French Farmhouse

Hi Everyone~

My friend Melody has a blog called Brown Gingham Creations. Imagine my surprise this weekend when I was at an antique mall and saw a brown gingham tablecloth--I just knew I had to get it for her as a surprise!

In keeping with French Farmhouse decor, I made 2 tags and wanted to include one with a rooster. (Graphics are from The Graphics Fairy.)

A clothespin adorned with French writing...

and voila! her tablecloth is ready to send in the mail!

I hope you're all having a wonderful week~

Such a lovely, thoughtful gift! My summer holiday has officially begun and I am oh so happy. Hope to get many projects done. At least that's the plan over the next 2 months. :) Have a great week. Tammy

Rebecca said... MUST show before and after pics of your weight loss. I'm pretty shy about showing my BOD, :(, but anyone can see the weight loss I've had in my face. I'm excited to see yours and sooo happy for you!

Hi Cindy. How wonderfully generous of you to pick out such a perfect gift for your friend! I also love the idea of making tags and items to make the gift look even more special.

Wishing you a Happy Parish Day! .....Angie

You are such a dear , sweet person.

Drop by, the bear's are having our anniversary giveaway and I think it's something that you would like. And there MAY be a wee little "treasure" stowed away inside. Maybe - come on over.....


Melody said...

Oh Cindy,
Your thoughtfulness and kindness is what makes your friendship a true treasure.
I know I've not mentioned this, but I've been looking for a brown gingham tablecloth forever and the tag with the clothespin..LOL...I'm doing a 3-d border in my laundry room using clothesline with vintage doll clothes and paperdoll clothes hanging on the line. This will go perfectly!
Thank you seems so small.
