Turns out I was waaaaay off on the color of this VB bag. I went today to the Hallmark near me to do a little drooling and it turns out that the name 'Simply Violet' is exactly what it means. I guess the monitor on my laptop adds a lot of blue because I saw it as periwinkle. Purple is still very nice but it's not -- y'know, periwinkle.
In my dream life Vera Bradley calls me up and begs me to go and draw paisleys for them. Even if they offered me a dollar a day I'd say yes. The problem with Vera Bradley is that in picking a favorite, it's well near impossible. It's like eating one potato chip -- something I've never been able to do until I saw this year's spring line. This is A. periwinkle and B. paisley. 'Nuff said!
If you, or an artist you know, has a perfect paisley for Paisley of the Week! please leave a comment about it on my FB page, send me a tweet or leave a comment here. If it's someone else's paisley, please get their permission first :)
