REDNESDAY



Welcome everyone, especially if this is your first Rednesday!

I had to run to A. C. Moore to get some paper for my Tag-Along, and I happened to notice this cherries sheet!


I'm a few days late with my October Tag-Along, but that's okay - better late than never! Here's a close-up:
And here it is hanging on my calendar!

Mister and I spontaneously went to a local antique store last week, but (believe it or not) there was "nothing" there. The only thing I liked, and bought, was this adorable vintage first aid box for $2.00. It's 2-1/2" x 3-1/2".
Now, this is too cute to keep all to myself, so I scanned the cover and made a few graphics to share with you all! Enjoy!

Cute tag a long! I'm trying to think of a way to use the First Aid box label. Think I'll have to copy and then figure out a use....Thank You!

Hi Sue! Love the new blog banner and colors:) I've been out soooo long I figured you all musta thought I'd moved outa Blogland. Just can't seem to get the fingers moving on the keyboard for the past few weeks. Been runnin around like a chicken.....you know....so much to do so little time.....by the time I get to the laptop it's 11p I read a few posts and fall asleep at the table...sigh....I'm gettin old.
I'm just happy I made it this week I missed Rednesday and everyone. Thanks so much for hosting a fun get-together. Your reds are great. Jim saw your first aid kit box..LOL.. and wants one for the van. Think I'll take the image, copy it, and glue it to the top of the red first aid kit he just bought from Wal-Mart. Little things make him happy.
Type ya later;)

Bea Christianson said...

All your reds are delightful. I have to say I love the Autumn tag on the calendar the best. One, because I am very much enjoying Autumn this year, and two - because the calendar with the cats is so adorable! Thank you for a fun Rednesday!
