Do you see the red?
These are shots of the bookcases on either side of our television armoire in the living room. Can you tell I love red?
These were unfinished bookshelves we bought that we painted white several years ago. As I was painting them I thought, I don't want just boring old white backs on these so I decided to paint them a Laura Ashley red called ________. No luck on the name of the color! Worker Bee just went out to the garage to check on the name - none left I guess.
The backs of our library bookshelves are painted a Laura Ashley green called verdant green that I still love!
Like the milkglass urns? I actually have 3 of them on that shelf. I was at a sale in Atascadero this past May and I kept walking by these and then walking away. Finally I bought one of them. Then I thought I have to have a pair, so I bought a second. Then we were in the car and I told my mom, Sewing Bee, that I had to go back for the third one if it was still there. Yeah! It was.
Did you notice the brown apple on top of the books? One of my students made that for me about 13 years ago when I taught sixth grade. It has always meant a great deal to me so I keep it at home and I have it on display all the time. That kid is about 25 years old now! Yikes!
Below that is another one of Amy Jo's paintings. I like having the tray/bowl of faux pears in front of the painting of a pear.
Then I have a small collection of green pottery. I just love red and green even if it's not Christmas.
And finally, I have part of Worker Bee's globe collection sitting on the cutest gingham suitcase I picked up at the Susan Branch store when it was still open. That was just the BEST place to go shopping and get inspired. I only went there a few times, but I loved it and miss it. Maybe she'll open it up again sometime.
Whew! That was a lot of talking! I better take a sip of my iced latte. Would you like one or maybe you'd prefer a nice hot one with whipped cream? Come on over any time and I'd love to treat you to one.
Thank you Sue for hostessing the reddest party in Blogland!
