REDnesday And A Giveaway!


Happy REDnesday! And thank you Sue, at It's A Very Cherry World, for hosting this fun party every week. Be sure to pop in to her pretty blog when you're done looking at my reds!

First we have a set of boxes that I was so lucky to win from Janelle at Sweet Bee Cottage! I wanted to win these pretty badly, because I think my kitchen is in need of some beautification. This is where there are, for now. I want to eventually get the spice jars and picnic basket off there, but since it's been warm outside, everything inside seems to take a backseat.

I found this herd, flock, or gang of gnomes and shrooms in the dollar section at Target. The gnomes were a funky brown color, so I painted them red. Jacqueline, you know that you're responsible for this!

The little cottage on the right was found last week at a thrift store, for 25 cents!

Finally, today is my one year blogiversary! I'm celebrating by having a giveaway, with the above items being what you can win. And I will be adding to this all week, to fill up the box real good! If you are interested, please enter HERE by leaving a comment. I'm so happy to have met you all, right here in blogland, and I appreciate each and every one of you!

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Oh those look so good in your house! I am so glad you will enjoy them.

Love the gnome idea. Another idea I will have to "borrow" if I can find them at my local Target. (Or was it a long time ago?)

Cute cottage too!

Mary said...

Hi Carol, where to start?! First, I love the little bluebird in your sidebar. Next, good for you for winning that darling giveaway at the Sweet Bee Cottage. I love your gnomes and toadstools-they look vintage. Great job of painting them. The cottages are so dear.
I'm sure I forgot something but if i go back, I'll lose everything I wrote already ;) Happy REDnesday!

Dawn said...

well Happy Birthday! and Happy Blogiversary! I'm so happy you won those boxes. They're perfect for you. I don't remember the gnomes at Target...maybe they didn't catch my eye since they weren't red yet!
Hugs,
Dawn

Happy Blogaversary, Happy Blogaversary, Happy Blogaversary, HAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPY Blogaversary. Imagine me singing to you. Even if you weren't number 1 on Mclinky, I still would see yours first, you have the nicest stuff.

Diane H said...

Love everything! Paint the gnomes - what a great idea!

Angela said...

Oh my goodness girl, those spice jars..ohhhhhhhhhhhh,,,,oh my oh my oh my!! Ya I would have been praying to win that give away for those boxes also. Like I told you before Carol, you and I together at yard sales or thrift stores would be heading for the same things each time, LOL. I do like the look on top of the fridge. What a great idea about painting those gnombs..I will have to see that woman who inspired you, and NOW has inspired me to start doing that (instead of only picking up red items, I will start painting what I find,,lol) I'm SO hoping to join Sue today once again for REDnesday...

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

Congratulations on your one year anniversary!!! The time flies, doesn't it? You asked if I knew of people who substituted applesauce for sugar in baking and...YES...many do and it works well and makes things healthier and definitely more moist (which I love)!!
Love your REDS Carol! Again...congrats!!!
Hugs,
Coralie
