Red and white summertime strawberries
are on the table this week.
I'm still enjoying the picket fence table runner
I MAY'd, so I'm starting there.
The ric-rac trimmed strawberry placemats
were made by my mother-in-law's
church ladies group.
They made the candy striped napkins too.
They also made the coordinating
I even have the matching aprons.
They handmade lots of goodies to sell
at the church crafts fairs.
Love those church ladies!
This vintage strawberry jam pot also
belonged to my mother-in-law.
No one else in the family wanted all this "old stuff".
You can see my old Singer sewing machine table.
I tied a red gingham checked ribbon to
a plain glass votive and used a red candle.
White teapot and cow creamer.
I filled two old aqua Ball jars with fresh daisies.
A Longaberger coaster basket is lined in red and
filled with strawberry coasters.
A Longaberger strawberry basket is filled
with wooden strawberries.
A few extra strawberries are scattered on the pickets.
I thought the milk glass cake stand would look better
with a ribbon running through the cut out design.
I have a shelf above the utility sink in the laundry
room where I store large jars filled with saved ribbons.
I found one small spool of red with white dots.
I wove the ribbon in and out and
tied it with a bow.
I can see changing out different colors of ribbon
for all kinds of occasions.
A little bit wider ribbon would work best.
Cranberry Glazed Chicken for dinner.
