Anyway, a few months ago, I found this Bordallo Pinheiro beet vase in a flea-tique mall. I wasn't going to buy it, because I didn't think I had anything it would work with. Hubby actually talked me into getting it.
Because it's so unusual, I couldn't decide what flowers to put in it. Then, I realized we had mums out in the yard that were about the same color.
Believe it or not, last week, I was in TJMaxx...again...and saw this Bordallo platter. Yay...same color!
Looking around the house, I remembered my red transferware...
...and I lucked out, because even the stripes on the napkins are a dark red.
I've never used this shade of red much, but now, I think I'm beginning to like it more and more...whatever it's called.
What do you think? Beet? Plum? Bordallo Burgundy? :)
Sorry I haven't been blogging much lately, but my old faithful computer has finally refused to work, so I'm trying to "get the hang" of photo uploading, editing, etc. on my laptop. When I bought my laptop, I didn't realize it didn't have a little slot for my camera card, and I had to buy a thingy to put the card in, and then plug into the usb port. This probably isn't a big deal for most of you, but my computer skills are really basic. :) You can stop laughing now. :)
Anyway, enough of my whining. My computer "challenge" is a trivial thing when so many people are in desperate situations in the aftermath of Sandy.
Hugs and prayers for all, and thanks for your prayers for our son and his family, who live near Atlantic City. They were so fortunate that they didn't have any serious damage, or long term power outage.
