Rednesday Wednesday #3 spreads over to Thursday

Rednesday spread to Vintage Thingy Friday at ColoradoLady and, seems to be seeping over to Diann of the Thrifty Groove for Thrifty Things Friday Well, you RED it flows into everything............
Welcome to the Rednesday Wednesday Blog Party!

Boy, I am so happy you stopped by today for  Rednesday Wednesday. As a thank you for coming I have 
Been celebrating all month with  a special giveaway for all those who participate in my link-in party or just leave a comment during the month of September.. The lucky winner will receive .this......................

If you missed last REDnesday Just go HERE for the'RED'lights..hehe

My favorite time of the year is Autumn. The crisp fresh air. the aroma of wood burning, the colors........
Spring is like a watercolor and ink drawing..all soft and delicate, fluid, Summer is an acrylic work. Some texture still a little fluid, but bold...bright. Autumn is an oil painting...textural...muted colors, but brightness in many strokes. Autumn wraps you in color that warms and exhilarates.
When I first joined the Rednesday party and then years later thought of hosting REDnesday I always saw REDnesday   as the kitchy red of the 40's and 50's and..the color in vintage magazines that makes you tale notice of ads and articles  making you smile that wistful smile. 
Now as a hostess I am rethinking my REDS. with Autumn here there are some many more shades of RED.
The color red comes in many shades and hues as we see especially during Autumns changing palette. 
Here is a list of just a few
  • blood red
  • blush
  • brick
  • burgundy
  • carmine
  • China red (see vermilion)
  • cinnabar (see vermilion)
  • crimson
  • fire engine red
  • flame (see scarlet)
  • Indian red
  • madder
  • maroon
  • rose
  • rouge
  • ruby
  • russet (a reddish brown)
  • rust (a reddish brown)
  • scarlet
  • tomato
  • Venetian red
  • vermilion

Now, I do have a reason for mentioning this because some have typed and said they  like popping by to check out the RED posts and they'd  love to join the party, but they have no red....well, there's a game my Mom played with me...okay  we still do, but anyway.............. called Riddley Rifddey It starts out with this versem Riddiley Riddiley I  DeeDee I see something you don't see and the color of it is....RED......

Thanks for coming Melody. I have an American address, (just in case). I've won 3 times in the past, so no problema...hope I do now too! I'm from Astoria-Queens, NY originally, my parents are Ecuadorian and of course, I have dual Nationality here. I married my hubby who always lived here and I've been very happy with my life here, among lots of Americans that have found it to be the best place in the world for retiring. My Bil has a profesional rose farm and exports to Europe and the USA, yes the Ecuadorian roses are the most beautiful in the world, they're usually bought for all those European Royals's weddings.. I don't say so, it's what the magazines say.
Have a super weekend.
