Inspired By...Ruby Slippers

For Halloween this year my daughter went as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. I found her sparkly red slippers at Target during the summer and immediately knew her costume, which I made! (This was my first sewing attempt. It was no where near perfect, but she wore it at dark, so the mistakes were hard to see.)

The favorite part of the outfit for both me and little Dorothy were the red shoes. As I watched her prance around in those glittery red shoes, I was reminded how much I love red. It is my favorite color, always and forever. Adding a touch of sparkle just gives it a new twist.

This inspiration board incorporates both red and sparkle, sometimes together, sometimes not. A few of the images remind me of the small glitter trees and red wreath I use as Christmas decorations. Mmmmmm, maybe it's time to pull out the boxes!

I'm so happy to see your latest inspiration board. Red is one of my favorite colors and I always enjoy seeing what people pair it with since it's such a strong color. Best to you in 2010. Hope to see more of your posts again.
