Welcome to Austen Promises and my first “purplicious” post!
Well, here I go, writing my first post about purple stuff. Not sure where this will go, but I have to give it a shot. 🙂
Everyone who knows anything at all about me knows that I adore purple. There are so many lovely purple things out there. I’d love to have them all, but that little thing called “money” often stands in my way.
I love to wear purple clothes. I love it so much that I have fretted when I didn’t have any clean, and have commented to others when I was looking at clothes that “They don’t have it in purple. I’ll pass.” I have been told more than once that I can’t always wear purple. My usual reaction is, “Watch me!” 😀
The second book I ever wrote was called Lilacs & Lavender. It had a flower theme and was supposed to have been part of a collaborative effort or boxed set of books. But, the boxed set never got off the ground, so I published it on my own.
In one of my kitchen cupboards, I have a package of dried lavender (affiliate link) that a friend brought me from a tea shop she visits. I have used it to make lavender lemonade in the summer, and plan to use some to make tea this winter. I have to make time to research it first, so I’m guessing it’s not going to happen right away. LOL The lemonade was good, and it’s supposed to help with headaches, I think. I really should make it more often. 🙂
I love lavender flowers, and have considered getting some for my flower beds, but they have a strong scent and I have bad allergies, so I’m not certain I will. However, I adore them anyway, and if I have to, I can just tape pictures of them up on the windows. LOL
I was at a baby shower recently, one held for my youngest niece, and the gift for attending was soap from Bath and Body Works. I went through the entire box of soap bottles until I found this French Lavender scented one. I love it!! <3
Do you like lavender? Is it your favorite, or do you prefer other scents or no scents at all?
