Colour Week – Brown, Orange and Red

Well I’m a bit belated on brown and orange, but here they are, plus today’s red pic…

First off, the gingerbread house I made with hubby yesterday for a party…

Gingerbread house

This took a ages to make (it was only finished 10 minutes before we left for the party!), and I was kinda worried it would fall apart as soon as I moved it, but it held together -phew! The walls are made of gingerbread with the sides lined in chocolate fingers for a log cabin effect! The door is made of matchmakers and the windows are matchmakers with panes of glass made from silver balls. So basically it’s a total sugar overload – mmm 🙂

Next up is orange. I mentioned a while back that I’m going to try crochet. Well I thought a scarf would be a nice easy project to start with, so I bought this wool for it. In real life it looks really pink, but in the picture it’s quite orangey, so it’s perfect for my orange pic!

Finally red. When I got married this year, my colour scheme was red. I had a bouquet of red tulips and the church was decorated with red and white flowers. After the wedding, all the flowers were collected up and I had the best preserved and framed. I can’t take a pic of the framed flowers because I just end up reflected in the glass. But here is a pic of one of the gerberas, which would have been part of a pew end…
