Wonderful old piece .

I got this beautiful old tablecloth from my deceased mother in law.
(sorry for the terrible pictures)
Filled with spots of delicious eating together at the table.
The flowers are so beautifully made,so refined !
For weeks,i am thinking of what i will do with this wonderful piece of work.
It is a shame to cut up this table cloth but on the other hand it's not useful any more.
Hmm, i let it sink in for a while : )

 I was  very happy to get this magnolia branch of our neighbour.
He said that the heyday was over but everything was still in bud.
And look one, opened up!
