Is there a word for completely over-the-top, wink-and-giggle-inducing, extreme vintage cuteness? Well, it's not a word exactly, but my friend Eve and I have a thing by which all other things in this category are measured.
It's The Wiener Tablecloth.
It's the size that would fit perfectly over the picnic table at a barbecue. And you can tell what's on the menu. It's wieners. Dancing cowboy wieners.

When I want to make Eve smile, I just remind her that she owns the wiener tablecloth. If we've been out picking and come across something particularly adorable, it may be described as wiener-tablecloth-good.
So next time you're feeling like you need something to lift your mood, join us in turning your thoughts to the cutest thing in table linens. It helps if you say it out loud. "Wiener Tablecloth."
