Red - Roy G Biv 2014

I found red in Hong Kong.
A little shop in Yau Ma Tei where an elderly man stamps red packets with gold foil patterns and auspicious chinese characters. 
The red and white taxis of Hong Kong island caught in the reflective ceiling of a shop. There are blue and white taxis on Lantau island and in the New Territories the taxis are green and white. 
Some creative yarn bombing outside the FrancFranc store in Causeway Bay. 
Chinese new year is around the corner and I spotted these lacy paper decorations with exquisite details in a shop in Sham Shui Po.
Homeless - a store for quirky, cute and well designed products,there's something for everyone in the three floors the store occupies.

This has been fun.

The challenge searching for Red has been taken up by quite a few and there are many gems and to view them Jennifer has links to all those participating, on her blog. Click here for links.
 Have a good weekend.

Indeed it is fun - fun for you searching and fun for us looking! I especially liked the yarn bombing and that wonderful little Hong Kong shop. I'd so like to visit some day and you've whetted my appetite still further ...

I just heard about yarn bombing recently--what a fun idea! And those lacy decorations are quite beautiful.
