Aqua and red
Alex and I have been looking for a set of bowls to go with the rest of our dinnerware for almost a year, and we finally found some last night.
For my 30th birthday last May, he gave me a set of vintage hand-painted Red Wing dinnerware (click here for the whole story). The set was in perfect condition and included everything except bowls.
We’d been using our old green bowls that absolutely do not match the rest of the set. That was until we found our new bowls last night.
We didn’t have the plates with us to compare the blues. Instead, we went with our gut, and it ended up being a frighteningly perfect match, right down to the hand-painted look.
Our apartment is filled with light aquas and reds.
I’m almost always immediately attracted to those colors and I think they look great together.
That red quilt has gotten a lot of use over the years, and it’s got the frayed edges and cat hair to prove it. I made it with several different types of fabric, including velvet and sateen, which gave the quilt texture but also caused some of the seams to fray and separate in the wash.
I’m not feeling well today and am having trouble keeping my eyes open. I think it may be time for a nap under that red quilt.
