RED Vintage Find

You may observe a connection between my posts. Some days blogging is a random exercise and I allow my mood and inspiration to direct the topic for the day. But today you may note two passions coming together – vintage finds and the colour red. I found this divan – I think that is what you call it, a sofa bed of sorts. I remember my parents and their peers sporting something similar in 1970s.

What do you think? I would love to know more about its origin. I am sure that the reason I now have it is because it is RED. It will be great at the beach house.

I see RED

When I look around our home I see red, everywhere. It is a favourite colour when it comes to decorating. Red Vintage cases, throws, cushions, table runners, flowers, French enamelware….this list is endless. I love red lipstick and jackets and shoes.

So it was no surprise that when we saw these red shoes at the very talented Honor Bradbeer’s exhibition a few years ago, I was taken. I really like the way she uses ink to create and disguise; to bring objects to life and make others hide, masked by the depth of colour.

We are having our home painted right now and it is a process of rebirthing a Victorian dame that has been lost underneath years of grime and bad decoration. We have chosen Aalto Endless¬†for the exterior and the door will be Dulux Red Box. You see as I welcome you to my home I want you to see Red too….

Emily + Mick = LOVE

My little sister tied the knot so to speak last Sunday. She married on my parents 40th wedding anniversary. She wore red, her gals wore black and there were an abundance of white roses. Sounding very Deb Conway for those of you who remember the song!
The ceremony was simple, sweet and in a lovely old picture theatre. After some champagne and canapes we traipesed across the lawn to BLUE the restaurant. Wonderful food and cool music.
It was good to see family and in particular see the wee ones play.
