I have been thinking alot about purple lately. I just love that color. Deep, dark grape purple just sends me.
Maybe it was the pairing of purple with Halloween decorations that got me in the mood, I don't know. But I came home from work the other day and decided, just like that, we were going to have a purple powder room!

This is an arrangement of silk hydrangeas, and beaded "peacock" feathers I put in a glass tile purple and turquiose vase and set on the back of the toilet. When I use a toilet seat cover for extra color I always put them on the front of the seat. I don't know about your house, but it is a cinch no one here will put the lid down so that the color will show!

I painted the oil painting of lilacs myself, more years ago than I care to remember, and I always kept it because of the purple color, with beautiful lime green. The basket has a lovely purple ruffle pillow with a smaller off white roll pillow with a really nifty Mardis Gras mask perched in between. I hung a turq lantern for a tea light and left my old granite ware pitcher. I still want a clock by the lantern and the perfect frame hung with purple satin ribbon on this side of my painting.

I hope you enjoyed my purple moment! I will give you the updated photos, as I find the finishing accessories!
Hugs and confidence,
