Rednesday aka Wednesday!


Well, it is that time again!  Rednesday, just in the nick of time to help us all get over that hump in our week by looking at the most beautiful color RED!!   Get the rest of your week going by heading on over to Sue's blog, It's A Very Cherry World, and taking a gander at all that great red.

Today I am featuring lots of red from my kitchen.  Some items are still here with me in AZ and others are now in their new home in GA.  Either way, I think they are pretty and they make me extremely happy!!

First couple of items up for your viewing pleasure tonight is a gift that I just received in the mail yesterday from
Sweet Bee Cottage.
Aren't they just great!!!  I am thrilled to have the reamer for my vintage kitchen collection and the little cherry notebook was such a sweet surprise.  I just love them both.  Thanks so much, Sweet Bee.  You certainly made my week a whole lot brighter!!  : )
These cannisters were my grandma's.  I love and cherish them.  There is a 4th one, the little baby that has to live inside one of her bigger sisters, not enough room on the counter!  Do you see the cherries in the decal?
This wonderful old jar belonged to my grandpa.  He and my grandma owned a small country store in Aiken, SC.  I think this came out of their store. Can you spot the towel with the cherry?
I purchased this painting with the frame for $11.00 from an artist in Korea. Of course you can see the cherries on top of the apple!
I purchased these vintage tea towels from a thrift store here in town for $6.40.

I will be keeping these and the rest selling at my shop.  You didn't think I could give up that cherry tea towel did you??

I better pace myself.  I could keep right on posting pictures, as I have taken quite a bit.  But, I do want to give y'all some pretty eye candy for the next several Wednesdays and certainly don't want you to go into cherry overload. : )  So until next Wednesday....I hope it is a good week for all you lovers of RED!

I just love every bit of it! That's the cutest reamer I've ever seen, and those canisters are easily the prettiest ever! That jar is a wonderful keepsake of your grandparents' country store. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of your reds every week!
Happy REDnesday!

Cute, cute, cute, cute, cute! I am very inspired by the towels in the jar. Eye candy and useful! Those canisters are so sweet. What are they made of? And thank you for the little shout out. I can tell these will be just perfect in your home.

Lots of fun reds, Ann. I especially love the canister set that belonged to your Grandma. Storing your towels in your Grandpa's old glass jar is a great idea. That juicer/reamer is darling, too. I also like the painting you picked up in Korea. Happy Reds!

There's no such thing as cherry overload! Maybe that will be my "mantra"! I have to admit, though, those apples in that painting are making my mouth water! I'm so glad you got that reamer - they're so bright and cheerful!

I would never get overload looking at your pics. I just wouldn't get anything done around the home,lol.

Oh my goodness I loved everything.What beautiful items from Sweet Bee..How precious are those canisters from your grandmother. My goodness they are just divine. I loved the jar from your grandfathers too and what you did with it. Loving that idea. That apple print would be perfect in my apple kitchen.

Thanks for sharing all these wonderful goodies.

The cannisters and the reemer are so beautiful. And what a clever idea with the tea towels in the glass jar. I have a jar that I've been wondering what to do with!

craftyles said...

I love your collection. The napkins in the jar is really great! I have a new jar similar to that, you've given me a good idea. Thanks!

Sandy said...

Very pretty - I have my crocheted dishcloths in my glass jar on my counter. We think alike!

I love everything! Everyone knows I'm a sucker for vintage linens....you got some super-cute tea towels for a great price! I like how you've stored them cleverly in that great jar!
That multi-colored reamer/juicer is fabulous! I don't think I've ever seen one like that, with all the stripes and colors!

Diann said...

Everything is so beautiful. I dont know where to start. Those blue canisters with fruits are simply priceless. I really love the tea towels folded in a big glass jar. I think that's a great idea. I will on the lookout for a great big glass jar! I have to admit I also love cherries. My first blog was all decorated in cherries. Thanks for sharing!

Sweet Bee is a real gem isn't she. Her name says it all!

You really have some great collections there. I love the idea of the towels in the jar. The colors are so bright and cheery and really go well with the canisters. It's wonderful to have pieces with family history.
Hugs,
