Nicole tagged me. This time the instructions were to showcase 7 photos showing red around the home. As I took my pictures I noticed I actually have a lot of red accents around our house. Maybe, that's because Nick is a firefighter, and so we have collected a lot of
"fire memorabilia" over his 34 year career!
Hence, my 1st photo shows some of the red fire pieces we have!
2 - our red fireplace wall (color name: Red Red Wine)
3 - the red cat door stop my mom make (she used to make all kinds of fabric decorations
and sell them at craft fairs-she's a very creative lady!)
4 - red on one of my sewing baskets (Mary Englebreit designs)
5 - a red Yankee Candles-love the smells of Yankee candles and have several other colors
(Nick doesn't mind when I burn these candles since the flame is within the jar--
he has always HATED regular candles, as they can so easily cause a fire!)
6 - a red Cat pitcher (Catzilla Design by Candace Reiter)
I actually have a lot of these cat pieces around the house!
7 - a gorgeous dark red Antique Vase trimmed in real gold which
belonged to my grandmother and was handed down to my mom and then me.
So there you have it! In case you didn't know or hadn't figured out, I am a collector!!! It seems over the years I have added to many collections - fire decorations, cats, Precious Moments figurines, fabrics!!! Love my collections!!

My turn to tag 7- but if anyone else would like to play, please come back and leave a comment with your link to your red showcase!
How about Annelies ; Kristina ; Kelly ; Peg ; Mary ; Kris ; Emily
Any takers?

Hey Karen! Love your red fireplace - I wanted a feature wall that colour in our lounge room when we painted (it's apple green and would look GREAT with a red feature wall!) but my beloved is a bit more conservative and vetoed the idea - oh pooh! :0) I have lots of red stuff, as it's the accent colour in the lounge room and kitchen, so just have to remember to round up photos. Thanks for sharing your red pics! Bear Hugs! KRIS

What pretty red you have in your home! Goodness me, I've been thinking about it -- I have a bunch of red now for Valentine's Day decor -- does that count? If not, I'll have to do some more thinkin' LOL! Thanks for the fun tag!
