Cute fabric, great retro teatowel, wonderful book...could it be valuable? It looks old.
I like the S & P shakers too, but I like the cloth under them even better. Is that another opshop buy?

REread: i thought perhaps swedish as well or nordic.

Gina : the book is a reprint of an old book hence the beautiful reproduced prints. that cloth was an op shop buy. two beautifully worked cherubs inserted into a plain cotton runner. i don't think it is vintage tho. i am not an expert so can't really tell.

andrea: thanks!

Pam: any relation? lol.

Oh those shakers are so sweet! I love them! I have a bad case of thrift envy! And the donkey fabric - what a find!

By the way is Op shopping what Ozzies call thrift shopping or charity shopping?
