...a ruffley tablecloth, pretty pearled napkins and lovely lambie!!

...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,
 for years.

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
only ~
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

look ~
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:

so come back and visit again.
