SAS in Review and a Plea

by Chris on June 29, 2011

Because I have a bit of an obsession with this tablecloth and because I have called no less than 7 stores looking for it, I am asking for your help!

raymond waites tablecloth

It’s a Raymond Waites tablecloth, and I bought it on clearance at Marshalls (Homegoods/TJMaxx). I put out a call for help on FB, but I’m taking it up a notch. I’ll pay whatever it takes (almost) in order to get another one. I’ll take any size but round. IF you find it, would you be the angel of all angels and send it to me?

There. My desperate plea is over. For now. Let’s move onto some highlights from SAS Day, shall we??? There were some GOOD ones this week! Here we go!

1st Lady of the House just gave me my next project. This lamp is adorable.

Do I really need to say anything about this table that The 36th Avenue revamped? It’s splendid, and you must go see the befores!

I don’t think How to Nest for Less could have chosen a better color for the drawers on this desk. I just love it.

Scissors and Spatulas. It has been determined that we can not be friends. She received this dresser for FREE and transformed it. Lucky. Girl.

I know you’ve seen these highlighted throughout blogland lately, but it certainly deserves it. Talk about doing a stump table right. SO cool! Good job, Thrifty and Chic

Our Daily Obsessions posted about a milk and cookies baby shower. This is one shower I would NOT miss. So cute and yummy!

The desk itself is already gorgeous, but Living Beautifully made it even better. Ooh la la!

Please go visit all these talented ladies! Some friends of mine and I have been talking about how low the comments seem to be lately. I know—we’re all busy. If you could find another second in your day to leave some “comment encouragement” for them that would be extra awesome!

I posted this link on facebook. It didn;t go through the first time. This one looks familiar, it’s on ebay. Hope this is it!

marie June 29, 2011 at 9:06 pm

like a needed another reason to go to marshall’s??? consider me on the hunt first thing tomorrow! :o)

Chris June 29, 2011 at 10:05 pm

I know, right, Marie? I didn’t think it would be too painful to give people an excuse to go shopping. Miss seeing you around, lady!

marie June 30, 2011 at 2:11 pm

i’m on my way this morning… as soon as that horrible casey anthony trial breaks for lunch. :oX i swear i’ve seen this tablecloth before….

Jen June 29, 2011 at 9:12 pm

Thank you so much for featuring my dresser! Would you consider being my friend if I find you that tablecloth? ;)

Chris June 29, 2011 at 10:04 pm

Consider? It’s done, Jen! We’ll be BFF’s forever–even if you don’t get the tablecloth. :)

Courtney {a thoughtful place} June 29, 2011 at 9:19 pm

Those are all gorgeous! Truly. I love that chair by the desk and that free dresser is killing me. Lucky indeed. I will pop into my Home Goods and see if the cloth is there.

Chris June 29, 2011 at 10:04 pm

Thank you, Courtney!

Allison A. June 29, 2011 at 9:38 pm

I’m headed off to Marshalls this afternoon. I’ll be happy to look for your tablecloth for you!

Chris June 29, 2011 at 10:03 pm

Thank you, Allison! I figure it’s worth a try, right? Have fun shopping! :)

Hope June 29, 2011 at 9:43 pm

Did you get a tablecloth yet? I’ll be going to a TJMAXX and HomeGoods this week. I’ll look if you still need one.

Chris June 29, 2011 at 10:02 pm

Not yet, Hope! Thank you for looking! Good luck!

Tiffany June 29, 2011 at 9:56 pm
Tiffany June 29, 2011 at 9:56 pm

Sorry, I didn’t notice that it is a round one…I was all excited for you!

Chris June 29, 2011 at 10:02 pm

I know! My heart skipped a beat, Tiffany! Thanks so much!

Nancy P June 29, 2011 at 10:05 pm

I sent you a reply on twitter but you may not see it. I did see this fabric on ebay althogh it looked like it might have been a green tint. Not sure but just a thought. I will also look in my local stores for this as well. :)

Kassi @ Truly Lovely June 29, 2011 at 10:11 pm

A milk and cookies any kind of party would be way fun!! :) And delicious!

