Every single morning I make myself a cup or three of green tea in this jaunty red kettle.

I time Braxtons oatmeal (insert frowny face) with this cute red timer.
 I drink said cup or three of tea in this shiny tea cup.
 At the end of the day I like to have one of these.
 While Braxton has one of these.
Am I alone in loving shiny red things?  Why do we love the colors that we love?  Does it have to do with positive associations - from childhood perhaps?  Have you had a lifelong love for one particular color, or do you (like me) change your mind about color frequently?  What's you favorite color now?
All I know is that shiny jaunty red tea kettle makes me smile every time.
