Red – Intense – Love -Valentine’s Day. Red is such a passionate color in all it’s various hues from the deepest darkest black cherry to the softest sandy pink, and it pretty much pervades my home: Chesterfield furniture set, dining room area rug, cushions and pillows, leather rocking chair, kitchen appliances, desk, throw blankets, accents and knick-knacks, even my bedroom door is red. The list is quite extensive. There are also some soft pinks, aggressive fuchsias and oranges, all finding their root in red. I even have a pink Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon tattooed on my leg.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, here are a few great photos of things my friends and I love that are red, white and pink.
The heart is the warmest Valentine’s Day symbol because it represents love in its purest form. Giving someone your heart means giving him/ her the thing that is most precious and vital to you. In a nutshell, a heart symbolizes life !
Valentine’s Day trivia: The original Valentines originated in the 1500s, but rather than fill this post with history, trivia, facts and a little fiction, here’s a great link where someone’s already done the work; http://www.brownielocks.com/valentinehistory.html.
Happy Valentine’s Day ❤
