I admit it, I crushed on Donny big time, had his posters on my bedroom walls and even a pillow case with his picture saying "Sweet Dreams." I know, I know...I can hear you all snickering and asking what the heck does this have to do with purple pansies? Donnie's fave color was purple so I wore purple EVERYTHING for about a year (even my socks were purple). Talk about passion! My fave flowers were purple pansies for a long time and I committed to filling the church with them upon our wedding day (which sadly never happened). So, you can see how near and dear to my heart these beautiful blooms are. What a delight to use them as inspiration for this simple pearl necklace.
