In The Kitchen For REDnesday!


Big thanks to Sue at It's A Very Cherry World for hosting REDnesday, and also for creating such cute graphics each and every week!

I was sure I wasn't going to be able to join in this week. I couldn't think of a single red thing to share. But then I looked up and noticed how badly I needed to dust, and I saw a few more things. Like the old egg carton, and the cake carrier. Sorry, I didn't dust before I took the pictures. I'll do that later!

I have no idea what was originally in this jar, but it says on the rim "When empty use this table jar for sugar, jams, jellies, honey, pickles". So I followed orders, and put sugar cubes in it! I love the little glass knob.

I thought this jar was appropriate for Easter. I've had it a very long time, but it didn't have a lid when I got it, so for now it has one that isn't the right size. I've been carrying the measurements around with me for years, hoping for a better fit. One of these days I know I'll find one!

Let's pop outside for this last red. It's an old sprinkler, and it says "It Gets The Corners" on it. It gets the corners all right, and usually me and everything else in it's path! I can't wait 'til it's time to use it again!! The gardens are going crazy with new life, and although it takes alot of work, it's so rewarding. If you're a gardener, you know what I mean! I hope this week brings you all beautiful weather to play outside in!

Oh I just love that jar with the sugar cubes! Where did you find one like that? I save alot of jars just cuz there're so cool and made out of glass for storing many different items in! The egg carton is great too! Take care, Fran. XO

You always find such great reds. I'm in the kitchen this week too! The jar is just so cute. The bunny jar is too. I have some of those sprinklers too. Ours were orange (and then they were stolen out of our front yard) and the new ones we purchased are black. They work great, but I'm glad we installed a sprinkler system now.

At least the dust bunnies are hiding when you haven't dusted. Mine are brazen whenever I take a pic..they come out and smile for the camera. lol

That sugar jar is just darling! I have that same glass canister with the red/yellow bunnies, etc. on it!

Congratulations on your Sweet Bee win - you lucky dog!

Happy Rednesday back to you. That is a fun theme post. Maybe one day I'll get busy and join the fun! The dice are rolling in the DOLLOPOLY BOARD...wow, I'm having a blast blogging! Didn't even know I had it in me! I've mailed your box to you on Monday!

Sherrie said...

I always stop here first for Rednesday, you never disappoint. I have been getting more red put together so I will be back to the party next week. I just might have to go check out Goodwill for red. Hey a girl has to do what a girl has to do.... right? Have a good day.

Hi Carol! Boy that container with the little glass knob is cute! I have your same biscuit jar and will also keep an eye open for a lid for you. Two pairs of eyes are better than one! Have a great week ahead! Elizabeth

LOVE your little sugar cube jar!.. And that old sprinkler is great! I'm always fascinated with old things like that!.. It doesn't matter much what it is.. Everything has a history or a story! Happy Rednesday! ~tina

Carol,
Love that old sprinkler. Give me rust and I am happy!
re match boxes: I got them at a Fred Meyer. They are under $2.00 for 10. (we heat with a wood stove so use he matches). If you have seen any of my old posts you know I have been covering them with music paper and my teabag roses.

These will be a bit different though.

Great idea using those boxes for Patriotic decor!

Thanks for coming by.

More incredibly cute stuff, Carol! Love the egg carton and sprinkler.

What size jar lid do you need? You just never know what your readers might come across!

Charlotte said...

Dust? What does that mean?:) I tell everyone that if they can see the dust, then they are standing too close! Love everything!
