Yummy lace on the kitchen table

The bedspread that used to be on the kitchen sofa ended up on my kitchen table!

The crocheted lace  is so chunky and beautiful

Love the dark wood shining through the pattern

My source of inspiration - Swedish painter and interior designer 
Carl Larsson (1853-1919)

My favourite cushions for the kitchen sofa

Blue and white stripes, always very kitchen like

  2. I love your kitchen and the tablecloth or bedspread :).

  3. Oh my goodness sweet friend, your lace tablecloth is stunning! If there's something I totally love in this world to dress my tables, is exactly THIS..gorgeous crochet lace tablecloths. Thanks for your sweet comments. Happy Sunday.

  4. Hi Pernilla! Oh, what a lovely crocheted piece. I crochet and know the time it takes to make some thing like this. I've crocheted 2 tablecloths! :)
    Your pillows look lovely too.
    Thank you so much for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  5. Love the blues! My mom used to decorate our home with blues, giving it the country/cottage feel, when I was a kid. Beautiful!

  26. One of the things I love about French design is the Swedish design it incorporates!
    All the crisp blue and white! I love your tablecloth! What work went into it! I have one like it that I found at GW. I wondered if it was a bed cover or tablecloth? Now I know - both!
    Lovely post!
