cha ching cherry!

And that would be the name of the polish I have on my toes today! Cha Ching Cherry! It's funny because I'm not a vibrant person. I don't necessarily want to stand out in a crowd. I don't wear loud clothes. I'm not a loud talker. I don't wear kinky hair styles. I have conservative taste in people, clothes, food, art, hair, makeup, etc. Yet.... when it comes to my toes, they love to scream LOOK AT ME!!!! And they get painted bright and cheery so you can't help but notice them! Why is that? Why do I have the nerve to put myself "out there" when it comes to my toes, but no other aspect of my life? Why do I allow myself to be vulnerable to what others might think in this one area of my life? And why would I put this information out on the Internet for everyone to know?! I don't know that either. AND would I allow my fingernails to be painted that same, vibrant color....? Absolutely not! This is definitely a piece of my puzzle.

It shouldn't surprise me though that I love bright red nail polish because I love geranium red, rose red, fuchsia red; and I love vintage red in table coverings, aprons, and hankies.

And sweet, red cherries.
And red, luscious raspberries.
And red, sweet watermelon.

But it doesn't really matter if I'm not a red kinda person in all areas of my life all of the time because as long as I have my red hankies and red vintage tablecloths and sweet red watermelon, life is good....

Lovin' the hankies! Btw- I now have 5 ready to ship to you! I am going to put them on Etsy as Reserved for you. Also, if you want to frame them, great way to is to use Album frames because they are square. Urbanoutfitters.com has a great selection!!
