I almost didn't make it! Teen hooked up her Wii to the internet so we can watch Netflix movies directly on the t.v. and, in doing so, lost the wireless connections to Mister's and my pc's. But, thank goodness, we got it all straightened out.

This is my red pocket knife that sliced my forefinger yesterday while sharpening garden tools! Right on the knuckle, too, so I had to put a makeshift splint on my finger so I wouldn't bend it and bleed to death!

This is a cute napkin holder that I use for notebooks and paper and stuff.

And, here are some red tulips that popped up yesterday!
I have been using every available minute this past week to soak up the sun while puttering in my garden - it's good for the soul!

That's such an adorable graphic you made for this week, Sue!
I used to have a great knife like that, carried in my purse at all times, but it got confiscated at some event where they search your purse!
Your tulips are gorgeous, especially mixed in with the lamb's ear. There's nothing better than spending all day working in the garden, is there?!
Happy REDnesday!

Diann @ The Thrifty Groove said...

I so agree with Carol, I love the new graphic. I am going to swipe it for next week's post!

Your tulips are so pretty I have one lonely yellow tulip that hasn't quite opened yet.

Right now, the way I have been dropping and reaking things, I don't dare touch anything sharp! LOL

That wire birdhouse make a cute noteook holder!

Have a great Rednesday!

Oh, Sue, those knuckles are hard to heal, bending all the time and such! Love the way your organzied the note books. We had sunny 80's here yesterday and today it's cold, cold rain! That's spring for ya!

Cheeseboy said...

That red knife is pretty sweet.

Linda said...

Nice red knife. I have a swiss army pocket knife my Honey gave me. I am careful cause I am a klutz and would cut my self easily. Love the new graphic and used it on my Red post!


Anne Fannie said...

Hi Sue
Gardening can be dangerous! Especially with a sharp knife!
The knuckle is the worse spot for a cut! Glad to hear you got your computer problem ironed out before Redwednesday!
REd tulips are so pretty! Yours is a vivid red!
Happy Redwednesday!

Charlotte said...

Happy Rednesday! Hope you didn't injure yourself too bad! I also posted pictures of tulips! Spring has the most beautiful red flowers!

Angela said...

I got me some tulips this year too....and I'm lovin them...Loved all the red you shared...

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Such useful reds AND a gorgeous red right at the very end. Don't you love when you can repurpose something? The napkin holder is so adorable and better as a notebook holder.

Denise Marie said...

of course you have a cute lil red pocket knife...no red bloody finger stumps please. lol

love that birdhouse mag holder.

Red love to ya!! Have a cherry day.

AshTreeCottage said...

I'm sorry about your knuckle. I cut myself with my husband's Buck knife once. I had to make my own splint too. Ouch!! If you are going to have a knife, it's best in red!! Thanks for being our weekly Red Hostess with the Mostess!!

Avril Miller said...

Hooray for RedWednesday!!! I love the fact that you adore cherries and the color red just as much as I do!!! I'm so happy to come across someone that has such a passion in life like me. :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog so I could find you!

Carey said...

Hi Sue,
Hope your finger is better. Love the picture of the flower. Looks like you have a pretty yard. Have a very happy Rednesday.

Shelley Germann said...

Sorry to hear about your finger! That stinks when there is outside work to be done!

Please share more of your garden! The snippets you've shown are just beautiful!

And thanks for the heads-up on Netflix and the Wii. We have been waiting for the day to take advantage of this great service! I hope we can avoid the connection problems you've had to tackle!

Have a great day!

Ooo, yuck, ouch! That sounds like not much fun~you must have sharpened them but good. I do hate it when that happens. My left index finger just healed up from a mean ol' burn.
I like your red house napkin holder - love how you thought "outside the box" and use it for storage.
Happy REDnesday and take care~

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

Sorry about your knuckle. (It was very polite of you not to show us the blood even if it was red!)

Cass @ That Old House said...

Well thank GOODNESS you didn't bleed to death! We'd have missed Rednesday. :-)
Love that little red basket, and MY red tulips are featured in my post today, too.
I need more red tulips....

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble said...

Love your post! Not too much time this week and had to miss Rednesday! Hope to be back next week!!

Rita Kent at TesoroFino.Com said...

Now Sue....how come you didn't have your teen photograph your bleeding episode from the red pocket knife? You would have had an additional red photo to add to the post! :)

I was in a rush yesterday, and I am sorry I forgot to comment! How rude of me!

Hope your finger is better, and your tetanus shot is up to date!

I love that red knife, so vintage. I just went into your Etsy shop and will be checking it often. I love your 40's and 50's vintage stuff!
