I learn something new everyday and I think you will agree that learning about our vintage items never ends. Well, I went to Fabrics.net, a great resource about vintage, to see what info they had about the 1930`s tablecloths. I learned about "grinning". Have you noticed the white spaces, what I have always called halo`s, around the print on your tablecloth? Grinning separated the motifs and colors. Notice the white area around the red flowers in the picture below? The halo`s kept the colors and patterns from overlapping. Most of you probably already know that. I am always happy to learn something new and I like to share. When I see that white separation I know I have a 1930`s cloth. To learn more, go HERE.
