back to the bakery...

Remember this beautiful sign I got from Paula's Etsy shop, Castle & Cottage...
I thought some of my Mom's milk glass plates might look nice underneath but was afraid to commit... This weekend while working at the shop a customer bought the sweetest little plate... I was thinking as I wrapped it to go how lovely it is and can't believe I didn't spy it first! I quickly went over to the booth where it came from and believe it or not there was another one! So yesterday I looked for the perfect place for it to nest and look where it ended up...


I think it was meant to be! I read a lovely blog post the other day about rhubarb being the name of a color...somewhere in between pink and red. I can't believe I didn't bookmark the blog, it was so fabulous!! Well I am going to call the border flowers on this plate not pink, not red but rhubarb! Now I would just like to find the perfect little treasure to hang above my framed scrapbook paper... I would also like to find some lighter curtains for spring and summer to replace these that my Mom made...
While the pattern is full of soft roses the fabric is a bit heavy looking. Maybe I will find some when I finally get to Ikea to get another pair of drapes for my den.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I am joining in on the fun over at Metamorphosis Monday hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch for the first time. Please take a few minutes to check out all the wonderful before and afters...have fun!!

that looks very sweet! And I love the chalkboard too! When I used to be a part of a brick and mortar store I was always buying from the other booths....bad but so much fun. xo Have a super great week.

Your new rhubarb colored plate is beautiful and it looks lovely next to your mother's milk glass plates! I love the sign too!

I read that post about the color rhubarb too and can't remember for the life of me who did it!

Your sign is beautiful and it looks great with the plates under it. Thank you for visiting my blog and I was so excited about my giveaway win the other day, I'm waiting for its arrival before I blog about it:) I loooove your Etsy shop and I have my eye on something that I'm praying doesn't sell before I've saved up for it!

Such a beautiful vignette you have created! I recently was a lucky winner of one of Paula's signs and am so in love with her work. Yours looks absolutely perfect against that beautifully colored wall with those sweet plates! Rhubarb ~ such an awesome color name!
