Red ~Rojo~Rouge

Red is the color of old barns,

love, passion, and old hay rings.


It is the color of berries, 

wood,


and ancient bolts.  

The color of shady, timeworn sheds, wild hair, and bandannas. 

The color of fire, apples, fast cars, and fingernail polish.  

The color red is.........

  7. I have a red antique coke machine in my house and I love it. I don't have anything else red, just it. I'm sometimes tempted to add touches of red in.

  9. Most of the old Swedish farm houses and barns were red with white trim. The color came from the copper mines in the province of Dalarna and was called Falu red. Whenever I see a red house or barn with white corners and window frames, I think of the Swedish countryside. Thanks for bringing old memories to life.
