Red in the month of July!

Red is not a color that is in my life much, however, in the month of July I purchased several items which as you can see are RED.

The "tomato-ware" was found at a wonderful antiques store in Bryan, Texas. I bought three of the cups outside of Austin, Texas in an antiques mall. What fun it was to shop in these  
wonderful places! Perhaps it was also who I was shopping with... my brother and sister-in-law and then my aunt.

Then Saturday morning I left for Weslaco, Texas to
Mimi's Attic where I enjoyed a little shopping excursion
where some wonderful "antiquers" from the Rio Grande Valley were going out of business. Everything in their booth was 50% off.

I bought several items, but I was thrilled to find the Santa
and the Christmas tree lights... that work! These are not for
me as I plan to put together a display of Putz Village pieces
along with the Santa and the lights... sort of a vintage Christmas look. If someone buys it... fine! If not.. that is fine too. I just want to play with it. Sort of like children and toy trains.

Later in my shopping morning, I called my husband to come join me for a little browsing about. He came! He found the Hudson Bay Blanket coat... for 20 bucks. Geezz!! Well, who wants a heavy wool jacket like that in the Rio Grande Valley??  Not sure what I will do with it, but it was fun to see my husband "antiquing"!

So, here I am all inspired after a month's absence .. partly due to a very busy schedule and partly due to being sick.
It took Rednesday and my recent purchases to get me inspired. "It's a Very Cherry World" is fun and a delight to read... so make a visit to

My belief is that every room in my house needs a little splash of red! Your finds are wonderful!

I am so happy you're back and I didn't even know you were GONE! Found you through Rednesday and glad I did. Maybe the red came into your life to lift you up, it does that. The Tomato ware is spectacular.

I just love your tomato-ware! And don't worry about the coat - you can send it up to me, here in New England, lol!

Wow, I love every single one of your red finds, but especially that coat! Very stylish, and it looks like it would be very warm too!
Happy REDnesday,

I love your reds!! Very pretty! I travel up to Austin several times a week and have been wanting to try out Bussey's (sp?) but it's been too hot! As soon as the temps drop I plan to visit. Have you been there? Is it good? It's always packed. Anyway, sorry to hear you weren't feeling well but happy to hear you're feeling better! I love your blog and plan to visit often!
Take care,
