You Are Really Something...

Yes, 
YOU are really something!!!




Prov. 31:22 
"She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; 
her clothing is silk and 
purple." 




PURPLE

The most precious of ancient dyes made from a shellfish found in the Mediterranean Sea. A total of 250,000 mollusks was required to make one ounce of the dye, which partly accounts for its great price. It was highly valued within the nation of Israel. 

Used in several features of the tabernacle (Exodus 26:1, 27:16) and the temple (II Chronicles 2:14); the color of royal robes (Judges 8:26); the garments of the wealthy (Proverbs 31:22; Luke 16:19); the vesture of a harlot (Revelation 17:4); and the robe placed on Jesus (Mark 15:17, 20). 

This color symbolizes kingship and royalty.


As I mentioned Monday,
I have been loving the colorized photos on
Shorpy

These women's portraits that were colorized in purple garments
reminded me of the color
representing royalty.
This led my thoughts to the 
quote I read recently above
by C.S. Lewis.

I felt these women looked very royal.
; )


I read on the website
that people color these photos as 
a hobby.
Then they submit them to the
'Shorpy Historical Photo Archive'.
What a great hobby!
I LOVE this!
I will be sharing some of my favorites
from time to time.

Yes, 


YOU 

are really something,
my beautiful 
and royal
little
cutie-kins.
: )

And I love you!
Sending love your way...
