Day 258 – Chartreuse & Ivy

Yes, more ivy : )

Because we said goodbye to one of our friends yesterday it seemed comforting to bring another one back.

We’ve used this cloth and couple of times before and I love the contrast of the red vines with the white border and green leaves and center

Day 255 – Scones and roses

Blue, yes blue, roses

Blue roses…

I bought this cloth in a big bundle from a very nice lady at the Alameda Flea market last month. I wasn’t sure I wanted it, although its in pretty good condition, but Angie talked me into it : )

Day 254 – Leap year day!

Bows and calla lilies : )

In the same pile o’ stuff we found at the last Alameda Flea market as yesterday’s gold was this gem : ) I have consistent taste, it seems, since I own this in the pink/grey combo!

But how could I resist when the calla

Day 241 – Steel Magnolias

Magnolias or ??

Are these Magnolias? Truthfully I’m not sure. I would almost guess Dogwood, since Magnolia leaves are big BUT there is a reason I’m using this one today.

1 – The cool grey/green vibe going. Needed a break after the whole red thing last week…
