Admittedly finding mauve in my stash was a challenge.
I moved last October and did a major "cleansing" so that I could fit in my new place.
I know I had the perfect mauve at that point, but alas,
it went to the thrift shop.
This one looks more pink here than it really is.
But then I dug a little deeper. . . .
If you can believe it, the one on the right is Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley!
I really bought mauve in the last year.
So here's what I pulled out.
I started with the Kaffe in the middle and then
pulled the others based on that.
In the past I would have definitely gone to a dusty blue
with a mauve, but here I relied on good 'ole Kaffe to show me the way.
What is it about mauve that makes us cringe?
For me, it reminds me of a particular person that made my life difficult.
Those times are long gone, and now I see mauve in a different light.
Of course, this is not your grandmother's mauve, so that makes a difference!
I'm going with the cobalt blue for my backgrounds for this challenge.
Can't wait to see what Victoria tortures us with next! :)
