I'm going to start off with some red plaids - to help us get in the mood for Autumn picnics and tailgate parties!
I had bought these vintage oriental lights for Teen, but they never worked and, of course, I'm too lazy to check all the bulbs! But they're real cute anyways!
These (have 2) are some vintage hanging lantern thingies that pretty much match the above lights!

And, here are some yellow and peach Portulaca and a red Marigold!

This is my first time here. Love red and love your reds! I have never had much patience for finding out why a string of lights work either, but, yours are great!

Well, now you've done it. I can't make up mind what to do for dinner: a nice fall picnic with some warm apple cider or chinese food? Decisions, decisions...

Hope you packed hot chocolate in the thermos...yummmmm.
And even if the lites don't work they are so cute.
Warm autumn blessings ;-)

Oh I love those plaid tins! They do make you think of cool day picnics or hot chocolate, a red plaid blanket and a seat in the stands at a football game!

Happy Rednesday!

The red plaids make me look forward to the cooler weather. It is still warm(hot) here. I finally got my REDnesday post up. Not feeling well today.

Hope you are having a great day today.

Hi Sue,
I love your red plaid thermos!, I had a lunch pail and thermos the same when I was a little girl, I guess that makes me vintage LOL. It brought back found memories.
Take care and enjoy your day,
