Red

The color we turn when we receive an unexpected compliment.

The shade of lipstick a woman wears when she wants to be noticed.

The complexion of a rose symbolizing romance.

It was all about Red this weekend. The flowers I saw, the shoes I wore, and the food I ate.
My friend and I went to Chef Monica Pope's Green Plum Cooking School (check her out on Top Chef's Masters) this weekend and learned how to make Red Tabbouleh. A delicious and gorgeous meal!

Such a lovely shade to come tint my weekend.

What was your color this weekend?

(PS. The winner of the Amongst Lovely Things giveaway is Lily. Congrats!)

wow - red tabbouleh? That sounds wonderful. I adore tabbouleh salad. Did you just add food coloring to the parsley? ;)

I wore lots of yellow this weekend! Was at the Masters Golf Tournament. Blessed with perfect weather and great golf.

Hmmmmm, my color this this weekend was dark green. The clothes I wore was in dark green both Saturday and Sunday and the food and desert I ate consisted of many different colors, but ton of green in it (green tear yogurt to begin with...)

I'm glad that you had a nice weekend:)

My color this weekend was lime green. I feel so refreshed with this color. I wore lime green spring sweater. By the way, I do love your blog button of the family business.
That's the gorgeous family photo.

this wild clover is amazing! it's like jumping out of the screen.
I was at Sierra National Forest this weekend, so I guess my color was green - everywhere - with dashes of colorful spring!

Heather Taylor said...

It was a gray weekend for me which I know sounds dismal as anything, but it wasn't really. The sky was very cloudy and I wore gray skirts and heels with plum colored stockings and ivory shirts and antique jewelry for that musty attic trunk feeling.

I was at a steampunk wedding with a black and brown dress and kick ass red lipstick...so I suppose the color of my weekend can be summed up by "AWESOME."

How's that for a new color? ;)

Lovely Scribbles said...

Sounds like a wonderful weekend, Dionne! My color this weekend would have to be green - it was everywhere I looked, and it's my favorite color!

LBB said...

What a fun weekend! Hmm...I think my color was red too...wearing my favorite red dress!

Nicole Marie said...

the color of rain and cleaning the house. which would be brown because that was the color of the dirt i mopped off the floor haha

lisaroy said...

My weekend colour would have to be orange - the slipcovers on the chairs in the airport lounge that we stared at for 9 hours during a delay on our flight back to Canada from Ireland. I don't think I'll be putting orange slipcovers in my home. : )

Kristin said...

Mmmmm...I love tabbouleh! I did not know it came in red! :)

Tender Branson said...

That tabbouleh looks crazy. I have been tempted to start trying beets. Red was also my color as I got burned bad on a run.

ravishing reds!

i would say my weekend was blue (in a good way)... because i spent most of it in the reflection of the pool, with a good book and my floppy hat!
