TRUE COLOURS THRUSDAY - MAUVE to LILAC

Good Morning,

And welcome to True Colours Thursday. Our host f
or today is Blue and the guidelines are outlined on her blog. Basically you post and link it back to her. It's that easy and really interesting to see what folks will come up with.

We had a bit of trouble with this colour, so ours go from mauve to lilac to lavender and all shades in between. We are more turquoise or rust type of canines.


This is the quilt that our local
Sylvatus Ruritan Club
raffled off thi
s weekend.
It was pieced by one of the ladies
who live nearby and then machine quilted.
We're sure there must be
some mauve
squares
in there.


You know our Mom has a
brown, wilte
d thumb
and can never gro
w anything.
Here are our kitchen "flowers".
Some of them are mauve.


This past winter,
our big sissy, Kat,
asked Mom to knit a scarf.
Mom used different sh
ades of
purples and blu
es
and even received an honorable mention
in a contest!

We all belong to the
Scottish Terrier Club
or
Western Virginia.
Our seal has a
lavender thistle on it.
Little do the members know -
our Dad fights thistles all summer long
in our pastures.


And last,
but not least,
here is our beautiful Carrleigh consoling
Lilly and Piper's firstborn pup, Maddie.
This was after her other litter-mates
had left to go to their furever homes.
Carrleigh is wearing her
lavender Lupine Jelly Roll collar.

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java
