It’s funny how one thing you make on the spur of the moment can inspire something completely unexpected. Last Thursday night, while perusing a few favorite blogs, I saw that Jenna at The Painted Apron made this fun ribbon wreath for Valentine’s.
I’ve since removed the scarf from the hangar and wear it often (the scarf, not the hangar – haha!). The hanger heart needed some new action.
I’ll share soon how to make this rag wreath easily and efficiently.
I began while on Periscope Friday morning. If I were more technologically savvy, I could record it to share with you here. But. I’m. Not.
Last week, I placed the lace table-cloth on the dining table with this candelabra. Notice the heart motif in the center. Do you see it?
I didn’t have a plan yet. After completing the lavender heart wreath, I hung it on the candelabra. Just for fun.
After pulling out the (Sheffield by Salem) china that’s exactly like my grandmother’s Lost Lavender China, I realized I was establishing a lavender and lace theme.
The lavender blooms on the china are blue, but I understand it also came in the lavender color. The blue is less often found, though.
My Aunt D mailed me the silver ware that matches the china. Somehow when setting this table, I decided to use the silver ware PAM (Painter Artist Mom) gave me.
Sometimes I do un-explainable things. It’s called a brain vacation.
Possibly it’s because PAM’s silverware is polished (wink). I folded the paisley and DIY Lace -Trimmed Napkins together in a way that makes the white napkins resemble an apron effect.
Another un-explainable thing is why I placed the cup and saucer over the dinner plate. (Shameless?)
French Lavender Salt overflows antique salt cellars on bread and butter plates.
Home-Made Swedish Crescents are wrapped in Battenberg lace.
I keep real butter at room temperature in this French-style butter keeper from T. J. Maxx. I love the lacy rim.
Want to hear what happened when I placed a dot of soft real butter on the plate with spilled lavender salt?
What happened was…
I warmed a roll and dipped it into the salted lavender butter. OMGoodness!
Refrigerated lavender butter pats would be nice, wouldn’t it?
For the tea enhancements, I collected lemon wedges in a lacy bowl, lavender sugar, and a pretty container for honey. I left it empty, though, to show the pretty crystal pattern. (Ha! See photo-bomber Winston behind?)
I added this lavender sugar to my black coffee the last two mornings. I like it a lot!
These sweet salt and peppers belonged to my grandmother.
PAM shared the ceramic shoes a while back. This one’s my fave.
Do you like things flavored with lavender? Do you like the lavender color?
I’m sharing at Tablescape Thursday.
