Sharing a Checkered Past Today
Courtly Check balls
filled a silver bowl,
and Courtly Check
bows were abundant.
I wanted to change things up a bit
a pewter charger anchors this setting.
Layers of red mix between
the black and white checked pieces,
mixed with black and white checks.
Red and white flatware
is from Pottery Barn.
A small square decoupaged plate holds
a Round Top Collection jar of red hot hearts.
This perky little Courtly Check rooster, along with
the CC balls and hearts are the work of my friend and
this key to my heart,
and a little mercury glass.
Checking off the days
till Valentine's Day 2011.
