Mississhippi's Madness

A place to share my creative pursuits

Colourful Fridays with Robyn @ Daisy Quilts – RED!


So the colour chosen for this week is Red. It just so happens that this is my favourite colour, so I was more than happy to contribute this week. The trouble was deciding how to thin down the number of pics, so that it didn’t fill up my whole blog ! lol

I had a little helper, his name is Hotdog. A week before Christmas a few years ago my daughter told me she was going to ask Santa for a red soft toy puppy dog as a friend for her white one. Santa came through with Hotdog on Christmas morning. What a champion he was! Hotdog is showcasing my favourite red mug and cup and also my mini photo album that I carry around with me in my handbag.


Flowers in my garden – some of them from this year’s crop, some from last year’s. The bottlebrush is a pic I took this morning in the early grey light – they are just beginning to bloom.

Around the house…


Some photos with red, but different reds…

Another artists paintings that I love…

 These poppy paintings are by a Canadian artist, Laura Tetrault. She paints with acrylics mostly and does some beautiful evocative work. She is also an extremely generous artist sharing her work through her Big Thank You Project, which is how I came to have the first of the two paintings. I loved it so much, I visited her Etsy shop and bought the second one to go with it.

And because the season is almost upon us (and I’ve seen decorations in the stores…

A few little decorations I made last year to hang on the tree. Very rustic – and that’s is being kind. I made some for my daughter’s best friends at pre-school as well as a few for us. Embroidery is not my strong suit! lol

And so that ends my contribution to this RED day. It is so grey and overcast here today that all this red has brightened my day considerably. Hope you have a bright day too!
