Ruffles and Roses...

I have joined the crowd,
and made a ruffled bed skirt,
into a ruffled tablecloth...

like so many bloggers before me,
I couldn't resist!

I thought the hard part was going to be getting
reacquainted with my dusty sewing machine,
but really it was finding
the ruffled bed skirt to begin with

I found mine at overstock.com
I just peeked and all sizes are avaliable
here is a link if your looking...


the ruffles remind me of petticoats,
so I made my table cloth small,
to fit my table without the leaf...
intimate...

and I made it square to fit my round table,
I like the way it falls into points at the corners
 this way...




piles of ruffles
laying on your lap...
swoon....


do you remember
my roses of a few weeks ago?


I made them into a little topiary...

they dried nearly perfectly
in place..

I added a half a florist foam ball underneath
to perk them up
and added a few roses to the skimpy spots...


even though the weather is nasty outside...

my shabby new tablecloth
has me dreaming...


of spring...


of floral china
and pretty tablescapes...


are you dreaming of spring too?

Today I am joining...
and


Thanks for stopping by today,
I always enjoy our visits...
