REDNESDAY



Happy September Rednesday friends! It's almost time to get out your cosy sweaters and sweatshirts for the Fall! I've started getting out some of my Fall decorations; or, should I say back-to-school dec's ~ my display thermoses, and also my Royal China Memory Lane dishes with acorns around the rims. I don't know if the smallest thermos, on the right, belonged to a picnic set or something ~ it is a Thermos brand, but it says "Happy h Home" and has W's all over it (which I know stands for Wickett!)


I finally found something to do with my big, wide, red rickrack. I'm displaying "the Queen's jewels" on it right above my computer!

Cookbooks and a vintage little wheelbarrow!

This was a nice treat a few nights ago ~ male Oblong Winged Katydid! They don't like to be found. I don't know what he was doing up on my deck, but I sure surprised him when I let the cat in!
This one is 2 inches/5 cm long. If you don't know what the Katydid sounds like, go to this page, scroll down to "Some Memorable Songs" and click on the graph for common true katydid.

Hi Sue!

I love your vintage thermos collection and your giant rick rack pin holder. The katydid must ahve been such a surprise! I didn't hear many this year ..it must ahve been an "off" year for them here. Happy Rednesday!

Awesome REDS! And I love the chair you found the katydid on too. Feels too hot for school, but school did start around here in August. When I was young, school did not start until the day after Labor Day. I just noticed Phyllis Whitney in your side bar. I like to read her books too!

I love your thermos collection Sue. It's so perfect for Fall! And I miss Rednesday, but I'm finding myself having to do more and more things over at my Mom's. Hoping to find a spectacular red thingie at the flea market to share one of these days!
Have a great week!
