Oh my! The color of the bottles looks amazing! Spring flowers need to make an appearance real soon. Love your photos...

The purple is really something - even prettier and more vivid in this post than the last post you featured them in and I love the flowers - so blousy and feminine :-)

Such a beautiful colour. In my line of work we refer to it as amethyst. Sounds jewel like doesn't it. The posies are pretty too and your photos simply bring them to life...

Oh so very pretty....what great composition. I've been craving some fresh flowers lately (and hinting to the hubs....but no luck). I think I'll have to venture out today and buy myself some. Only wish I had some lovely purple or blue bottle to showcase them in!

Have a wonderful week.

Ohhh.....what a beautiful pictures of the purple bottles. When I was a teenager in the '70 it was the colour of my room, together with orange. Real colours of the 70er years.
Have a nice week dear Laura.

Diane said...

Laura, pretty! I'll bet you have some of the lavender glass too - the kind that turned lavender when exposed to light. I only have 1. They're getting harder to find.

I was flipping through a 2010 Somerset magazine and guess who I saw? You! :-)

Hugs,
Diane

Hi Laura:

You are precious and your blogsite one of my favorites! Love the silver bottle, but WHERE can I buy some of those purple bottles? I loved the flowers you created with them.

Stay warm and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
