Day 253 – Red Ivy…yes, red : )

Yes, red ivy...

Yes, red ivy…

I did say that we had lots of ivy-themed tablecloths : )

It does have one of my favorite color combos, the red and grey, but it also has that weird green that I need to be careful with. Don’t really want to evoke Christmas now that

Day 244 – A little bit of gold, a little bit of black

Black and gold : )

Black and gold : )

This is one of a stack of cloths found at our last foray at the Alameda Flea market, and it has a friend! Sue owns this print in blue WITH napkins, we used it on day 120, just before our Halloween madness.
