Vintage picnic napkins wrapped with an unusual napkin ring. Do you know what it is?
I found rolls of this shelf decor from the 50s. This is the vinyl stuff you would put on the edge of open shelving in your kitchen. I cant for the life of me remember what it is called, but I do remember it. Im sure one of you junkers will be able to help me out!
The whole enchilada. Vintage picnic table cloth, vintage scrap fabric, combo of old napkins, Campbells covered soup bowls, Campbells cook books, Campbells thermos, an antique jam crock from England, shelving edge decor, and a vintage custard cup. They are all playing nicely together in the sandbox!
The cookbooks make clever little place mats. When lunch is done you can use them to find savory recipes for dinner. Spread-a- Burger, Pizza Doggies, Chickety Chick, or perhaps The Square Dance Special! Just saying...
Choose a page with pictures to add color to your table setting!
A bowl for her...
And a bowl for him...
Fill em up with good old fashion Campbells Tomato Soup and some croutons for good measure!
I love this little jam crock from England. I paid 3 bucks. It is a great container for succulents!
The thermos is tried and true floral container. Some things just never get to old!

CottageElements writes: Sue, I have a few old cook books and some of the recipes crack me up. One of these days I may even have to try some! Hope the soup hit the spot. We really do need some spring weather!
