Flaunting My Red!!!!

I don't have much red around my home, which is surprising because I love the color red - it goes so well with other colors, like yellow (have you seen Kristen's home?? GORGEOUS!), white, sage green, gold. During my search I was able to find a few things like this cookbook/recipe binder I got as a gift from my sweet Mother-in-Law.

I just purchased this vase last week (remember my post about my shopping spree?). It came from Ross, one of my favorite places to shop for accessories. It's more rust than red, but I'm gonna count it anyway!

I have to brag a little about this next one. I just love this rug. It's in my kitchen beneath the table and chairs and it's a nice contrast to the olive walls. But the best part is, I paid just $20 for it at Lowes (they have awesome clearance stuff). It measures 5' x 6' girls!!! $20!!!!
Chloe's butt made an appearance for the pic (she's such a ham!).

Last but not least is this lamp shade from WalMart! I put the tassel on there for good measure (and it's red!).

Hi kim. Love your reds! I too use alot of red throughout my home. Thanks Kim for stopping by and asking about my sister. She is still critical and not out of the woods, but it seems like things are slowing turning around. She has alot of people praying for her...the power of prayer cannot be measured! Huggy Hugs!!
