brought you some red

bringing the red seems just in time for valentine's day
clever wine tags spotted on etsy
perfect touch for bringing some red
spotting lots of red storefronts too.
love this one I illustrated a few years ago
red book covers too.
 some red in one of my favorite Tina Steele paintings.

What sort of red are you planning on bringing or giving this Valentine's day?
My husband asked me, "So when is Valentine's day?"

If you are reading this, it is in fact tomorrow!
Are you ready?

I'm ready. I already have a card for my Hubby, and I will bake him a cake in a heart-shape pan. That's my version of Valentine's Day. Also, I will wear pink-my shade of red.

We went to a fundraiser yesterday for a sweet little 2nd grader in town, who has a fast aggressive cancer. We made an extra donation in place of exchanging gifts. I will be serving breakfast in bed for my love to start his day off.

oh to receive a painting, wouldn't that be great! I would settle for just some quiet time together. Mrs. Blandings has some great suggestions today for husbands with no ideas

I love the wine tags, and Tina's painting are so lovely.
I do hope that your husband comes home with a little something for you tomorrow!

I love all this red, but your illustration of the J. Mclaughlin shop is my favorite. I'm just wondering...which store is that?

Acquired Objects said...

Love those wine tags I need to get a few since we always take red. I hope your husband got your message!

Love that painting and your illustration! I was given that Parisian Chic book by a friend - love!

I'll have a special breakfast for all my Valentines. Tomorrow night, we'll light a fire, sip some champagne and nibble on chocolate. I have a card for Grant, as we're giving each other a renovation this year! Ha ha...I know you understand!

xoxo Elizabeth

Love that painting! I've gotta get busy for V. Day!

Perfect colour for those of us here at The Hedge Patricia. I wore a little red mini dress (Thai silk with cute shoe string straps) on my first date with MOTH 19 years ago - it worked. Hope Mr PVE gets his Valentine's Day mojo happening for you & soon!

Love your red picks!
And so glad you included that abstract painting -- it's a fave of mine but for the life of me I could not find a source. Off to look at the rest of Tina's work.
