It's all about the color purple/mauve

Hello everyone,

I have decided to do some different themes
on my blog for awhile.
I ahve been blogging for a long time
so even though these photos may
have been on before over the years
I am sure they are new to many of you.
So today, it is all about the color mauve/

The above photo was one that I took before
a garden tea.
The bed does not stay in the garden
terrace as it is not covered by
anything except virginia creeper.

It did make for a pretty photos hoot though.

I love the vintage quilt on the bed.

My old vintage chaise is a comfy
spot for a glass of lemonade in

I love these old mauve and white
transferware pieces.


Our porch with the old iron bed is
a great place to relax with a book.

Who doesn't love a bouquet of lilacs.

Mauve lilacs in our garden.

I love these Maritime Rose dishes.

I may have included too many lilacs
shots but I do love them.

A delicate teapot and cup and saucer
with a  pretty mauve clematis.

This old quilt has really made the rounds in our
garden. Love the purple Jackmani superbra Clematis.

My garden hat gets trimmed with lilacs

Lilacs and transferware.

I hope you like the theme idea for
the quiet months of winter. I have
well over a hundred thousand
photos on my computer to choose
from so hopefully I don't bore

Once again I want to mention that
you can subscribe to my blog if
you want to get an email when I
post. The button is on my sidebar
at the top right.
Thank you to all who have followed me
over my many years of blogging.

Take care,

Such a lovely post, Carolyn. I love lilacs,too,and your photos are just beautiful. I own blue, green, and red transferware but have never found any purple in my thrifting travels. It's so pretty I'll have to look with more determination!
