HAPPY REDNESDAY!



Welcome back to Rednesday! Hope all you U.S.-ers had a great long weekend! I had a mild stomach bug last week, but am back to normal (whatever that is) now. I've been doing a "mulch marathon" this week. With my babysitting money, I've been buying a few bags each week. I'm up to 13 bags and will probably need 3 or 4 more - whew!

I noticed that Mister had a few dirty coffee mugs on the counter and thought they'd make a nice photo! The flag one is from a set of four Ralph Lauren I got at a yard sale last year.

This is one of the cubbyholes in the unit beside my computer. I got the beer glass at a thrift shop only because my Dad used to drink Black Label, and it's a nice memory. The cup is Adams of England called "The Season of Blossoms", a yard sale find. The game pieces are from a vintage Wide World Travel Game. After I loaded the photo here, Katherine (Teen) walked by and asked if I liked it. I said, yeah, it's got red in it. She giggled and said she had turned the yellow ship in the opposite direction on purpose! (There is no dust, there is no dust, there is no dust . . . )

A pile of baskets with the cherries box, and my canisters on the book shelf.

And, now for the patriotics that I didn't get to show last week. Mister's humongous 48-star flag:

A few shelves in the living room:

A close-up of the green dish and butter knife. I haven't looked up the maker of the green dish, but it probably had a lid - wish it was red or blue! The knife is a Wm. Rogers & Son that says "United States of America" with an eagle and shield. Wouldn't it be cool to have a whole set in this pattern?

And, that wraps it up for me! I hope to see lots of red vacation shots this summer!

Instead of buying more perennials, I should take a cue from you and spend my money on mulch! LOVE how that 48 star flag looks, hanging from your beautiful barn. No Rednesday for me. I'm all redded out!

So glad you are feeling much better! That's always good news! :) I "met" another cherry lover online and I told her about Rednesday. :)

LOVED all your fun red things - especially the cute vintage clipart and the adorable little house behind the game pieces near our computer. It's so darling!

Thanks for another fun visit. See you in a bit. Off to hug my granddog now. :)

Your patriot decor is just right, and I must say I am very impressed by your hubby's flag - wow! I have mugs like your flag one that I bought years ago, but I don't think they're Ralph Lauren - don't you just love a yard sale! Thanks for hosting another fun Rednesday.

It has been a while since I did some red, so I had to stop to visit! I love your canister set. Hubby's brother has possession of a 48 star flag of the families, but not as huge as yours!
Glad you are feeling better.~Faythe!

The last green one that is not red, is it a napkin ring?
