Capturing Purple

Purple has been a favorite color of mine for a loooong time. As a youngster, my bedroom walls were lilac and the afghans knitted and crocheted for me by grandmas and friends were always purple in hues ranging from psychedelic black-purples to very staid and lady-like violet shades. It's not a color I can wear, or want for dishes or towels... it just makes me happy. So as soon as I saw Beth was accepting links for this morning's You Capture: Purple & Bathrooms, I grabbed the camera and made a quick tour of the house.

Duck Tape, don't leave home without it.

and Pasque flowers found morel hunting last year (yes, an archive photo... but they're so pretty!)

The other theme this week is bathrooms, of which we have two cool art-deco examples. But seriously friends, 'clean enough to photograph' is a little beyond my motivation level today. Maybe later.

"I never saw a purple cow..." but there's a good chance you might find one over at I Should Be Folding Laundry.   


  1. Mmmm, those home grown onions look yummy! and that flower is beautiful!

  2. oh I have yet to see Purple duck tape - I'm gonna have to get some of that!

  3. Wow. That purple flower is so gorgeous. What a pretty shot. I LOVE it. Also amazed about the purple duct tape. Too fantastic!
