Day 237 – Red Morning Glory morning : )

RED morning glory's!

RED morning glory's!

If this looks familiar, it’s because I also have this in orange : ) It’s good to be consistent. Both sets were purchased from Nadine, both have napkins and I *think* she said the orange was less common that the red but hey – this is RED!

Day 230 – The Rainbow!

If this looks vaguely familiar its because I own its cousin, and we used it Day 7 (Dinner is Served). Both came from Nadine and both are Wilendur prints. This just seemed like the right one to end a week of rainbow tablesettings.

The WHOLE rainbow!

Day 181 – Gold holly

Time for holly!

Time for holly!

I had completely forgotten about this tablecloth, it was in my “cutter” stack. While cleaning up my daughters room I found an entire stack of these cloths and this one is PERFECT for the season.

Pretty good for a cutter : )

Just so we’re all

Day 180 – Bows, wreaths and holly!

A wreath and a bow

As promised we are back in the land of conventional and NO glitter!

Sue loved this print so much she bought it three times, in three different sizes for her Christmas feasts. It is the epitome of Christmas decorations to me, with its cheerful bows,
