RED




I usually say my favourite colour is light blue - a particular light blue! Well now I might need to change it to RED!! There has been a lot of red happening around here lately. Photo the other day showed the kids painting a wall in Luca's room. There was enough paint so we now have a red wall in the entry. Then this chair needed covering and it would seem I am having a spotty phase at the moment! Yes- they are my shoes. The red wall meant that I could pull out this table I decorated years ago from its hiding spot and have it on show! Then we have the red quilt top that I made on the weekend. Ready to be sent off to be quilted - there is no way I have the patience and time to do them myself!!





And if you are wondering what the choice of footwear is in our house this summer - it is just a matter of which colour.

Love your table, chair and shoes. Can I ask where the shoes came from - I'm looking for some casual flats in orange or red!

I am a recent red convert myself. I always thought it wasn't for me - I was red enough already (I have red hair you see). But after seeing a picture of myself in dark orange I have changed my opinion - I now see how washed out I look in pale pinks and browns!

Nutmeg - the shoes were about $12 on sale from a cheapie shop at Brand Depot (Canberra Airport) - I bought the red because the orange were not avail. in my size!!

I love all of the red! It looks fantastic - and how cute is the spotty chair. Cute shoes too - so tra la la!

The redness is great, so vibrant. Love the chair especially.

Does that mean your blog decor will be getting an upgrade sooon?

The shoes are such fun! I badly want a pair! What a great photo! All your red is looking very vibrant and cheery. Your 3 little cherubs did a good job helping with the wall. What great fun they must've had.
You can imagine how much I envy those weeks you had at the beach. I'm positively green!!! It looks so beautiful..the sand, water, pebbles, even the lizard!
How sad to have to say goodbye to Kurt and Berta after 3 months. That must've been heartwrenching for all. I hope they return! What a lovely photo of them! I can imagine how 'alone' you're feeling with all 3 gone.
The face painting is wonderful! I like the blue lips :)

All that red is luscious. Especially the table and the quilt. I'm loving that quilt top! I never used to be a red girl either, blue was my favourite colour too, but the past couple of years it's been slowly creeping into the house, along with its sister, pink (which I vowed would NEVER happen).

Crocs don't really do it for me - but I have to say that you've almost converted me!!

Red is a great colour. A friend once told me that if you're feeling a bit flat, putting on a red top or something red close to your face (other than a hot poker!) will really boost your look. Apparently it makes you glow!!

I love those shoes!
