Red Things

Hello friends, it's been a while since I participated in Rednesday, so I decided I would this week.

This is a picture that was hanging on a wall at "Cracker Barrel" in Birmingham. I just loved it. Isn't she pretty in her red coat?




Here's a "thrifty find" I found at a great price recently at TJMaxx. Gotta love the Maxx!


My new, red pitcher.



I found these darling plates recently at my fav flea market here in town. I got six plates for a steal! I have seen some of these plates on other blogs, and I love them.




I'm using one for a display on a kitchen shelf.












I found this cute, red pillow at the same flea market. It kinda looks pink in this picture, but it's red.







See? :)





And, finally...........I'm so excited because I found some RED toile material that is actually RED, and not burgandy. I plan to make curtains for my sunroom out of this.

Thanks for stopping by to visit. I loved having you.

Thanks, girls, for hosting these fun parties for us to enjoy.

Your pitcher is so cute! And the shelf display is wonderful! Seems everyone around here (blogland) likes roosters - they're so cheerful!

Your pillows are beautiful on the white chair. I hope I'll be able to have a white chair in the future when the girls get older.
