Saturday Photo Hunt ---- RED






RED


I'm not known as the lady in red for no reason at all. It seems RED is my favourite colour and the number of red items in my wardrobe is rather impressive, even I have to admit. So here are a few examples, starting with my favourite hat, my Rodeo Red Akubra, made in Australia, of felted rabbit fur with an inlaid feather hatband for decoration, bought on the internet. I also have it in black for a less splashy look.


Now nothing livens up that little black dress more than a three quarter length
red linen jacket and scarf, don't you agree?


My Italian red suede handbag, all ready to go.


You know I don't seem to have any red shoes at the moment. I guess I'll
just have to remedy that. But here are some gloves.


Finally, something I bought for myself one day, on a whim. A beautiful red Bopla dinner plate. I have just the one, for the store went out of business soon after and I've not seen it anywhere else in Vancouver. It makes a lovely serving plate.



I did enjoy this week's Photo Hunt!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

Oh Jmb those items are lovely! I too like red - my living-room is decorated in a Chinese flavor with touches of bright red accessories. I too have a little red felt hat I wear in winter.

My daughter would LOVE to have that purse. Lovely plate you've got there.

Nice collection of red for our theme this week.

Colin Campbell said...

You have a tremendous sense of style JMB. I love the red Akubra. I have a boring black utilitarian one. Useful on days like today when it is 37 degrees, the first day of summer.

Dragonheart said...

Must admit that I'm not a clothes horse myself. So the picture I most appreciate of those that you've put up -- and what a very nice pic it is! -- is of the red Bopla dinner plate. :)

I love your collection of RED. I remember having a red coat that I loved and wore it with a black velvet tam. Red is fun.

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Fabulous, jmb! I want the hat - and the gloves - and the bag! You'll just have to come to Sicily to get some shoes! Auguri

You've managed to display your clothes etc. so beautifully. Red is a favourite of mine too, but I have nothing as stylish as yours.

A true lady in red! It is good that you can also wear your favorite color. (It's mine too!) Makes a lovely outfit. Have a good weekend, and thank you for the kind words you left me, I love all my beautiful little grandbabies! Watch for pictures of a new one, due in April. (A boy!)

You are the lady in red! You are so stylish that you put me to shame. You must be beautiful in all of those.

Since we seem to have this "red" thing in common, I want to know where you bought the hat. I went to the link but had no luck there.
