Flirting With The Tropics


Flirting with the idea of going Up, Up and Away to the tropics!
Enough with the wet, cold, foggy, rainy ....... U is for Up, Up and Away ...

This vintage tablecloth holds the colors of the tropics and perhaps the
addition of some tropical fruits and some jerked chicken will have to
satisfy me for today. More details on the elements at the end of this post.

  14. Quick!

    Your shoelace is untied.

    What condiment server?

    Of course, I didn't snatch it when you were checking your shoe lace.

    Would I do such a thing to one of my favorite tablescapers ever?

    Seriously.

    No, I am just very lumpy. It's lumpy fat. That is NOT your condiment server under my shirt.

    Sigh.

    Thanks for another envy inducing link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter 'U'.

    Loved this!

  22. What flair you show today. I can't pick a favorite element because I like it all. I think I have figured out that you like vintage linens.
