The Sky is Already Purple - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade



"The sky is already purple; the first few stars have appeared, suddenly, as if someone had thrown a handful of silver across the edge of the world."



I have always loved this quote from Alice Hoffman’s novel, Here on Earth.  It is so very evocative of watching the sky turn dark here in the Desert Southwest during this glorious time of the year.  When the sky is transformed for a few minutes into a magical velvety bluish-purple color, a multitude of stars come out to to play, twinkling away.  Then the sky will finally slip into a depthless black and even more stars will appear . . . and, hopefully, a shooting star will streak across the sky.  Another reason autumn is my favorite time of the year.



Spooky Glow in the Dark Halloween Dog Bandana Handmade by Donna of SewAmazin



To honor those few minutes of sky color, the theme of this week’s Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade is the color purple.  You will find a fabulous selection of ten handmade creations in all shades of purple created by talented artist friends.  If something catches your eye and you want more information, either click on the photo or the link below the photo to be taken to the item listing.  I hope you enjoy each and every beauty featured here.
