Cottage Colors Party "The Color Purple"

Purple for me are "Violets" A Name,  My Mother and "Symbols of Love"  Beautiful Memories of  Days Gone By
I'm joining the Cottage Colors Party today to share the color for the month for February, the color Purple. What comes to mind when you think about the color purple? Flowers, the Movie, a friend or something else? For me the Color Purple is the color of love, warmth, affection, kindness and everything that comes to mind when I think of my Mother. Her name was Violet and what a lovely and beautiful person she was in every way, shape and form. This last group is a old photo of my Mom, one of her hankies with her name on it that I gave her as a child for Mother's Day one year. I purchased it in the 5 and dime and a violet demi-tasse cup and saucer. What wonderful Memories these all stir into a cup of beautiful Thoughts and Tea.

Gotta love the name as I love the flowers as it's very close to my own, "viola".

Marilou, drop by and read my post from Sunday. It was very healing in what I experienced and I blogged about it. As one widow to another you would appreciate it.

God bless!
