A Few Kitchen Reds For REDnesday!


Please remember to head over to It's A Very Cherry World after you look at my reds. Sue is our hostess, and you will find a list of lots of other blogs to visit to see more reds!
Well, we're back in the kitchen this week. I thought I had exhausted all of my options in here, but I've since spotted a few more reds. Like the little plastic basket that holds some of my vintage towels. And the old aluminum foil/paper towel/ wax paper holder. I love the red gingham bow on there! At first everyone (except me) hated this thing when I hung it up, but I guess it shows that you can get used to anything if you have to deal with it long enough!

This is an old breadbox that I use to hold some of my craft paints so that I don't have to run downstairs all the time. There are more craft supplies in the yellow breadbox too.
And finally, when Sandy over at 521 Lake Street showed some plates that she had gotten at Target, I had to run right over there and get some for myself! Once again Target has the cutest things, and those cherries are for you Sue!

Now THIS is why I don't go into Target unless I have to -- those cute dishes! I have WAY more dishes than brains already.

I really love your kitchen metal ware -- I remember when people USED those breadboxes! I remember also how they rusted at our summer house, and how wonderful it was when my mother discovered Tupperware -- no rust in the salt air!

What sweet things you shared this week; thanks!
Cass

Rita said...

Lovely red this week. I remember having the same paper dispenser when growing up.

I have the same table cover that is in your second photo. It was a wedding present back in the mid sixties.

Thanks for the visit to my old red barn. Hope you have a wonderful week with nothing but happy reds.

Love your wax paper dispenser but I especially love the bread boxes. I had my grandmothers (it was red!) but it was lost in a house fire in 1986.

Angela said...

You have given me an amazing idea to paint my vintage paper towel, foil, wax holder. Loved all the pics...

I wasn't ready to do any red's today but am still enjoying what everyone else has to show. I love the aluminum tin foil holder, it would look great in my kitchen.... hint, hint.

Apparently, they didn't have a vote - let's hear it for kitchen dictatorship! I love both pieces.

Hi Carol,

I wish I could have joined in the party today but my husband and three sons have been sick. I have a little time to visit my friends though. I love your reds but my fav. it the plate on the bottom. I love your Easter/Spring blog decorations. They are just so cute. Your blog is such a cheery place to visit and always makes me smile.
Love and hugs,

Hi Carol! Catching up on visiting. I loved your comments about your husband watching Hoarders. Do we all watch it hoping and praying it is never us collectors of vintage! Today's post had so many fun things to discover. Always cute, always fun, I love to visit here! Elizabeth

I love all of your red pics. I have a lot of red in my house. I love red and vintage treasures too. You have wonderful, fun things! I just bought the polka dot plates at Target in red and yellow and my sweet mom bought me the big, red striped picnic basket too.

This is my first visit to Old Glory Cottage. Enjoying it. I am one of the publishers of Mermaids of the Lake. We are an e-zine for women and we have a blog of the same name. Come for a visit!
