amazing job as he temporary replacement!!! I mentioned last month that the front rooms

of my house are predominantly RED!!! I love red!!! I love color!!! These are a few of my

red goodies!!! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!!

~I want to apologize to anyone that noticed… my blog identity crisis!!! I thought I would

try something light and crisp for summer!!! After my daughter commented that it looked

nothing like me or our home… and what was I thinking?!!! This is the new and improved

Mille Fleur!!! All goodies from my house and my favorite color!!! It is here to stay!!!

Stacey said...

Cathy, your home is beautiful. I'm over using that word these days when I visit blogs but sometimes it's just perfect. I love that you have wallpaper!! I love your fabrics and pillows. Do you sew? That's a skill that I've got to learn. All of my softies are sewn by someone else.

I'm so glad I found your blog. You are so welcoming.

Cathy, I love your reds. You decorate so pretty. I just love your style. That rooster picture is awesome! I haven't tried picnik yet. But, I will. Thanks for the info.

What a gorgeous post, filled with beautiful things that flaunt your red. I adore your header too. Your interior design is beautiful too.

I love all of your reds! You have such a beautiful home, and I love that red toile pillow I spy on the dining room chair. Love the new blog header, very nice. Kathy

Candy said...

I am happy to join in on this RED party, for the first time. Your shade of red speaks to me. You do have some pretty pieces and I am enjoying looking all around your world. Nice collage on your header, too.

Flauntin' RED,

Tee said...

You have impeccable taste, Cathy. Love the new blog look. Wish I could figure out how you did the photo collage header. I haven't had much luck with that (maybe a severe lack of patience?!)

Lisa said...

Your tableskirt is gorgeous but I think my favorite is the toile pillow in your french chair! Very pretty! Thanks for a lovely post!

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

Happy FYRF! I'm totally digging your red checked table skirt and that lampshade.
All your reds are great!
Thanks for sharing and have a fab day!

Crystal said...

Hello Cathy, So glad to be visiting your blog once again. I was MIA for a few weeks, so I don't know about your makeover??? I think this one is great.
Love all of your reds and decor, as usual.
Thanks for sharing!

Kathleen said...

Lovely reds, Cathy..
Happy FYRF! Enjoy the weekend..

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Cathy,
You know what I haven't bought any MC yet. I do love it now thanks to you my friend. I just had a snack from my cookie jar you sent me. I am still just tickled over it. I wanted to send you a written "Thank You" note and noticed it didn't have your home address on the packaging. Please know my good intentions were there.

I think a MC giveaway would be a fantastic idea for your blog giveaway! Let me know if I can help.

Have a blessed weekend.
~Melissa :)

I do love all of your red 'goodies'! They are all so pretty and elegant. Pretty lidded pot!

Jermaine said...

Hi Cathy,
You really know how to flunt your reds! Such great treasures and all put together so beautifully. I love the mix of the checkered tablecloth and the toile pillow. Is that wallpaper behind the red candle? Whatever it is ~ it's beautiful.

I am glad you are flaunting your red so I can enjoy viewing it. Your attention to detail is evident and you have combined such a nice selection of patterns that work beautifully together. It creates such a rich and opulent feeling. ~Cathy~
I have also been wondering how little Connor is doing. I know it has been such a difficult time for him and those who love him. He has been in my thoughts and prayers.

Ooooh, such beautiful things.

I love red, but don't use it in decorating except during the summer (patriotic touches) and Christmas. However, I think I could redo a room based on that darling lamp of yours!! Your other items are wonderful, too, but your lamp really speaks to me!

Hope you've had a great weekend! Dana
