REDNESDAY!


If you love the color RED, you'll want to pop over to It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue hosts REDNESDAY every week!

I found this cute little strainer at a garage sale last week. Is it a collection if you only have two? There's the other one next to it. I don't want a collection of these. Seriously, I don't! That's a mango in the background, in case you were wondering.

These two roosters and the ladybug watering can hang out by the back door.

These two Valentine girls came from the flea market. It's so nice to find these now, really cheap. I'm sure you've all noticed how outrageously priced they are right around Valentine's Day!

The kneehugger and Little Lulu also came from the flea market. Do you remember Little Lulu? I loved reading the comic books, and our daughter Liz had a VHS tape of Lulu that she just about wore out when she was little. I thought she would be excited by this find, but her reaction was pretty lukewarm!

And last but not least, on our refrigerator hangs this towel. GO BLACKHAWKS!!!!

Lovin your reds! I love those little strainers but know what you mean about not wanting to 'collect' them but if they jump out at you what can you do??

First, I like your new header, it's cute and summery!

Second, I love your two white plant stands!

Third, I have that same flowered strainer! You know who to send the red one to if you ever get tired of it! ;)

And, believe it or not, I have that exact same white lattice shelf! It's over my kitchen sink! Weird, huh?

Two is not a collection - but could be the start if you are 1)lucky/ 2) not careful.
Very nice selection of Reds.
I was excited about Lulu.
