Lavender, Pink, & Purple
















Getting my tablescape ready for Thursday and thought you might like to have a little peek. Stay tuned! I've used some lavenders and purples because I have purple campanulas in the house and tend to post from what's at hand. My gardening friends will be happy to know that I learned that campanula is Latin for little bell, and that the flower's common name is bell flower. I had to dig even deeper to find the coordinating dishes! Not a color that I commonly use.

Happy Tuesday!

Jacqueline

Looking like spring on your table already.
Good on you learning the Latin and common name of a plant. The L names can be difficult to pronounce at times.

I love your transferware plate Jacqueline. I don't have any purple because I can't find any...Boo Hoo.
I'm going to NC. in April to scout the antique malls. Maybe I'll find some there.

I can hardly it! I want to know more about the floral accent plate. It's gorgeous. The flour de lis trim on the edge reminds me of some Spode designs and some Royal Worcester designs that I've seen. Thanks for the peak. I'll be back! Cherry Kay
