If you like the color red, you're going to want to join me over at Sue's pretty blog, It's A Very Cherry World, where she hosts Rednesday every week!
Last Friday I went to a garage sale run by a former antique dealer. She had one huge room full of stuff that was priced, but people could wander throughout the house, and if they saw something they liked, just ask and maybe she would sell it. I saw this vintage spice rack, above, and
also this spice rack hanging in her kitchen, full of dust and grease. I asked her if she would sell them, and she said ok, $10 for both, but I had to come back another time, because it would involve getting her husband to take them off the wall. Well I knew that if I didn't leave that house with them right then and there, someone else would snatch them up, so I asked the husband real nice if he would take them down for me, and he gruffly said yes, but I had to wrap them myself. Done! After knocking over the dog's water bowl twice, I got it all wrapped, and got out of there before anything else tempted me. One more thing I can cross off my list of must-haves!
I don't remember if I've ever shown these before, but I made another one of these glass totems, after I found this great rooster at a garage sale. These things look so great tucked in a garden, but the garden is done for the year, so I stuck it in a pot to take the picture.
I knew that if I packed the rooster away, I'd never find it, so I just went ahead and made it. I usually leave these things out all winter, but this one I think I will bring inside. Especially since I noticed after I got the rooster home that his lips, I mean his beak, had been repaired.
My bushes are burning! I love these bushes. They look like nothing special all year, but come fall, they are spectacular! Wanna see more reds? Head on over to Sue's!
