REDNESDAY



Don't you love it when you find something in just the right color, when you weren't even looking for it? I found this tissue box at the grocery store, and it matches exactly with the color of the shelf that I always keep tissues on!

Mister and I went to the Salvation Army store today. I picked up this cute top for Becky. Katherine, the 18-yr-old, got a few Disney Fairies books -she collects them.

I got this totally awesome snow globe for me. It's a Hallmark, and plays The Star Spangled Banner!

What are the chances? I found this metal tray that matches the coasters in my Etsy shoppe! This will go on Etsy, too.

What a fun trip to Salvation Army! My fave was the cute snow globe! I have a granddaughter who loves them and this was so unique - great for celebrating the patriotic holidays and putting a sparkle in those grandkids eyes. :) Thanks for another terrific Rednesday! :)

Gee, I wonder what my favorite thing is here. Could it be that fantastically patriotic snowglobe? I love it, and that tray is pretty awesome too. They're all great finds, and I wish the SA near me was good, but it's icky and I feel like I need a shower after I leave!
Happy REDnesday!

Hi Sue ! ! Love your "reds"...I'm sure having fun at your Rednesday!

Melody said...

Hi Sue! Thanks for reminding me it's Rednesday....Dad got out of the hospital Sun. night again after another week stay...sigh.....
I can't even believe it's March already.
Love the red show today. That tray is great and what 'Irish' luck to find it to make a set with the coasters! Okay, the florist is poppin out of me...................
that tray is from the early 60's. The carnation design is very indicitive of the era...and I have an Amer. Horticultural Society date planner book from 1960 that has the same pic in it......sorry. but no, you cannot have my planner to round out the set. hehe

Ann said...

Well you had a very prosperous shopping day, the tissue box is perfect on that shelf. I love the darling little shirt---so cute. And just by being a little frugal, she gets an adorable outfit!!!!
Happy Rednesday.
