Five Minute Friday: "Red"


The color red means different things to me.  It's one of the team colors for several of my favorite sports teams (the Alabama Crimson Tide,  Jacksonville State University, the Atlanta Braves).  Red is also one of my favorite colors to paint with.  You can add so many things to red and get other gorgeous shades.  Red and white make pink, red and blue make purple, red and yellow make orange, red and green make brown...ok, ok, enough of the preschool refresher course.

Red can have some not so great meanings to me.  I see red sometimes when I get angry.  My eyes turn red at the change of seasons.  But I like red lipstick and fingernail polish.  Red is one of the best colors for me to wear.  So, it's not all bad.

The song phrase, "Sin had left a crimson stain.  He washed it white as snow." means the world to me.

Painting with red.  I love to paint red roses, red cardinals, and shiny red apples.  Red means Christmas decorations.  Red is my favorite Kool-Aid flavor.  :)

I want to decorate with more red.  My dream kitchen and powder room will have red walls.  I want to plant big red roses and amaryllis in the yard.  I like red.
