It's REDnesday time! After you're done looking at my reds, be sure to head over to It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue hosts this party every week.
Remember the quilt that our Sue shared a few weeks ago, and offered to whoever wanted it? Well, I was lucky enough to be the first to ask for it, so I got it! It's the bottom quilt on the left, and it's full of reds.
The fabric with the watering cans on it is my favorite!
When I was antiquing last week, I found a bunch of Peter Pan storybook records, really cheap. I loved storybook records when I was little, and I hope to eventually find The Gingerbread Man, my favorite.
You see, I needed these records for my little old record player! And if you're wondering whether I actually listen to records on this vintage player, the answer is YES!
I found these vintage kitchen towels a few weeks ago at an estate sale. I think the one on the right, with the red morning glories, is my all-time favorite.
And they both went into the old shopping basket full o' towels.
I've been rearranging the shelves on this cabinet thingie that Mr. Old Glory made for me that's sitting on the back porch. He also made that replica of our house on the top shelf.
And finally, if you haven't yet entered my giveaway, and would like to, please click HERE. It's open until midnight, April 11th.
Now head over to Sue's to see more reds!

You know I'm a sucker for all things miniature. Your house is adorable. I have all kinds of 45 records in my craft room. When Josie joins me for crafting we play them. Your Rednesday posts are always a favorite with me. Such lovely vignettes.

I also loved those storybook records when I was a child...but I think I especially liked that the records were yellow!
Those towels are quite a find!

Love the little record player and gorgeous towels!

How are your flowers? It's supposed to get quite cold here overnight, so I ran out and tried to cover the tulips.

Take care~

The morning glory towel: two thumbs up! I have an apron with that watering can print, and I want a full bolt of it. One of my all-time favorite prints.
