New Red Things!

Hello, Bloggy friends. Today I want to show you some of my new "RED" stuff. :) First, here are my new red gingham chandelier shades.
I think they make my fixture so much "cozier". (Darn! Why didn't I turn that seam around)

Not a great pic, but I love the warm glow it gives off at night.


Next, my vintage geranium tablecloth found recently at a flea market.



I love geraniums! I will use it in a future tablescape at Susan's :)
Here's a sneak peek. My geranium glasses went great with it.
(Vintage found at antique store)




More vintage "stuff" I used on the tablescape.





Some of you asked me about these little pillows. I picked them up at Walmart last year.







I hung this sign in my sun room.



Next, my very favorite find (for this round). My vintage bird cage. Saw this and had to have it.



If you look close, you can see the bird. (Not real, AND he's ugly hehehehe)



Here's how it looks in my sunroom. The sunroom is finally beginning to come together. I have a rug picked out for it I will be getting soon.



And finally, my granddaughter did this little "vignette" of Barbie in her red dress all ready for a picnic. ;-)
Thanks for stopping by. I loved having you.
I'm linking up the two very fun "RED" parties.
Ruby Tuesday at Mary's "Work of the Poet", and
Rednesday at Sue's "It A Very Cherry World"

I love that birdcage! And all of the geranium goodies too. I have to say that if I lived in your house, I would never leave that sunroom! It's such a cheery place, but I think my most favorite thing is Barbie, ready for a picnic!
Happy REDnesday!

Hey, D! I agree about the cozy glow from the lampshades - I have a small one in the kitchen and I love turning it on at night during the winter months. Your chandelier really brightens up the room with its gingham!

The geranium tablecloth and glasses just have "Summer" written all over them. And that birdcage is to die for! I've been looking for one of those for years (that style) - hard to come by in my neck of the woods!

Joyce said...

I love it all so much that I want to book a stay at your pretty home:-)

Hi, I love all your red and especially your red and white gingham! My post is on "Strolling along Memory Lane..."REDNESDAY"! I couldn't believe my eyes when I found this wicker carriage with the "RED" and white gingham hood and "RED" wheels.

What a terrific match that geranium tablecloth and the glasses are! Looking forward to a 'scape with them! The birdcage is so fun and a wonderful addition to your terrific sun room! I'd love to have a room like that to sit and relax in!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my cabana and 'scapes. I emailed you regarding your questions.
