What Are The Chances?

Remember the retro red-and-white display I showed you earlier in the week? Here's what it looked like then:

Kitchen display

The rooster egg plate and most of the Fire King Primrose dinner has already sold, so I needed to tweak and add some things to the display. I have a selection of old LIFE magazines from the 1940s, so I started flipping through them trying to find a cover that would fit into the display. And you won't believe what I found! Check this out:

LIFE magazine

Notice the picnic tablecloth and the napkin in her lap? It's the very same fabric that I covered the table with! What are the chances that I'd happen to have a magazine that featured THAT particular fabric on the cover? So I had to pull the magazine out for the display, and added a few more things. Here's what it looks like now:

And here's where I tucked the magazine:

Just for fun, does anyone recognize the pretty girl on the cover? You old movie buffs should recognize her right Mom did!
