    Purple Party!

    I have a ridiculous collection of purple things in my house. My favorites are bags, natch.



    My beloved Dakine bag in the back, along with Ultraviolet travel tray, MCB in Plum, and Aubergine DOP.

    This is my first Aubergine bag, and now I am pretty sure that I need to acquire more. I LOVE that color.

    Love, love, love this! I love purple and think your picture is the best. It made me want to dig up my old purple outfit photo so they could be next to each other. Might have to take a new picture tomorrow, as I have since added a Plum/Wasabi SCB to the mix.

    Ooh, let's have a purple smack down! I feel inspired to put my collection together. I'll see what I can do to snap a photo of my purple madness.

    I have a double OP on order - now you have me praying it turns out to be aubergine!
    Collections:
    Work EDC: SE + S19 + DLBC
    Leisure: SCBs, MCBs, FJN, Swift, lots of YSSs
    Travel: WF + Pilot or SA, both with SE/SCB
    General organisation: More pouches, stuff sacks and cubes than you can shake a keystrap at!
    Favourite TB colours: aubergine, forest (sniff!), linen, wasabi, UV
    Hoping for: A new dyneema colour for YSSs; a Linen Side Effect; the return of Portable Culture!

    I've known about TB for over a year and have owned my aubergine/steel WF for about 8 months, but It was just last month that I realized my car matches my WF! Although Saturn calls the car's color plum, it's a better match to TB's aubergine. And a hint of wasabi with my basket. :-)

    And then there's the rest of my TB stuff. (Please forgive the gratuitous wasabi. I had to include it. If you could see my living room, dining room, and kitchen you would see a pattern developing.)

    hamitee, Purple and green go so nicely together, it's no wonder you love them both so much you surround yourself with everyday items in both colors! Are those Eagle Creek folders? Looking at your pic, I realize I "forgot" to put any of my yarn stuff sacks, travel stuff sacks or smaller Organizer Pouches into my picture. It figures, UV ones are all in use!

    Yep, those are a 15" and an 18" Eagle Creek Packet Folders. I too have a few more TB items in use elsewhere (pocket pouches, key strap, 3D organizer cube, ... ).

    Gah! I forgot to include my poor Ultraviolet packing cube shoulder bag. Poor little guy! I'm living the purple goodness being shared here. More, more!

    I'm going to have to wait until my backorders turn up before I can join in the fun - I'm awaiting a black/aubergine/wasabi SA and an aubergine/wasabi SE, to add to my modest purple collection!

    After I put everything away I realized I left out a clear Organizer, two clear bottom Yarn Sacks and three or four Eagle Creek items, if they count.

    List exceeds allowed characters. So I'll just say I'm plum and kiwi loving FOT!

    hamiltee, from the looks of your TB collection you're not much of a Go Bluer! Where's the love for Navy(or Nordic)/Solar???
