Purple Hues

Rich, regal, elegant, mystical, sublime, abundant, spiritual, radiant... These are words that come to mind when I see the color purple. Today, Vivienne picked a basket full of violets in our yard to make into crystallized blossoms. Such an abundance of goodness in our typical back yard! Some other purple delights: a silk blouse from India, a mexican papel picado , little balls of leftover wool, Mia's pretty origami egg Easter greeting. Just noticing, and appreciating...




Is there a color that brings a certain quality to your day?
