i drove a red firebird. thank you class of ’84.

when i was 19 i had the world’s coolest cowboy boots. like ever. they were red. i would drive around in my red firebird singing ‘mama’s don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys’. i used to declare joke that if there was ever a fire, i was grabbing the boots. the red boots.

our kitchen used to be red. it was actually a benjiman moore fabulous raspberry but the girls called it red. when i painted our kitchen white a few years ago,there was quite the mutiny.

my computer is red. i have red dishes. red gingham flatware and red wellies.

while our home is primarily white & cream, i love adding in a little splash of red , especially for christmas. i realize some of these images are old news but i kinda got all giddy with talking about red so a few shots are back for a repeat performance.


i scored these fabulous bowls from C.Wonder last week. clearance, extra 30% off and free shipping. they’re gone. don’t hate me. i spoke to my super friendly C.Wonder sales person and she thinks they’ll be back in the spring. speaking of customer service, i was blown away. these little cuties arrived less than 48 hours later & packaged so nicely you’dve  thought they were heading to Will & Kate!

C.Wonder is a super funky preppy new store. owned by Tory Burch’s ex.  a little controversy there between the two businesses but a fantastic shop nonetheless.

favorite red skinnies & a fabulous gift from a friend…gold sequin moccasins!

a picture of mom & me, circa christmas 1967

even brinkley loves red..

simone - Gorgeous Paige! I had read recently about Tory Burch’s ex husband opening a store, didn’t realise it was the C.Wonder that you mentioned earlier today….I did take a look at their website though & loved it!!

Can you believe I own no red AT ALL?! I am taking part in a photo shoot in January & have been asked to wear one red item item….if only you lived nearer, I could borrow from you!! XX

Michelle Whitaker - I used to have a red Firebird also (1987). It was the first car that I bought after graduating from college. I don’t think they make them anymore. Mine had t-tops too. I don’t think they make those any longer either. Makes me feel a bit old to say that. Anyway, it was a fun car to drive. Have a lovely day.

Michele - This entire post just made me smile!! I wish we lived closer. Hope SMK arrived home safe and sound 🙂 xoxo

Amy Avery - Ooooh so love all your red Miss Paige. All of it! You have such a great way of popping in color that is just perfection! I especially love your photo of you and your momma. Precious! So, yep! Christmas is almost here and I am ready, but a little anxious. I am in charge of the Christmas Eve pageant at our church and it’s my first go at it. Got a wee bit of the nerves but it will be perfect as God will be in it all. Say a pray for me! Oh, dear friend, Merry Merry Christmas to you and yours! xoxo

Bethanie - Hi Paige…Im new to C Wonder as well, but just today I saw some mixing bowls (just like your adorable little bowls, only brown) at MARSHALLS :)hmm…maybe since the little ones were clearanced, they’ll show up at Marshall’s or TJ Maxx! I too have a pretty neutral pallet, but I love some red. It’s just happy! My daughter is getting the cutest red Kate Spade bag for Christmas, and Im so hoping she’ll let me borrow it :)!

Have a blessed Christmas, cannot wait to hear how Savannah’s Operation Christmas Child trip went.
