REDnesday!


If you love the color red, you'll love REDnesday, hosted by Sue at It's A Very Cherry World!

First we have an old bucket that I painted a couple years ago, and it's just waiting to be filled. This year I'm thinking pink fuchsias!

I painted this bucket from a project straight out of Mary Engelbreit's Outdoor Companion book. Those cherries are for you, Sue! I think this bucket will be planted with lots of red impatiens.

And finally, a little old clock that I got for ten cents many years ago. It inspired a little collection, and now I have three, in different colors. At Christmastime I saw a pale blue one at an antique store for $10. I passed on it because I was doing my Christmas shopping. I wasn't supposed to be shopping for myself. Of course now I regret it! But that's ok. I'm sure another one will come my way some day! So, do YOU have any reds to share?

Love your red clock. Yes, patience does sometimes reap a reward. I hope you find the other clock again.

I'm going to sneak off to Illinois and get that cherry bucket right off your porch because it is so stinking cute and I want one too! I have that book and I have not attempted to make this. You make me feel brave. I can do it! I can do it!

Love all your reds (again) and the clock is extra cute.

(Um - I'm NOT really going to come steal your bucket. I always worry that after I say something like that that the bucket will get stolen and I'll come under suspicion. So if something happens to the bucket - it wasn't me!)

Carol, those are cute pails - good job! The clock is so adorable - wish you had shown the others with it. Isn't it funny how the painting sort of resembles my coffee pot!

Jacqueline said...

I love coming to your house to visit. You are my cup of tea. The Mary E. bucket...yikes, how cute. I have something I want to give you...Now I know the perfect person that would love it. Packing it up and sending a wee box to you on Monday...just because!

I always love your reds. And just think, Lawn sale season is finally starting, what new treasures (red ones) await? Have a good day.

I love old tin buckets. They're so much nicer than plastic ones aren't they. I think you've done a great job painting them.

Oh my!! Your little clock is just like mine, except that mine is black. If you go to my blog, I posted a pic of my clock for Table Top Tuesday and Tea Part Tuesday just yesterday. We must be on the same wave length. I don't have any cute buckets like yours though. Your little clock is perfectly charming in red!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

Ohhh, darling clock, Carol. I'm so sorry you missed out on the one at the antique store. You did a great job on the bucket!
I didn't have any reds to share this week but had to come by and see all the great stuff everybody had to share. Happy REDnesday~

All of these red items look so very cheery! I don't use too much red myself, but I love to see it in other people's decorating. xo joan@anythinggoeshere

Nice work on that bucket! I know it's not red, but I would like a better peek at the structure behind it, with the green brackets and doors - is that possible?
