REDNESDAY



I swear, kids have much better fashions these days than adults! I'm always finding the cutest outfits in the Girls section at stores. Jade showed up yesterday with this adorable red hoodie, covered in bling . . . soooo cute! (beside it is my red coat and scarf)

Last night I made a cat house for the cats. Chloe decided to take up residence in it, so Becky moved it up to her room, because Chloe is her cat. Here, I took a picture of Becky taking a picture of Chloe!

So far, we haven't seen much snow this year - this little guy will have to do! We had six inches (15cm) of fluffy white stuff on Saturday, which is almost completely gone today. Yesterday was 45F/7C and today will be 50F/10C. The china set in the cupboard is Homer Laughlin 'duBarry' pattern.

When I was at the thrift store a few weeks ago, I found this canister on the floor in one of the back rooms filled with utensils. I asked if it was for sale, and they said yes! The tin money box was an eBay UK purchase a year or so ago - love the graphics!

The china pattern is REALLY called duBarry?
My husband's name is Barry! That is so fun...gives a whole new, subtle meaning to the "honey do" list! :)

Your tins are gorgeous, and the kitty looks like it LIKES the house!
My Redhead would like to build a house for her kitty, I am sure. Great idea!
Happy Rednesday!

young girls like pink and purple. as they grow older, they like black. This is what I see at the cloak bay of my school. Sometimes, they wear identical.

Oh, it is hannah Montana!!!!

The cat house is a neat idea! I wish my dog would stay in something like that. She follows every step I make!She is outside since we have 62 to 64 degrees today. We haven't had much snow, either. Just a few dustings. Slight dustings, that is. Odd.

I like both the tins you shared. Cute Cute Cute!!

My picture is missing on my link. That happened before. Am I doing something wrong?

Happy Rednesday!

Your kitty's house is so cute and so is it's resident - or should I say Reds-ident?

Debbie Moore at Slice of Pie Entertaining and Cookbooks said...

Thanks for hosting ... I'll be back again because I have so much red!

LV said...

You sound like my sister. She had kitties that she thought of as her children. Nothing she would not do for them. You are the best at finding so many neat reds.

Love the cat house! I may have to make one for my Oliver -- although I think I'd have to make the door wider...

Hi Sue,
Love your canister, what a cute find!
You are so clever, your cat house is adorable! Our doggie loves to lay under the kitchen table - bet she'd love a house of her own!
It's supposed to be nearly 80 today in Los Angeles - our weather is all over the place of late.

Happy Rednesday!
