I Heart Red













I was going to title this post...Red Hot Love...
...but I thought you might get the wrong idea!

It's freezing out and another snow storm is being predicted...
...don't you just love red ?!

It warms everything up!

...February is American Heart Month...

... red is my Mother's favorite color...

Happy Valentine's Day!...almost
Are you ready?
:)

Oh, yes, I love red too. One day last winter when all I could see was black and white, I took a country drive and took pictures of all the red I could find, then I made an accordian book called Seeking Red and gave it to a crafting friend. Your photos are lovely! Sherry

Linda said...

Well Laura
If you love Red, then I love Red!! haha,, only joking.. Red is one of those colours that sometimes is the only colour that can give you a boost.. I only wear Red lipstick... when I do wear it.. and it took my friend years to convince me to do so!.... some lovely images here.. and I want to eat those cherries!! xx Julie

I love some "touch" of red in houses,this color brings good energy.In provence we can't help using red and yellow in spite of the grey fashion...

Floss said...

You have my initials there! What a nice surprise to see them (Floss is a nickname, although I love it).

Your reds are wonderful and I am full of plans but not quite ready yet! Need to get a move on...

I'm not a big fan of red, but your reds are definitely lovely, Laura.

Theresa @ 612Riverside said...

I love red too, it keeps finding it's way into my decorating... a little on a pillow, in a tablecloth, etc. I love the little high tops, too cute! I just bought Somerset Life yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed your piece. I would have never guessed that you just started blogging in Feb. I thought you were a seasoned vet! Your photos in the magazine are gorgeous, like your blog it was a great read and full of inspiration. Theresa

Jane said...

Red has always been one of my favorite colors. It's been the accent color in my kitchen and dining room for 8 years now and I still love it. Great pics.

Jacqueline said...

Dear Laura,
Red IS the colour of Valentines Day .... I love your photographs especially the first one.
About 10 years ago I was obsessed with the American Colonial, Appalachian style and collected anything with the Amish hand and heart.
Little red shoes, embroidery and cherries...how refreshing to see these items in a Valentines post...not what you would normally expect, but very apt.
I was telling Julie that on sunday, I was watching the Antiques Roadshow. A lady had brought in a child's pair of shoes from the 1700's. She had found them in the wall of her 16th Century house and inside were a packet of seeds. Apparently, it was a common practice to help fertility. The lady was having an extension to her home and she cemented into the brickwork, a pair of her son's shoes, a packet of seeds and a newspaper. I thought ...Laura would LOVE that story !! XXXX

Crystal said...

What a cute red post. My favorite color is red too. Red hot love, would definitely have raised some eyebrows, but that;s ok :) I am not completely ready for Valentine's day. I sure hope it quites snowing, so I can finish.
Thanks for sharing
