Winnings, foldings, and meetings!

WOOHOO!! Now don’t get me wrong, I look in the mirror every day and tell myself, “Girl, you’re a WINNER!” Somehow it helps me get through the day. But today, I was a winner in another sense: I won part of the fab junk giveaway over at Funky Junk Interiors! I’ll soon be receiving a few of these wonderful “picket tops” from the legendary pallet desk! Can’t wait to have their chunky, faded, woody goodness in hand so I can figure out something fun to do with them!

In other junky news this week, I recently (finally!) joined the cloth napkin club by winning this delightful auction on Ebay – a set of four lively “Vera” napkins with a wonderful butterfly-and-foliage pattern! They are about 15 inches square – this photo doesn’t do justice to the colors, which are bright without being overblown or too neon-ish:

Of course, I opened them up immediately upon receipt and tried out the artichoke napkin fold shown over at Between Naps on the Porch:

Looks lovely, can’t wait to set the table with them!

And finally, I wanted to be sure to mention the delightful lunch I had a couple of weeks ago with Beth from Food As Art! In reading her blog I had discovered that Beth and I have several favorite dinnerware patterns in common, and that she lived close by! We got together for lunch and had a great time chatting about her work, my work, her volunteering efforts (on behalf of animal shelters!), gardening, and of course – thrifting! Beth, it was sheer delight to meet you and I hope we can get together again soon!
