Seeing Red!

I'm going to take a break for a few days so I'll leave you with these posts. I say that, but can I really stay away for a few days? We'll see.

But don't forget that I'm having a Cottage Charm Giveaway, which you'll see on my sidebar and also on my 5/1 blog post. You just may want to go there and leave a comment to win some of these gorgeous faux roses. Your choice. ;-)

Let's talk a different color for a while. While I love pink, and it's my favorite color, I'm also very partial to red. Can anyone resist an old red barn-type house? I doubt I could.

Or this darling little shed with roses growing around it? Ooooooh, squeeeeeeal!!

A whole village of red.

I found this little painting of a red craftsman-style house fetching. Reminds me of some of the houses in Berkeley, California.

This is a house somewhere in Europe. Looks a bit Norwegian to me.
One of my favorite living room settings.

Sorry these are so small but I didn't take the pictures. But I just love what these people did with their old water pump on their back patio. They painted it PINK!

  8. That red shed with the roses is wonderful!! I was going to tell you to have fun, whatever you're doing in your time-off...but I'm pretty sure you always do that. Me too...that's because we're blessed!!

  9. Hi Connie, I love the wonderful red pics. Recently I painted a red train case from Elizabeth Arden with pink roses. Still thinking if I should sell it or not. It may have to go in my red guestroom. LOL!

    Going over to your giveaway post and thank you for entering my giveaway. Good Luck sweets!

    Have a special Mother's Day!
    Blessings to you, Celestina Marie

  10. Love your blog, love your shop, love red (& pink)! Beautiful post. The pick of the red check sofa looks like a favorite I've bookmarked from an old spread on a MO Farmhouse... It's a crazy busy time on our farm but I hope to post more home pics at my new blog as soon as I can clean up faster than my kids can messy up! You kindly share so much here that I'l be back soon to park myself w/a cuppa... Thanks for sharing!
