Ah, decorations

Purpley festive decorations

I like the sparkle and the color of these decorations. Ours run much more in the red, green, gold vein, with a few rogues of other colors. But none are purple and sparkly.

I used to love the tinsel when I was a kid–not the tinsel itself, those thin bands of plastic with a foil layer somewhere, but the effect of the tinsel, all glittery and unlike the rest of the year. Now I encounter more sparkle more often in every season, which I enjoy.

    We’re were at a friend’s Easter egg hunt when Dave was about 13. A five-year old girl showed me the egg she’d found, and I replied, “What a pretty, sparkly, purple egg!” Dave’s cynically commented, “Too many adjectives, mom.”

    Sounds like an engineer (Dave).
