It's Rednesday, so join me at It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue is our hostess, and we celebrate all things red!
Today my red things come from the dining room. The vase above is chalkware, and verrrry ooold. It was in my grandparents' house for as long as I can remember. It's pretty beat up, but I love it! Alot of my most treasured things came from their house.
This little flowerpot is marked Made In Japan on the bottom. It was only $2 at an antique store, so I grabbed it! It's pretty rare to find something so cute, so cheap at an antique store.
This egg was hand-painted in Czechoslovakia. We go to the Czech Fest almost every summer in Phillips, Wisconsin, and I try to add a new egg to my collection. Sometimes they are cheap, sometimes not. It all depends on the vendor. I think I need to bring a little suitcase next time, just for the eggs. And maybe some hand-painted Czech ornaments too. It's a big ordeal trying to get the eggs home without breaking them! Well, if you liked looking at my red stuff, head on over to Sue's. And maybe share some of your own red things!
