Photo Hunt: PURPLE!!!

Okay, so I'll admit to being a purple-aholic! Why be an ordinary yellow ducky when you can be a purple one?
I am a clown who goes by the name of Purple Durple. Miss Durple goes to schools, churches and all kinds of places. I couldn't find a picture of Purple Durple so I'm using one of this little figure my mother gave me. She said it reminded her of me. Now, isn't that special?
This week I found a couple of purple houses ---





And a purple motorcycle!


Even a purple billboard. (Yes, taken while I was driving; thus the lack of clarity.)


I use purple paper clips, pens and markers.

Even purple Post-it notes.


These are my purple glasses.


A purple briefcase! It holds my laptop and loads of other things.


I even drink purple juice!


I even take the "little purple pill" for heartburn!
Our church uses purple paraments during certain times of the year, like during the Lenten season.


This stained glass window in our church has shades of purple.

Speaking of glass, I love cut-to-clear glass and crystal. In this picture, most of the purple pieces are on the top shelf, although there are some on each of the shelves.


Two purple bowls are on the top shelf.


Here's a new purple accessory. She's small and bendable.



She holds things with her legs and/or arms. Here, she's on my refrigerator door holding two large oven mitts.

I finished law school two years ago at the age of 57. Our caps were purple - and not very flattering.


Some of the most beautiful purples are in nature.



Some people don't like wisteria, but I do.




This photo taken by Gerry Dickinson captures a magnificent sunset with hues of purple. This is the Wando River in Awendaw, just outside of Charleston.

PS -- And then there's one of my favorite little poems:
Purple Cow
I never saw a purple cow
I hope I never see one,
But I can tell you this right now:
I'd rather see than be one.
(then later)
Ah yes, I wrote "The Purple Cow"
I'm Sorry now I wrote it
But I can tell you anyhow
I'll kill you if you quote it! --Ogden Nash

You have officially outdone everyone on the hunt for Purple!

Congratulations for getting your law degree at the age of 57, that is truly inspiring! (Locking into my brain to combat any suspicions that I'm too *old* to do anything!)

Aileni said...

I am now convinced you live in a Purple World. An incredible selection you have worked hard at.

Christi said...

Great purple shots. It is my favorite color as well. I have to say the purple church shots were my fave, I always loved the lenten season when I went to a Lutheran church. You could tell what time of year it was by what the minister was wearing and what the altar was decorated with. Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Perfectly purple!
Did you enter law school because of the purple cap at the end? It was meant to be!

Margo said...

I like the bendable and small purple girl. I feel like that! Have a great weekend!

healingmagichands said...
