Meet the Press


Here is the article that ran in the Sunday, December 30 edition of The Daily Sentinel, a Colorado newspaper.   Like the Washington Post article, it took up 3/4 of page 2C.

While I’m here, I wanted to share another piece of one of my china collections that I found recently.  I’m considering an applique quilt based on this 1950’s design. 


It’s made by Taylor Smith Taylor for their Conversation line.  It’s just about impossible to find, even in the higher priced china replacement houses, and rarely on eBay. 

After yesterday’s blog, I got a lot of questions about the “wire” bowl on my dining room table.   It is metal and almost looks like a contemporary leafy lace.  Evan bought this for Jeff last Christmas (Jeff had his eye on it) at Crate and Barrel.  I think we paid $149 but they are having an after Christmas sale and it’s now $119. 


It’s called the Oleander Centerpiece Bowl.  I love it and can easily become “seasonal” by adding giant gourds in the fall, giant ornaments at the holidays, big grapevine balls in the summer, etc.  At least that’s what we do with it.   If you’re interested in taking another look, click here.

    Mark, the colors in the china would be gorgeous in a quilt. How will you find that shade of seafoam green/blue anywhere? Simple piecing and an applique border would translate beautifully.

    Loved the article in the grand Junction Sentiel (Senile as my IL’s call it). Have been to GJ many times and was excited to see the article in their paper. Too bas the Denver papers couldn’t pick it up. She expressed many of my feelings and sentiments, an yes, I was one of the 5,000 who sent in my subscription ASAP.
