Red, a hugely symbolic colour across different cultures loaded with symbolic meanings.
In India, red is holy, it is a symbol of purity and ritual. Wedding saris are red. In contrast, Western societies see red as a sign of power, danger, sex. Maybe that’s really why wedding saris are red. My Indian Nanna told me not to wear a wedding sari when I got married, but that was probably because she thought I’d run off with her jewellery.
Plus, my sister’s called Ruby. Red rocks.
Sign from Third Drawer Down, which has become my favourite shop for gifts, which people actually enjoy receiving class stuff and don’t wish to exchange for credit notes (You know who you are).
This weeks red inks. They look rather berry like, the darkest one I had to stop myself from dipping my fingers in it looked like raspberry puree.
Handmade box from Zakee for my 21st birthday, complete with a Ganesh statue from my Dad and two smurfs which were a wedding present for Al and I from our friend Craig.
Milan a couple of years ago conquering the drop-in. There’s a couple of photos of blood soon after, but I’ll spare you.
A trip to Canberra, Evans is one of my family names.

I got this beautiful book from my friend Amy and this is just one of the incredible pages in it. You may see more later in the week, but I’m not sure if I’m quite ready for sharing. Issey Miyake ‘Pleats Please’ photographed by Francois Giacobetti.
