Day 250 – Lavender and yellow leaves


This gorgeous little cloth was in amongst a stack of cutters – you can just see a little stain at the edge of one of the leaves. If that were the only issue this cloth had that would be no biggie but this is one well-used and well-loved piece. It has

Hello bright florals : )

We’re having topsy-turvy weather around here. Normally this time of year is gorgeous, 70’s, cool nights…but you know something is askew when its warmer in South San Francisco, where I work, and Walnut Creek, where I live. If its 68 degrees there it should be around 80+

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 65 – Hot, hot, hot fiesta!


It’s a little warm here : ) Just a little…

This tablecloth is just full of heat – I bought it at the 127 Yard Sale on a very warm day. The biggest difference between their 96 degrees and ours is the humidity. We have almost none, theirs hovers
