If you like red and white spotted designs as much as I do, then I'm hoping you will enjoy this post! I think it began for me with children's books and the illustrations of red and white spotted toadstools that were frequently included then. I loved them - in some illustrations the little spotted toadstools had tiny ladders propped up against them and the animals - or sometimes pixies - in the stories climbed up and lived in them! They had little windows and doors! As a little girl I longed to climb the ladder and see inside a Toadstool House.
I made a red and white spotty seat cover to go on this chair, which came from my husband's great grandmother's house years ago and has been painted by me several times, and several colours. Now it's a cool white to match the New Bedroom.
And here are some more cute little red and white spotty toadstools - they were all packaged up together in cellophane in a garden shop - and I had to have them. What are they for? I don't know yet, but I'll think of something...Some day they will be just the very thing I need...x
