I keep apologizing…this time not for not sharing a post, but for postponing a new Let's Get Personal Tour until tomorrow and it's going to be a Fantastic one 🙂 … i'm having too much fun celebrating my vacation here in Oldenzaal, a small village in the Netherlands. But these tablecloths by Onszelf caught my eye today in a new issue of the VT-Wonen magazine and thought you might like them too…


They are made from plastic, normally not my piece of cake, but during the summer and with children I do like these unqiue ones. Onszelf (= ourselves in Dutch) is the design duo Astrid Nieuwenbrug and Claudia Drube who also produced and designed a nice line of wallpapers…have a look here.

    These are the best looking plastic tablecloths I’ve seen yet. Fun and whimsical and so much better than the daisy/bed linen types that are out there right now. I wouldn’t mind these on my table.. and you’re right, esp with kids..

    I like them a lot, I was actually just thinking of one, having kids around the house regularly. But hard to find nice ones. I saw they have a selling point in Amsterdam, so hope to buy one this weekend 🙂 Thanks dear Irene! Enjoy every moment of your well deserved holiday and being with your family. Big kiss, Marjolein

    The first tablecloth reminds me a bit of Piet Hein Eek’s table made of recycled wood… I
    wouldn’t be surprised if they would make floor tiles with this motive printed on them some day…
