A Centerpiece with Memories – Floral Friday

Blue and White accessories and the color scheme of blue and white

in home interiors has always been a classic.

I remember back in the 70’s, I decorated with lots of blue, white and yellow.

I guess you can say that I was in my country phase of gingham and ruffles.

When I was a very young homemaker and stay at home mom, I was constantly sewing.

Whether it be my clothes, or things for the house. I even took a class with

my friend Ruth and we learned how to make t-shirts with the crew necks!

Today,  I am going down memory lane a bit.
