Red checked cloth.
Red tomatoes, strawberries, cherries, rubies... Poppies!
Roses are red, though violets never are.
Red its a holiday color,
Red as in stop,
Red as in anger,
Red as in love.

"What is Red?"
Red is a sunset
Blazing and bright.
Red is feeling brave
With all your might.
Red is a sunburn
A spot on your nose.
Sometimes red, is a red red rose.
Red squiggles out when you cut your hand.
Red is a brick
And the sounds of a band.
Red is hotness
You get inside
When you’re embarrassed
And want to hide.
Fire-flicker red –
And when you’re angry
Red runs through your head.
Red is an Indian
A Valentine heart,
The trimmings on
A circus cart.
Red is a lipstick
Red is a shout
Red is a signal
That says, “Watch out!”
Red is a great big
Red is the giant-est
Colour of all.
Red is a show-off,
No doubt about it –
But can you imagine
Living without it?
My favorite wine? Red.
If you are ever in Beaune, France you must stop at Christine's Winery:
French antique textiles.
But cannot cut.
Which make creating something nearly impossible.
Yet adoring pretty piles they do make.
The radishes are here. Three weeks early.
The French who have a love affair with dining have a certain way to eat radishes.
While looking through my 90,000 plus photos for RED I stumbled upon my dear friend Erika's daughter Amelia. Oh sweet memories rushed in... several years ago they came and visited us, the above photo is from that time.
What is your favorite color of roses?
French Husband do you know mine?
I bet he doesn't. He will say, "You like violets?"
I would say, "The question is what color of roses?"
In which he would shrug his shoulders and say, "Purple?"
I love him.
Zinc stencils that I sold awhile ago. But! I found some more last weekend!!
Where to go for a classic, red checked cloth, old time feel French meal?
I have heard that it is impossible to find the toile de jouy's copper transfer plates (at the brocnate)... one day I hope to find one.
What color is your front door?
How I would love to have this one be mine...
Our front door is brown as in wood. French Husband says he doesn't want me to paint it. I would LOVE to paint it. Burnt Orange. But if I paint it he will not be a happy camper. I daresay he would be pretty upset. I am still working on him to change his mind.
My niece Molly with a red bow!
Red Rose jam... I made it twice with Annie's instructions. I also made rose vodka, it was divine. Oh God was it good!
