I have always loved Violets, and Pansies. It just says spring and happy days to me. I am redecorating our Family/ Sitting room in pinks and greens, as apposed to the lavender and green that was in there. Not a big change, just need something new to look at as I am stuck inside the house most days with my illness. I hope to have the room done in a few weeks. I thought, Oh No, now where will I put my violets ??? I decided to combine my scattered collection and just stick it all in this sweet shelf that my 70 year old Father in Law made in shop, back in grammar school. This sweet little shelf is 58 years old !! My husband and FIL cringed a bit when I painted it white and shabbied it up a few years ago, you know, Men and their wood !! lol But gosh, I love the little thing and what a waste to sit in our garage all icky and brown and unloved. I even stuck on some sweet vintage rose handles. :) So, my logic won out and I think my FIL is just happy that I am proud of his handiwork and love the little shelf of his. :) Now, where I will put the shelf in the house I have no idea, but it is filled with things I love, and and now is a new home for my violets . :) You can click on the photos for larger views.
