This is my first time participating in the Rednesday party! If you would like to see red, pop on over to My Secret Garden, where Sue is the hostess with the mostest! I've been sitting here, trying to remember what exactly got me collecting anything red. You see, I wasn't exactly crazy about the color red until a couple of years ago.
I think this clock might have been the catalyst (obsession starter), because I thought it would look nice against our minty green walls in the kitchen. But the clock isn't what I wanted to share with you today....
This quilt is. My wonderful sister made it for me last Christmas. She is a fabulous quilter, always trying something new. I love it! It's so cottagey perfect! Would the sofa also be considered red? It is verrry old. It was in my grandparents' home for as long as I can remember, and just recently my Mom told me that she remembers it from when she was little, and she is 84! It is pretty uncomfortable, yet really well-made . It would have to be, to survive 80+ years and alot of boy cousins! My Mom says it's stuffed with horse hair!
Well, that's it for my Rednesday! Most of my red is in the kitchen, so I don't know how much I will be able to share. I have very little of it in the rest of the house. Wait a minute. That's a perfect excuse to go shopping! I will look for more red on my Thursday antiqueing jaunts! Wish me luck!
