Today is the summer solstice, when the sun is at its northernmost point above the equator. It’s the longest day of the year, lasting 15 hours and 13 minutes. How I love long summer days!
To me, summer means alfresco dining at the beach or on the back deck. When I set my summer table, I like to use brightly patterned vintage tablecloths. Last week, to prepare for picnic season, I sorted through my collection and freshened them up by laundering and ironing everything. Then I placed my favorites in a 1940s market basket so that they would be easily accessible. Their cheerful fruit and flower designs never fail to brighten my day...
The ones that didn't make it into the basket are shown below. These are either already in my Etsy shop or will soon make their appearance.
Aren't they yummy?
