Welcome to REDnesday, my friends! I went to a thrift store today (that's operated by my mother in law's church) to drop off some stuff - toys, etc. This is more of a true second-hand place with very little vintage, to my dismay! So usually I'm lucky if I come out with one item that suits me. But today I came out with almost as much as I dropped off - and all for $6.00! And, wouldn't ya know it - my camera is in the truck that Mister took to Bible study tonight, so I can't show them off!

But I will show off some small bowls I have that are red. These first two are vintage Fire King polka dots. (FYI - the S&P's are W. S. George 'Blushing Rose' pattern).
This set was picked up at a local discount store that's kind of like Big Lots (called Ocean State Job Lot). The largest bowl is about as big as a good-sized cereal bowl.
These are Melamine and are from Home Goods, $3 on clearance. Survey question: are they cherries or apples? I honestly can't tell, even though I'm calling them cherries!

Have a great week! (I still haven't made it to Michael's!)

Oh Sue...
You can't ask hard questions at the end of the day. I love the bowls, and I would call them cherries, but I am afraid someone else is going to say apples. You know how that song goes. They are whatever you want them to be. That's what I say. Gosh darn it they are as cute as they can be.

Thanks for sharing. I so love them. I am lovin those S&P shakers too.

Have a beautiful day sweetie. Country hugs...Sherry

I love the polka dot bowls and the striped ones too! As for whether those are apples or cherries on the other bowls, let's call them cherries!
Happy Rednesday Sue!

Definately cherries, I think. All the bowls are so cute. Can't wait to see the haul you made for $6.00. I love good thrifting days!

Hi Sue,
I am loving all the bowls, especially the striped ones! I would say those are cherries on the last ones. Have a nice REDnesday.

I love all the bowls. Actually all of your RED things. The fruit could be apples or cherries. You could go either way with that one. But because they are yours, I will call them cherries!

Happy REDnesday!

I'm fond of bowls, especially the ones with red on it, so I love this post! But.... I think the cherries are apples! In my cabinet they definately would be apples (I've a little "apple-collection), but I think in your cabinet they are cherries!

After my quickie post yesterday I am finally getting around to commenting!

I just love your bowls. Those polka dot Fire King are adorable! I don't recall ever seeing any like that. The bell shape is beautiful. I sure wish we had some store like Ocean State Job Lot and Home Goods here in Iowa. Our Big Lots went out of business, so I don't even have that anymore.

Thanks for sharing and hosting!

I haven't gotten much blogging (reading or posting) done this week. But I had to stop in and see your REDS this week!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the little polka dot bowls!!! I NEED to find me some!

Now the bowl with the apples, I mean cherries, I immediately saw cherries....until I read the word apples....now I'm not sure! haha! Still cute though!

I hope to be back next week...camera isn't working right now...so maybe not...but I'll be back to read at least!
