PURPLE AT THE COTTAGE COLORS PARTY!





I'm joining the Etsy Cottage Style "Cottage Colors Party" this month with their featured color Purple! As many of you know, my half-bath is painted purple and has lots of vintage goodies in it! Enjoy your visit and don't forget to wash your hands on the way out!

Starting with the top of the small hutch I'll mention the wallpaper border. The purple Wisteria is what influenced my choice of paint for the room. I'm so in love with these tea cups, especially the big Breakfast Cup in the middle!

This plate is one of a matching set. The other is to the left of the window.


Yellow primroses with the violets!






Thanks for stopping by! And don't forget to visit the Cottage Colors Party!

Purple? Purple, really? I bet red feels so cheated this week. Red should hire a personal private eye to see what is really going on here.

How wonderful!!!! That last tin with the pansies knocked my socks off! So vintage, it really brought my grandma to my mind! :)
I love how you have rooms with different color palettes!

I'm so jealous! I love your bath. I've been trying to pick a color for my bedroom walls...purple was at my top, but thought it would be a little over the top. But your bath looks fab!!
Periwinkle seems to be moving up my list. All your purple lovelies are gorgeous!

I don't have a lot of purple. It is my oldest daughters fav color so most anything I find in purple goes to her. Love that little pitcher.

How fun! My granddaughter especially LOVES purples. She'll get a kick out of hearing about this. And what lovely purples you have! I especially loved the purple floral pitcher - are those pansy flowers? They are SOOO pretty. I also loved the sweetly purple floral plates. Thank you for a delightful purple visit. :)

Oh I love purple, thanks for all the eye candy (including the Longaberger wrought iron rack and hanging baskets I spotted)!
