What Do YOU Think?


About this design:

For this show, and the one on the 4th of July weekend (3 day), I thought I would mix it up a bit. Since I use two tables, I will replace one of the cloths with a navy blue one and I found this carpet for 4 bucks. I thought I would put it in the center of the tablecloth and have all my patriotic stuff on this table. I have some red/white/blue silk flowers, etc that will also be on the table. What do you all think? Is it too much? The other table will be my regular set up with all the regular jewelry. Honest opinions, please!

    The table looks so cute- I cant tell it is carpet from the picture! :D

    This is actually my back deck table. The one for the show is the regular 6′ folding table that everyone in the world uses. The carpet is from K-Mart and I guess is the kind you use in front of your sink – kind of like a berber.

    Hi Linda! You have really been beading away. I love your red/white/blue theme. Fantastic job by the way. Go USA!

    Looks great everyone loves to celebrate, maybe you can even re-sell the rug also if you don’t decide to keep it. Just a thought because sometimes people ask if other things are for sale also.
