The Color Scarlet



This week the color of the week at flutter is SCARLET! I have to say that it is my favorite color besides black, which is not a color in and of itself, because it does not emit light in any part of the visible spectrum. But scarlet, even the word is tempting isn't it? Think of all the amazing things that have this word in common! Books come to mind first for me... The Scarlett Pimpernel, poor Hester Prim in The Scarlet letter, A Study in Scarlet(Sherlock Holmes my dear Watson), and lets not forget the Scarlet Ibis by James Hurst!

Scarlet has always been a color of luxury and position. Funny that it's very associated with the Popes, communists and ladies of the evening. I associate the color with love and passion though. I am a romantic deep in the crevices of my black heart, and the color scarlet warms my soul and stokes my creative fires. I painted my bedroom a shade of scarlet, as the feng shui system of aesthetic advises, so to keep the flames of passion going in the bedroom. Hubba hubba. You don't need to paint all the walls, but you need to get some reds in there to heat the blood in your veins. Flutter is full of scarlet accessories right now including this sweet love seat. Another beautiful sofa, with an Asian brush painting print in scarlet is making me feel better now that my green darling is gone.

So, now that the cold fall evenings are here to stay for awhile, grab yourself a scarlet something and curl up on your sofa and get a little romance into your life....don't forget red wine is scarlet too!

XO,
Susan

Only the rich can afford the high priced hookers right? There you go! Luxury!!!

Hey can we talk about yoga poses? :)

yes scarlet...I was thinking that people may be getting tired of my little color spectrum email blasts, but I guess not. Scarlet was the biggest one yet...it seems many were intrigued by the email named scarlet and what Flutter had to offer in that beautiful palette.

maybe I should channel the pope and ladies of the night more often. oh wait I think I already do!

People are attracted to sin & debauchery. Some of 'em don't like to admit it though.

flutter said...

I'll take it over yoga poses any day! does that mean I just admitted something...uh oh

boodiba said...

I'm gonna get the too-busy squirrel over here to police your yoga lacking ass, sister.

Susan said...

No yoga here! Only fun stuff Boodi...
Did you guys meet when Boodi was visiting from New York with the Squirrel? I brought her into Flutter to see all the lovelies.

flutter said...

no I don't think so, but I'm kind of scared of the squirrel. Might let the squirell know we really really love taxidermy at Flutter, so be careful! Squirrels look so cute, stuffed into place with those bushy, bushy tales and displayed amongst the pretty perfumes.

I thought I met someone who worked there... Along with that cute guy who was blatantly hitting on me.

That never happens here anymore (old lady).

Susan said...

The one that we had to try to find after you realized he was cute and had already left? Silly Boodi.

I'm actually really sure ya'll met before.

And I think our squirrel would be too big to nestle amongst the perfume bottles!
