REDNESDAY - KITCHEN REDS



Welcome to Rednesday! I'm showing a few kitchen reds today. This first photo is the wall above the stove. I took down these two red & white daffodil shelves,


and put up this scalloped shelf and tray. I think the red-capped salt & peppers look much better lined up this way. The whole arrangement is so nice to view from across the room.


I broke down and bought this adorable utensil tray at the antique store in town. It's been there for at least six months, and I was afraid if I waited any longer it would be gone.


I decided to redecorate the little shelf beside the fridge, too, with red, of course!


Last, and best, is this oh-so-pretty bunting that arrived in the mail this week. This special blog friend, whom I call my doppelganger (in the good sense), made it and sent it to me. I swear we were twins separated at birth, because we like, pretty much, all the identically same vintage stuff! She is Carol of Old Glory Cottage! I love it soooo much - and it matches my kitchen curtains nicely, too!

So many of your beautiful treasures we've sold in our shop. Love shakers. Mother had your red silverware box.

Have a beautiful week ~

I am completely smitten with your fabric bunting. A beautiful collection of kitchen reds.

AH HA! So they did make organizing trays back in the day! Now I just need to hunt some up for my kitchen (as the cutlery drawer is a MESS) Im loving the reds in your kitchen! This last weekend we saw a chess set made out of old salt and pepper shakers!

Your kitchen is such a cheery cherry place, Sue! Yes it's true, we do like the same things, and that's probably why we couldn't ever go thrifting/antiquing together!
Happy REDnesday,
Carol
p.s. The bunting looks terrific up there!

I too have a doppleganger thrift twin, and We CANNOT go shopping together because she runs in a head of me! LOL! Half my stuff used to be hers, though. Very pretty reds!

You know, if you had waited just one more day to buy that utensil tray, it would have vanished into someone else's collection!

It has been so long since I have played along. I did not write a post for this week but am seeing your button everywhere today that I had to come link up.

You are making me want to add some spring reds to my kitchen!

Wow, It just all looks way too cute! I like the line up, it looks good on the shelf. That vintage tray is really cute! You could use it like a shadow box, maybe? Thanks for showing your pretties!
