I adore needlepoint
And although most of the needlepoint at Linderhof comes from my hand
I've been known to rescue a straw piece if it's pretty and the price is right.
I also adore "tuffets"
for Little Miss Muffet was a favorite childhood nursery rhyme.
On a just before Christmas trip to a favorite antique mall.
Many booths were having a sale and I spied this wee treasure.
Old needlepoint, iron legs and enough pink roses to look perfect in the master bedroom
And I had a chair there that had no footstool.
And I thought because it was small and round it was a "tuffet"
Someone told me that -- eons ago.
But no, you can see it's feet, so a "tuffet" it's not -- it's a footstool, plain and simple.
But whether it's a tuffet, a footstool, a hassock or an ottoman, it's perfect in front of the chair.
And I can see a "Little Miss Muffet" sitting on it, eating perhaps not curds and whey
but rather a lovely dessert -- a pudding perhaps -- chocolate!
It's Saturday and I'm joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.
For there are pink roses on the "tuffet"
And I'm hosting a giveaway.
Not to celebrate anything
But because I found a "treasure" I wanted to share
A favorite cookbook author, one of my culinary heroes
It's her second book complete with dust jacket.
Just leave a comment and I'll put your name in the drawing.
If you're a follower, I'll add your name twice.
It's The Loaves and Fishes Party Cookbook
(which actually is pink, too!!!)
(I'm not giving up my treasured copy, oh, no, it's one I found that I wanted to share!)
