REDNESDAY -




Happy Rednesday, everyone! Mister came home with this moth last week for me to photograph and i.d. I realized that it was in front of my yard flag - perfect for Rednesday! Oh, and it's a Giant Leopard Moth.

This is an older umbrella that has a pretty floral design.

Close up of the handle. "Handle Made in Italy"

Picked up this thermos at the church yard sale on Friday, along with some umbrella picks.


Also got this serving platter and two dinner plates at the church also. It's called Memory Lane, and I already have four dinner plates, one soup bowl, and a creamer and sugar.

Two Gaillardia in the garden.

Ms. Sue,
Ahh...a beautiful selection of "reds"! I love the umbrella. I will have to gather my "red" together this evening but I wanted to pop over early and say a big THANK YOU for my Giveaway gifts from you. My letter carrier left them on my front step this afternoon. Despite the shower that soaked the box I'm happy to say all the goodies arrived in perfect condition. It was like Christmas in June opening up all the little packages. How fun! Again, thank you so very much.
Hugs

I love that thermos and those umbrella sticks! I bet you could figure out how to use those umbrella sticks in a crafty, creative way!
I made a huge mistake when I added my rednesday picture...I was supposed to add a picture of our coonhound, Daisy, wearing a red vintage bandana but instead I posted our cat, Henry, snuggled under a vintage granny square quilt! Oops!

Very interesting moth. Nice selection of reds, and I just love these plates.

Hi Sue~
I like your old Thermos and the umbrellas for drinkies. Also, the red transferware plate collection is a winner :) Happy Rednesday~

Now Sue, how can we be clear across the country from each other and have the exact same stuff? I have that exact flag and I collect those Memory Lane dishes. I have a bit more than a complete set of 8. Got most of mine on ebay. Those are some very familiar reds you've got! :)

Sue, you got some great reds at the church yard sale. Church yard sales are THE best. You just never know what somebody's going to show up with. That is such a great umbrella. Really interesting looking moth. laurie

Necel from the Old House in Texas said...

I see we have some things in common. I, too, have an older red umbrella, although, yours is much prettier. And I have some red and white transferware, very similar to yours. Cheers!

Melody said...

Hi Sue! Thanks agin for hosting Rednsday. This is fun as usual.
I love the redware.
Hey ya know you can always build an outdoor wall......take post and anchor in the ground. Then take those prefabed 6x8 fence pieces. Ya know what I'm talkin about..folk use em to separate house yards..you see em at Lowe's all the time...anyway, you can do a single 8 ft long panel to back a seating area or take 2 and do a corner (have 2 walls haha) seating or table area. Hey if ya have no walls create em..LOL...Jim just groans.

Love all of your reds today Sue, but I'm more intrigued by the moth! I love bugs, and I've never seen a moth like that before. It's beautiful!
No reds for me this week. Hopefully I'll be able to join in again next week!
Happy REDnesday!

So nice that you've found more items to match your memory lane dishware.

We are renovating the house....need I say more LOL I cant wait to post some real pictures! In the meantime, thanks for being the perfect hostess as usual.
