    Depends on the shade.

    Lavender- soothing and mellow.
    Bright purple- zingy and an interesting hair color
    Deep purple- regal and kingly/queenly
    Magenta- A purple/pink wanna-be! Hate that color!

    Yep. I'm random.

    Did you know deep purple dye from whelks was used to dye the Roman's cloaks?

    The Color Purple was a very good movie featuring Oprah and Whoopi. I may not care for their politics but they both played good parts.


    Now if you mean the color then I LOVE the way Horsefeathers described it.


    Purple is usually a sign of extreme intelligence, good looks, and a fabulous personality. [​IMG]

    Yeah, when someone says purple, I automatically think of PurpleChicken and "What did he do, now?" [​IMG]

    Unless it's my DD saying, "I wanta wear the Purpoh dwess!" then I just think, "Awww" [​IMG]

    Purple, like horsefeathers said, depends on shade. It's regal when in dark shades, also very calming for me. I used to have a plum colored bedroom and loved it, sigh, I miss that room.

    I can't believe you asked, I just painted my coop dark purple with dark green trim. I'm now trying to figure out a third color for accent. I intend to make shutters. I wish I could post a pic. I'm not real happy with the shade though.

    Purple is the perfect color for a minidress to go dancing in, it says I'm confident enough to wear a non black dress, without screaming "notice me!!!!" like a red one.

    As for purple chickens, I suspect it's a dye-job.

    Quote:Don't tell my wife that or my kids, they all think I'm an idiot. I expect there are a few here who do too. I even had a dark purple suit once. They helped me pick it out so it looked good.

    Maybe my dark purple coop means my chickens are intelligent, naaaahhh!
