Colourful Friday–Red & Green

Don’t you love it when you sit there racking your brains & the answer is right under your nose. Red & green, red & green, what will I put????? Then I glanced over at the dressing table & there it is, the absolutely gorgeous duchess set I bought at an antique shop, a couple of weeks ago.

Isn’t it just yummy???

If you look closely you will see dirty splodges on 2 of them. No they weren’t there when I bought them, here’s the culprit.

Zaphod, he thought he’d make a cute ornament.

I think nature was having a laugh when they made this little boy black & white. Black yes, would have been perfect, but white???? Of all the cats I’ve had over the years he is the grubbiest of the lot!!! A close 2nd was Tabatha who loved to take dust baths & would start out grey & turn brown.

Hi Jan, is that Zaphod up to mischief again? Love your strawberries! Yes, like you I had trouble with red & green together...almost didn't make it to the challenge!

Hello Jan,

Love your duchess set. Zaphod looks very comfortable there.
happy days.

This is a lovely set and the colourings are so rich. How did the cat know this was the one you wanted?

Zaphod has good taste in seating arrangements :)

A lovely buy, very nice..and Zaphod would fit in with the grubby cats here!
