Alphabe-Thursday Colors

For Alphabe-Thursday's summer school the color is red.  I chose to look for things around my house that were the color red.  I was surprised.   I like red but I guess not so much when it comes to decorating. 

Cherry Tomatoes


Mom's magnets that are on my fridge


Campbell's little soup bowl with cover.  I have two


A cooler

One of hippies many red tool boxes


This is a picture of roses that are on  a plastic cover for the electric roaster.



When your done here check out what others came with for the color red on Jenny's blog.  I'm interested to see what everyone decided to do.  http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/2010/07/alphabe-thursdays-rainbow-summer-school.html

Nice reds especially the tomatoes.

Cheryl said...

I looked around my place too. No red anywhere except for food. I'm in awe that you cover your toaster oven. Totally dumbstruck.

My favorite red shot is the tomatoes because their color is the most saturated. We need to hang out some, Viki. My favorite color is red and I could infuse some into your life! :)

Like another commenter, I never thought of looking under my nose around the house! Such wonderful examples of Rainbow Red in yours!

Of course I love the Campbell's soup bowl because that is my last name!! I have 2 Campbel kids prints that my mom gave me years ago...I love them!

Cheryl D. said...

I'm not surprised you had a hard time find red. It's such a dramatic color, that it's hard to decorate with in a home. It is a beautiful color though!

Pondside said...

We don't have any tomatoes that are as red as that yet - yummy!

Teresa said...

I have that same barn magnet--school fundraiser. What a lot of nice red things you have around your house!

This was an interesting post for me. I looked all around and I do not have much red in my house either.

It's fun seeing how the little "pops" of it brighten up a room, though!

Thanks for linking this happy post to Alphabe-Thursdays rainbow summer school!

A+
