Christmas Table Cloth

This Christmas table cloth was one of my mother’s most treasured items made by my grandmother circa 1960s. It was the last decoration to come out each Christmas season after all the others were finished. We usually had something delicious baking as we set up the table. My grandmother died when my mother was a young woman. This was one of the first items she claimed as her own. When my mother died suddenly this past October, this table cloth become mine. Having the table set with this cloth brought so many warm and loving memories of Christmases past, making a difficult season a little easier to manage.
