Touches of Red ~

...in my little world, my Farmhouse just wouldn't be complete
without a few touches of red to warm our home...

like the delicate crocheted edging on a vintage table scarf...
or
the quiet calmness of red checks on this lampshade in my breakfast nook ~
and the old red paint on the Heart-topped candle holder
...that i've filled with home-grown Sweet Annie.


an old checkered towel hangs from my red pegrack in our Pantry ~

and
how the light plays with the reflections on an early oil-lamp base...

even my little butter-churn is made from redware!

and who could forget or resist old soft, heavy quilts....

with their wrinkles mimicking mine
...and how they hold memories of strong & hardworking,
yet loving hands....
Little touches of red to brighten, warm & excite our farmlives....
...small plays of color to celebrate our past and
especially today:
Happy Saint Valentine's Day to you all ~


Blessings from the Farm...

I love red as well. I made a wall hanging about 6 years ago in yellow and red, and it changed my color pallet. The old quilts are lovely I seem to want to buy them as well. HUGS MARY
