everything's coming up roses...

It must be spring fever...anything with roses lately has seemed exceptionally appealing, like this little floral plate I found at the antique co-op...

...and this little pitcher from a different shop...

Even at the fabric store, which I haven't been to since the holidays, these beautiful rose fabrics caught my eye...




I'm thinking clothespin bags for the shop in time for spring, and won't this fabric be cute as well?
A huge thank you for all the comments on the countertop. I have passed them along to Mike, who deserves all the credit for this project. And I promise to post some more details for those of you who had questions.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

    Wouldn't the laundry fabric make a lovely clothespin apron?

  29. Deb,
    Love the rose fabric. Seeing it stirred a memory of rose sheets I had in high school. I put them away and saved them because I loved them so much. I unpacked them yesterday. They are vintage now, ready to be repurposed. Thanks for sharing. Also thanks for commenting on my post.
