Sue on 3:10 PM CDT said...

I love how bright & cheerful a lot of you are making this set look. The colours you are choosing & the pretty accents, they make me wish I was over there with you as spring approaches rather than here where we have our autumn splendour. But then again, I'm now stating to see this set with some autumn colours... so, that you've used Deb, with your orange, yellow & red, perfect.
