My mother's favorite colors are pink and white. Growing up she always had pale roses in old milk glass around the house and pretty pieces of lace in her bedroom. Whenever I see these colors and those little intricate flowery details I think of her (and her mum)
She used to tell me that I should dress in only light colors, pinks and whites and creams - and finally it's sunk in!
Today at the flea market there was this wonderful table filled with pretty lace trimmings, and old fur. It was run by two sisters who were as sweet as can be. Their things immediately reminded me of my mum and I think I visited that table a total of six times.
I ended up purchasing that lace shirt and some trimmings for packages (I wish I could share photos, but it wouldn't be a surprise!) and this amazing crazy quilt pillow! The silks are disintegrating (hmm, just like everything in my life right now) but, I stuck it up on one of my shelves, and I'm just happy to actually have a crazy quilt piece!
