It's True Colours Thursday again. This week's theme is SCARLET, so, play along visit our lovely hostess, Blue and we hardly think she's a "Scarlet Woman"!
Scarlet (from the Persian säqirlāt) is a red color with a hue that is somewhat toward the orange. It is a pure chroma on the color wheel. It is redder than vermilion. Traditionally, scarlet is the color of flame. It may also refer to the color of the blood of a living person.The first recorded use of scarlet as a color name in the English language was in 1250
The Wall In Our Den
The crown of the pendent light over our bar
One of our Rugs
Another Rug in Our House
The Tip of Mommy's Boot
A pair of mommy's shoes
Another pair of mommy's shoes
And, another pair of Mommy's shoes - my goodness she really seems to like RED shoes! There are more of them - but I won't continue to bore you with her many shoes.....
And a bag for mommy's shoes - but the shoes in the bag are NOT red - they are GREEN! Can you believe it?
Apparently Scarlet on the Graduation Robes are very popular in England - BLUE can tell us more about that!
The Cardinal's hat is Scarlet
So is this Cardinal's hat! hehe - We're CUBS fans here - their hats are BLUE
"Nothing modest or matronly will do for this occasion!" [we think this gown is more garnet than scarlet - but we couldn't resist being southern and all]
Rhett Butler demanded Scarlett wear the gown to Ashley Wilkes' birthday party. Despite the fact that it was supposed to do nothing more than make Scarlett look like the improper woman she was, it has continued to be a fashion icon and has inspired countless reproductions.
With its feathers, rhinestones and low-cut bustline, it became a plot device within the film as Rhett sought to humiliate Scarlett by having her thrown from Melanie Wilkes' home.
Although my mom would be the one to dress like Scarlett she is definitely NOT a Scarlett - She's a Melanie all the way! [you might have to be southern to understand that one!]
UGA the mascot at Georgia always wears Scarlet Red - that's where my daddy went to school. I have one too but I can't find it.
The Ribbon Around Cartier at Christmas is Scarlett Red
Daddy's scarf is Red - Mommy has on red too but you can't see it!
AND, FINALLY ...... my snuggle cuddy is Scarlet Red!
