“Purple people eater. Work only with purple materials today. Try working on a purple surface for a real challenge.”

Wow! A Purple day!! Now I was one of those kids who LIVED in purple velour, especially in the tween years. I made purple shirts, skirts, dresses, wore purple tights and my favorite pair of shoes were calfskin light purple Mary Janes from Portugal. Purple gladiolas, purple lavender, Canterbury Bells, delphinium, etc. So, this was a serious love of color.

The first items I thought of were the old glass jar, vases and the purple cow which belonged to my grandmother. Then it was off to discover, assemble and design in purple land.
