WINNER!!! Giveaway: “Stained Class, Hanky Panky”

The winner of my “Stained Class, Hanky Panky” tablecloth giveaway is: Renee Chastain, who said:

“My favorite vintage linens are beautiful tone-on-tone ones (i.e. ecru linen with ecru embroidery, white crochet on white cotton, etc.), especially if the patterns originated in the “Old Country.” There is something so sentimental, historical, and meaningful, whether you know the person who made the piece or not.
