Growing up one of my favourite colours was purple. Any shade from pastel lavender and lilac, to deep purple. In my teens, my room was painted lavender; curtains and bedspread were vibrant shades of purple.
Perhaps I was inspired by Nino Tempo and April Stevens with their hit song in 1963 DEEP PURPLE (originally written by Peter DeRose as a piano composition, published in 1933, with lyrics added in 1938 by Mitchell Parish).

When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to twinkle in the sky
In the mist of a memory you wander back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh…
At Christmastime I bought a new purple shirt at Reitmans. It is made with two different fabrics: a silky one and sheer chiffon. It’s synthetic, but ever so soft and comfortable. Photos were taken at one of the centres where I work by Pauline, my dance student.
This shirt is one of 12 tops I’ve bought since fall. You’d think I’d have enough but I couldn’t resist buying 4 more tops on my trip to Seattle in January. Now I think I better take a break from my shopping spree–at least until spring–and earn some more money!
