For years now the violets at my mum and dad's house have flowered at easter. Thinking to myself I haven't noticed any flowering yet, I slipped out to our garden have a look and see.
I'm so glad I did, there were two vibrant yet unassuming little faces there which I would have completely missed as I went about my day. I actually sat down and spent a moment or two admiring their colour and intensity. It was a lovely few moments. The world stopped.
This little cloth embroidered with tiny violets was purchased from our local op-shop and I feel quite inspired to make a little something from it today. Perhaps a tiny skirt for our little girl's doll, or a wee coin purse or a feature yoke on a wool coat?
Linking up with The Op Shop Showoff, The Nifty Thrifty, Coastal Charm, Magpie Monday We Call it Junkin and Sirthiftalot.
These photos taken a while ago, not the same two fresh violets :)
