I had to go look up "The Red and the Black" after that phrase popped into my head - I knew it was a book and I knew I associated it with French class, but that's all I could remember about it. It is French, by Stendhal. My school had a language program where you started French or Spanish in junior high and could continue all the way through high school, if you wanted to. So we got to the point along about junior year where we were reading novels. I didn't read that one but what I remember is that it was reputed to be especially hard going, at least in French. (There also a "Red and Black" song in "Les Miz" as some people may know. I'm not sure about whether there's any real connection between those two.)
So anyway, that is where the title came from. The reason that title popped in my head is because I have the missing bits of the red wheel and the black/gray/white wheel to show you. I'm starting with the red one because all I am going to show you IS the wheel - somehow my previous picture went missing. It's not really even necessary because I had partial shots of the wheel, but somehow I feel like it's incomplete until I post it! So here you go:
The interesting thing is how similar they all look, in this shot, even though many of them are actually not! (Although honestly, I think if I have something I could stand to destash, it might be a few of these reds!) Here's the list (under the jump), so you won't have to be trying to read my writing:
Here is the entry with the bottles, although it still doesn't have closeup pictures and perhaps that's what I actually need, to see if it shows the differences better! However... moving on to the black half of this...
I had posted pictures taken of this wheel well before it was full and here is the updated version:
(I will probably fill in the one remaining spot with Fetish, now that I've got it, but I probably won't take a picture of the whole thing again, since that would be fairly pointless for one spot!)
I'm not repeating the detail pictures for the bottom half, because there's nothing new there, but here is the section with the new ones:
Here's the black part of the wheel with Fetish added. (This picture looks sort of dusty but I'm not waiting until I have sunshine to take it over again. You can get the idea from this, at least!)
