Ever since my trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake this summer I’m loving lavender. In fact, all shades of purple. I love lilac blossoms and violet flowers. This is not really a new love, but rather an old love rekindled. As a child and in my teens, mauve was my favourite colour.
The Lavender Boutique was a feast for the eyes, the heavenly fragrance filled the air! It’s impossible to express with words the emotion it evokes in my heart! The colour and scent brought back delightful memories. I even started singing the song, Lavender blue, dilly dilly, lavender green in my mind. It was a nostalgic moment; I enjoyed my little journey into the secret corners of my mind while I lingered in the shop.

This photo reminds me of a Claude Monet painting: soft, blended colours, dreamy and surreal. How fitting that this is in the English country garden of Canadian impressionist painter Angie Strauss.
I inherited this lovely skirt from a dear friend of mine who passed away several years ago. Janet was the one who introduced me to Niagara-on-the Lake. I had never been there before and she raved about it. She had a talent for home decor and was always in style with a fabulous wardrobe of romantic outfits.
