Colour Fun

Oh, so much fun with colour around my house lately:

Butterfly pillows from Bombay tie my bedroom colour scheme together Dawne Design.

I’ve been decorating with colourful flowers & butterflies & fairies & real-life elves:

For my bedside tables, I filled matching turquoise vases with fresh flowers & added sweet bird cage tea lights with feathery butterflies.

My little haven is quite romantic at night.

I switched a bit of my glass collection around — added fresh flowers in a mug, a strawberry plant in a $5 bucket planter from Michaels, & a little votive butterfly bucket.

With a wonderful photo of my grand-daughter, taken by daughter-in-law [great talent, eh?], I created this in Photoshop using graphics from ScrapGirls.  I have a frame waiting . . .

And nature has been providing it’s own gorgeous colour all around me:

My CityScape window [far left] peeks out from flowering trees & rhododendron bushes.

The front entrance garden is alive with blooming tulips & greenery from fennel, thyme, & various flowers that’ll bloom in the coming months.

The window box seeds have grown magnificently — can’t wait to see them bloom!

In the meantime, the Red Sedum in one of the glass planters grows much higher than ‘ground cover’!  Hmm, I thought it would drape over the edges, not stand straight & tall like little soldiers — ah, the joys of gardening.  😆

Out back, life sprouts again this year in the stumps of the massive 80-100 yr-old cedars the landlord had removed last year.

I haven’t seen this lovely purple flower anywhere else on the property — anyone know what its name is?

And, of course, I add my own stunning colour with ongoing stained glass projects:

Work progresses on my 2nd commission — ‘Flower Power’.  I’ll be delivering it to the client next week.

Can you tell I love colour?

It fills me with joy & peace.

No monochromatic colour schemes for me, no siree  😆

How about you?

What colours do you love?

What colours surround you?

What feelings do they evoke?
