Friday Photo Shootout

Friday already? I've been so busy this week I never even posted last weekend's trip to Neussargues. I'll try to get to that this evening, before I leave on yet another weekend of adventure (to Paris, yeah like we haven't seen that before. But if the weather cooperates I hope to do a special series of something quite cool, so do stop by on Tuesday or Wednesday for that).
.
Well, between the weather and work and being sick part of the week, it's been difficult to find much in my town that is my favorite color: RED. The flowers aren't out yet, aside from a few snowdrops and daffodils, and they aren't red.
One red thing in my town is this rug I bought in Marrakech a couple of years ago. (Here decorated with my cat Sienne.) It's very thick and soft, and I really like that it's not one solid red, but changes shades randomly as the rugmaker changed dye-lots of yarn.
Sienne is playing with her favorite thing: The Shoelaces.

Not impressed with the offer of shoelaces, Bandersnatch just wanted us to finish our little photoshoot and go away.

For other Shootouts, visit here!

I had my colors done, the therapist said dark red and dark blue and dark green are my colours. I am a winter person, so I wear them most of the time. After she told me, I like these colors.

Have you had your colors done?

What a richly colored rug! Lucky cats. And shoelaces too! A cat's life can't get better than that!

Jama said...

Rich and beautiful color! I'm game for all colors except maybe black and white.

Yes RED cars and RED dinning rooms - your carpet is wonderful. I would put it in my house but Camillo wouldn't - I would paint every room a different color - camillo likes white ... this is a very big difference in comfort zones.

That rug looks luxurious, no wonder Sienne is onjoying it. I love Bandersnatch's grumpy look. My cats know that expression very well when it suits them.

You know I spend at least ten minutes playing with your virtual cat, now if I could have one like that, only bigger with no allergies attached I would be happy!

My colors are autumn, back when 'Color Me Beautiful' book and stuff in the 80's were popular. I was a model in Dallas for that colorist and writer...

My mom's rug and kitchen were avocado green...yes, she really liked green!

I always wanted a room painted red!

I love Sienne so cute!! Happy weekend!

Favorite color: Yellow

Barry said...

Obviously Sienne has good taste in backgrounds for glamour shots.

Your carpet looks very soft and comfortable, but then cats seem to have a way to make just about anythings look comfortable.