Allison June 29, 2011 at 10:14 pm

Great features!
As for the low comments, I would guess a large reason for that is the trouble with blogger. I would say Blogger won’t let me comment on about 50% of the blogs. Sad!!

Chris June 29, 2011 at 11:18 pm

Oh no. That IS a problem, Allison. Just one more reason to move on over to WordPress! :)

Erin Hankins June 29, 2011 at 11:01 pm

Thank you so much for featuring my desk!! I love your website and feel so honored to be a spotlight this week :)

Chris June 29, 2011 at 11:18 pm

I’m glad I can do it, Erin! It’s a cute desk! You deserve the feature!

kristin June 29, 2011 at 11:21 pm

WOW…some super fabulous highlights!!!
Good luck finding the tablecloth…I would go look for you but if I go out shopping that means I would have to buy something too :)

Mimi June 29, 2011 at 11:31 pm

Well, I’m due a visit to TJ and Marshall’s so I will look when I go here in NC! Love how you asked and it will be fun to see what happens – I just bet most of us love the thrill of the hunt!

Chris June 30, 2011 at 2:38 am

That made me laugh, Mimi! I would be the same way! Any excuse to go shopping, eh? :)

amy jupin June 30, 2011 at 12:43 am

i actually have one of these tablecloths…i had two but i cut one up to make pillow covers!! (don’t hate.) i will check my tj maxx tomorrow and see if they have any more. it’s been a month or so, but fingers crossed. :)

Chris June 30, 2011 at 2:37 am

We think alike, Amy! The other tablecloth is for another curtain panel, and I bought the round tablecloth for pillow covers! No hating over here!

Megan June 30, 2011 at 2:31 am

I purchased the same Raymond Waites placemats. The pattern is beautiful! I’m always at TJ Maxx and Home Goods so I will definitely keep an eye out for you.

Chris June 30, 2011 at 2:36 am

Thanks so much, Megan!

Mallory June 30, 2011 at 6:59 pm

Love that tablecloth. I’ll keep an eye out. In the meantime, do you own an iPhone? They have a few great apps (my faves are The Find and Amazon Price Check). You can scan the barcode on the item and it’ll show places that sell it even online. I bought spice jars at TJ Maxx and needed more. Found them at an online store!

Desiree Campbell July 1, 2011 at 5:18 am

Oh my goodness… THANK YOU SO MUCH for the feature! So sweet of you…

Heldy July 1, 2011 at 12:59 pm

Hi Chris! I will pop in there today and see if they have it.

Laura W. July 5, 2011 at 4:38 am

I don’t know where in MI you live, but do you have any in the Lansing area checking? If not I can check in the next few days probably since I live in that area.

Shanna July 6, 2011 at 11:50 pm
Andrea Jeska July 23, 2011 at 4:03 am

Have you checked out World Market? They don’t have the exact same pattern, but they have some very similar ones (Check out the Tamara and Arpella collections). If you end up not being able to find another one like yours, you may be able to start over with one of these! And save yourself a step becuase they are already curtains. I have the Arpella voile curtains and LOVE them!

Amy February 21, 2012 at 3:08 pm

Hi Chris. I realize your post about the tablecloth was a long time ago, but I was searching the web for a tablecloth when I came across this site. I saw that same tablecloth today on If you are still interested in buying it, they have only one left. It’s rectangular, 60″ x 102″, and the price is $33.00. Looks like they also had a round one that has already been sold. But you said you didn’t want round anyway. Good luck shopping!

Kim March 8, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Just saw the Raymond Waites tableclotshs at my TJMaxx. Do you still need one? They had the oblong sizes. K-

Heather June 23, 2012 at 3:03 pm

Found a whole stack of the middle and larger sized oblong tablecloths at my local Marshalls in Raleigh, NC. They are $17 and $19 each. Let me know if you’re still looking.

Heather June 23, 2012 at 3:04 pm

They also have the 20″ napkins in this pattern too.
