Summer Menu

I continue to be inspired by the possibilities of the Liberty fabric covered beads.

While visiting my brother in Michigan we stopped in in to see some dear friends that have a lovely old farm house complete with a barn that is being renovated and beautiful gardens that produce massive amounts of vegetables. We took home the first crop of tiny radishes and a handful of chives. Later we served them with sweet butter on grainy bread and a touch of coarse salt....YUM!

I was admiring the vintage tablecloth that was spread on the kitchen island and my friend and I talked about how we both collected them. I no longer have an outdoor patio or a kitchen table, for that matter, now that I am living in a high rise condo. I offered to keep a look out for any inexpensive gems . Two hours later I found this cloth at a local antique flee market......so with much regret I am passing it on....along with one of my necklaces... these colors are right up her alley.

....my swirly plate is full of possibilities for another braided or charm necklace! I better hurry...summer is nearly half over.
