Five Minute Friday - Red


It's time for the "Five Minute Friday" blogging post. The inspiration comes from Lisa Jo Baker


What you do is set your timer for five minutes and write whatever you want according to the prompt Lisa places on her blog every Friday. Then you go back, link your blog and give support to those who posted before you. And, we connect on Twitter with #FiveMinuteFriday.

Ready.
Set.
Go.

Red.

I never thought I'd like the color red. But, with a black and white kitchen the red pops. I love red accessories. I have red mixing bowls. Red storage containers. Red dish towels. 

I dream of William-Sonoma accessories. I put them on my wish list in Pinterest. I love picking out items that I can have in my dream kitchen.

The rest of my house doesn't have anything red. Our bedroom is blue with soothing ocean themes. Our great room is filled with beach and ocean items. Shells. Pelicans. Sea birds. Paintings of ocean themes. Great herons. I love that room. We used to have a 400 gallon saltwater aquarium in it with lots of fish and rock. It was so soothing to look at. We kept it up for over ten years until we decided to take it down and add more bookcases. The one thing our house is lacking is more bookcases. I have books piled on the floor, tables, and open space available. I'm looking forward the wonderful cedar bookcases that will be built.

My office is a tranquil light green. My office is a place of balance and peacefulness for me. I have big boards full of inspirational quotes and pictures. 

Red. It has it's place in my life. It pops.

Stop.

Thank you for your comments. I love my home and how we've decorated it. It's a solace for me. My place where I can be completely safe and relaxed.
