look at the watery silky swirls of pattern and the riotous use of colours
this scarf is very versatile
and can be worn folded and draped in a variety of ways
to show off different aspects of the pattern.
and expose and focus on different colours.
I wear this scarf when I need a spring tonic...
I seek a shot of colour every now and again
and I adore items with texture
texture and weave
Textures inside the Bungalow
a silver picture frame
a woven lamp base
organic browns in a pottery jug
no more humdrum shades
let's bring on the brights
such a delight
bunches and punches of colour
in a simple vase
heavy frosted glass vase
(garage sale find)
The language of flowers...
Red tulips symbolize love,
yellow tulips... cheer
varigated tulips...beautiful eyes
simplicity of form
Visit a local flower market
see if there are any blooms that beg to be bought
If you are fortunate enough to have a flowering quince like Janet
you can ignore all this tulip talk
go outside with your secateurs and snip snip snip...
almost any flowering tree branches can be cut and brought indoors to "force" blooms
