Window Screens

What a fabulous idea!  And beautiful!  Use new or old lace, scrap lace or beautiful vintage lace to make screens for your windows!

Purple is the color for royalties. It stands for luxury, wealth, and sophistication. It is also the color of passion, romance and sensitivity. Purple is the third favorite color in terms of color preference after blue and green. 

Purple is a rare color in nature. In ancient times, people used a certain species of shellfish to create purple dyes -- a meticulous process. Some people like purple decorations for its unusually posh and artistic look.
