"I think it annoys God if you walk by the color purple in nature and don't notice it."
- Alice Walker from "The Color Purple"
I LOVE purple... any shade of it!
When I was growing up, after my father passed away, my mother loved the this color so much, she painted the outside of our house lavender with gray shutters! It became a reference point. People would say " Oh you live on the street with the purple house." And I would so "No... I live IN it."
My mom has always had a strong personality and never really cared what other people think... then or now. My dad would never would have allowed this color for the house. He was probable rolling over in his grave! ;)
