Happy Rednesday everyone! I'll tell ya, even if I don't leave comments, I'm having a great time visiting your blogs and enjoying all the Christmas crafts and decorations! I wish I had the spare time to do all the crafts I see - I must have "a million" ideas filed away! Jeepers, I haven't even finished my December Tag-along!

I'll show you a few more of my decorations but, first, have you ever seen a warning label like this - "do not throw"? It came on a package from Japan. Cracked me up!

I have no idea what brought this to memory, but the other day I was remembering these little coin purses ~

A bowl full of red "HRM" cookie cutters with a few tin ones. Santa and Packages S&P just like Carol's (Old Glory Cottage)! Norcrest ashtray and Villeroy & Boch "Naif Christmas" sandwich tray and round box.

On the other side of Santa is a cute pitcher with a red and green design - and a peek-a-boo pixie!

I really like the pitcher, my grandmother had one just like this one. Looks like we both like vintage cookie cutter. Great reds.

As I was cleaning out some drawers today I came across a stash of red plastic cookie cutters. Thanks for giving me the incentive for next weeks post.

It really brings me back to my schooldays. Those rubber coin purses were a rage! I haven't seen one in years.

Happy Rednesday! Thanks for hosting, Sue!

Hahahaha... love the change purse. and the "do not throw" makes sense to me. when we moved from our 3rd floor walkup NYC apartment 23 years ago, the moving men began tossing boxes out the windows!

That pitcher? Adorable.

thanks again for hosting!

Hi Sue,

Thank you so much for letting me show and tell some of my vintage red stuff this morning.

I always enjoy seeing what you have. I have a similar pitcher to yours, but it has strawberries on it. I keep seeing your pretties and remember my own!

Have a wonderful week,

Your blog always triggers some pleasant memory from my past! I think my mother or granny may have had a pitcher like that. Thanks for hosting.
