How I missed you yesterday! Are you having a good week so far? I wish we had time to sit and enjoy coffee together and chat for a while. This blog thing is so one-sided! There’s so much I’d like to know about you.
I should do a chat post sometime…ask you questions and you answer and ask me questions through comments …or I could arrange a Google hangout so we could all meet virtually face-to-face. It’s the coolest thing! Some of us on the Jubilee Journey do that.
Another cool thing that I love? Things lined up in rows. When the crops are planted, we look out most any window and see the symmetry of plantings, row after row, side by side, dancing in unison in the breeze.
Synchronized swimmers come to mind.
I didn’t intend for this center collection to resemble cauliflower. Cabbage leaf place mats lined beneath fresh cuttings of snowball blooms created the illusion, so I went with it.
I don’t know about you, but we’re already fighting the bug battle. I thought it appropriate to bring out the bug table-cloth.
If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Celebrate them, even!?
Do you like how I fold table clothes that are too long for our table? Did you notice the fold before I mentioned it?
These chargers were a pretty good deal at HobLob. I intend to paint them at some point. They remind me of sunflowers and turn the plate into a big happy face.
I brought out my grandmother’s Sheffield by Salem in blue French lavender. (Read the story of how I found my grandmother’s china here.)
PAM’s Syracuse dinner plates are just enough larger than the Sheffield dinners to reveal a tiny rim of blue.
The blues aren’t an exact match, but PAM says your eye will compensate.
It’s amazing how that works.
I added another shade of blue in the stemware for your eye to compensate. (Wink.)
It’s not summer yet, but we know it’ll be here soon. Here’s a poem to enjoy as we wait with (fanning) anticipation.
Sounds of Summer
by Patricia Neely-Dorsey
Chirping of the crickets,
Buzzing of the bees,
Bullfrogs croaking in the pond,
Birds singing in the trees,
There are sounds of summer
That we all wait to hear;
It’s part of what’s so wonderful
about that time of year.
Thank you, Patricia, for sharing your talent with us. You can like Patricia Neely-Dorsey on Facebook here. She’s a big promoter of our state (Mississippi).
If you enjoy tablescape center collections in a row, you might also like “The Color Purple” Tablescape from a couple of years ago.
This Green Apple Tablescape has a row type of symmetry, too.
Speaking of symmetry, do you prefer a-symmetrical decor or are you strictly symmetrical? Just curious.
Hugs and blessings~
I’m sharing this post at Tablescape Thursday.
