Day 238 – A cherry-valentine dinner

A cherry heart

What is better than a heart made of cherries for this Valentines Day? Not much… : )

Cherries upon cherries!

I did say we’d get back to red and pink, did I not?

Day 232 – Pink farm fields

Pink fields

I get the grey stone house but pink fields? Must be from the 50’s!

When you really look a the design of that house it’s pretty cool. Two story, lots of windows, huge fireplace…I used to think that would be where I would eventually live, maybe somewhere in

Day 136 – Fans galore

Pretty and delicate

Still feeling the desire for quiet and calm I pulled this small cloth out. It was a purchase from Nadine, complete with the pink-edged napkins. My mind started to wander over what I knew about fans which was surprisingly little. I was very pleased, when I typed ‘fans’ into

Day 88 – Tea with the ‘kids’

My ‘family’ had other ideas : )

Day 87 – Red, grey and forget-me-nots

Working with the red yesterday was so nice I felt like continuing the trend. This cloth was a cutter, meaning it has ‘issues’, some pretty big issues at that.

Holes, stains and tears…but it also has red, grey, a pretty fabulous bow-filled middle and an adorable scallop border. Poor thing, it
