Every so often I come across a pile of tablecloths all bundled together and marked as ‘cutters’, meaning they have some significant holes or stains that a serious collector would NEVER consider.
This was another one of those that I started out in one direction (not a lot of the chartreuse Fiesta, thought I wanted a lot of red) and took a right at Albuquerque.
I ended up ditching most of the red (shocking!) and using the green. I like the calm of the white in the sea of chartreuse. I like the subtle red stripe on the napkins, I didn’t like the red bistro silverware so I replaced it with the french ivory.
Then I added the little red glass footed bowls and my little 40′s salt and pepper shakers with the tail and the red was under control : )
Check out the vase AND the flowers! The vase is Hall, my youngest sister gave it to me. It’s a little on the ‘subtle’ side considering the riot of chartreuse on the table.
Speaking of riot of color…check out these roses! Red ones seemed too predictable and I like the slightly green edges on these, I just never expected them to open so beautifully!
Stuart came back to play. No flowers to eat, he took his usual spot and had a snooze.
