It's been a star performer in the Humble Bungalow Garden for years...
I plant red geraniums every Spring and place them in a zinc container on the front porch.
They are planted in black pottery planters in the back yard and on the sun deck.
My fortune cookie suggested something new is on the horizon.
While I don't put a lot of stock into fortune messages I did consider what it might mean...
I perused Home Sense and this shiny red Chantal kettle caught my eye.
Could the fortune be "Project Red?"
I like the pop of red.
It goes with the Le Coq towel I purchased in the south of France.
We don't have many red things here in the bungalow.
The guest room's red theme is because I fell in love with this Toile de Jouy bed linen.
It was quite expensive at the time but I didn't care...I was still working and earning good money.
Hence the red pop of colour with the pillow and red hand knitted shawl on the wicker table.
I'm not a "decorator" so I am cautious with home decor items...
I subscribe to restraint over clutter.
Bedside table in the guest room.
Clock, Kleenex, a book and two antique vessels ready for fresh flowers and chocolates.
I place several bottles of Perrier on the table as well.
I want our guests to feel comfortable and welcome.
There's an extra wool throw on the luggage stand at the foot of the bed.
Look at the adorable feet on the Herend piece!
The crude staple repair on this antique bowl persuaded me to buy it.
Pink Roses or peonies are pretty pairing with this cute vase.
Oops this turned out a wee bit blurry...it's hand painted
made by Herend, a Hungarian Company.

Original watercolour painting found at a community fund raiser on Thetis Island several years ago...
I wonder what that new "fortune predicted project" might be.
~ I am waiting ~
I must close for now as
my sister and I are going to take Mother out for a walk and a browse in the shops.
Perhaps there's a pair of red shoes in my future!
“Book your life choices in advance the same way you would book flights, car rentals, hotels, and excursions. Figure out early on in your career whether you intend to be financially independent or marry a rich man, join the ranks of the professional elite or be the stay-at- home type, postpone having children or find part-time employment. Then fasten your seat belt and sit tight as you watch your trajectory veer off course.”
