Week 13: Purple

It’s important that the people of the interweb know that I am wearing purple in honor of today’s photo challenge.

True story.

This week’s subject made me realize two things.  One is that most of the purple that lives in our house is on my clothes.  I’m OK with this but it made coming up with a fun idea a little challenging.  Two is that my power to will my co-workers to wear purple does in fact not work.  At all.  Not an ounce of purple traipsed through the office.  Not even on Craigtron.

This weekend I tried to do an SP because my favorite hoodie that I own is purple.  And while I had fun laughing at all the ridiculous shots of my head and face scrunched in purple hoodie, it was not cute.  Or good.  I was not satisfied.  So last night I was on a mission to find something purple that didn’t reside in my closet.  And then I remembered…

Here is my purple:

Week 13: Purple

The lovely collegian ladies of Sigma Kappa hosted a silent auction dinner and dance last fall.  And since our sorority flower is the violet, we were encouraged to wear purple.  I might have happened to get the hubs a purple tie.  He’s not one for pink or purple – actually, most of his ties are blue and yellow – but he wore it for me anyway.  I pulled it out of his closet and tied it up and stuck it on a shirt.  Much better than Brooke’s nose sticking out of a hoodie – I’m digging the framing and how the color pops.

You gotta check out the WPC Flickr Group – there are some pretty clever “purple” shots.  And if you need some mid-afternoon reading, visit the Challenger Roll and see what other challengers are writing about.

Week 14 is already here – I think I might be in calendar shock that April Fools is this Friday.  Already? Yep, already. Our next subject for the challenge will be CIRCLE.  I don’t think we’ve had a shape yet so this could be cool.  And as always, happy snapping!

Wendi @ Bon Appetit Hon - Brooke, I’m impressed with the fact that you can tie a tie. I’m lucky if I can tie my shoes sometimes.
