More Christmas Tablecloths than Tables… Mehr Tischdeckchen als Tische
November is when I start cleaning the things I will need for the holidays. Glassware gets a polish, the “good dishes” get a wash, and the tablecloths all get checked for a touch-up iron. So, yesterday I went to the drawer were I keep the smaller Weinachts Tisch Deckchen (Christmas table cloths) and I realized something… over the past few years, I have managed to collect more tablecloths than I have Tables!
The thing is, I can’t give any of them up, they all of them come with a memory!
I remember where they all come from. My favorites are hand embroidered by family… my Oma, my Aunt or my Mother….
This tablecloth came from my mother’s mother… that’s her monogram. It’s nice, I grew up seeing it on so many linens, and I’m happy to have it now.
Others were gifts for special occasions, and are too special to give up. Isn’t it funny how much memory can be caught up in a piece of fabric?
And I love the new modern patterns that came out in recent years… so I may have picked up a few along the way…
So, what do I do?
I double check them all for spot or hidden stains. I take special care to iron each one. (My mother has a professional iron, so her tablecloths always look super smooth! I have a standard iron, and just can’t seem to get the cloths as crisp… even when I spray with water and starch… wishing we had a Heismangel near by).
