What is in a 10 foot diameter 
of where you are right now that is purple 
or some shade of purple?

  1. I am in my home office and this is where I draw with markers and paint so there are many shades of purple that surround me. One of the eggs I have painted stands out as being the most prominent purple item nearby.

  2. I am also in my home office and my iPhone with its purple case is right beside me - charging.

  3. A card my son made for me in Kindergarten for Mother's Day, which has a cut-out of a purple butterfly at the end of a rainbow along with flowers and a beautiful sun. His photo is in the center of the card and it's just adorable.

  4. I have a game box called Braniac that I bought for my grandson years ago and which I now use as a weight for a fabric for a background. It as a plastic cover in the shape of a brain which is purple. I did have to look hard and long for something within my eye.

  5. My Dupatta (An Indian shawl) hanging in my closet. Purple is my husband's favorite colour. He says that it is soothing to his eyes.

  6. Well, I really had to look for this one, Annie. And you know I love to "see." I'm sitting at the kitchen counter and finally I spied a purple plastic spatula that I have in a pitcher beside the stove along with several other cooking utensils. I'm afraid I'm not a purple person. However, if my Granddaughters were here, I could have found purple immediately.

  7. Absolutely nothing! Not even my socks.

    Everything is blue, grey or cream. What a dull person I am.

  8. I also am in my office and almost despaired until I found a tiny book on a shelf above my head.

  9. In my office: the speaker I attach to my computer when I listen to music, its charging cord, my exercise ball, and a guilt on the sofa.

  10. Considering that I LIKE the color purple, this took some looking. There is a Sanford paper clip packet in my desk drawer that has a purple label.
    Note-to-self: Buy some irises at the store today and put them in this room.

  11. Not a lot in this room. The vacuum cleaner tubes and some book covers.

  12. I didn't have to look far. To the right of my computer is a cartoon a friend of mine made of my former dog Mighty. The background is various shades of purple.

  13. Some threads in a throw-over cover are a shade of purple as are some wooden beads in a multi-coloured necklaces hanging on a peg amongst many other multi and single-coloured beads.

  14. Oh...and I just noticed a still- life painting of flowers in two vases that I painted a few years ago, and which is hanging on the wall here in front of me where I sit at my computer has a couple of purple flowers in it. And right beside me on my desk, next to my keyboard is a heavy glass bird-shaped paperweight, and I've just noticed it has lavender flowers somehow incorporated in it with a little grey bird perched on the branch of the lavender flowering bush (if that makes sense).

    See what you've started, Annie??:)

  19. TO ALL: How was it to take a look around and be a little more aware of your environment while you are on your computer? I enjoyed seeing what you see. For those who didn't have any purple, go get some:-)
