REDnesday!


It's time to pull all of your red stuff out of the cupboards and share it over at It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue is our incredible hostess!

I sure hope I haven't shared these canisters before on REDnesday. I'm really scraping the bottom of the RED barrel here. I think I'm going to have to run out and buy more stuff this week. Thrifting and antiquing have been really bad lately.

A little tin with a pretty red rose on it. I think it's my favorite tin ever!

And lastly, some vintage red plastic roses, along with some lily of the valley, sent to me by Barbara. I love old jars, and I love old plastic flowers even more! Now please head over to Sue's. My mission this week, if I choose to accept it, is to find more fun REDS!

Hi there! That is a beautiful tin! And I always love the old jar canisters - yours are great - I also like them with the green lids.

Good luck on your important mission this week...

Today is my first day of Wednesday is Rednesday. I am having fun. I just love your cannisters and your photos on your sidebar. Your collection could be mine, looks like we collect the same things. I do have a favor to ask. I love your vintage thrift store picture. It would look fabulous on my sidebar as well, would you mind if I copied it? The name of my blog is A Conversation at Goodwill, so you can see just how perfect it would be. Thank you for your response, please stop on over. Thanks.

Sherrie said...

P.S. I am now a follower. Anyone who loves thrifting as much as I do, I have to see what future treasures they find.

My favorite is your rose tin too. You were sweet to visit my blog. Your post below was the real drooler for me. I'll probably come back tonight after church and look some more.

Dawn said...

I don't think I've seen the canisters before, very cute. I'm loving that rose tin!

Your plastic roses reminded me that Hubby's grandmother filled all the brick flower beds on our porch with plastic flowers. Inspectors made us take out the planters when we bought the house because of water issues so MIL took them all home and planted them in her yard. They're still doing nicely there!

KBeau said...

Love your things. I'm noticing that lots of the blog I'm visiting today are showing retro things. I love that look.

Donna Rafferty said...
