Periwinkle Blue "Blooms"


While perusing a consignment shop recently, I found the perfect gift for a friend's April birthday.


While getting ready to pay for it, I came across some periwinkle blooms that were just lovely.

They even have a couple of resident, permanent butterflies!


I truly am attracted by anything the color periwinkle blue.

Even the way it sounds is delightful, isn't it?



It just kind of tumbles off one's tongue and is full of whimsy.....periwinkle, periwinkle, periwinkle.

So guess what?  I bought myself a present, too!  ha!  Four bouquets of periwinkle colored faux flowers!


Now I have them in a lovely teapot on the kitchen table.

Usually, fake flowers don't do too much for me but periwinkle blue ones are another story!

DO YOU EVER BUY PRESENTS FOR YOURSELF?

Absolutely...I love buying a few little things that will be special to me. And I love silk flowers. Yours are beautiful and the sweet butterfly makes it even better! Enjoy your week! Hugs, Diane

That blue is so pretty! I do enjoy treating myself to little treasures now and then!

The teapot with the flowers is sweet. I used to have a periwinkle suit hen I was younger and it was a favorite to be sure. A beautiful color indeed.

My mother was married in periwinkle blue so I know exactly what color that is and I love it - goes pretty with blue cobalt vases - lol.

Yes, I do buy myself little "presents" from time to time. I especially like to treat myself to flowers. Just this morning I drove out to Whitney's Farm Stand and bought some beautiful pink and purple pansies and white and blue Johnny Jump Ups. Can't wait to plant them in the window boxes.

The periwinkle faux flowers are so pretty along with the vase and tablecloth; nice combination.

Very pretty Susan! I can't believe you bought something that wasn't PINK..ha ha ha. I don't get myself much at all although I probably should. I just like to buy for others. I need some faux flowers in my house as every real thing I plant dies. Just don't have a green thumb. Have a great day.

"Buying a present for yourself," not to be confused with just buying something, is a wonderful thing to do from time to time. One of the times I bought a present for myself was when my mother died. I returned home from caring for her and "seeing her out" and went to our favorite china shop we used to enjoy before she and my dad moved away for retirement. There I bought six Blue Danube snack sets, which always make me think of her when I use them; we both loved blue and white china.
