...hello dear readers
I'm so happy you have come to visit today!!
Would you like to see
what I have been working on this week?
I've been working on my Easter table...
I made a lovely, ruffle tablecloth from a vintage linen tablecloth ~
I have been collecting beautiful, heavy ones,
preferably with roses on them,
after making my choice for the base,
I then sewed miles
of ruffles around and around!!
(did I mention there were miles of ruffles?)
doesn't it look like a beautiful dress?!
and it fits my oval, pedestal table perfectly
my theme this year are white and periwinkle wild violets
lambs and crosses.
here is a little corner embellishment on my ruffled cloth...
they are vintage velvet violets, tied up with diaphanous silk ribbons
in luscious colors.
they were what I had left over
from my table centerpiece
here are the napkin rings I've settled on...
I used a pearl napkin ring and added a satin rosette and rhinestone sprigs
as I like a little sparkle!
I rather fancy how they turned out, don't you??
I think they will match my ruffley white plates very nicely.
and now dear ones...
here is the
piece de la resistaunce centerpiece
I'd like to present to you
~ lambie ~
I've been working on him for a month
and now he is complete.
I am in love...
he is made out of a topiary frame that I found - here
and the most perfect rosette trim from - here
as are the vintage velvet violets.
I just knew when I saw these rosettes
that they were perfect
as they look like swirly, curly baby lamb fur to me
I first tried to swath my lambie in vintage lace
lambie quickly let me know that
a. he was a he
b. no lace!!
his exact word to me were - "baaahhah, no!!"
see his crown?
there are those violets!!
I made him a crown of them and twisted some of my pearl adorned wire,
added more lovely silk ribbon
I also gave him little eyelashes
he is smiling at you!
he is even cute from the back :)
can you believe that this:
now looks like this:
see lovely lambie?
see lovely lambie smile?
smile, lovely lambie -
and hopefully you are smiling too!
I'll be sharing this post with:

I'll be back to show you my lambie cookies and tabletop
so come back and visit again.
here's to Easter pretties to enrich happy moments!
