A French Striped Tablecloth Giveaway

Good afternoon!

I have wanted a French style striped tablecloth for ages. I already own a lovely red and taupe striped tablecloth but I really wanted one with dark blue grey stripes. I have looked everywhere and not found one that I want. 

So what's a craft lovin' DIY girl to do but make one herself.

And what's an entrepreneurial craft lovin' DIY girl to do but decide to offer them for sale.

Reminiscent of a vintage grain sack, this 100% cotton fabric is quite lovely. The white is a slight off white and the stripes are a dark blue/grey.  It's not a super heavy weight but it has a lovely stiffness and weight that makes it iron easily and drape nicely.

And what's a entrepreneurial craft lovin' DIY girl who has a blog to do but decide to give away one as well.

After all it's Christmas time and I'm feeling generous!

Don't you just love these gorgeous clay tags from Marley & Lockyer that I've used as little serviette rings. If you don't already know Ness and her beautiful blog you really must check it out. She is incredibly artistic and talented and is such a lovely person as well.  You can order these tags and many other beautiful clay and linen items on her blog.

The white roses and rosemary sprigs are from our garden.  they both smell beautiful. I like the pops of green against the blue and white table setting. If you want to buy one of these gorgeous table cloths go here.  I have yet to work out shipping costs but will be adding those details in the next few days.

If you love all things French, linens, home decor, and blue striped and also for free ...then here's what you need to do:

  1. Love the tablecloth Fiona, the whole setting looks beautiful. I never pay enough attention to detail on dining settings and wish I did, maybe I will when I grow up ;)

    Are the stripes painted on or sewn in? However you did it, it really is lovely. And yes I think it makes a fantastic addition to your range.

    Hey just scrolled back up for another look and noticed you still have your mirror, did the sale fall through? I still have mine too, plenty of people say they love it, but not enough to take it home, obviously! Seriously thinking about keeping it and hanging it in my entryway.

    I'll share your post on both my fb pages of course :)

  18. Thanks for the fun, it certainly would be lovely to win a beautiful tablecloth for Christmas in our new home, of just three weeks. I had a smaller, somewhat similar version of that one some years ago - always loved the blue/ grey and white. It would look good with my few pieces of my Grandmother's green depression glass too I think.
    Happily follow your sites.
    Merry Christmas,

  26. Hi Fiona
    Love the tablecloth- I have a bedspread that is pretty much the same and am basing my whole wedding around this blue and white striped theme.

    I have started following you through google friend connect/ am a follower on facebook/ instagram and also shared the comp on my facebook wall.

    Love the whole setting you put together- would love to attend a dinner with that setting:)

  27. This really is a beautiful tablecloth - very elegant. I also like the traditional Provencal-style French <a href="http://www.occitanimports.com/">tablecloths</a>, though.
