REDNESDAY



Welcome to another Autumn Rednesday! Did you see on my right sidebar that I won ImagiMeri's giveaway? I'm so thrilled! She will make a statue based on a picture that I chose. Her work is awesome! Go check her out!

I did a bit of yard sale-ing and thrift shopping this past weekend. At my fave thrift shop I found these three vintage ornament boxes - and this was on Monday! Don't know why nobody scooped them up over the weekend, but they're mine now! Although I did have to do a bit of taping and glueing.


These are the other reds I picked up ~ a length of Pokemon "Pikachu" flannel fabric for Katherine, two little elves, a 1969 Snoopy mouth harp (which will go on my Etsy), and a Meakin red transferware mug (this makes #3, so I now have yet another official collection!).

Now, personally, I don't celebrate Halloween, but I do love all the vintage graphics! I found this through Google a while ago (forget where) and thought of all you Halloween decorators and just knew you'd like to have it for a label! (yeah, I know it's more orange than red!)


Last, I have a silly little photo of pretty birds eating out of a wheelbarrow! This is a live feed camera in Australia called Backyard Galah Cam. They have the prettiest birds Down Under! It's about 2:00 a.m. there as I'm typing this at noon EST. I took this photo earlier this week.

Now it's your turn!

What a lovely group of 'shiny bulbs' ... good fine. Congrats on your win, you lucky gal. Meri is just a peach of a lady ... her creations are exquisite. I visited her in her studio & was in total awe of all I was surrounded by. It is hard to take it all in, there is so much beauty.

Love the birds ...

Have a beautiful day ~

What a fun autumn and fall post with hints of happy holiday fun to come! I never did much with Halloween in the past, other than take the kids to Harvest and church parties. But my grandkids do a LOT and "carry me" along with them in the fun, so I'm already putting on my thinking cap of fun plans for that holiday, along with toying with various ideas for easy Christmas gifts crafts for kids and seniors alike - to be sweet gifts for the whole Sandwich Generation family from the elderly parents on down to the youngest grand-babe. :) Lots of fun in planning, isn't there. :) Have a lovely Rednesday.
