Red,

Despite the fact that, in my work, I seem to naturally gravitate towards the colour pink, at home, I am actually a real fan of the colour red.  Our couch is red, most of our bedding linen is red or has some red in it, and all my kitchen accessories are red.

So, I guess, a red flower was a natural progression...

and something I'm going to keep going with as I think 'Red' will be the theme of my next Etsy shop update.

I have already planned on some christmas birds which will feature a vintage christmas card with each, and also am working on some cotton reel pin cushions, all of which, fit rather nicely with a red theme.  Before then though, I have a disaster to put right, in an attempt to get a better photograph of this latest flower this morning, I kicked over my button box, spilling the contents all over the floor, now that's going to be a job and a half to sort out!

Sorting out your buttons will, I'm sure, reacquaint you with some buttons you'd forgotten you had! That's what happens with me.

The flower and vase are lovely - red is a wonderful colour. x

The red flower is lovely - I much prefer it to the pink one (although that was rather nice too). Like you, I also seem to have lots of red bits in my house.
