A Red Christmas For Rednesday!
If you love the color red, you'll want to head over to It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue hosts this great party every week!
Let's start out with a little banner. I bought these chipboard letters at Hobby Lobby.
I kept it very simple, just painting it red, adding some buttons and rick rack. This is hanging at the doorway from the kitchen into the dining room.
I've only just started the digout of all the vintage Christmas decorations. Everything you see today is from one box. One down, a million to go! Here we have a Santa on skis, and a little elf.
A clip-on felt bird, two ornaments, and a pinecone elf. I should have turned him to the side a little, so you could see his jaunty red hat.
A Santa with glass bead legs, and a spun cotton head. I never knew a thing about spun cotton until I started reading blogs! I didn't know alot of things until I started reading blogs!!
Bottlebrush wreaths hanging from all of the cupboards in the kitchen....
and the cabinet as well. I don't think I could ever, ever have enough bottlebrush wreaths. Or trees! But that's a story for a different day!
And finally, I made this from letters from JoAnn Fabrics. They used to have letters in their dollar section, all year long, but they don't anymore, and I really miss them. Does anyone know a trick to taking good mirror pictures? It's so hard! Oh, and I forgot to mention this: Yes, I have started decorating for Christmas! I've never started this early before. But it takes so long to do, that by the time I'm usually done, I feel I haven't gotten to enjoy it enough. Oh, and another thing. Be prepared for nothing but Christmas stuff for Rednesday, right up 'til the new year! Now head on over to Sue's for more red stuff!
