Flaunt Your Red Party! (Random Reds)


Hey guys! It's time to flaunt your red! What a fun event hosted by Nancy at http://southernlady-nancy.blogspot.com/ Pay her a visit for a list of other participants. when I was going through my house to hunt for red I realized I've showed you guys almost everything! lol... I still have a few things left, but I will save them for a later post. I know I have this arrangement posted already, but I added those big red passion flowers. I found them at Pier 1 the other day and bought a few stems. Aren't they beautiful?!


This is my favorite lamp. I found it at a closeout store for about $50 and snatched it right up!


This top treatment is a long story and is totally different than what I had in mind, so I will spare you the details. Let's just say after lots of thought and a little fabric glue, this is how it turned out! lol....


Hubby and I in our red about 10 yrs. ago. Now the wrinkles are setting in!
A sweet little girl across the street picked this rose at her grandmother's house for me. She knows how much I love flowers and helps me plant sometimes. It looks pink, but is really bright red.

Bye for now! I will be participating in the Porch and Patio Party hosted by Barb at http://gritsglamour.blogspot.com/ on May 5. I have lots to show you and I'm anxious to see everyone else's patios too! It's going to be fun!

Hi Kristen, :)
I enjoyed seeing all your new REDS! The picture of you and your hubby is adorable.
You do look so young but you are still very young! :)

The Red flowers you added look so pretty.
The curtain with the center tassel hanging is my favorite window treatment you have shown.
It's very unique and elegant. Love it!

Thanks for entering my RED giveaway! So many bloggers liked my Dorothy sign I came up with the idea to tie it in with FY RED.
I always appreciate your kindness.

I'll email you.
Some things changed in the last few days.
