Ah well. C'est la vie; n'est-ce pas?
I had to do this one, though. My friend Tara has been waiting since forever for me to continue this little cyber-tag bloggers game. So here it is.
The idea is to photograph 7 red things in your home and then tag your blogging friends to do the same.
So here goes. Here, in no particular order, are a few of my favourite red things
Teaghan's crayon roll - a super duper handy crayon keeper loosely modeled after this tutorial.
An image from Little Red Riding Hood - my kids' favourite fairy tale.
Our red Fropper - bought on clearance at Toys R Us and worth every penny. The older kids can still ride it and Emers scoots around the house on it yelling "wheeeeeeee!"
The red walls of our bedroom. Sexy, wha? Now if only we could get the kids to stay out.
It's obvious who gets the fancy clothes in the family, isn't it? My favourite shoes are old worn-out LL Bean clogs, Teaghans are these gliterry red Dorothy shoes. This is actually her third pair of these, one came in a hand-me-down bag and I've since found two more pairs at the Thrift store. These are about 2 sizes two big but she loves clunking around the house in them.
My kids' first collaborative artwork done on red paper, of course. The H and T are done by Harrison, the blue dots by Teaghan and the yellow scribbles by Emers. The cutting and gluing was a dual effort by Teaghan and Harrison.
My very best friends, if you go by the amount of time we spend together. Does it make me feel better about sweeping and mopping about 20 times a day because my broom and mop are red? NO! But it does make them easier to find when they're hiding under the couch.
Last but not least, a poem by one of my favourite poets. You've probably come upon this one before
so much depends
a red wheel

Now it's your turn Entropy Girl, Valerie, Kia, Darrell, and Cathy.
