Rednesday is Fun and Giveaway Update

Oh my Goodness. I finally just got my glasses fixed. For the past 5 days I have been wearing a pair of $1.99 "readers" from Target, until I could get my glasses repaired. Although the readers were fine for basic reading skills, I was unable to use them for extended times at the computer, so that sadly meant no blogging!

I feel bad that broken glasses coincided with my One-Year Blogaversary. I have not yet finished posting all the goodies that the lucky winner will be receiving. Therefore, I am extending the giveaway to midnight tomorrow night, Veterans' Day. Thank you to all who have left such fabulous comments, I will be around visiting you. Thank you.

Now it is time to join in the fun for Wednesday is Rednesday with Sue @ Its a Very Cherry World (Please click here for your invite). Always fun and colorful, please be sure to see what other red goodies are showing up at this party. Before you head over to Sue's blog, please let me welcome you to my home.

This is my front door entryway. Personally, I think the deep red of the runner is the perfect color to welcome visitors to my home. (Not to mention that it doesn't show the dirt as much.) The floor is the original 1853 wood floor. In case you are wondering what is sitting in the corner, it is an elephant foot umbrella stand. Now I must apologize to all the animal lovers, as I myself am. But please let me state, that this piece is from the mid-1800's and I did not contribute to its demise. However, I have given the foot a good home (estate sale $25.00).

Now for something a little more cheerier red, this beautiful tablecloth. Perfect for a picnic or an afternoon of playing bridge with the ladies and eating tea sandwiches.

A cheery apron and oh-so-cute clothespin bag help to make the chores a little more pleasant, don't you agree?




Clothespin-holding puppy, yup, that just makes you want to whistle while hanging out your laundry.



Of course more red aprons, a thermos and tin to add to my every growing collection. Red and the Kitchen just go hand-in-hand. (These were all church sale finds for a dime apiece)


Of course, there is always aqua to complement the red. I love this color combination.

One last collection, my red handled kitchen utensils. Oh my I probably have way too many. But who's counting?

So please stop by and say hello to Sue and also don't forget that the giveaway closes this Thursday. Thank you.

Got it at Goodwill
