REDNESDAY-Rearranging My Reds!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my reds for Rednesday! When you're done, head over to It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue hosts Rednesday every week.
I'm constantly rearranging all of my stuff. It's easy to do when you've got alot of junk! Do you do that too? The last time I saw that canister, it was down in the basement, where alot of my junk goes to hibernate. I spotted it when I was doing laundry, and decided that I wanted it back up in the kitchen. The rest of this stuff was elsewhere in the kitchen, but it's all living together for awhile on the counter.
I also spotted this vintage Wonder Bread wrapper while I was in the basement. No, there's not vintage bread in it, just a piece of loaf-shaped foam! I haven't found a spot for it yet, but it will need to go somewhere that kitty can't get at it and rip it apart!
I finally took the Valentine's Day tablecloth off of this little table in the kitchen. Geez I'm lazy...
And I replaced it with a vintage cloth. LOVE the tulips! Those old breadboxes underneath hold cookbooks, miscellaneous junk, and craft paint that I'm too lazy to go down to the basement to get. Do you sense a theme here?
I recently won this pillow in a giveaway at Hey Mom! What's For Dinner? Isn't it gorgeous?! Fran made it herself, and those embroidered roses are part of a vintage table runner.
I love it, and I think it goes perfectly with our old couch. You might remember me telling you that this couch used to be my grandparents', and that my Mom, who just turned 87, says that she remembers it from when she was little. WOW, that's one reeeally old couch!

Now head on over to Sue's to see more reds!

OOOH how I miss my mohair couches! They are so hard to find now, but I will always keep looking! My Grandma had a maroon one, but her sister, Aunt Ida, had a two toned maroon and grey!

The Wonder Bread wrapper takes me back to the days when I would watch cartoons on our old black and white tv and eat Wonder Bread spread with Miracle Whip...my favorite snack. Thanks for the time machine! =D
