Cup of tea?
Last week That silly lil' Doe was kind enough to send me the latest copy of Marie Claire Idees. I cannot even begin to tell you how excited that made me. You would think that in a city like St. Louis you could find a copy of that magazine, but no, you can't. And this issue did not disappoint. I fell head over heels in love with this set of towels. The ones in the magazine are for each day of the week, but I just went with 3.
I had some Martha Stewart towels left over from when I was appliqueing towels for Christmas presents, and they are perfect. Gingham, rick rack, flowery vintage style prints, what's not to love? I made a cake and cake plate;
the all important tea cup;
and a fancy tea pot. I used a few more of those 5 inch squares from that long ago 5 inch square fabric swap, including the one for the lid here, complete with little tea pots! Perfect. The only question is, can I bring myself to use them?
I wish the photos were better, but we are never going to have anything but rain here ever again apparently. I had better start building an ark. There was so much water in our backyard yesterday that those huge plastic toys were about an inch from actually floating in the yard.
There are close up photos on Flickr.
There was a bit of thrift store magic this morning too. I managed to find two (!!) feedsacks in a bag of fabric. Love them.
