REDNESDAY-Cherries and Ladybugs!
I saw these cherry plates at the thrift over a week ago, but passed them by, thinking that I had nowhere to display them, and no room in the cupboards so that we could actually eat off of them. I'm sure you know where this story is going. Suffice it to say that I couldn't stop thinking about them, and when they were still there a week later, I took it as a sign that they should come home with me. I only wish that there had been a full set of them!
I found this cute ladybug quilt at an estate sale, and I can't decide whether to leave it as a quilt for the porch swing in front, or make a cushion for this bench and one for the porch swing. I love having cushions and pillows on them in the summer, but after what the squirrels did to them, I'm not so sure I want to put the time and the effort into making something cute, and then crying like a big baby when they get destroyed!
And last we have a bunny made from a vintage hankie and a rhinestone-encrusted pin. You don't see too many red bunnies, so I grabbed her!
I normally wait for Sue, our REDnesday hostess, to put her post up before I publish mine, but I recently have become caregiver to my Mom, so I've had to really start budgeting my time. I don't know how you ladies with full time jobs do it all!
Please drop by It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue will have a list of other red lovers for you to visit!
