Plant purple carrots and stock up on silk cloth because they are amazing together! I'd seen the magic happen over at Nat's and Jacky's but until you're actually the one unrolling this goodness....
None of the purple carrot photos are retouched, only sharpened. This is how it really looks. There was no pre- or post-treatment other than ironing with dry heat -- just purple carrots and a strip of silk cloth rolled with one bit of copper pipe and one rusty bolt, then steamed. I don't know how colorfast it is yet because I won't rinse it for a few months.
Bayberry candles lit for our New Year's Day dinner, said to bring good fortune if allowed to burn down completely at first lighting (which we didn't do because I couldn't stay up that late, the house burning down wouldn't have been good fortune). New and old books and the softest gray hexipuff on needles waiting for me.
Happy weekending. xx
