There are a few reasons. First, I am in love with the color red, and more specifically, a particular moniker for that famed color, Scarlet! In fact, here are a few of the things I own that bear this wonderful color. (note, these are just a few, I didn't want you to be bored with ALL of them)
Red lipstick from MAC is a must have. I think I have 5 or 6 different MAC shades. Oooooh, and a lovely red eyeshadow too!
Here is the red portion of my antique books. Love this!
Secondly, I am a child of the King and He says that He will keep me protected underneath His wing. I like that image. The picture of a mother hen caring for her chicks, cuddling them and keeping them from danger.
Third, I am a major fan of the beautiful bird known as the Cardinal, or Red Bird. Since Red can be known as Scarlet, I've taken a bit of license. If I were a Lilliputian, I'd hang out underneath my very own Scarlet Bird's wing.
Finally, I believe that anyone ought to be able to see beauty and inspiration from such a wonderful place as peeking out from beneath this amazing feathered friends lovely wings. Don't you?
