Ikeas and mine purple haze

Deep purple fusion/confusion

Deep purple fusion/confusion

Last summer I found old box of chalks and I wanted to create something with them. The inspiration came in my mothers in law garden where my eyes caught deep purple (almost black)clover.

The pattern I created was little confused and my love didn’t like it very much. Neither our friend who stopped by. I told him the inspiration was my mothers in law garden and he commented: Was she  very angry? Yes, yes I got it. He didn’t like it either.

But last month my husband and I went to Ikea and I brought every catalog I saw and as I turned the pages there it was … A coushion very familiar to me and my clover design … O.k., not exactly the same but quite alike. Now I know why they didn’t like it – it was too soon. It was he next year trend ha, ha, ha …

Ikeas cusion. Next year trend.
