...Purple colored glasses

Who needs Rose Colored Glasses,
When you can have Purple Colored Glasses?

My Purple Colored Glasses rekindled my Love Affair with Fall during our annual venture to a Grape Festival in the heart of the FingerLakes wine country...


mmmm... the scents of purple Oregano blossoms in the brisk air...

...tough little, wild, purple flowers fighting their way through the leaves...


We were even able to navigate some spontaneous saling with our Purple colored glasses on...
...a purple velvet bookmark with pewter ends...


...and a simple, yet classic jeweltoned glass vase!
On the way home from the festival, we made our yearly stop at a little, out-of-the way Antique Shop (who's sign boasts 'GOOD JUNK'!). DH and I spotted this 'Floral Shell Wall Thingie'. I coerced DH to take a photo of it with his phone. Not sure why! I really have No Use for one of these. Maybe, take some ideas from it and create something else with my massive stash-o-shells?! A Halloween/Fall design? A bright red poinsettia? Any ideas out there?
While browsing, the proprietor was talking with another customer... "...the minute I bring in new stuff, it tends to fly out of here. It's almost like it has residual energy." . hmmm...


So, now that my Fall Mojo has been restored, I am ready to head back to Always Christmas land tomorrow. It shall be a short week, then we are off to Warrensburg for a splendid Fall weekend in the Adirondacks, full of family, friends and Much Saling!!

That's a neat Floral Shell Wall Thingie (and that's exactly what I would have called it, too) -- all it needs is GLITTER! I'll bet you can make one even "mo bettah" than the one you saw, though.
