It's Rednesday

I've never done this before - but I love red things in my kitchen - so thought I'd show you a few of my vintage red things and a few things that are not vintage - but are red.

Check out everybody's red stuff at It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue is our hostess!




My cousin gave me this cute spice rack - she has one just like it. We both like red in our
kitchens. We like a lot of things the same, though we didn't grow up near each other.



I found this little soap dish at a thrift/antique store and just couldn't leave it there.




It even has the little removable strainer insdie to keep the bar of soap dry.



A redword quilt I made for our first grandson. My friend Lois designed and drew

the teddy bears, one for each month and I made the quilt.


A snazzy red shopping tote that our daughter crocheted for me.
It really holds a lot of groceries.



I crocheted this darling little pincushion hat from a vintage pattern,
but used new materials.



An angel made from a vintage handkerchief - you can find the pincushion and the angel
over at my Artfire Shop - stop in and browse a bit.

Fabulous reds from you! That quilt is absolutely gorgeous, and sure to be a family heirloom in the future! Love the spice rack too, and that soap dish. And I think I need a shopping bag like that. Maybe I'll see it and actually remember to bring it into a store, unlike the ugly beige bags that I have sitting forgotten in my car!
Happy Rednesday!

It's 'red'ily apparent what your favorite color is. Thanks for sharing.

Great collection! What a unique soap dish - I've never seen one like that before, especially with a cover. Your pincushion is so darling - good job on that and the totally awesome quilt!

Oh oh, I love red, and not just in my kitchen! I walk through stores and am drawn to the red clothes, the red cookware, the red flowers. Love the spice rack and soap dish.

Great RED Post! LOVE the spice rack and jars ... very sweet.
And I have a very similar soap dish -- covered also -- but it's in ironstone, printed with soft old pink roses and vines, with a little bit of gilt trim. So different from yours -- I think we have "Kitchen" and "lady's bath" soap dishes between us!

Well how fun is this?! Grocery bag is really snazzy, I agree. That quilt is much much to beautiful for any words I can drum up. Lovely my friend, absolutely lovely. And finally, my most fun find - the soap dish with the strainer inside. Now that is delightful!

Wow! you have some great reds! The soap dish is just too cute! That shopping bag is a GREAT idea.

The quilt is just fabulous. There is a lot of talent behind this post!

Have great day.
