaprints ivy tablecloth in a dark chocolate brown. Outstanding with milk glass and white dishes. Nice big size for family dinners but it could be hemmed smaller because of the grid pattern. Less than perfect-has two areas of lighter color as shown in the last two photos. $18 plus ship. #dsv_availablepa#vintagetablecloth#vintagetableclothforsale
The final part of our boat build-along! Today we dress our little boat with some cheery bunting. The next picture will show you the flag we made to top off our mast, using a scrap of fabric in a simple knot. Our final step is to cut some teeny squares of fabric, add some glue and then pinch the bunting around our sail ropes. You can add as many or as few pieces of bunting as you like. Now we’re shipshape and ready to sail! Thank you so much for all the photos of your beautiful boat making, I’ve really enjoyed seeing your creations. Thank you for following this tutorial and if you made a little driftwood Boat, I would dearly love to see a photo 🌸 xx Jo
