Eye spy ... a burst of colour



I am playing along with Cindy's fun new Eye spy ... each weekend. This week's theme has been chosen by Flossy-P and is Eye spy ... a burst of colour.

So here is my burst of colour: to be found in my linen cupboard.

Its a treasured Le Jacquard Fran├žais tablecloth, purchased during an afternoon's shopping in the Marais in Paris. I love the vibrant oranges and pinks in this damask cloth. When hung out to dry on a sunny wash day, the colour is impossibly bright and quite dazzling.

Thanks for hosting "Eye spy" Cindy and for the lovely theme, Flossy. To see more bursts of colour, head over to Cindy's blog Bug and Pop.
