Inch by inch, row by row…
My, how her garden grows! (I’m not her, y’all. Think of Miss Muffet or someone like that. Aren’t nursery rhymes soothing?)
I set a table with my two favorite gardening signs in mind. In the process, the “garden” on my table grew. 🙂
Our frequent rains last week brought this setting indoors.
Just before the torrent, I snipped flowers from a few plants, including the potted dragon wing begonia you saw on the Hurray for the Red, White, and Blue tablescape. Plants get so leggy they need to be trimmed!
When seeing these colors, I immediately thought of the plates I found at Burlington while visiting Philly.
These plates inspire me to mix reds with pinks and purples, and I love it all together!
Isn’t it scrumptious?
PAM (Painter Artist Mom) gave me the aqua colored canning jars, and I added a color that isn’t on the plate design. Some of the pictures show it as more blue than aqua.
Artsy PAM says “Your eye will compensate” when colors aren’t an exact match.
I created an aqua repeat with one of the candle holders.
So, that makes it all better, right?
You know it bothers me to have one plate, so I created a simple stack with herb bread and butter plates. Don’t flowers look more lush and smell even better when surrounded by herbs? I’d have more herbs planted if I had unlimited time to dig.
This may be the last time you see this fabric as a table-cloth. I’m hoping to make something else with them soon. But, they’re in line behind a few other projects. You know how it is!
What do you like to make from former table-cloth fabrics?
