Vivacious Red

Ok so you have all figured out by now, I LOVE COLOR!~ If someone asked me to describe myself with one word....I would say it is Vivacious Yes it's true, I really am!!~......(DEF) full of high spirits and animation; lively or vital.  I am enjoying this Virtual world, as I am getting to share of all my creative energy, that I have an abundance of.   Red is a very VIBRANT color, and believe it or not, I do not use it enough.  I never wear the color red, as I would feel like a VIXEN, much to strong for me, and not a good color choice for me! Here is a recent table scape I have done.  Nothing fancy, just plain ole fun!
My can candle holders...I of course spray painted them...added the twine and the little decorative butterflies. Aren't they so cute? I can use these out on my back deck too in the Summer time.
 I had bought some red burlap and attempted a table runner.  I did not like it, so I decided to make little chair covers instead...I like the added fabric with the punch of color.
And there you have more color inspiration by MWAHHHH!~ I know it's not for everyone, and some are even afraid of the use of....but I do hope this inspires you to think outside the box and try it sometime, just might make you smile.

I will be linking this post to a few of my favorite parties later on this week. Participating in Jenny Matlock's alphabet Thursday always inspires me to think a little more so out of the box.  In fact I had no intention of using this post at all for participating...that was until the light bulb started to flicker, and all of a sudden I came up with all these V words.  So thanks Miss Jenny, I really am becoming more of a  VILIGANT student Rednesday party
(Bragfest over at Jans)....I am bragging on my cans! And chair covers!  You can be Crafty challenge

There you go with that spray paint again. I so would love to come and sit at your table of color. But, I'm claiming the flower pillow. It's yummie and all mine. Great scape. Love the way your mind works. The more vibrant the better as far as I'm concern. Don't those people who are afraid of color scare you, I worry about them and what they are missing.

I absolutely love the can candle holders. I so detest those little glass holders for night lights, they are so boring and the open plates always get so messy but these look fabulous. So much so I might actually have to try and make some for myself! Now that would be a minor miracle of the creative kind :-)

Dear Mrs. Vivacious- Your personality screams RED, so you don't have to wear it if you dont want to! :D heeheee

I've always felt like a vixen too if I put on red! And then living in a gang affiliated neighborhood in Brooklyn told me to 'de-red' my wardrobe. But now that I'm in England and feeling like a new person, I wear red at leaste once a week, even if it's to paint my fingernails red. Give it a try! I dare ya!

And the larger scale picture of the candle cans on your table really shows how great they look, and the chair covers, WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Excellent!

Personally I love color as well. I do find it hard sometimes bringing it all together though in my decor. I get nervous that it looks too "much". I guess ultimately if it pleases my family and I, that's all that matters.

Super cute candle cans. I really like that the materials are recycled. Cute butterflies. I'm not sure if I read you made those too. Anyhoo... love pictures you shared.
