polka dots + flowers = spring
This morning I needed to stop by Target for some basics like oatmeal and a green shirt for my oldest son to wear tomorrow for St. Patrick's Day. Somehow it turned into one of those trance-like wanderings throughout the entire store. Ever have that happen?
At just 99 cents each, how could I resist these small polka-dotted plates? I couldn't.
I knew they would mix nicely with pieces I already have (some also from Target a few years ago).
And besides, it's the first sunny day in the Ocean State since last week.
I even wandered over to the jewelry section where I spied these pretty earrings
which will go nicely with this dress, which when paired with a cardigan and flats should be very Kathleen Kelly, right girlies?
Last night I embroidered two more squares.
I watched a how-to video and I look forward to attempting new stitches!
Dear blog friends, thank you so much for your encouragement on this new craft for me. I am finding it very enjoyable -- kind of like drawing with thread -- and at 35 cents for embroidery floss, it's a pretty low-risk craft venture. Give it a try!
I think this post just helped me decide on the white with red polka dots oilcloth!
