"Mauve? Mauve is just pink trying to be purple."
-James McNeill Whistler
Now isn't that true!? There are so many shades of purple! I found this out as I was looking for the color purple for this week's Scavenger Hunt. I also realized that there are not many things that are purple. I thought it would be easy to find, but it wasn't. Sure, there were flowers, but I had taken alot of pictures of flowers recently and I wanted to be different. So, I present to you purple:
Okay, these ARE flowers, but I did something a little different with them. I like how they look like a star, too. Does anyone know what kind of flower this is? I found it in my Mom's neighbor's yard.
The second picture is a yummy treat! A grape gummi bear!:
Thirdly, I have a purple jug for you. I have a glass collection, as I have told you many times before :-). This is a purple jug I found at an Amish lady friend's craft store. It was the Amish lady that made my quilt. I wrote about her, remember? This jug has a picture of George Washington on it. It held maple syrup. I am not sure how old it is (or even if it is old at all), but I didn't purchase it for the age, I liked the color and style.:
Lastly, I have a clay picture I painted one afternoon of purple lillies. Here is part of it. It was too big to take the whole thing. It was fun!:
I have been having a blast with Matt being here! He is my sunshine!! I will be back on regular schedule when he leaves Tuesday afternoon. I hope everyone is having a good weekend! Hope you enjoyed my purple items! Sending out hugs and love! xox
