Old, New and Homemade

A collection of old, new and homemade.
An old door and table, some new containers and one homemade little container for the smallest flower arrangement.

I gathered together a flowering plant in a pot as well as some cut flowers all in similar colours.
Some times it works better with just one kind of flower in each container rather then a mixed arrangement. 
If you choose containers of different heights they will work together as a whole.

I mixed some gorgeous stock with purple Alliums and Campanula. 

The smallest container or vase is homemade from an old tin.
I decorated it with some of my favorite purple and grey washi tape. 
I used four different tapes in two different widths.
In the middle I used the tape side by side and at the top and bottom of the tin I put a narrow tape on top of a wider one. 

Have a Happy Purple Day!
xoxo Ingrid

Lila är en av mina absoluta favoritfärger. Så fint du gjort med arrangemanget. Du har helt rätt i att det blir kul och vackrt att blanda olika sorters vaser i en liten grupp. Jag känner riktigt doften av lövkojorna... mmm....

Kram Charlotte

I love your purple day! There is something so beautiful when you pull all the right textures and shades of purple like you have done in your post! I really like the background with the chippy white-washed paint. Really beautiful Ingrid!!! So is tomorrow a big day around your neck of the woods? :)
Have a great weekend,
