Day 255 – Scones and roses

Blue, yes blue, roses

Blue, yes blue, roses

Blue roses…

I bought this cloth in a big bundle from a very nice lady at the Alameda Flea market last month. I wasn’t sure I wanted it, although its in pretty good condition, but Angie talked me into it : )

I decided

Day 237 – Red Morning Glory morning : )

RED morning glory's!

RED morning glory's!

Day 100 – It’s a Brady dinner!

Pretty groovy : )

Day 29 – Red Gingham and blue violets

Gingham BOWS!

Gingham BOWS!

We’ve got reds, we’ve got blues and we’ve got BOWS!!

Long ago, in a costume galaxy not so far away, I loved bows (it was the 80′s and perfectly appropriate!). My mother said she could tell which costumes I had designed when she saw the bows. There is
