Reds in my week

Monday, January 31, 2011

This post linked to Ruby Tuesday. Are you shopping for Valentine's day? Have you looked at the Christmas clearance items? Oh so many pretty red ribbons and wrapping paper at 75% off. What a good buy for Valentine's day and who would know?

Thanks for visiting me today and God bless.

That blazing red pitcher would wake me up in the morning, for sure!


Tonight, my dear, I’m seeing red—
Or is it puce or rose?
Whatever’s going round my head
Is tingling all my toes.

My heart, my dear, becomes inflamed
With passion sore ablaze;
Perhaps it is because I miss
Your glowing, crimson gaze.

Whate’er the cause, my face is flushed
Like a ripened cherry,
No longer healthy, but inflamed—
See the vessels serry*?

A certain sanguine aftertaste
Is clinging to my tongue,
For I have kissed your ruby lips—
To which the claret clung.

*serry – (archaic) to crowd closely together

This is definitely the time to buy wrapping paper, Judy. I always buy my Christmas wrapping paper(and year's worth of birthday presents/wrapping paper for the kids parties etc) at this time of year.

I once had a newspaper that was red.

All the best, Boonie

I have not had the chance to buy anything red lately. Your bargains are so pretty!

That is a great collection of reds Judy. That's a good idea about the Christmas clearance for red paper and ribbons.

Those are great stuffs, and I particularly like the red lantern.
