REDNESDAY - YARD SALE & THRIFT STORE STUFF
Man, time flies doesn't it! Welcome to REDnesday once again!
A few thrifted finds ~ I love red plaid, always have. Must have started with the red plaid lunchbox/thermos I had in elementary school! Here I found a handkerchief and a Liz Clairborne mini purse. The cashier at the thrift store was going to charge me 50 cents until she saw the LC name on the inside, then said $1.00. Ah, the price we have to pay for designer labels, LOL!
Here, the book was thrifted, the Bible yard saled (this spelling always makes me think of salad!). I love the colors of the Pooh cover; 1961 edition.
I finally got a Hollyhock to grow from seed! And it's red, hooray! I don't know why, but I haven't been able to grow them from seed for about 10 years now, and I refuse to pay for a potted plant! I have it against the back of the house, south side. Now I just have to do a little "landscaping" around it to make it more presentable!
And, last, is my RED computer chair, with the new RED gingham pillow I got at a yard sale, with my RED mousepad and RED vitamin bottle in the background!
A LAST MINUTE EDIT: I was just over at the Blog O'Cheese where CheeseBoy has a post and video on "a real live celebrity". I had to snap a pic of the guy, Ben Cooper, on his porch ~ look at this cool red chair, I love it!
Time for your delightful reds!
