The Ul-tomat-um






Ok, what to put under the cloche? At Easter it was a bunny, for summer some dogs, but for fall ... ??? Being as there aren't any "real" mini pumpkins our right now, I suppose I will hold on a wee bit more of "summer" and put some vintage tomato salt and pepper shakers. Ya'll know I love red!!!!!!!! Check out what Dena at http://swaddlecottage.blogspot.com/ did under her cloche! The other day I was surfing through my favorite blogs and saw that she had put a cool Halloween cat under hers. Dena, who is a sweetie pie, has some great fall items that she has shared with us on her blog! Stop by for a visit and a hello!

Mornin' Becky,

I just love the way the red pops on that white plate! Very cute! You are so sweet, thank you for mentioning my blog. I am touched daily by the warmth of this amazing community. It's like finding your sisters. Who knew there were so many wonderfully like minded women out there?

Huge hugs to you :)

Hi! Found your blog through Swaddle Cottage and it IS cute! I love your scottie dog; my husband and I thought of getting one but heard they were high-strung. Is that true? We wound up with a bassett :) I also love your Amy ribbon; my sister-in-law is recovering from a double mastectomy, and her name is Amy!! I just might borrow it, if that's ok with you :)
Have a great Sunday-
Sarah

Oh, my sweet Becky - me again, thanks for leaving your comment over at Esther Sunday today. To answer your question on the living room redo- I actually got a chance to paint some more today and I am closing in on finishing up the furniture. Next chore - the walls!!!! Yikes! As I am working, etc. just trying to fit in what I can! I did get some white valances with crochets edges while I was away. Gonna crochet a red trim for the bottom myself from that "Edgings Book". You bet your sweet patootie that I entered your drawing! So good to see you again! Lovies, Esther

The shakers are cute under glass!
I love cloches...I have put birds nests, last fall I turned upside down & filled it with dried pomegranites, leaves, and acorns place the plate on top & turn back over...I do the same with vintage glass ornaments! So, so fun!

I love this idea but I'm so afraid my cats would smash it. I'm going to have come up with a modified version of your cloche. Too cute!

Love,
