Violet shop update~

When I was in the fourth grade, me and my friends formed a little gang. We called ourselves the "Purple Pearls". I don't think we did much gang-wise, no knocking over fruit stands or anything but we managed to elect ourselves a mascot (the mythical Unicorn) and get together on weekends to show off our Lisa Frank sticker collections. Point is I think there is a time in most girls young lives when purple is just the thing. Its not pink, its not blue...its just Goldilocks right.

As an adult, I admit that neutrals are more my style. But sometimes when Winter has its hold on me and I am getting a little restless, and Spring seems TOO far away, purple might once again be just the right thing. It feels close enough to gray to keep me from feeling like a rainbow and its color palette moves towards the season that I long for the most. When merely looking through seed catalogs makes me cry for the sight of Dog-tooth violets, Wisteria, lilac and sweet peas. Purple is a great color for February and lets face it, a little whimsy may be in order when you want to feel like a kid again.

  2. I knew a girl in high school who only wore purple everyday. She was a gang of 1 and her mascot was a fairy.
    Love the shoes.
    I heard there was snow in Texas, did you get some?

  3. Oh yeah, snowed in for almost three days now, the roads are too icy to drive and Ive made every one pot meal to think of. But outside is beautiful and I am getting lots done on the web!
