It is REDnesday at 521 Lake Street !


I am so excited to be a part of Rednesday with Sue from It's A Very Cherry World... (see my sidebar). I am going to post a few photos of my Christmas decorations that have red in them!





Looks a wee bit crooked, doesn't it? It is the photographer, not the rack! LOL





This is one of my favorite things in my kitchen, it holds my Fiesta ware normally, but I loaded it up with vintage Christmas goodies this year, and a few fun Etsy items I have bought. The little felt cupcakes are so sweet! And the planter is fairly new, it is also from one of my favorite people Mary E! I love to "plant" suckers and cookies in it. No watering needed, and you can ask Jo my sister in law...that is a good thing! LOL


My very fun Santa tea kettle.



This is my regular cookie jar, and she isn't Christmas but I just had to take her picture too! Isn't she sweet? A Cracker Barrel find from a few Christmases ago...

This is over our TV....I have had Mr. and Mrs. Santa now for about 15 years....they are just about to be retired.....so my kids can have them. I got the wonderful "Believe" banner on Etsy this year. I have had the red hurricane lamp for years also.
So head on over to http://suelovescherries.blogspot.com/ she has all kinds of great people signed up for Rednesday! Thanks for coming by.....

Oh Sandy, I got so excited, first by your pretty plate rack, and then by the old boxes on it! What is that Sparkle Christmas Snow box? That ornament hanger box is so cute, and so is the Diamond Ray box. All of those old boxes really catch my eye lately! Love your apple-pickin' lady cookie jar too. Love it all!
Happy REDnesday!

I love what I see here! I have that Mary E. planter too. I put a mini Christmas tree in it in our room. I love your vintage items too and the banner. Who did you get it from? Your plate rack looks gorgeous too. I'd love to see MORE!

How can I not love your ME planter? A+ on your shelf decorating! Your tea kettle is so fun - I've never seen one like that before! Now, you know, that cookie jar is really Mrs. Claus doing her year-round apple-pickin'-for-pies!

My pictures are always crooked like that. I can't figure it out. I go into my photo program and straighten them every time. I do have one hip higher than the other but good grief not by that much.

Hey Sweet SIL - I know how much you love RED!!! Great photos.

I think I have that teakettle, but I don't have mine out yet.

Hugs,

Jo

Cass @ That Old House said...

I love your REDS! Especially that Santa tea kettle; I have a Santa tea pot, but it's not as cute.

My mother grew up on Lake Street in Brooklyn, NY -- so your blog name caught my eye. Thanks for visiting That Old House -- I'd love to meet your SIL and her Cavalier; we've had Cavaliers since 1994, used to "show" them but now just love them. Merry Christmas! Cass

I love all of your red decorations. That little tea kettle is so sweet. I've never seen one like it. I like the banner on your entertainment center. I've been trying to think of what I could put on mine to tie things together. That is a perfect idea.
Blessings,
Marcia

If you give your Santas to your kids, what will you do next year???? Get some new ones, right? Your Fiesta is beautiful--I just found some cups and saucers at the junk store--they're the newer pastels but soooo pretty. Happy belated Rednesday!

Miss Sandy said...

Hi Sandy,

What a bright and cheerful blog you have and I love your holiday decor. The little red santa on green skis on top of your plate rack, I have on too! I have had since childhood, it was given to me as a gift and came filled with candy canes. My Santa has a skiing accident and the front of his skis are broken off but I still use him every year. Fun post!
