Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Purple

Purple

As this is a fun foto challenge my photos this week are some that I took for my doll blog. I am trying photograph all my Barbie outfits for my own benefit, it helps me keep them in order, but it is fun to share them on the blog with the dolls modelling each outfit too. Sometimes I make up a little story about the “fashion shoot” or try out different backgrounds.

The Fashion Fever series from the early 2000’s were often colour themed and after pink shades of the purple family seem to be the most popular colours. Here are a few of them.

The Colour Purple

I like purple. I wear it quite often. In fact I am wearing it right now. Hubby likes it too. Back in the seventies when everything seemed to be purple, orange or lime green we had a purple bedspread on our bed. We still have a few purple things around the house and in the wardrobe.

What else do I like that’s purple? Cadbury chocolate of course. The wrapper not the chocolate. I dont think I would eat purple chocolate.  We have a Cadbury factory right here in Hobart at Claremont. It was decided to build it here in Tasmania because we have the best milk.

As much as I like Cadbury chocolates my favourite toffees are Nestle, Quality Street, the ones we always buy for a special treat.

The best toffees ever.

What else? Our local team in the T20 Cricket Big Bash competition is the Hobart Hurricanes-and what colour do they wear? You guessed it! Yes their sponsor was Cadbury’s for the first year or two of the competion. Here is a page from my cricket album.

I have purple stuff in my doll room too. This is the last of a batch of purple nylon yarn that was bought for a jumper that was never made. It has been used for doll and teddy clothing over the years but there is still a bit left.  I played around with Picasa a bit for this but it really is purple.

There are a lot of dolls and teddies wearing clothes made from this.
