I'm Such A Copycat

I saw this flower bucket re-furb at All Things Related using graphics
downloaded from Kristine Mckay Designs and remembered some French
flower buckets out in my garden shed.

One was pastel yellow, one pastel blue from Michael's years ago,
another was a nice heavy weight authentic galvenized bucket. Some spray
paint, clear sealer and some glaze gave my mis-matched flower buckets
a whole new lease on life.

I printed out the graphics onto scrapbook paper, sprayed with clear sealer, glued down with instant decoupage, let dry, then glazed with a water based glaze from Lowe's.  When completely dry all the buckets were sealed with a couple coats of clear sealer.

So my group of mismatched, unloved flower buckets are now destined for
center stage holding roses from my garden this summer.

I've had this California Hand Prints tablecloth on my "wish list" for a very long time. I just recently snapped this up for a fraction of what they normally bring, and I'm so pleased with its almost pristine condition! It was a true thrifty buy!

Alphabe-Thursday at Jenny Matlock where today's letter is "Y" - YOU are just going to have to indulge me as I waffle a little bit on this week's letter.  Stretching it a bit, but YOU are sure to understand that YOU are what makes The Little Round Table chug along. YOU are my readers and I thank YOU!

Everything's Coming Up Daisies

After several weeks of monsoon rains here in California, The Little Round Table is again trying to showcase a large dose of Spring.  Vintage white Fiesta from the 1960s with the Hawaiian Daisy sprayed on design is mixed with Turquoise vintage Fiesta on a vintage tablecloth.
More details at the end of this post.

The decoration was only placed on White Fiesta dinner and salad plates, saucers and an oval platter and was meant to be mixed with Turquoise Fiesta items.
