"Love it, will try to make"

I love gem colours, pastel colours and sea blues, greens and choral colours for summer. Whatever summer home decor I'm making whether indoor or outdoor, I tend to colour them in those colours. I've recently learnt how to paint fabric so I'll put that to the test.

I love blue and purple together, so in the summer, I use a lot of light blue and violet colors. These colors with a little green in it make beautiful wreathes and flower arrangements.
