Flaunt Your Red



Flaunt your Red Party

I'm back ya'll! Just in time to Flaunt My Red!So here we go...This is a mah-jongg game box that sits on my living room mantle. No. I do NOT play mah-jongg. My sister plays. My neighbor plays. But I do not play. I can not get them to teach me to play. They say they do not have enough life span left to teach me. I do not seem to have the gene necessary to play mah-jongg. I am missing the mah-jongg gene. But I DO have the game, with all the lovely tiles in a pretty red box.

This is a tassel I bought one year at the Junior League of Plano's 'Neath the Wreath annual Christmas Bazaar. I had to have that little polka dot chicken!

My favorite summer purse. It is several years old but I still enjoy carrying it.

Lisa, great red things in your home. I had to laugh about you missing the mah-jongg gene. I don't have the Mr. Linky gene. :)

Your box is beautiful. That tassel is adorable! I have a similar Brighton purse. Love my Brighton!!

Thank you very much for participating in Flaunt Your Red. Come back on Sunday for the drawing.

Hi Lisa,
I just love it when you come and visit my blog. You are a kind hearted friend. Thanks for your nice words.

Your REDS are fabulous!
That is without a doubt the cutest little "chicken" tassel I have ever seen. ~Precious!
Love the pretty heart candle as well.

Happy FYRED Day!
~Melissa :)

LOL I don't have the mahjongg gene either...or the bridge gene. But my mother loved to play mahjongg years ago. I sold her set at the estate sale. Now I'm thinking I should have kept it and put the tiles in a pretty jar. Oh well it's not like I would have ever used them.

Hi Miss Lisa!
I love mahjongg! :) It's harder to spell than play! That is an awesome set. That copy of Black Beauty is lovely too. I don't think I have ever seen that edition.

Hi Lisa,
Thank you for your kind comments. It was a luscious box to wrap. My husband is a dentist too. And I don't have the game gene either, all I can do is wrap! Great blog.

You know what? I'm 52 years old and have never learned to play one single card game! And I don't even know what Mahjong is. Who cares if you can play! The box is gorgeous. I love your red things. So cheerful to look at. I'm loving this flaunt your red day!

I adore your montage of reds! I have red in some form or another throughout my decorating. My greatest find was my living room couches. The perfect combination of my three favorites...red, pink and French Country.
Sweet wishes,
Sara
