Palette: Celebrating Purple

On this final day of February I wanted to share all the pretty purple things that make me happy.

Purple was once considered a precious commodity in textiles. The earliest purple dyes date back to about 1900 B.C. It took some 12,000 shellfish to extract 1.5 grams of the pure dye. Being the rarity in nature, purple hues became a symbol of nobility and privilege. Today it is one of the most loved colors of the rainbow! Join me in celebrating this beautiful color!
