Ten on Tuesday: 10 Favorite Things that are Red

I love red -- I really, really do -- so I thought when I saw this week's Ten on Tuesday topic, that this would be an easy one. Hmmm . . . not the slam dunk I thought it would be!

1. Strawberries -- I love them on their own, dipped in chocolate, on shortcake with whipped cream, in a smoothie -- you name it, I love them

2. My Levenger red leather "briefbag" -- my celebratory purchase and treat for myself when I was hired at my current position

3. My wonderful little red '09 Prius -- I hope to coddle it so it lasts forever

4. My blinged-out St. Louis Cardinals baseball cap -- I love wearing it when I go to a Cards game with my daughter

5. Watermelon -- if I could get fresh strawberries (see #1) and watermelon all year round, I'd be ecstatic

6. My nice little red umbrella that I've had for years and never really used much or appreciated until I arrived in England a month ago :)

7. The super-soft red sweater I found on sale earlier this winter

8.  Cherry and grape tomatoes -- love them fresh off the vine

9. Male cardinals (the birds) -- I especially love to see their bright red against a backdrop of snow in the winter

10. Dorothy's ruby slippers



  1. Dorothy's ruby slippers! I'm not a big "red" fan and thought I'd have a hard time with this list, but I couldn't stop at 10 and wound up with 11. :)

  2. I never thought of the Ruby slippers! Rubies are one of my favorites too.

  3. I love Levenger products. What a fun list!

  4. I've been so busy with class and getting ready for my trip tomorrow that I haven't gotten time to look at everyone else's list, but I'm heading that way in just a few minutes. Definitely looking forward to seeing your 11. :)

  5. I thought the topic would be a breeze and then I started struggling fairly early on. That'll teach me to say "Oh, this one will be easy!" lol

  6. Isn't that Levenger catalogue tempting? I could spend a fortune on their items. In fact, the last time I got a mailer/catalogue from them, I forced myself to throw it away without looking through it! lol
