Tomato Red

I like my red as bright as possible.

What I always have called Tomato Red.

This is what I mean!

Bright, clear, fun, jazzy.

Lots of examples here.

On the shelves of my very favorite things.

Red, red, red.  And more red.

A photo of these shelves was on the title
page of Jessie Walker's Country Decorating book.

Nothing catches the eye more than red.

Are you a "red" fan.   And what is your favorite color?


  1. Yes, I am a fan of red! It is my favorite color! I use vintage red accessories in my yellow kitchen so it's nice and cheery.

  2. I so adore those wooden fruits.Complete adoration.Thanks for sharing.

  3. Red is my favorite, too. It is the accent in my mocha and white living room!

  4. Oh, totally red...I've loved it since I first used a red crayola and saw what it would do.
    I don't have as much red as I used to, but it's my favorite color...
    coke stuff is my favorite...
    have a great weekend..

  5. Red is my color, to wear and to pop up anywhere.
    When I was a child I had a wooden apple that looked like yours, and when you opened it there was a roulette wheel inside with a little ball and the wheel would spin. Any chance any of your apples are like that?? I've not seen one since. (long time ago :>) )

  6. I don’t have much red in my world except for blossoms outside. This collection looks just beautiful...

  7. All of these red items you've highlighted bring back memories of my childhood - thanks!

  8. I do love red...I love to wear it! My favorite color of "things" is probably seafoam/ little bits mixed with browns and white.

  9. All passionate women love red! Beware of painting the walls in your kitchen or dinning room red. It makes you eat more. Hmm. That's why so many restaurants are painted red. Red goes with everything! I love it!

  10. I've always been a lover of red and add sewing items and I just go crazy! Judi

  11. Yup, it's gotta be that tomato red. Although a nicely faded out red will trick my trigger as well.

  12. Gasping...Swooning...All that DELICIOUS fruit.
    I've re-stocked my Etsy store and linked it to my blog...thanks for the inspiration/motivation!
    Can we talk about international shipping?

  13. Your posts are so inspiring, Joan.
    Keep it coming.
    It's snowing outside again, sigh, and the sight of this yummy red is a delight today!
