LOVING LAVENDER!!!

  I adore pin cushion dolls. This is one I ordered recently because of the lavender skirt. I have a Victorian wicker etagere' that displays a collection of different treasures that are in different shades of purples and lavenders. I still dream of owning a huge Victorian house with at least 8 bedrooms. I would certainly decorate one of the bedrooms in lavender!!!

Hi Sherry!

She is sooo adorable! I love lavender too. It's such a soothing color. I like to mix it with that soft lovely silvery green. So glad you found such a pretty one.

Hugs. Sherry

My daughter's favorite color is purple and so we had to paint a room lavender. It is one of my favorite colors too.
An 8 room Victorian. Right now I would guess you could find your little diamond in Eufaula. Lot's of houses for sale. Then we could be neighbors and oh boy the trouble we could get into shopping to decorate your house and mine.
