Pink and Purple Hydrangea

I love hydrangea in all colors, but my favorite are these pinks and purples. When I spied these at the farmer's market (6 stems for $6), I knew the colors would go perfectly with the throw I knitted. And indeed, the colors are a beautiful match. I love how the green tile of the fireplace complements the flowers and their leaves. In front of the fireplace is an antique grate, which has a lovely patina and texture.

  3. Hi Claudia -
    I saw the photo of your bungalow while leaving a comment over at Urban Cottage. Your bungalow looks so much like my neighbors' home across the street. Their home is stone, but otherwise very similar. So glad I visited. I love the tiles around your fireplace.....are they original to the house? Are there more photos of your home on the blog?
    Cheers from DC,

    1. Thanks for visiting! I love your blog too. Such gorgeous photos! Yes, the green tile around the fireplace is original to the 1922 house. We fell in love with it! There are some tiles on the hearth that need replacing, and I don't know how to go about it. Any tips? I want to match the tile as closely as possible.

    2. I thought they were original! We have a lot of old bungalows here in the DC area. You might want to try the Brass Knob in Washington, DC. They have a website, but phoning directly is probably better. Good luck. If I see any, I'll let you know immediately.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! I have an Endless Summer hydrangea that looks like this. Maybe one day it will bloom enough to cut and bring inside. So pretty!
