Its that time of the week again, and this time its to share all things Lavender.  Its not a colour I have a lot of but here are a few snippets.

The first collage is my lavender (and purple) quilts or bits of quilts and some stitchery.  The snail trails quilt was made for my step daughter Nicole who loves all things purple.  It does not show in the photo but the border is a shiny lavender and I quilted large hearts around the edges and filled it in with bubbles, it looked very effective.

The Second collage is items from around home, other than the coral that I photographed when I did a snorkeling trip to the Great Barrier Reef in May.  The stone birds are something my Hubby and I collect, you may recall my orange parrot from Rio De Janiero. 
Well the purple one here on the green rock is from Thailand, and the parrot on the cut amethyst is from San Paulo in Brasil- I didnt realise until posting this that the image of the parrot has been cut off and you can only see the stone - never mind. DH was born in Sao Paulo

I am looking forward to visiting every body elses lavender.
