Purple Inspiration

13 Oct

Hi Friends

Few weeks ago  I noticed 3 purple vases on the shelf at the flower shop while I was waiting for the florist to make up a bouquet for me.

I have no purple room in my house – not even a hint of purple in any area in my house…… what to do??!!

I could not leave without them. So I got them. All 3 of them ! Why??

Because all I could see in my head was PURPLE, PURPLE, PURPLE !!

Ever since I saw the post Leslie did from  A Creative Mint. She inspires you like nobody else can when it comes to colour and colour combinations.

Leslie does a monthly post called “Color me Pretty” on decor8 and on September, 27th she did one which she called “Purple Hues”….

…which leads you to Holly Becker’s blog at  decor8.

This is just a few of the pictures she did, so it is really worth checking it out yourself !

I just love these vases right now….so I decided to use them as table decoration for the neighborhood luncheon I am hosting this month.

I have started setting the table and this is how far I’ve gotten.

I hope you had time to go check out Leslie’s blog…

….and that you too just absolutely LOVE the AMAZING colour inspirations that comes from her?

It absolutely lifts your spirit on any given day and is worth checking when in need (or not in need) of colour inspiration. You will never regret.

Tell me what you think!

      Esra – we missed you soooo much at the luncheon ! And you would have fitted in perfectly with that purple skirt of yours that I like so much !

      Would actually like to dedicate a post to that ” I see green”- was going to ask you if that’s ok! We can discuss.
