Reddy when you are!

.
When I told my friends that this week’s theme on True Colours Thursday was to be scarlet someone said that it was the perfect colour for a scarlet woman. Everyone laughed and I did too although I wasn’t quite sure what was so funny. I thought they were referring to my similarity to Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind – strong, feisty and sexy. Anyway I thought I’d Google ‘scarlet woman’ and I was horrified to discover it means a woman of easy virtue. Actually it said worse than that but I couldn't possibly print it here! Just wait ‘til I see them.

As soon as I saw today’s colour I thought ‘Shopping!’ I’d find plenty of scarlet things to photograph in a decent store. So that’s what I did. I went shopping!

I just had to buy those scarlet shoes......

.......but I didn't buy this scarlet bag

I couldn't resist this scarlet dress and I almost bought some plates and things, but I did resist resist those.

Would I have made a good air stewardess? I often think I’d would. A dolly with a trolley. I must admit that one of the attractions has to be that gorgeous scarlet uniform the Virgin girls get to wear. But I'd get very embarrassed checking that the men have their seat belts fastened.


Do you reckon black and white are colours? No, nor do I, but that’s the theme for next week. Best put on my thinking cap!

Scarlet women - LOL - wait till you see my post.
Like your scarlet shoes better than mine and wish I still had the figure for a dress.

Re Black & White - hey, they are combined colours for a tease.

Without black and white paints to add to the bright colours, there would be no tints, tones or shades to liven up life's pictures, so I guess black and white have the right to be called colours, too. Scarlet shoes? Yum.
