Our final color for summer school is violet which brings to my mind a broad spectrum of the color purple. My post has a variety of purpleness...violet, plum and whatever. I'm definitely taking this color in various directions!

My first photo is of spooky purple bats for the upcoming Halloween celebration. They are magnetic and stick easily to my refrigerator door.
My mother in all of her plum finery. She recently passed away only 20 days short of her 96th birthday and I enjoy looking at all the vintage photos that I have of her. She was a sharp dresser and she always put together just the right accessories to top off her outfits. I've always loved this special photo of her.
A pretty hankie with the color violet mixed in somewhere.

Finally a good example of the color violet with some violets on a hankie!
My mother saved her hankie collection so I have quite an assortment of colors and designs to choose from.
Please visit Mrs. Matlock and all the other summer school participants. This is linked back to Alphabe-Thursday for the color violet.

That photograph of your mother is wonderful. You're so fortunate to have it. She looks so stylish. I have some of my mom's hankies too. I didn't even think to look at them for something violet.

Oh L. That picture of your Mother is absolutely gorgeous. What a stylish, beautiful woman. You look so much like your Mom. I see you especially through the eyes and nose.

Your collections of violets (and plums and purples) was wonderful!

So good to see you here today.

And we will have to do lunch as soon as the it cools off a bit!

I thank you for this great stop on our little journey through Rainbow Summer School.
