REDNESDAY


Ok, seriously, I thought this was the week where I would not be able to find a single red thing to share, but as I'm finding out, there's always more!

I forgot about this little flour sifter that I planted up and put by the back door. How could I forget? I see it every day!

This old metal bowl holds my dish scrubbies. It's also a shameless excuse to show my Happy Apple again!

And last we have a vintage Christmas bell, with a little elf holding on for dear life. It was only 25 cents, and I got it........somewhere last week. I used to be able to remember where I got every single thing. I'm kind of frightened to think that maybe this means I have too many things. What do you think?!
Linking up to Rednesday, at It's A Very Cherry World.

Oh no, we can NEVER run out of reds! Love the little sifter. Looks even cuter planted. Sometimes I think I need to quit buying and that I have too much. Then the next thing I know, I'm saying "what the heck, enjoy!"

He is hanging on for dear life. I can just imagine him sitting on that thrift shelf being pushed around, hoping someone would take him home and not drop him and not stuff him in a attic with the rest of the Christmas goods. Then came Carol, and he was the safe and sound in her red hot world and he was now even famous...on a blog.
Awesome life for an elf!

Thanks for sharing!

The sifter is a great idea for a planter!

The sifter is a cutie. I think maybe not being able to remember where you got something is not from having too much but because you have been so many places :>)

Love your eds today. Just catching up on my visiting.
I love the idea of using the sifter as a vase. I may try that in the Kitchen with one of my sifters.....

Hugs,
