HE Japanese embroidered fcimo no has long been accepted as evi
dence of good taste fin lingerie circles, but it remains for a short
negligee treated with Japanese trimming to make a slight commotion
: where novelty is always welcomed. This delightful garment is of crepe
de chine, the edges scalloped and exquisitely faced with a contrasting
JBilk. The embroidery is in the familiar flat, fllled-in effect in a beautiful

' - THE CAMOUFLAGED KITCHEN
rsi ;. , TABLE.
: Just the ordinary unpainted kitch
' V en) ironing table, the kind with the
top held in place by four-wooden pegs
and a box effect underneath to hold
n't' things, can be transformed into a
very attractive piece of furniture,
? You know how difficult it is . to de-
-clde what to put in the hall to take
, ; 4 faway that bare look. Why not use
-'an ironing table black walnut stain-
'-., 'f V'ed, ornamented , with very large brass j
headed upholsterers nails driven at
. two or three-inch Intervals and the
' I top opened back against the wall? It
f.will make a stunning hall bench,- and
- f no' one could gues.s that it had ever
been a humble ironing table of the
v . : $2 or $3 variety. Incidentally, the
: seat may be used to hold odds and
: ?; ends.
:S In a particularly attractive bed
: room the other day a visitor noticed
the table, which- was of an-unusual
design, with the top covered with
V; cretonne to match the window
,. "Where did you get that pretty
; little table? I would like; to get one
like it if you don't mind," remarked
. the Clever Girl's friend. And she
; : was almost incredulous when the girl
'told her that it was a plain garden
v'. . variety ironing table, ivory enamelled
'and the cretonne tacked on.
Painted green or grey, with. some
'brightly colored flowers stenciled in
some conventional design, it will
, make just the right center of attrac-
tion for your porch. Again, the "seat
may be used to' hold magazines.
