True Colors Thursday - Purple

It's true colors Thursday again! Mom wants to know where the weeks go?!
Our hostess is Miss Blue! Drop by her blog and let her know if you'd like to play along! It really is lots of fun!
Today's color is purple!
This is one of our only remaining purple toys! Mitch has done the rest of them in!
This Airedale sign was painted by a lady named Barbara Arnold! Isn't it wonderful?! It hangs in our bathroom!
This is our very special purple ice cream spoon that Putter gave us! We each have one of our very own! This picture was taken before Mitch got his hairecut!
This lady teddy has a pretty purple hat! She sits next to the fireplace in our "new" guestroom!
Mitch is checking out the purple salvia and the purple chives!
Mom took this picture of the purple crocus last month when it was blooming away!
Next weeks color is Ivory!

So until next time.....................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

The picture of the crocuses is Mama's favorite. We have crocuses too but they only seem to last for two days. The rain gets them every time.

Love -

Niamh said...

That crocus is really very purple. But I like your purple ice cream spoons the best and I hope you get to use them often.

Your friend,

We love your colour posts! The airedale sign is wonderful - the teddy with the purple hat is too cute for words. If I were a guest I might have to sneak that teddy and her hat into my weekend bag!!!

GREAT purples - we aren't playing today as mom is too busy with the little one. BTW - the little one has a chair like your bear is sitting in. Were your folks in the furniture business at one time?

Stella said...

Hey, buds!

I'm totally catching up on your most recent posts and I am laughing my booty off! That present from Reilly was TOO MUCH! The real question is, have you christened it yet?

My girl is so glad that you posted some uncropped photos of your place. She's going to steal them so she can show her friends. She was so busy taking photos of pups and peeps that she forgot to get some of the photos of your place. She's STILL talking about our time with you guys and in Boston and in NYC.

Hope you're finally recovered from our visit. LOVED all the purple around your house.

Glad you guys liked your pressies. My girl STILL hasn't given ours to us (we're still trying to get organized now that we're home from the roadtrip)!

Goober love & smooches to you and your mama & dad,

Raising Addie said...

Great purples!!

That ice cream spoon is our favorite! It has been getting real hot here so there has been talk of some lucky pups getting some doggy ice cream. We are sure it is not going to be as good as the real stuff but we will take anything we can get! BOL!

The pizza that Lucie helped herself to had pepperoni and onion on it! Our parents were not happy about the onion on there but we were ok and boy did it taste GREAT!

Chasing my tale...

Teddy said...

Mack said...

My moms says that crocus is beeyooteeful.

Fenway said...

Purple is perfect for the royal couple, M&M!

Hey...have you ever tried the donuts at DD? Just stay away from the chocolate coated Boston Cremes!

Molly and Taffy said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch.

We, too, were a bit thin on the ground when it came to purple toys. They all seemed to have gone to wherever purple toys go to once they are in tatters.

Have a grrrrrrrrrrewat weekend.

Petra said...
