I never really thought I was into purple things. I usually find myself drawn to reds, blacks or whites but I did find a few purple pieces for this month’s Collecting Colour post. Where did I find my purple things? Well… in my wardrobe (surprisingly!) and my childhood!
The above fabrics belong to some clothes from my vintage collection (one a feedback dress) and some thrifted remnants I’m planning on making into something lovely.
Do you recognise the doll? Were you a child of the 80s like me? Growing up, I adored the cartoon series ‘Rainbow Brite‘ and my favourite character in the show was ‘Shy Violet’. I like to think I got my computer smarts and excellent taste in spectacles from her! ;)
In my search for purple I also rediscovered a fabulous children’s book ‘Roses are Red. Are Violets Blue??’ which is all about colour. How perfect is that?! You might be seeing a few more pages from this book in future ‘Collecting Colour’ posts.
Do you have any treasured purple things too?
