I See Red

IMGP0316

        In this wonderful anticipation stage of the year, before Thanksgiving and Christmas, my eye sees red everywhere, especially in my home. 

        Regardless of style or trend, or even the beauty in whites (milk glass, white pumpkins, white foliage), my eye naturally goes to all things red.

        It doesn’t have to make sense either.  Red eggs?  Of course-

        Even my all-time favorite home fragrance travels through the air in red (Aromatique The Smell of Christmas).

        Red toile + an ornament?=perfect.

         Mercury glass in red? Of course.

My Dad used to say -- you should have some red in every room of your house! It's always been his favorite color.

Morning, Laura! Oh, I love red too and you've shown some very pretty reds! Love the toile ornament! You've changed your header and it's very nice.
Be a sweetie and have a blessed Thanksgiving,

Hi Laura,
I will be doing reds too,
I do both actually.
I love the toile ornament, that has your name written all over it.
I want to see the whole room. I am looking forward to more pictures.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my little story, I just didn't want to put up a bunch of pictures, with nothing to say...I know it was a cinderella story but it also is just a little blog post isn't it? Thank you for your time.

I am seeing reds, and pinks, and greens and golds! I have almost finished my decorating too, but was trying to wait until after Thanksgiving to post pictures of them.
