Purple love inside out









......as soon as there's a scent of spring in the air, I always recall the sweet smell of lilac
but alas, we don't have any here, so I compensate with lots of purple objects and sweet memories
around me.....

.......dès que le printemps se fait sentir, j'ai en tête le doux parfum du lilas mais hélas,
comme il n'y en a pas beaucoup ici, je compense avec pleins de petits objets et de souvenirs,
couleur mauve et lilas autour de moi......

My favorite glasses and my woollen shawl and the glycine flower at the Alhambra in Granada
Mes verres préférés et mon châle en laine et la glycine des jardins de l'Alhambra à Grenade

Little flowers at Liberty's in London

Recently, I started to buy a lot of purple bowls for my kitchen
Dernièrement, j'ai acheté toute une série de bols violet pour la cuisine


The trench coat from Blanco I wear nearly all the time is also purple, just to match the Ladurée boxes behind me !
Le trench de Blanco que je porte presque tout le temps est aussi violet, en parfait accord avec les boîtes Ladurée derrière moi!

I also love deeply my purple velvet jacket from Massimo Dutti and especially its lining.....
J'aime aussi beaucoup ma veste en velours violet de Massimo Dutti et particulièrement sa doublure...

and oh surprise this afternoon, I watched this sweet 60's movie The Prime of Miss
Jean Brodie, with a young Maggie Smith wearing an elegant fitted purple dress

et oh surprise..cet après-midi j'ai regardé un vieux film des années 60,The Prime of
Miss Jean Brodie, avec une Maggie Smith jeune et élégante dans une robe cintrée,
de couleur violette

Happy colorful day !
Belle journée toute en couleur !

What a delicious post. The purples are so beautiful in your photos. The glasses you have with the gold overlay are awesome. Love the purple trench coat too :)

Como siempre un auténtico placer pasar por aquí.
Adoro el olor de las lilas y desde que soy más mayor adoro también ese color que me transmite tanta positividad.
Estás guapísima con el abrigo.
Besos.

I grew up in a lavender painted bedroom.........a cosy attic room with a little window seat. Those lavender walls bring me a smile even today. Don't know if purple is considered a happy colour but it is for me. Love your purple bowls and jackets Lala, happy weekend in your purple trench. XO

Me encanta el malva Lala y tus fotos, lo mismo! Dime ¿ya han salido las glicinias en el sur?... qué gracia, Liberty lo asocio también a este color...
Besitos

In color analysis, purple is associated with change in our lives...perhaps you are also growing as an artist? This is a good thing!
