Friday Shoot out:Complementary Colors

I chose red and green, Christmas colours. Christmas in July???? ask those of you in the northern hemisphere. Yes, Christmas in July in New Zealand. It's winter here and we feel Christmassy. Even the Poinsettias which are plants associated with Christmas are in full bloom in my garden. 

Tutorial: Complementary Colors

Complementary Colors : on opposite sides of the color wheel

During Christmas in the park, 
I wore this hair band. 
I then wore it to school. 

Today is International Day of Kindness .
We think of the children who had died. 
Needless to say,
 my own Andrew who died 22 years ago. 
I bought this pair of booties for him. 

 On my husband's side table, 
Actually the green clock is mine, 
I went away for a month. 
Why he needs both clocks beats me.

Olive oil is healthy, now I buy in big cans.

Nini Tanzania was my saving grace
 when I was mourning for Andrew.
I was knew Nini Tanzania at NTU when I first arrived.
Nini gave me this set of cross stitch 
which is 1/2 meter by 1 meter.
I hibernated in the air conditioned room
 and finished it in 1 month.
People normally took months and months.
It was good seeing Nini again during this trip.
Nini had gone to Australia.
 and I had not seen her for years.
She couldn't recall this.
 This is for you, Nini. 
I put this at the corner of my living room.

Mint Chocolate biscuits.
 like they because they are not 
too sweet.too sweet.

My fruit lime green bowl with juicy apples. 

Even nature thinks Christmas in July is a great idea. 
By the way, when does you Poinsettas bloom?

My friend D made her own Christmas card. 

I need a big cup of coffee when I wake up to start the day. 

HELP!!!! I need a giant cup of coffee.
I don't know what has happened, 
first only part of the post was shown, 
I lost the photos on the draft.
 I am not going to change it anymore

I li nk this to FSO, Jama's photo appeared.

Something wrong with the setting, I can only see half of your typed words, the other half is hidden ! plus your link at FMTSO's page is showing one of my photo from last week's entry.... anyway I enjoyed the photos, especially the chocolate!

You're the second person showing off the crocheted baby shoes this week, it's so beautifully done. I wish I had one made for the sons, but it's easier to just buy a footwear for them from the store.The bliss of having malls around! lol

Welcome back, Ann. Hope you aren't too jetlagged to sort your computer issues. I really like your poinsettias and the biscuits - why didn't I think of them?
