Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #24 -- The Color Red

Carly of the blog Ellipsis would like to see items of the color red this week, with one stipulation, which I will get to in a minute. I don't have a lot of red but I did get the following little bear, named Valentino, free for buying 4 Valentine's cards at the superstore Fred Meyer, and he has some red on him, so he qualifies. Following are other red items I had pictures of: A red rose just blooming, and red Dove candies.








For extra credit, we could picture Valentines items that weren't red. These are old, old Valentines candies, from the 1920's or 1930's, I'm guessing, that have come down to me from my late mother-in-law, who kept them in a steamer trunk that I inherited. I think they are just fun! And likely petrified!












If you would like to participate in this meme, head on over to Carly's at the link in the first sentence. She has directions for doing so. If you would like to see what the other participants have posted in last week's photo shoot, Carly has links to go to them on her blog. URL's for this week's participants are in the comments.

You got a bear for purchasing four cards? That's amazing. ;-)
