REDS Inside and Out for REDnesday!
Today we're looking at reds inside the house, and we're going to venture out into the garden for more reds! And as always, when you're done looking here, please head over to It's A Very Cherry World, where the awesome Sue hosts this fun party every week!
First up is a little old Lefton apple plate, hanging from a keyholder that my sister made for me.
A few weeks ago, I was sitting around at my Mom's house, when I decided to snoop a bit in her buffet cabinet. I always loved looking in this cabinet when I was little, because it held all of the old Gurley pilgrim candles, and my little snow globe collection, which Santa added to each year. I found this old tablecloth, which I remember from childhood, and my Mom says she made that in the 50s! I didn't even have to beg to get it, and hopefully she'll let me have the pear one next time!
My red watering can, all ready and waiting to get planted with pansies and hung on the lamppost.
My little red wagon, also ready for some pots of flowers!
And finally, an old red pump and cream can. I got the pump out of my grandparents' barn in Wisconsin, and brought it here. It says Sears Roebuck on it, and our house is a Sears Roebuck house, so it was meant to come here! I can't wait to rake out all of the leaves in the garden, but I probably won't do that for another month, because it's supposed to snow this weekend, and most likely a couple more times before summer!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!
