You're Turning Violet, Violet!

I don't understand why babies feel compelled to eat permanent purple ink pads. Or to squish all the permanent purple ink between their fingers. Or to wipe it all over their legs and arms and shirt (did I mention it was permanent?).

But they do. Or at least Annelie does.

Its my fault, of course. After Gracie spent the afternoon playing with my rubber stamps, I noticed the purple ink lid was missing the stamp pad to go with it. "I'll take care of it later," I thought. And promptly forgot.

Annelie found it for me. What a helpful little girl!

And she was pretty pleased with herself and her purple fingers and tongue.

For violet lovers everywhere, here is an Etsy tribute filled with lovely violet goodness.

This original piece of art is a 5x7 watercolor and sumi ink and is just fabulous and can be found in the shop Karen Faulkner Art.

You can find this gorgeous watercolor flower as well as other beautiful watercolor flowers at www.karenfaulknerart.etsy.com

The pendants found in the shop Art Under Glass are just gorgeous!! I am pretty smitten with this lovely and glittery violet posies pendant!

This pendant and other equally fabulous ones can be found at www.artunderglass.etsy.com

These Purple Passion korkers by Winklepots are sooo adorable. I have several of Winklepots korkers, and I can honestly say they are just the cutest hair accessories for little girls.

You can find these, as well as gorgeous handpainted outfits for children (with korkers to match!) at www.winklepots.etsy.com

And last, because I can and because I will... here is a shameless self promotion. My Fruity Purple Cupcake print is pretty delicious, if I do say so myself.

You can find that in my own shop, Elegant Snobbery.

Enjoy!

I LOVE reading about what your little ones get into, and I LOVE even more getting to see the photos of it. So much fun!

And as beautiful as all the violet pretties are, your painting is the best.

Too bad that this didn't happen over Easter weekend. People would have thought that she colored too many eggs!

How did you know that purple is my favorite color...but not smeared all over a little girl! How ever did you clean that up?

casserole said...

What a riot!! When I first saw your post, I thought you had doctored that photo to change the color of her little tongue. Too funny!
