In my kitchen, there is a little corner where this sideboard sits. It is my #favorite corner. Inside are a multitude of tablecloths, napkins, miniature spoons and napkin rings. Above the sideboard is one of my favorite oil paintings, which I painted several years ago.
I love flowers! The daffodils are fresh from my garden. One of my passions is photographing the flowers in my garden. Spring is here and my flowers are beginning a beautiful profusion of blooms. For the next several months, each morning will be another exercise in trying to capture the beauty of these flowers.
The table runner is an example of candlewicking, which is a type of whitework embroidery, traditionally sewn with unbleached thread on unbleached muslin. I made this myself in the 1980’s. It is still one of my favorite runners.
Because I am in the kitchen so much, I try to have something pretty displayed on the sideboard. Even in the dead of winter, I have those beautiful tulips to remind me of spring.
