REDNESDAY

Welcome to another Rednesday! I'm getting into my new school routine, getting up before 7:00 a.m. for Jade's arrival, getting her fed and dressed to go to school at 8:30. Come back to take Becky to the high school at 9:00. (Right now she's there for two classes a day and we'll try to up it a class every few weeks, and hope that's not rushing her too much.) Pick her up at 11:15; pick Jade up at 3:00 on Mon, Tues, and Wed; then she leaves at 6:00 those days. She doesn't come Thursdays and Fridays, so it's like I have a long weekend each week!

What's red this week? Well, a new dotty spotty rug for the door - that no one likes except me. Even the cats were afraid of it the first day! But, hey, for $4.50 on clearance at Wally World (WalMart), they'll all have to suffer with it!

I also picked up these adorable mushroom plant-waterer-thingies at my local Ocean State Job Lot for $1 each. They have holes on the back side of the top mushroom for water, but I'm just using them for decoration.

Next, is my latest red purse, that I got at a thrift store about 3 or 4 months ago.

A simple display of Fall decorations.

Mister found this vintage Pepsi bottle . . . guess where? . . . on the side of the road with some stuff! It goes nicely with the Red Rock bottle that he picked up some months ago. (I keep saran wrap on my bowls on the top shelf 'cuz I hate to dust!)

And, my coleuses looking ever-so-grand in front of the graceful Kiss-Me-Over-The-Garden-Gate (polygonum) flowers!

What's on your red plate today?

LOVE the rug as well! And so fun to share early moments of Autumn. Fall has definitely made an early appearance around here - most of the time, and my whole Sandwich Generation family is reveling in it - from senior mom to sweet grandkids. Definitely my fave season! :) Have a lovely week!

I'm smiling at the plastic wrap on the bowls ... it's a good idea ... it has me thinking !!! What else could we seal up?

I haven't had coleus for a few years ... yours are so beautiful and it doesn't look like they've gone to seed yet!

Thanks for Rednesday ....

I love your red polka dot rug and would like to request that the lovies (human and otherwise) be careful about wiping their feet on it! Thanks for hostessing the party, I finally sat down from running the kids to soccer and Scouts and was able to link up- glad to visit the other links!

Hugs,
Mary

I love that rug too, but I can just picture a cat being nervous around it. Cats are so weird!
Have a great week!
