IMG_1378.Ajpg

This is, surprisingly, one from Angie’s collection, and its not pink!

This is TINY, for a card table and the only way I could get it on my table and have it look nice was to put it over a plain white cloth. It’s also a rectangle so

My mother bought this cloth from Nadine a couple of months ago. One of her best friends, Barbara, LOVES blue irises so it was her idea to buy this and give it to her on her anniversary.

When I first spied this placemat and napkin set in amongst the delights Nadine had to offer, my mother said “Why on earth would you want something like that?” After all, there’s only two of each and they aren’t a favorite color combo. Then I remembered some tea dishes my sister has
