REDNESDAY



Happy REDnesday! Let's go check out what that yellow and RED blob is over there.

I think we need to get closer. . . . .

Cute design on there. Oh, it's a vintage birdcage cover! Let's take a peek inside....

Well Good Morning, Petunia Pearl!

This is a vintage tablecloth, originally meant for a card table, that I have on our dining room table. It's just perfect for St. Patrick's Day. And it has red polka dots!!!

The good luck symbols couldn't be cuter!

Rabbit's feet.

I especially like the wishbone!

And last, we have a little curtain that I made for the washing machine/dryer in the kitchen, to hide the detergent bottles. I think it might be a little "loud" for me! Maybe after a week or two I'll be used to it, but I'm not so sure. I do want a pink and red kitchen, but this might be a wee bit too much pink for Mr. Old Glory!
Want to see more red things? Then head over to It's A Very Cherry World, where our hostess Sue has a whole list of red lovers for you to check out!

I thought it was a vintage hairdressing cape - I am seriously impressed that you have a vintage cover for your birdcage. And the elusive red for St. Patrick's Day tablecloth - doubly impressed!

Mecky said...

Carol, the cover is adorable. I LOVE that!!
The tablecloth is wonderful, too.

That is also a cute idea for covering the detergent bottles! I have some fabric like that with a yellow background. It is to become an apron when I get around to it...someday!

Gosh, I've never seen a vintage birdcage cover before. Very cool!!

Holly- Girls At Heart said...

I think a little bit of loud in the kitchen will be okay. :)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Hi Carol!
I,too, thought the birdcage cover was a vintage hairdressing cape! I love the vintage card table cover! What a wonderful find. You just find some awesome vintage things!!

marina said...

those are all supercute!!!! I too like the wishbone...

LV said...

I think all your reds are very pretty. I especially like the card table cloth that you are using on the big table. Looks nice in the center. I think the bird cage cover is neat, but could be put to another use as well.

Sarah said...

Wonderful textiles! Petunia Pearl looks just like the sweet parakeet I had as a child. :-)
Happy REDnesday! ~ Sarah

I love love love all your sweet pretties, and Petunia and her cover are so sweet!!! I adore your pink and red curtain, that is perfect (and crafty!!) Great job!! Mr. Glory Cottage would "die" in my pink house. LOL!! :)

That is one spoiled bird! Vintage bird cover? How cute!

Your little laundry skirt is adorable! It's always fun to come by for a visit.

Dawn said...

I love how you really use the items you collect. That table cloth is so unique!

Vintage Christine said...

Aaaaaaaaak! A parakeet! I'm terrified of them! Ok, I've calmed down now and want to say I really really live that tablecloth. You always have the best stuff.

Lola said...

Love the card table cloth!

Happy Rednesday too!

XOXO Lola:)

Donnie said...

They are really pretty and so vintage. Loved them.

Angela said...

Loving everything. I so love the vintage material. I was busy doing some housework at my mom's the other day and found a 'mother load'..guess where I will be 'shopping' soon? lol

Genie said...

You are just TOO clever. I love the little curtain you made for the kitchen and the birdcage cover is precious. I have already begun thinking St. Paddy’s Day. 7 years ago I had my head shaved - any my eyebrows too - to raise money for children’s childhood cancers. That was the biggest St P. Day celebration I ever had and ended up raising close to 2,000.00 Have not done it since. I am too old now. My head would get too cold. Love you post.

marie said...

What a neat bird cage cover...it's so cheerful. And I love your pretty tablecloth too!

Thanks so much for visiting me today. It's so nice to meet new folks in the land of blog.

Hi Carol,
Oh, I love your "reds!" and that ruffle is so adorable--and clever too!!!
Happy Rednesday! I hope you're having a wonderful day!

Boo-Bah said...

Lucky little bird to have such a pretty cover for her cage. I think Petunia Pearl is just the cutest name ever!
I love your vintage table cloth red has got to be one of the happiest colors!
Your idea of a red and pink kitchen is wonderful. I grew up with my Mama telling me red and pink didn't go together but I think the combination can be spectacular!

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

Wow! I love that little curtain! So clever. The tablecloth is amazing too!
Hope you are enjoying your day!
Tammy

ThreeOldKeys said...

i hope he doesn't have all those suitcases packed to leave home!

Jacqueline said...

Petunia Pearl...good golly, that's a cute name for the birdy! You are just full of joy and fun. I love coming here and I vote for leaving the cute curtain right where it is!

Rebecca said...

You've got some many fun things! I just love your little bird-how sweet!

My Vintage Blankie said...

Your tablecloth with the shamrocks is just too adorable and perfect. The rabbits feet...what can I say but I love them too! Good idea for your stackable washer and dryer!

Twyla and Lindsey said...

That tablecloth was a 'lucky' find! So unique! I love your cherry curtain. I hear ya about the thrift stores. We have about given up ever finding anything cute there again. We are going to the flea markets/antique malls and every now and then we find a good deal! Have a wonderful day, Carol! Twyla
