Wow, what an overwhelming response to my red dress - thank you!
I'm in serious red phase at the moment. Actually I'm forever thinking about red as (and you may well have gathered by now) this is my all time favourite colour. Depending on the shade, it evokes a myriad of memories and emotions but I like it best in those wonderful hues found on antique French textiles, some verging on brick but mostly the faded poppy shades. They are so uplifting yet never harsh. Another reason for the red moment is, of course, the fact that Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so I've been adding a touch of rouge to the shop.
I personally don't hold out much hope for my own treat on the 14th though. I once told my husband that if he didn't surprise me with flowers or gifts at any other time of the year, then he shouldn't bother on Valentine's Day. Miserable of me? Yes, yes I do realise that now of course, and believe me I have paid for that rash comment .. not a card, flowers, dinner, nor anything else for that matter, has come my way on the 14th February since!
So go on then, rub my nose in it why don't you .. how might you celebrate?
PS - you mustn't feel sorry for me, the penny did drop about the remaining 364 days!!
