1st Assignment -- Ivory

I was very anxious to receive my first assignment for the Creativity Boot Camp. Ivory. What can you do with ivory.  My first thought was to read the definition from the dictionary, just in case there is some hidden meaning to the word that might help me. My husband and I set off for breakfast and then the flea market. A typical Sunday for us. As we wandered past the stalls my mind was on Ivory. Nothing. No elephants, no rhinos, no walruses nor their tusks. As we headed home I asked my husband to stop by TJMaxx to look for a new outfit. I can't go in those stores without circling the entire store. I love housewares, bedding and linen, shoes, purses, childrens--ok, I can forgo the men's department. As I walked through the glassware I spied this beautiful Ivory cake stand. And I just happen to collect cake stands. I had to have this.
What could I do with an ivory cake stand? Hmmmm. What I wanted to do, but did not have the time was make a tower of cookies (ivory colored) and have my own little ivory tower of cookies on my ivory cake stand. But I have a date with my husband--it's our anniversary-- and there wasn't enough time. So I took out an ivory table cloth, put my ivory cake stand on it and snapped away.

This is a very pretty photo. It definitely conveys the feel of "ivory".

Very classy and chic. I have a hand-made cake platter almost identical. Pretty...

I love this photo :) So simple and soft and I can just imagine the ivory colored baked goods on top of it.
Happy anniversary to you and your husband and thank you for all your kind comments :)
