red

roses are red.
and so are a few of my favorite color things.....


a reupholstered chaise lounge
a warm red cardigan
raggedy ann
 my dad's old wooden chair, with a bit of paint
 small pot for morning oatmeal
 a no longer used house key
a repainted dutch cupboard
an iPad clutch
my had for years small wallet
 the clicker to quiet the students, instead of raising my voice
a radio flyer wagon, used to hold returning school books on library day
  the word FAMILY

  2. I love the chaise lounge. The large gingham look is bold, yet very tasteful. Did you reupholster the chair? Refinishing furniture and reupholstering old furniture were my hobbies many years ago. I love things like that! Makes me want to go find something in a thrift store to refinish or reupholster...LOL.

    1. darlene, when i took the chaise in to be redone.. they weren't too sure about the red gingham.. but i was certain... in the end, even they loved it. thought it was a good choice.... i love the chaise, too. is it hard to reupholster? seems like it would be.
