Spring Fever

This spring the color lavender is really speaking to me.  Especially when the color is a soft grayish hue.  I decided to dye some ribbons and doilies to satisfy my lavender craving.
These ribbons used to be white and after some Rit dye they now look like this:

I love how they look wrapped around my decoupaged Easter eggs and vintage spools:

The doilies in this basket got the same treatment.  They turned out a bit darker, since their original color was more beige:

I'm enjoying seeing these soothing colors in my living room, along with more spring touches sprucing up all the whites:

The daybed corner has some cheerful spring elements...


It's a romantic place to sit, under this lovely image of Little Madonna.  I did end up painting her frame white.

Well, it's quite a relief to look out my window and see all the snow we got Friday has melted quite a bit.  Spring will be here before we know it!

Lavender is such a soft and beautiful color. I actually bought a lavender shirt for the spring and wore it yesterday. I loved it!

Happy Spring!
