Wreath Dilemma

This year I have been purchasing
 flowers and fabric in shades of purple.
You are probably wanting to ask.
How can purple be a prim color Janice?
By putting different shades of purple together with the right combinations,
it will work as a prim color if you choose to.
Like this wreath with natural pods, white mums and purple asters.
I recently purchased this fall wreath for my kitchen.
But now where to place it?
Don't think it fits here in this chair.
I don't have much wall space in this room.
Or doors to hang it on for that matter.
Not sure if I liked it on my blue cupboard.
Too big for this door.
Then I got to thinking....
I took out my nifty rapid washing machine plunger out of the laundry room.
It has this handle on it.
I used one in our store similar to this for the same thing.
Instant wreath holder!
The purple compliments the yellow brick of our fireplace
and fits perfectly into this corner of my kitchen
between my churn and cupboard.
So next time you are thinking about the color purple...
I say go for it!
Purple shades of mums and asters go perfectly with oranges and yellows.
Oh and then Halloween is coming up.
What a perfect way to add some pop to your orange and black
The color that can can be prim if you choose.
Purplish Prim Blessings to all

  3. Hello Janice, well now, that is so prim perfect for a wreath hanger, great idea. Purple looks wonderful with orange and black,bring it on, Yey Fall!!!!!! Blessings Francine.

  4. I love the color purple, I always buy purple flowers to plant every year! The wreath looks great on the plunger! I never would have thought to do that!

  5. I love it!! The wreath holder is a great idea!!

  6. Love the wreath and what a clever idea for a holder!

  7. Yes, purple can be prim. The muted tones are options. Your wreath is beautiful. Remember, purple has long been the color associated with royalty. The animal the dye comes from was difficult to obtain centuries ago.

  8. This is beautiful and a pretty shade of lavender! Love your idea for the holder, too! Enjoy your day!
