True Colors Thursday - Violet

It's true colors Thursday once again! Our hostess is Blue!

If you want to play just let her know and she'll give you her blessing! Today's special color is violet!

Dad's mom painted violets on this flat iron years ago. We never met nanny but we've heard lots about her!
Mom says that she would have loved us!
Our gram collected fancy hankies for years and she has passed them down to mom! These are the violet ones! You can't even imagine how many hankies mom owns!
I wonder if they taste as good as kleenex?!
Mom and Mitch are playing tug with violet Wubba! I'm not sure how much longer Wubba will be alive! Mitch loves shreading him!
This is a print of me! Miss Barbara painted the original and it sold on ebay only mom didn't win it! Mom bought a mat and flipped it over and sponge painted on it to match the colors of the hydrangea stencil in our downstairs hydrangea-themed bathroom!
Imagine - my beautiful face hangs in the bathroom! Does this seem right to you?!Next weeks color is green!

See you all next Thursday!

Maggie and Mitch

Those are beautiful violet things indeed! I especially like the print of you, Maggie! I think Ms. Barbara is a very talented lady in capturing your potrait superbly! *grins*

Hope you have a great week!


Princess Patches said...

We really like the hankies, but we LOVE your portrait, Maggie! We wouldn't have a bit of trouble hanging it in the bathroom...or anywhere else!

Love that portrait Maggie. Nothing like having your image immortalised in paint! Delighted to hear that next week is Green - it being St Patrick's Day and all next Tuesday!! lots of woofs - Clive

Niamh said...

Those hankies are very pretty but I don't think your mom would appreciate you shredding them like tissues! Love your portrait Maggie.

Your friend,

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Wow, what great picks for violet.
Mommy loves the hankies. Her grandmother used to give hankies to all of her granchildren, girls that is, for Christmas but Mommy doesn't know what happened to them.
She stiched all kind of stuff on them.

Maggie, that painting of you is pawsome!!

{{{huggies}}}...Mona & Mommy too!!

Ciao M&M!

Maggie, you are gorrrrrjusss in your portrait (don't think of it as being in the bathroom -- think of it as being in the spa!), and the violet in the frame sets off your coloring so well.

And Mitch, that violet Wubba looks like it's been well loved (hee hee). I just got my first grown-up Wubba, so if yours wears out, I'd be happy share mine with you!

Tanti baci!

Jake of Florida said...

Violet is a lovely color -- but your portrait is beyond lovely. We think it probably gets the most viewing in the bathroom -- so we wouldn't feel too unhappy about that location.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Unknown said...

Maggie, think of it this way....everybody who comes into the house is going to see your portrait at one time or another! It's the room with the most traffic!

Great photos. We love the hankies. So sweet.

Your pal,


Kelly said...

Ohhh Maggie! I can hardly handle that picture of Mitch tugging on the Wubba! His ears just look SOOOO cute!!!

You found some great violet stuff!

Aw, what a nice picture of you in that pretty bandana. I had a red Wubba but I ate most of it and now it's gone. I ate some of my mom's handkerchiefs like that, too...

Wow!! What pretty violet stuff! I love the hankies.

That is a beautiful painting of you, and I agree, it should not be in the bathroom. It belongs in L'louvre.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Your violets are very special one of a kind!
The hankies were beautifully embroideried, the painted flat iron, the pup painting, oh I love every one of your violet showcase!

Violet Thursday is so pretty! The hankies DO look good enough to eat.Maggie we love the print of you in the hydrangia room. When you first posted about that room our mommy thought it was such a lovely idea...she's been trying to think of where she can hang our picture in the bathroom now.Airekisses & Welshiehugs,

Lots of great violet items!! Your picture in the bathroom is a little weird, but I guess that way your Mom can see your face in every room.

Who would even dare to blow their nose in those beautiful handkerchiefs? Wonderful violet things you have posted.

Teddy Bear said...

Wow, what pretty hankies and you have a painting of you? How wonderful! My Mommy did not knit the blanket. She really wants to learn how to knit. My Daddy's grandma knitted the blanket a long time ago.:)

Hey Mags...thanks so much for checkin' on me when I was sick...boy, I hope I never get that nonsense again...yeesch!!!

Hey have you ever posted a pic of your house?? How old is it?? We bet it's bootiful!

We have a hankie collection too...well, it's was her grandma's and she was born in 1890...pretty old huh!!

Hey a while ago you posted a pic of a wooden carved Lincoln penny...does the person who did that still carve? Do you know his address? Mumsie was thinkin' bout it for daddy, but she doesn't know how much it would be??

Pee mail her at if you could...

I love you guys! Your always having a great time- one of these days,,,, i keep saying- i will play true colors too!

Comet said...

Those are very pretty violet items. The hankies are beautiful. If you swallow a little bit of the wubba when you shred it, you can have violet poop!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch,
Those hankies are lovely!! Are they your family AIRElooms?

Anonymous said...

Violet hugs to you - you're so cute in your portrait. I think bathrooms are very important places for humans, so it's a good place for you to be.

Simba and Jazzi said...

So many pretty violet things.

Have a great weekend.
