five things in red

i was this close to talking the mother in law into getting a red tartan cape from muji. THIS close! i might just tip her over the edge if we go once more... it could be the holidays or the love in the air but i've been particularly inspired by red this week!! 

here are some fun things around the house in red. 

a fun project for the twenty fifth...

a red-ish (fuscia to be exact) ribbon medal. 

i wore it to work and was told by a co-worker the students won't take me seriously.. oh well.. i'll celebrate in my house then!

intricately handmade by auntie cynthia to welcome the year of the dragon!

red hearts.

shh.. muu is having a sleep-in with his security blankie.

    she is madly creative. and the best part is, her handicraft is so intricate and perfect to the details!! im floored!!


  3. red, green, blue, white--these are the popular colors for Xmas here in US. We are not so "color-conscious" in Russia. Maybe more gold and more sparkle...

  4. Aww, red always seems to bring joy during the holidays. :] I think purple can bring a similar feeling though! It's not a traditional holiday color...but it's nice and bright. :D
