A Spot of Purple

I've been painting most items white or very light green, blue or yellow this winter but recently I had the urge to do a couple of small pieces for my living room in dark purple.

So, "Nairobi Dusk" now adds some pop.

A small table -- a Craig's List find.... had been in sad, sad shape is now embellished with swirls and holds a silver plated tray.

Across the room, a detailed little shelf done up in purple holds a well tarnished silver plated tea pot. These two items "followed me home" from my favorite local shop for special finds, The Trading Post.
