REDNESDAY



That little red vintage lunch box/picnic basket is a recent Ebay win. I guess the third time is the charm, because I got outbid on two others just like it. As soon as I saw the girl on the bike, I knew I had to have one!

And there is a different sports theme on each side. Are you ready for some football?!

Roller skating!

Good old baseball!

These flowers are waiting to be planted somewhere.

It's rather windy today, so I just couldn't get a shot of this Mary Engelbriet flag that hangs from the back porch. Our daughter Liz had to step in and hold it, and I purposely made her go put on her sweatpants from college, which also have red on them. Mean Mommy!
If you would like to see more reds, head over to It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue hosts this party each and every week!

What a cute little red sports lunch box! They sure don't make them like that anymore. Do you remember the PeeChee school folders that had all the sports activities on them?

The lunch pail/box is darling, sports figures and all!

DID SOMEONE MENTION SCARLET?

Did someone mention scarlet
Or was it red I heard?
Perhaps it was a varlet
Or a vermilion bird
That shouted out the color
That’s dearest to my heart.
(It makes me feel much duller
If red is not a part.)

Love your new lunch box - congratulations on finally winning it! I'm glad your daughter was willing to wear her Illinois pants for the photo op. My daughter had to be called to service today for my "red" blog post, too. Thanks for sharing with us at Rednesday!
