Welcome everyone! Hope you've had a good week. Check out my Giveaway this week. I posted it yesterday (Monday). I've a problem with (not) doing a Tuesday post, because I'm doing Rednesday on Tuesday night, which gets posted on Blogger as a Tuesday post. Sooooo, for all you entering the Giveaway, I'll just count the Rednesday posts twice.

Pretty Fall leaves this week, with lots of red ones!

Which turned into this mess on Sunday! Nice "throwback" red uniforms, huh?
(The above and below photos are for Dana and her Beantown Boy!) This is my cheerleader who watches the games from atop the hutch in the living room, nestled inbetween the red coach's challenge flag and the yellow ref's penalty flag!
Mister found three repro circus posters while cleaning out a garage on his property in a neighboring town. I'm guessing they're from the 60's. He's keeping a tiger one to hang in the barn, one went on ebay, and I'm keeping this to hang in my yellow-walled laundry room. I think, besides the red and yellow and great graphics, I like it for the critters that I see on my beloved Africam!

Now, these cute little plates are from a 1930's Ohio Art Humpty Dumpty tea set for children. I decided to be crafty and glued them to a grosgrain ribbon, and this is now cheerfully hanging in my kitchen!
My red perennial mums have survived the frost and snow!
I can't wait to see your reds today, and don't forget the giveaway!

I grudgingly congratulate you on the Patriots huge win on Sunday. Now let's move on to those cute tin plates! What a great way to display them! And that circus poster is amazing, with those vibrant colors!
Happy, happy Rednesday!

Seeing all those beautiful colored leaves makes me want to rake a big pile up and jump in them!

You are so lucky all your Mums survived....All my flowers bit the dust.
Your leaves are pretty, it seems all our leaves are falling before they have a chance to get pretty.

RAH! RAH! Go team Go!
Great red post today.
Red Fall Blessings coming your way ;-)

LOL! You and I both have a bear in our post today. I did not realize that until I check your pictures. Fun post you have. I love the way you have the plates displayed. Works great for a narrow wall space. The leaves are so pretty! We are getting a lot of that here too. I have been noticing how pretty everything is as I drive to and from work. The vineyards are so pretty in the fall. I have not had a chance to get pictures of the vineyards. Either I am busy, or I don't have the camera with me. Maybe today. I will try to take the camera with me in my purse when I go to work.

Have a great REDnesday!
