Please join me over at It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue is our hostess for Rednesday! It's getting harder and harder every week to find something red to share. Guess I need to buy more red things!

First we have a doll from the Czech Republic, specifically Plzen, the region where my grandpa was from. I bought her at the Czech Fest in Wisconsin several years ago. I had hoped to start a collection, and add a new one every year, but the seller was never there again. Very disappointing.

This is a December Angel, for my daughter, my December angel! I'm sure alot of you have at least one of these angels. I also have an April angel for my birthday. I've contemplated getting a July one for my husband, but do you really think he cares?!

And finally, another set of tin childrens dishes. Another thing that really needs to be put on Ebay, but I've been too lazy to do it! Well, that's it for me. I'm pretty excited because tomorrow I'm going back to an antique mall that had vintage greeting cards for 25 cents. I'm planning to spend hours and hours there! If you would like to see more red things, head on over to Sue's!

Hubby might not care if he has a birthday Angel but if you want him to have it then go for it. Shhh...he doesn't even have to know.

I am with you on finding red things. I don't have a lot of red....My Hubs has so much manly man stuff that my house is more like a guys.

You did great, everything is so cute. The Mickey Mouse plates are a blast from the past.

Happy Rednesday, Terry

Please don't feel obligated to post something red every week, feel free to just view and leave comments!

That doll is so cute, it is too bad that the vendor never came back. I love Christmas ceramic figurines - wait 'til you see mine this year!

Your not showing the rest of the collection because you can't find it is funny..., that's so much like me. I put things somewhere and then I can't remember where. Glad to know I'm not alone.
Love the(partial) collection. Quite nice.
Happy VTT to you...
