Favourite things Friday

Good Afternoon and welcome to Favourite Things Friday with SHAY. My 'favourite' this week and bare in mind I have a few photos, is my favourite colour which is red through burgundy to rosey pink. I am instantly drawn to this colour and it's variants and shades. One of favourite music bands is called "SIMPLY RED" as well. Here are a  few other favs.....
Beautiful red roses, a cranberry cut glass cheese bell.....
This print hangs over my stairs and makes me happy every day when I look at it. Certainly not expensive but I never tire of looking at it...

And then there is red work stitchery of course. Also Christmas, threads and fabric. In fact I have to make myself not always choose fabric in these colour ways. If it is combined with green my other favourite then oh dear I am a goner....In fact friends point out  these combinations to me as they know I love them so much.
Sweet little red birds...
Then we come to china. I would be here for ever if I had photographed all the red and pink that lives at my house.... so  there is Cranberry & White...

Of course "Old Country Roses" which is why it is featured on my blog header.
and the earlier "Country Roses"......This one is on my wish list for one day when I win lotto.
My latest in lovely red/pink things is a gorgeous paper weight with dragonflys all over it which was a Christmas gift from my lovely friend Helen.....
So that is a sample of my favourite this week. I do hope you're not seeing red by this stage. I fear I am developing a terrible 'over the top' personality trait and it's all your fault.
Before I go back to my quilting I just wanted to share a lovely Aussie comment made to me in conversation the other day and I wonder if you know what it means...."All of us girls just love a good  old mag!"  Not the best English I know. Hhmmm? I'm sure you do.

It means to have a good old chat....."like chattering magpies". I hadn't heard it said for so long and it made me smile and think how much I love our 'Aussie-isms' which sadly are slowly being lost.
So have a good weekend and even though it's been one sided, I have enjoyed having a 'good old mag' with you.
Blessings Michelle xx

  4. Red is one of my favourite colours too..I'm instantly drawn to it. I had a red and pink bedroom as a kid.

    Love the china -especially the Royal Albert. I bought some of those pieces and gave them to my sister for Christmas several years ago.
