Mom's Color Story

When I went to the cabbage patch to pick-up my beautiful new baby.....

Our entire little town was covered in snow.

But things didn't go well. We had to live there for an entire week. We were never allowed outside. Maybe the whole world was covered in snow. I didn't know.

When we finally got to go home...

...lilacs were blooming....

...and everywhere was purple!

Did you ever crave a color?

I could not get enough Purple.

Why only Purple? Why no need for sunshine and all the other early Spring colors?

Then I realized, of course! Purple is my precious baby's birthstone :)

Now while I like pumpkins and coffee and whatever color my latest quilt is....
I only love purple.

And my sweet baby growing strong and much too fast? Her favorite color is....

Happy Birthday, Alex  --Love, Mom

  1. You just reminded me how much I like lavender and white together, makes me crave spring! Great post - thanks

  2. That is so cute. Love that pic of her and the bike. So sweet.

  3. This is an amazingly beautiful post for this soon to be 62 year old lady who has LOVED purple her entire life. Thanks so much for sharing. I don't visit Pinterest because I know myself and fear I would loose even more quilting time to this computer, LOL. Again, thanks for adding so much gorgeous purple to my evening. Hugs...
