My grandmother had a formica kitchen table with flower designs all over it, just like the ones you see here.
I distinctly remember taking a piece of paper and tracing the flowers. It was so satisfying...easy and yet eye appealing.
Trying to force spring a little, we went to an art store and bought some paper to make into curtains (another post, another day). On the way home, wetting our whistles, we discovered how fun it could be to trace the flowers that showed through.
Everything fell away, as we traced those lines.
