Hi Ho, Hi Ho....It's Off to Work I Go!



This afternoon, while I was home on my lunch hour... my Mom in law brought over these beautiful red cherries .....



Not long ago......I found this French red and white monogrammed tape on Ebay......I went for it because the initials were HO......



......and I already had this European grain sack monogrammed HI........



Put them together and......HI HO, HI HO......it's off to work I go......



Just like the seven dwarfs in Snow White.......
Lunch hours are just too short.....only 60 minutes!



Those bright red cherries inspired me to run about on my lunch hour and pull out a few props to pair them with......






A little girl's sweet vintage dress....



A lively cherry print apron from Anthropologie..........





Cherry Anyone?
Hi Ho, Hi Ho......it's back to work I go!

Hey Laura,
There's just something about cherry fabric I just go crazy for. I have about 5 cherry themed tableclothes...just think their so fun and cheerful. Love your ebay find too!!!

I love this post ~ it reminds me of one of my childrens' favorite games. Hi Ho Cherry-O. We used to play it over and over and over when they were little.

The little shoes with the checked laces and flag is a great photo.

Floss said...

Oh, too wonderful! I haven't been visually inspired by our cherries - mainly just overwhelmed by the culinary possibilities and the tedious job of getting the stones out. But your collection is absolutely fantastic.

I love the wire cloche over the cherries. It looks like something straight out of Jeanne d'Arc Living.

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Just love it, Laura!

I must go downstairs and get some Queen Anne cherries from the refrigerator. I love your "hi ho" theme - just darling. I wouldn't have thought of that in a million years if I saw that ribbon up for bids. Did you get your Jeanne magazine yet? I received mine today ;)

Happy night~
