Rednesday

I didn't forget that today is Rednesday - I just got busy with packaging up some eBay sales and watching my beloved Africam and, well, here it is - past noon!

This is the inside cover of one of my vintage children's book, Sunny Meadow Stories. I love these books!

And, here is a funky candlestick that Mister keeps on his bathroom windowsill. I don't know if it's vintage or not - there are no markings.
That's it for today - see you at VTT tomorrow!

Cute little book to add to your red collection but how about that glass! Cranberry glass is so very cape cod.

Hope you are enjoying the spring sunshine.

Those old children's books are so wonderful. They don't make the beautiful graphs like those any more. And the Red ware is so very elegent. I love the Cape Cod look.
