No beige for me!

You’re probably familiar with the following line:

“When I am an old woman I shall wear purple…”

from the poem, Warning by Jenny Joseph.

I figure I’m way ahead of the game on this one…

I’ve been wearing purple ever since I was knee-high to a grasshopper. 😉

Someday I’ll be a little old lady who boldly wears purple, or fuchsia, or red!


But ya know, kids, it occurs to me that we haven’t gone shopping together in months! So, just for fun, let’s pop over to etsy and see what we can find in purple! (If you’d like a shopping trip in your favorite color scheme next time, just holler!)

Fashion meets art with this gorgeous shawl from sweetknitting.

There’s something special about handblown art glass. This vase is from infiniteglassworks.

As an iris-lover this adorable wristlet purse from KnitzyBlonde caught my eye!

Here’s a lovely linen and crochet pincushion from namolio.

And finally, a pretty Hydrangea Pillow from dedeetsyshop.

‘Til next time,

  1. Oh how gorgeous your purple shopping choices are! I’d take any and all!!! 😀 Paulette xoxo

  2. Funny thing. When I was young, I hated purple and pink. Wouldn’t be caught DEAD in them. I think it had something to do with the fact that the walls in the living room in my mom’s house were pink and the carpet that covered the hard wood floors was grey with a mix of pink flowers. Sounds gross, but thinking back now, it was nice.

    Anyway, my colors are coral and aqua but I have grown to absolutely love purple and the right shade (bluish, not reddish) may be my favorite color. I am also very drawn to pink now.

    Love the shopping trip. Great minds…you know. I looked at the first shawl just the other night!

    Have a great day Crissie. Hope its not purple unless there is a rainbow.

  3. I’m not a pink fan but I love purple. I like the shawl and I have a perfect jumper it would go with. I actually like purple and green together. This shopping trip was fun. Another of my favorite colors is cranberry and mauve type colors.

  4. I love purple but have very little purple – hummmmm – I forsee another shopping trip for me!

    Anyway I bought two purses at Zoe’s Boutique and love them. She also has purple fabric which is awesome. Check out her site:

  5. Oh purple is my favorite! I’m sure I’ll be wearing it my whole life! I just love that vase, and the wristlet is great too! Great choices!
