Color me RED!

Avast Matey...

Pirate Language for 'What's Up?'


Remember to answer your phone today with a hearty

"Arrgghh, what be your business?"
"Avast, matey!"
"Ahoy there!"

Today I celebrate all things red!
Perhaps it started with my choice of mug for my morning cafe'-
black and white line drawings of Winnie the Pooh characters,
with the inside of the mug a bright true red!

Perhaps it was the water cup that I picked for today -
a black commuter cup with the red symbol of Lucent Technologies.

Perhaps I am inspired by the red 'Batman' phone that Michael keeps on the desk, covered with a glass dome, just like Commissioner Gordon has.

Who knows what quirk in my brain went red today?

so, am I seeing red?

"Seeing red" is American slang for 'being really mad or angry'.

You can't think of red things, without thinking of the red rose -


or Dorothy's Red Ruby Slippers -

and of course, I have to add at least one red costume from Liana's blog -
I have posted the 2 base paper dolls that fit this costume numerous times in previous blogs - search for 'Liana's"

Here are a couple more red vintage song sheet covers:


a red cardinal for you -

One red milk maid page from a vintage Alphabet Book -

Is my face red yet?

(American slang for 'I am embarrased')

("Boy, my face sure is red!")

Think I'll end today with a Happy red Mary Poppins poster!
