"Make a remark",
said the Red Queen,
"it's ridiculous to leave all the conversation
to the pudding!"
~Lewis Carroll

New/old acquisitions to show today~
Somebody put some time into
stitching those berries. 
I'm going to appreciate their handiwork
and enjoy this small tablecloth.
The plate will soon 
find a spot with some other
red transferware
on a wall.

This photo is inspired by French General 
a shop in LA that has vintage sewing 
notions and jewelry kits as well
as fabric. 
If you go to the website
look not only at the left hand
categories but the wee ones at
the top as well. 
Check out those Chateau Getaway 
trips! Two still have spaces left...
are you thinking what I'm thinking?

Yeah, I have to stay here too :/ 


see you there! said...

Hmmm, you mean you and I aren't taking those two remaining spaces? Dang it. Well, we'll just stay here and appreciate "red" this month.

Hello Phyllis:
We love your splashes of red! Just the dash of heat that we need in damp, dreary, dismal and cold England!

The embroidered cloth is lovely. Perfect for setting out Afternoon Tea on, we imagine....thinking of strawberries and cream for summer days...ahhhh!!
