Yes, more ivy : )

Yes, more ivy : )

Because we said goodbye to one of our friends yesterday it seemed comforting to bring another one back.

We’ve used this cloth and couple of times before and I love the contrast of the red vines with the white border and green leaves and center

Day 241 – Steel Magnolias

Magnolias or ??

Are these Magnolias? Truthfully I’m not sure. I would almost guess Dogwood, since Magnolia leaves are big BUT there is a reason I’m using this one today.

Day 227 – Rainbow Green

Another plaid!

Another plaid!

I gotta say, I love plaids!

This is what I call a Grandma-print. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, its just not MY thing. Normally I don’t seek these out but this one was part of a ‘cutter’ bundle so I thought, why not?

Not so 'Grandma' now!
