Obsession with Purple!





Vintage Feather Clip {Twice Loved Vintage}


          It might be due to the fact that I was born in February, or it might just be my personality, but I love purple!  I have been in love with deep, rich, royal purple from the time I was a little girl, and when I found out that my birthstone was amethyst, I was completely and ridiculously hooked! After all, folklore claims that amethyst denotes power, healing, wisdom and spirituality, and who wouldn't want that?  In ancient times, cups were made from amethyst and were believed to have the power to prevent drunkeness.  Soldiers wore a piece of amethyst into battle for protection.  Kings and queens treasured the gemstone as far back as 2500 B.C.  And, is it true that amethyst can control evil thoughts, help hunters capture animals, and make you shrewd when it comes to business matters?
          This wanna-be princess says "yes!"
