REDNESDAY - ANOTHER CHERRY DAY!






I have two cherry items to show you today, one thrifted and one yard-saled.

This first doily, or hot pad was from a yard sale. I didn't ask if it was hand-made or not.

And this charmer I got at a thrift store, loaded down with the ugliest fake flower arrangement. I pulled out the flowers, florist's foam and all, handed them to the clerk and told her to throw them away - and she did!
Now, what should I plant in it - cherry tomatoes?

IF YOU ARE TRYING TO LINK, THERE IS AN INTERNAL SERVER ERROR AT MCKLINKY. (11:30 p.m. Eastern time) I HOPE IT IS CORRECTED QUICKLY! IF YOU LEAVE A COMMENT, WE'LL KNOW WHO TO VISIT!

Hi Sue!

both of your red finds are so cute. Yup, I would go with planting cherry tomatoes in there after all, grape tomatoes would just be silly! LOL

Oh and I like your tablecloth (under the pot holder)!

Mary said...

Hi Sue,
I love the cloth under your pretty hot pad. 'Course, the hot pad is darling, too. Cherry tomatoes would be very fitting in what looks like a Mary Englebreit pot. Good finds :) Happy REDnesday~

p.s. I forgot to say "pretty header!" :D

I love your new header Sue! It's so pretty, and you've got such a talent for making the cutest graphics each week!
I think you have to plant cherry tomatoes in that pot, don't you? It couldn't be more perfect!
Happy REDnesday!

Your new graphic just cracked me up! Love the sweet header too. Wow! Did you get some great cherry treats. The hot pad/trivet is just too cute.

Mcklinky is not showing up at the end of your post for me to link up. Help.

LV said...

You did a great job on your reds for today. I like them both, but the flower pot is the best.

Ann said...

Hi Sherry, Your reds are lovely. I really like the potholder. When I try to post my rednesday through McKLinky I get an error message.

I'm so Sorry Sue, in my last comment I addressed you as Sherry. I was looking up at the post above mine that was also commenting on mcklinky and just saw her name and typed it, and didn't even spell her name correctly. Oh, the evils of aging! :(

Dawn said...

Hello Sue, hope all is going well. The hot pad looks like a lot of work went into it. I bet it is hand made. I need to grab your new button, it's so cute! I still have the winter one up. I did get a Rednesday post up this week. I feel like my week's off balance when I don't do one!
Hugs,
Dawn

I truly hope he stays at the new job and all starts to go much better! I will keep a decal saved just for you! :)

I am glad Mr. Mcklinky finally behaved. Your party is too fun to miss out. I just love seeing all the reds and even though I might have been stretching it with Strawberries, I think it works.
