Working With Purples

The other day, I put my new vintage canning jars to use.
So many lilacs are blooming in our yard, I had to bring some inside to enjoy too.
Aahh, the scent is one of my favorites for sure!
I have the jars placed on our mantel. I'll keep 'em there for awhile filled with flowers from our yard - now, I can't wait for my roses to bloom!
I've been loving the color purple this week. Maybe it had something to do with creating this baby blanket....

It sure was fun playing with chenille again, it's been too long!

OH, how pretty! I love that color of chenille. I love purple anyway. My lilacs are just buds. Of course, there's snow on the ground here. Sigh.
