{red alert}

Love
I am going bold with red today
{the colour of love}

Cinnamon-Candy Cider
*
add 1/4 cup of hard cinnamon candies
to
1.5 litres of apple cider
simmer over low heat until candies have melted
serve warm
*

bouquets of red tulips

we must be mad with Joy...to have such things
about us."

sweet red flats
guaranteed to add a spring to my step

I must say
my day has been
rosy
surrounded by such
happy hues

Love red hots. Although, when I was little I stuck one up my nose and it wouldn't come out. Boy, did that burn.

Those shoes are darling! Such a Lovely post! :)

T's Daily Treasures said...

Fun post and red is one of my favorite colors. It abounds in our tv room. Living in the desert, it is a must (for me) to have color at home. The cider sounds fab but we can't even get cinnamon candies around here most years. Haven't even seen conversation hearts this year. Boo! Have a fantastic Friday. :) Tammy

You are the master of color and images. Though red is not my favorite color, you have intrigued me with the lovely objects you photograph and the beauty you share transcends tastes in color!!!! You are gifted my dearest!Is this you to my right on the sidebar, jumping up in capri pants and the green T-shirt? You are sooooo lovely dearest! Anita

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

Sweet Koralee, let's see.... need to find the rights words to bring this decently.... hmm, it's hard to find those words. So, I choose the easiest way to say: I really need to have those heavenly red flats!!! My gosh, they are so so cute! Want Spring to come, want to wear my linen clothes again in all these fine soft colors... A pair of these breath taking flats underneath and I'm all dressed up.
You brightened my day again (and again and again and ....). Put a big smile on my face! So this weekend you will probably also be completely in Olympic heaven? Enjoy! And please do enjoy Valentine's day!!

Happy Thoughts!
Saskia
