Round Robin Photo Challenge -- The Color Purple
This time, the Round Robin Photo Challenge is on the color purple, a theme picked by Vicki of the blog Maraca in a recent suggestion round-up. I don't have a lot of purple, as it is not one of the colors I use or wear often, but I had more than I expected when I went through the house and hunted for items of the color. Here are the ones I found in no particular order, other than the pictures of my grandson, little Alex, which are in purple magnetic frames on my fridge. In the first, Alex was about 2 months old. In the second, he was about 3 or 4. (He is 8 years old now.)
This huge half coffee cup was given to me by a similarly-cat-loving friend, and it has a purple cat on it. I use it for holding rubber stamps and stamp pads.
I have been known to scrapbook and have quite a few Creative Memories scrapbooks, although I haven't done it recently. Here are a couple of purple scrapbooks I have made, and they are among my favorite color of scrapbooks.
This jumper and short-sleeved jacket are lavendar, which to me is in the same family as purple. I bought it a few years ago and have worn it once, I think, but I really like it. The jacket has little umbrellas embroidered on it -- perfect for Oregon!
I have a placemat for each of the grandchildren and here is 3-year-old Emily's, with its teapot containing some purple. It would have to, being for a little girl!
I went outside to see if there were any purple flowers, as sometimes little ones come up in the early spring, and I found these. I don't know if they are true violets or not but they are pretty.
Then I went to my Flickr archives and found the following photos, of course featuring purple flowers and my cats.
