Shades of Red

Hi Guys, I must say it is about time for me to do another Etsy Showcase, for the first one for this year I believe red is a good theme choice! Besides as you know Valentines Day is coming soon! Red has been a constant in my life and I think I was born to be dressed in red! There is a picture of me wearing a red dress at a very young age. From the start I think my mum put me in red almost from the day I was born, at least at 18 months old, my big sister got into the act and bought me this cute dress. The shades of red I have picked that I am most attracted to are deep dark reds blood, garnet, and burgundy through to the bright reds like cherry reds then to pinkish reds.

When I am doing these themes I like to find objects I would like to have or that are appealing pieces. I like them to interest my readers as well. You must look at these wonderful stores; they have lots more delightful items in their collections.
The stores in this Etsy Showcase are:

“A little fact on red- a warm colour is the colour of energy, excitement and vitality. It is also a good grounding colour. Red is a powerful healing agent for healing diseases of the blood and circulation. It will also help with depression but it can raise blood pressure or anxiety. Red, used in a large space, can be welcoming, energising and invigorating, but it can radiate aggression. Red, in a small space, can be cosy, intimate, or claustrophobic.” Internet source

  5. I love etsy showcases (or features, or treasuries, whatever one calls them)! I just started doing that myself, and seeing more and more of it is a great inspiration, I just love that we can help each other in this way - and I mean, most of us love all things handmade, not just the stuff we do ourselves... :)

    Caught your blog on one of the forums in Etsy, for sharing blogs. Here's mine for consideration:
