In Praise of Purple!

I'll admit it. I'm an occasional blogger. This whole experience is new to me. So bear with me. I have good news and bad news. Good news is I have accepted a really good full time job! Bad news is I've developed trigger thumb, so I'm trying to get that surgically fixed so I can start my job. Trigger finger  ( or thumb,  officially called stenosing tenosynovitis) just plain hurts. So I'm seeing a hand surgeon Wednesday. I've tried the shots before and they were incredibly painful and ultimately a waste of time. This girl has too many things going and the fact that it's slowing me down is really frustrating. But, surgery is minor and I bounced back quickly with the other thumb, so I'm hoping this will be the same situation. I've been unable crochet or sew.

Sooo.... In the meantime I'd like to explore the use of purple in decorating. I came across a whole blog post on the subject, so Intead of doing a whole narrative, I thought I'd add some nice photos. The last photo links to the blog post about decorating with purple.
