It's a Purple Party!

Etsy Cottage Style is hosting a purple party!

Now, it isn't that I don't like purple, but
I just don't have much of it in my home.

I mean, my wedding was purple.  *shudder*
And, how that came to be, is a long story....

....and when hubby and I celebrated our 35th
anniversary a few years ago, we had a purple cake....

I know, this is supposed to be vintage purple things,
and the cake wasn't vintage....but, hubby and I are!  hehe!

Okay, let's get serious! Here are the few
vintage purple items that I own and love.



This pretty purple vase belonged to my mil.

This pretty dish also came from her.
I love the sweet little purple flowers.

Well, there you have it!
All of my purple treasures.

Be sure to visit Etsy Cottage Style
to see what other pretty purple
beauties are out there in blogland.

Wow, Debi, purple wedding! Buy we used some great colors "back in the day"(as my son says). In 1978 I used yellow! Anyway thanks for sharing your vintage purple treasures!

Hi Debi!
I couldn't find one purple thing in my house either. I like purple, but was surprised to find none. Thankfully my website contained several things.
You were ahead of your time with a purple wedding they were still doing Rainbow Weddings then...remember those?

Oh Debi! A purple wedding! How great!Judging by the pic you could have gone olive or orange, or bright yellow (as my aunts did yuck!! I was in them all!) But your other purples are awesome too! Purple is actually my favorite color. Always has been. I am pretty unchangeable (but pink, red, and jadite green are wonderful) hehehehe
Love this party!!
Hugs, Lisa

Love all your purple pretties. Noticed the china plates hanging on the wall in your wedding picture - the more things change the more they stay the same. Bet you wish you still had all the plates. Love the wedding cake. Hugs - Sandi
