We’ve got the gamut of oranges here! And we did say that black, white and grey were neutrals so here we go – -
First I want to say that my mom inspired this one – she really likes orange and had a Marimekko print similar to this cloth hanging in our family room for years. It’s not that I don’t like orange, per se, its just not my favorite of colors. It was also my friend Pam that taught me to appreciate orange a little more so here we are guys! Orange in some of its many shades…
Most of the table is radioactive red vintage Fiesta. The small berry bowl holding a REAL orange and the cups & saucers are modern Persimmon Fiesta and the pitcher/tea pot is Hall. The frosted glasses are part of a larger set, the silverware a VERY inexpensive find at Salvation Army and the napkins are part of my Halloween madness collection.
I think we hit all the high notes : )
I had some very quiet companionship here – my big red/orange chicken Abigail. She’s not feeling well, and can just get up on the chair to sleep. I’m not sure how much longer we’ll have her : ( If you’ve never made the personal acquaintance of a chicken I highly recommend it. I’ve had chickens for almost 13 years now, as a matter of fact one of my original girls is still alive and going strong and I think a 13th birthday is a FINE reason to have a party!
Today we will just love the chickens. No matter who or what makes up your family, give them a hug. Today is all you’re guaranteed.
Tomorrow – Rainbow Yellow
