Seein Red. . .

Hello my friends, this time of year we see a lot of red.  It’s a very traditional color associated with Christmas.




Red is a happy color and I love it!  Nothing gets me more excited than to walk into a thrift store and start seein red!




red finds


Imagine my delight when I found all of these kitchen reds last week.

A time worn rolling pin, a divided Pyrex (missing the lid, but made a cute Christmas candy dish), and three cherry plates.

Not to mention that I have a bowl and small creamer with the same design.

The plates looked right at home in my farmhouse style basement kitchen.

And did you notice the red dish drainer?  An earlier thrift find.

Dear Jann ... I too love it when I walk into an antique shop and there is a little cubby with a vintage cupboard and all sorts of vintage red treasures. I love your red gingham juice glasses. I keep looking for glassware with the red gingham check. I did find a 3 piece red gingham canister set for a very little price and in perfect condition on one of our little getaways. They add such charm to my kitchen. Sweetest Blessings ♥ Teri
