REDNESDAY


(well, almost on Wednesday!)


Hi everyone! Welcome to November's first Rednesday!

Here's a bunch of rose hips left on the bush in the backyard ~

I have, unintentionally, started a pin collection on my perpetual calendar. From left to right ~ a mushroom house from Made In Pixieland, a vintage New England Patriots pin that Mister found in the barn, a gorgeous rhinestone pin from a yard sale, World Vision's Step Into Africa, and All Things Bright and Beautiful from Sweet Things. They all have a touch of red in them, even the rhinestones if you look at them the right way!

Went to the post office thrift store today after voting. I was delighted to find some Christmas this-and-thats.

And not to be left out, a Transformers backpack for Teen! LOL! It even has blinking red lights on it. Too funny!

You have great vintage finds - where do you put it all? I have no more room in my house.

Loved the pin collection.

I'm a pin collector too. I have a large group of them pinned to strips of ribbon and hung on an old curtain rod above my craft bench in my workroom.

Hi, I was really excited to link up for my 1st Rednesday, I don't see my link, though. I'll check back to see if it shows up. Thanks for hosting.

Sue..the picture with the rose hips is breathtaking!! I've always loved that look. My oldest son was such a Transformers fan...he is 27 now and would look funny carrying a backpack to his engineering job, but I'm sure he like one too :)

Blessings and thanks for hosting us RED-bies!

Oh what fun Vintage Christmas finds! Love the little ceramic angel.
Everyone looks like they have some great finds too. Sorry I missed this Rednesday. Seems my allergies have flared with a vengence.
