REDNESDAY!

I'm so happy to have some reds to share for REDnesday this week!
I found this cute little S&P set at the flea market this past weekend, where everything on the table was 50 cents!

Another Home Sweet Home sign came from my favorite dollar store on vacation, along with some Cardinal Flowers, which the hummingbirds go nuts for.

Speaking of vacations, this cute little place was on the other side of the lake that we stayed at. I love that silo, and I think it would be fun to live there and pretend I'm a little farmer. Minus all of the chores and harvesting the crops and milking the cows though!

I finally found some streamers for my red bicycle! Thank you Mr. Old Glory for putting them on. That basket was on my bike when I was a little girl, and I would put my little doggie in there and ride him all over the neighborhood!

Unfortunately the bicycle lost most of it's seat over the winter, so it's wearing a bandanna for now!
If you would like to see more reds, please head over to Sue's at It's A Very Cherry World. Sue made that ferris wheel graphic below. She always makes really cute graphics for her REDnesday parties!

Your little stove S & P shakers are the cutest and what a great price you got them for.
Love your red bike and the sweet memory of your basket where you put your little doggy. I bought an old blue bike at the thrift store a year ago and it is still in the garage. My boys tease me about it all the time. I picture it out in the garden somewhere with the basket filled up with flowers. Maybe some crepe paper streamers in the spokes for the 4th of July.

Maureen said...

Cute finds Carol. I love the 'sugar' stove. So cute. The little farm looks like a perfect little spot - on a lake to boot!

Cherry Chick said...

Carol,
I'm loving your reds this week. Especially that Home Sweet Home sign. That wouldn't happen to be a "national" dollar store where you found it would it??
I think I need one of those, too..lol.
Thanks so much for sharing with us on Rednesday.

Mary said...

I love that you still have your bike basket that you rode your dog around in. Wow that allowed me to have flashbacks of riding our dog "Willie" around in our bike basket. Dressing him up in doll clothes. Just think of when we were growing up of all they endured and they loved us unconditonally :-)

Love the pinwheels!

GrammyMouseTails said...

I guess I am standing in the S&P line, I can never find any deals around where I live, sigh... Your bike looks so cute, and you still have it! I was peeking at older posts & I love your curtains you found in your cupboard for the kitchen with the birds & bird houses, fits the house perfect! You have such a cute collection. Thanks for stopping by, and I am glad I brought back nice memories about the birds :)
