Spring is not so far, and I even feel its fresh spirit. Lavender or lilac are very gentle and cool colors for a spring or summer wedding, they are so beautiful and tender! Just imagine a pastel lavender wedding dress.
Some people preferred Monya's pumpkins in her various grays to those in prettier colors, but I am not among them. This tossed-together arrangement in an antique silver food dome sold the same day I put it out, and it's a good thing it did, because having to look at that blackened silver would have driven me crazy after a day or so. Bronze has patina, copper has patina, but silver just has tarnish, and it needs to go away. Sorry.
