Vintage Tablecloth Curtain, Please.

I have a collection of vintage tablecloths .  I can't help myself, they call my name. They are so colorful, artsy and I love their thick cotton texture. I use them for lots of different things throughout the year. Among the collection are a few holiday ones.  I bring them out and adorn our front window with one, using it as a swag or valance.
Here's this years winner:

I simply hung it over the existing rod, gathered up the center and loosely tied it with burlap.
($3.99 a roll at Michael's)
Then tucked the tie ends up. Those are the loops. Nothing fancy.
On the burlap I pinned on some of my vintage brooches. 
Rhinestone pins... a sweet weakness of mine. Every year I pin 'em someplace different on the 'curtain'.
I like to experiment.

Ooooh Shiny.

So homey and holidayish. Is that a word? Holidayish? 
Should be.

  7. Love this idea, searching high and low now for these beautiful tablecloths instead of the plastic ones. Has anyone got any ideas where I can get them cheaply as I wish to dress all my windows with these now.
