Day 72 – Purple Elegance

This stunning purple pitcher was my Grandma Bertha’s. She LOVED purple and we have very little from her, but we have this : )

It’s been warm, and I’ve been tired so I wanted something peaceful and a little elegant.

Purple simplicity

Lots of purple stuff! At

Day 71 – Pink girly bows

Pink bows : )

So once again my 80’s side comes out…pink and grey and bows. All we need to really complete the picture is lace bows, do we all remember those fashion statements? Laura Ashley could do no wrong, ‘Victoria’ magazine was the BEST and if it stood still long enough,

Day 70 – Nasturtium Lunch

Day 67 – Fruit galore

Fruit and bright colors : )

We’re back in my comfort zone – fruit AND bright colors! I figured I owed it to myself after the green/pink of yesterday. I found this gem on ebay while looking for “vintage red tablecloths”. Try it sometime – that combination of words usually brings up

Day 66 – Pink Thai dinner

Green & pink grandma time!

This tablecloth has literally been in my way for months. Why it hasn’t been packed away to use in the future is a mystery – this is one of those ‘cutter’ cloths that I bought for a few dollars. It’s a ‘California Hand Print’ and the person
