All Things Red

Marilyn at 819 Ohio/Building Our New Old House asked us to Get the Red Out.
So here is my attempt to blaze a trail of red:

"Red is the ultimate cure for sadness." ~Bill Blass

"When in doubt wear red." ~Bill Blass

"Better a red face than a black heart." ~Portuguese proverb

"Red roses are for love triumphant." ~Bill Blass

"A careful driver is one who honks his horn when going
through a red light." ~Henry Morgan

"Make a remark," said the Red Queen, "it's ridiculous to
leave all the conversation to the pudding."

"Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own
skin.  That, or a kick-ass red lipstick." ~Gwyneth Paltrow

"Artists can color the sky red because they know it's blue.
Those of us who aren't artists must color things the way
they really are or people might think we're stupid." ~
Jules Feiffer

"An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere,
while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight...The truly
wise person is colorblind." ~Albert Schweitzer

"Give her two red roses, each with a note.  The first note
says 'For the woman I love' and the second, 'For my best
friend'." ~Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Wonderfully racy red! I especially like your Red Queen quote. Happy Valentine's Day, Junebug.

Kaytabug said...

Goodness gracious you have a lot of red. I take it you like the color?
I love those socks, how very brave and bold of you to show the undies!
I enjoyed the quotes!

Interesting, now my sister in law swears by her lucky red undies. They help her win prizes at the raffles.

Love it! Especially the bowl full of red.

And your banner photograph is just beautiful!
