Purple Challenge!

I used to love purple! I haven't quite come full circle again yet, but it certainly is an attention grabbing colour!
This vintage Abba LP cover is lovely and lilac:More purple at home:
  1. A project I am working on ...
  2. Aerial view of bromeliad flower in my garden
  3. Monday SPCA charity shop find!
  4. Australian violet patch
  5. Collar Cushion cover
  6. Indigenous Potato bush flower. They look gorgeous on the bush, but unfortunately don't last in the vase!
The end of a fun colour week!

Lovely pics. Love the Abba cover. Potato bush is so dainty.I like the intrigue of "a project". I'm going to check what purple things I have in my home - it's not a colour I can immediately place...

Oops, I'm so unobservant. One metre to the right of where I am sitting, I have a beautiful painting of a PURPLE jacaranda tree!

I really like your purples - oh, come back Abba! Their music was so cheesy and yet I LOVE them and sang along loudly with the musical (everyone did, so that was okay). I also sang along in the movie (not so okay, as nobody else did, and I got a few prods in the ribs from L'Usband). And I once had a New Year's party with a few friends where we sang Abba songs at the top of our voices! (PS I quite like the fabric necklace- is it difficult to knot?)

ABBA - Fabulous! Did you say the top flower is a bromaliad - love it!

Thank you too for your comments - I love hydrangeas and have blue, deep purple, light purple, pink, white...

Lovely passionate colour! I have both Australian violets a potato bush, lavender and plecthantrus in our tiny front garden. A purple fiesta... but none looking too happy or healthy at the moment :(

I've really enjoyed following your 'colour week'. The bromeliad flower is wonderful! As is the red rose (in Thursday's 'red' post) embroidered by your Mum.
