As I took the photos for this post today I realized they all have something in common, red. Red is the color of the season. Red is bold. and brilliant. It represents danger, anger and blood, but it also represents love and happiness. Think of a beautiful ripe strawberry, or a brilliant red rose or heart. I love red but have to say I do not wear it much. I am more of a gray person, more neutral not, as extreme or bold as the color red. However I have a lot of red in my house, red rugs, red cushions and I drive a red car so maybe I am bolder than I think I am.
Red in combination with green, it's polar opposite on the color wheel, represents Christmas. Red and green are evident everywhere right now. I love green, the color of trees, leaves and grass. I think green helps red become more balanced, less flashy if you know what I mean. Here is some red and green or you.
Red holly berries against a brilliant blue sky.
Notice the difference of the red berries against the sky, they don't pop out near as much as the red berries against the green leaves.
Red poinsettia's with beautiful green leaves blooming in my garden. This was a gift I received for Christmas last year, it has survived the hot, Florida sun.
Two red Ohio State scarves framed against a green background. They are ready to be wrapped up and opened on Christmas morning.
The red scarf on the left is made from Lion Brand Wool-Ease made for my son's friend who will be staying with us over the Holiday's. The scarf on the right is from Gignasco Tyrol yarn, made for Mr. 20 year old. Super quick projects that will hopefully keep two young men warm this winter in Ohio.
Max even wears a red collar, a Christmas gift from his oldest brother last year, an Ohio State Buckeye collar that is.
Hope the red you see today is filled with love and Christmas Spirit.
