Not my normal colours & tennis anyone?

I'm on to number 5 now - Kirsty's idea for 5 was to use colours you normally wouldn't use.
Hmmm - I do normally use quite a variety - or do I ? One thing I do know is that i don't 'do' green - I don't mind pale and aqua sort of greens but I'm not a lover of dark greens and I'm also a bit superstitious of green too.
We don't have a lot of red in our house - mainly because they are all 'Spurs' fans ( football ) and red is the colour of their arch rival - so it's frowned upon.Daft I know - but that's the way it is! Weird really isn't it - what seems normal here is probably totally ridiculous to others!
Anyway, I decided on red and came up with this....

and now it's on to happy post time. Look what arrived yesterday


How exciting- two tickets for Wimbledon- I've tried before and not been lucky,but this year I have. It will be something nice to look forward to - a nice day out.They are on number two court which isn't as good as one or centre but a good day out nonetheless.Let's hope the sun shines.

Bryan Adams looks great in any colour!
Yay for Wimbledon, we were lucky enough to get Centre Court tickets a few years ago and had a superb day out.

Hi Denise , well how lucky are you.... seats at Wimbledon, wow !.
I like the colours , since looking around the blogs here it has made me aware that I dont use all colours available , I stick mainly to pastels and so im going to have a few trial colour days too.
Loving the Bryan Adams theme .
Hugs Elaine
