~ Spring Colors ~ laundry line card

I hear spring is coming in America.
And I kind of wish we had our spring here too -- instead of our year-round monsoons and blazing heat.

I do know what spring is, and I love the flowers and everything new that comes with it. And the colors are my favorite.

Something made for my best friend...


... the clothesline and sentiment seem unrelated... most of all for teenagers like me and my bestie, but believe me, they are totally relevant to us and somewhat symbolic :D ... it's a long story so I won't go there.

And then. Well, I love flowers, all kinds and all colors... but roses are my favorite, and any kind in pink. So I love to browse bouquet-photos and save them for color inspiration. And...

I made a card to go with it.... with my very own rose. Rolled from tea-dyed lace trim and tucked with pearls.


And then. One more...

 Something simple, with burlap and a cherub too...

I'm so tired now that I'm almost incoherent. Pardon me and let me skip off to bed..



  1. Lovely and soothing

  2. I'm always inspired when I visit here... such delicate beauty!

  3. Precious cards........and, oh, those colors! They are my favorites. I didn't see if you mentioned what you used for the clothesline, but I would love to know.

  8. So lovely, once again, Viola. Your bits of trim and lace here and there really make everything special. I'm gettin some of my own real soon. Tomorrow is the big 47 for me...the best part of that will be a little birthday crafting cash (and, OF COURSE, the hugs and kisses from my sweet hubby and kids!!!). Some new trims and appliques are at the top of my shopping list! I'll be checking out the etsy store you mentioned a few posts back! Lovely post!!!
