True Colors Thursday - Puce

Welcome to true colors Thursday once again! If you want to play along, let Blue know!
Today's color is puce, a color varying from deep red to dark purplish-brown!

This is mom's puce dishtowel! Not funny, mom!There are 3 jars of dilly beans and 1 jar of homemade tomato paste, which looks puce to us! Our friends, Pete and Laurie, make dilly beans every year from the beans they grown in their garden and we are lucky recipients!
The back cover of this book is puce! The book is called "Small Talk" It's full of pictures and patterns of miniature quilts!This is mom's Nantucket bag that goes just about everywhere that she goes! It holds her knitting projects! The brick sidewalks on the tote are a puce color and so is my collar!We promised dad we'd post of picture of his puce Indian motorcycle! He doesn't really call this color puce but it's close enough for us!Next week's color is pewter!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Martha said...

Puce is a strange colour! We loved that motor cycle, can we go for a spin?
We would love to be on riding that with our ears blowing in the wind!
Of course our mum loved the knitting bag!
love and kisses

Your house is just a rainbow of colors - always impressed that you have so many pictures of the different colors......

And you Dad's Indian - just breathtaking...too bad you guys did not get your picture sitting on it!!!


Roan said...

Wow! You found some amazing puce offerings. I especially like the motorcycle. And you are quite the dish in that towel. ;)

Mack said...

Our dad is super jellyish of that Indian!

Ina in Alaska said...

OMG!! That Indian chopper is OFF THE CHARTS GORGEOUS whether it is puce or not!! OOO LAA LAA, Jeter said he can ride in the side bag, please!

PS-- the bacon does not spatter in the oven! Ever since I found that recipe that is the ONLY way I make bacon now. Hugs and Love to you all!! xoxo

Puce was tough, but you all did great!

Marvin said...

love the picture of the wonderful bike!

My Jeannie wants to know whether your Mama saw the film about the Indian bike, starring Anthony Hopkins, my Dad said it was a very good film indeed. Of course my J cannot remember what it was called now, she thinks it may have been "The World's Fastest Indian".

My two crazy peeps, lurve bikes!

mucho love, Marvin xxxxxx

Puce is really a nice color but the word just does not connote nice at all. Love that motorcycle and the collar, so sweet with those hearts on it.

Niamh said...

That is a hard color but you found some nice things to shoot. Good job!

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

Wow! You did really well with Puce!

The Army of Four said...

My mom didn't know what puce was until now. And she has that VERY same quilt book, so now she'll have a marker. So to speak.

BRUTUS said...

Yuck, couldn't they have come up with a nicer name for that color? "Puce" makes me think of the color of the similar-sounding word that describes what we so when our stomachs reverse gears.... Ug. How about maroon-ish cranberry instead??

Hollie and Janie said...

Those veggies look yummy! I love you dad's motorcycle! You do look a bit annoyed to have had a dish towel thrown over you! I don't blame you!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Sapphire said...

wow, i learn something new today (:

Duffy said...

Nice choice of Puce colored stuff. My Auntie Ro would love the quilts. But I can totally understand why your dad would not be enthused about his motorcyle being called puce!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Happy Puce Day to you!
We find that a very interesting word. Now we learned something new.
We love all the examples you showed us.
And love Autums stack contest going on.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
Puce sounds like a difficult color in words but looking at your things I know we have several items in that color!
Good job!
Kisses and hugs

Stardust said...

So this is Puce! =D And I'm amazed how you guys could dig all that rare colors!

Unknown said...

You made us wait quite a while for the puce! The puce, I can say that all day, the puce, the color puce...puce. I wonder what you'll come up with for pewter... ;)

Amber and Nala said...

I like the blanket...don't you like blankies Maggie?


Rudy said...

So that's what puce is! And what a neat-o motorcycle --- Dennis would love a ride on it, he's got a Honda Magna 550 and it doesn't run. Is that a new one?


The Oceanside Animals said...

Puce! Are you sure that's not a made-up Sherwin-Williams color?

Huskee and Hershey said...

Gee, puce is not an easy color and you guys did great! Ummm.. Maggie, puce looks pretty nice on you... :)

Cassie said...

OH no that motor cycle picture must stay hiden from our daddy. You remember he had an accident on one last June and his clavicle still isn't connected right...anyway, Mom wants him to sell the thing and he wants to keep it.SO far it's still in the garage but he hasn't riden it as it hurts when he does.Who do you suppose will win this one?? That aside---Your daddy's Indian is very pretty to look at!!

Puce is such an unusual color. We like the Indian motorcycle.
