Now this is just a couple of a set of purple ornaments. I just love purple and like a lot of bower birds I like shiny things, so these ornaments fit the bill. I sort of messed up the sparkles I put on these ornaments. I am not the most patient thing and they don't call me the bull in the china shop for nothing. It was fun trying to capture the color of these bulbs. Although they started out the same color they for some reason turned a different color this year. Maybe it was the heat in the attic that caused the paint to discolor. I still like them, the actual ornaments that is.
