Alphabe-Thursday

R is for Red
Red has been my favorite color for the last few years.  Here are some of my favorites.
I have started buying a set of this red Fiestaware when it goes on sale.  I have owned the cobalt blue Fiestaware for over 20 years and decided I wanted to add the red to my collection.
My favorite Miche bag cover.
Cannot live without one of these anymore.
I found this red table at a resale shop.  It was already painted with the perfect red paint.
We bought this couch after moving here a couple of years ago.  We needed some furniture because we moved from a very small house to a much larger one and had a lot of empty space.  I was totally surprised when hubs agreed to this color.  I'm a lucky lady.  Linking up with Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday

I know what you mean, when I built my house I scrimped other places so I could have a Wolf stove because it had red knobs....

Great pics!
It's so nice to see some splashes of color in the washed-out-white blogosphere! :-)

Have a wonderful day!

What lovely touches of red Brenda. I have a painting I purchased when I adopted my son that is all black and white except some tiny touches of red. I love it and those tiny touches of red in the painting completely capture me. It is a fine color! :)

I so totally love the cherry glasses, the red fiestawear and the couch... fiestawear is my favorite dishes. I have a red set, it is also the color of my deviled egg dish. So fun.

Well all your red dishes added to the blues will be very patriotic! I like the stars and stripes flag bits and pieces you have scattered around the rooms too.

Red is such a great colour and your splashes of red are fun and full of personality.

I loved this post! The dishes in the first picture just made me smile! They are so happy. And your red table and couch is really fun! I never really used to love red but as I get older it seems like it gets more appealing every year!

Thanks for such a happy stop on my little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's Letter "R"!

I love the touch of red in the decor of your house! It is such a happy vibrant colour. Great post!

I love red too, even though I haven't really used it in decorating. I've heard some one say that every room should have a little bit of red. Your dishes are so pretty and the table is a great find. Love the sofa too. What a beautiful, cheery home you must have.

I love the red and greed contrast! Makes me want to post a red blog day myself.

I'm a strong believer in colors, as far as our personalities and what we're going through. I used to be a blue/green gal, but now I'm an orange/yellow/lime green lady. I suspect God is still forming my personality, and things are definitely looking brighter!
