The "X" Factor

6.30.2010

It is time for Alphabet Thursday again in Miss Jenny's class and this week is a little harder with the letter "X".
 I kept trying to figure out what I could post about that uses the letter "X". When I did yesterday's post with the white bowl I realized that the pattern on it had lots of x's forming the design. So then I started looking around my house and this is what I saw.



this lantern


this pineapple lamp


this headboard


umbrella stand





plant stand


holding ferns


trellis


trim on my lampshade


fabric pattern


on my dining room chairs


cane seat and back


on my bench


this netting in my beachy arrangement 


and the other white bowl


that is now in my bedroom.

So take a look around your house and see where the "X" in design is. I was surprised at how many places there were.

Y'all come back now,
KIM

  50. Very clever. Since there is a shortage of real X-words, I think it is alright to look at what has an X-design!
