I really do have a soft spot for the colour red.
I wear lots of red.
I adore red lipstick.
One cannot have too many pairs of red shoes
(or shoes in any colour!)
I love strawberries, cherries...
in fact any red berry will do!
And the couch in the sitting room is red too!
(How's that for a little impromptu poetry?)
Maybe I love red so much because...
it reminds me of Christmas cheer and joy...
So this year Mia Bella Passions 'red' sitting room is decorated:
red & white.
The mantel displays a collection of snowmen
(now that is wishful thinking isn't it as my Christmas is a summer Christmas.)
'Air New Zealand' have made this funny Christmas video;
- watch it and you will understand my longing for snow.
The wreath is decorated with berries lights and antlers.
There is of course a sack or two.
And a rust covered HOHO...
(find out how to make faux rust here.)
I've reused music sheet angel wings from a previous Christmas - find out how to create here.
There are loads of white, and red ornaments.
Some shop bought, others crafted.
And yes that is a Bearington Bear atop of the tree.
There's a painted carafe and berries...
(find out why I had to paint my berries here).
My favourite handcrafted ornament this year is the white scottie dog.
with the felt reindeer nudging in at second place.
I hope you have enjoyed a peek into my summer red & white Christmas.
