Your Daily Dose of Purple

So judging by my blog you can see that pink and green are my favorite colors. But running a close third is purple. I Love purple. I think it started when I was about 5 years old. I used to visit my next door neighbor alot (I was a chatty kathy kid). She was an older woman who was always out in the yard tending to her grapes (yes, grape vines!) and bees (yes! bees!). Thinking back now, she was very hippy...Ah hah! so that's were my bohemian spirit initiated. Anyway, the point here is that she always used to invite me in for some cold iced tea, lemonade, etc. and her WHOLE kitchen was purple. INCLUDING the refridgerator. Very cool. I loved her house. Sadly the people who bought my parents old house also bought that house and tore them both down. I know, makes me want to cry. There is something to be said about older houses with character as opposed to new mansions. They are just not the same. So, here's some purple, enjoy!

The first time I got to choose the color for my walls (age 5, or thereabouts) I chose purple. Mama talked me down to lavender ;-)

Love the purple blooms.
