It’s Rednesday!


It is Rednesday at Sue’s place http://suelovescherries.blogspot.com/.

Today I am using photos from the the web, but I do have these first two items!

I love these little pitchers! I actually have a full size color ad for these! They came in Kix Cereal Boxes back in the 40’s….I am missing the elusive green one….

Hot Kitchen 2 145

The “red” one is actually a red orange, but I just love them!

I got this fantastic piece at Hope Gospel Mission Store in Eau Claire a few years ago….mine is just as perfect as this one!

!B07vGEw!2k~$(KGrHqQOKiQEw13iIBCdBMc,hos6C!~~_3 Just love the graphics!

I keep photos of things I see that I would love to possibly own someday and this was one of them! Isn’t this just perfect????? I wish I had a place to put one! :)

DSC_0161 copy Isn’t it amazing what a little paint and glaze can do??????

And this was on EBay……I found a set that showed the “before” shot…


After, again some paint and a few new decals…..


This sold for $20.00 !!!! My friend Cheri and I had a business on Ebay years ago and sold many refurbished red and white items….there was a real market 10 years ago…..

Thanks for stopping by and please go see all of the other wonderful posts of fun red items at It’s a Very Cherry World!

OMGosh, I love all your red things, especially those pitchers. I'll have to look for those when I go antiquing. 10 years ago...who woulda thought things would be like they are today. Like they say, Hind sight is 20/20! LOL

Sandy, I put it in for you. It was showing a double http://, so I took one out and put in the www.

Cute, cute & more cute!! I especially like the little spice jars :)

I thought that was a food chopper until I took a closer look. I have never seen a whipper like that.

LV said...

You do a great job on the before and after. I love all the reds you shared today.

Nan said...

I would never have thought of changing those little jars like that how clever and I love the make over. Hope the little puppy is doing okay with his leg.

Cherry Chick said...

Cute stuff Sandy...I especially love the red buffet. I need to look at furniture pieces like that with a creative eye instead of what I just see. Thanks for sharing with us on Rednesday.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I really liked the "before and after" spice jar photos..someone did a wonderful job refurbishing them. I think red and white is always in style.

Your blog has such a cute Halloween look!

Happy Rednesday!

Wow Sandy, what a great redo on those bottles and carrousel. That buffet is beautiful.

Becky Garrison said...

Love all the red goodies, especially that sideboard! My kitchen table and chairs are about that same color. They are an old (probably post WWII) dining set that I bought for $120 - already refinished. There is a table, extra leaf, and 4 chairs, and the chairs have the pressed wood design on the back. I just love the brightness in my farmhouse kitchen!

Sandy, Cute cute stuff. I love the little pitchers-I have an orange one but didn't know they came in cereal boxes. Also love the spice rack redo-unbelievable what a little paint can do. Great job!

★Carol★ said...

I've seen those little pitchers at antique stores, and they're always so expensive. I had no idea they originally came in cereal boxes. Now THAT was a great prize at the bottom of the box!
I would love to have that red buffet too!
Happy REDnesday!

In a ceral box? Wowza! Wish they still put goodies in laundry soap... wouldn't that be fun?
I've got some reds up today, too! ♥

Sally Annie Magundy said...

Such fun reds Sandy! I am so intrigued by the "Speed & Whipped" thingie. Is that supposed to make whipped cream or??? I love it, whatever it is. ;)

Happy Rednesday,

Sherrie said...

Any of your goodies would look right at home in my kitchen. Thank you for sharing. Yes I am now drooling over your treasures.

Loved everything but gotta have that buffet. Oh my it's gorgeous. Now you have my mind going about collecting some pictures for a wish list. Great idea. I used to do that when I first got married.

Happy REDnesday!

Scrap for Joy said...

You always have great red finds! The spice jar set is so cute and I swooned over that sideboard, too! Think it would fit in Santa's sack?
Hope Abbey is healing.

Brenda Pruitt said...

With me there's always a market for red and white! I adore that sideboard, or whatever it is. That would make a great kitchen island. And the pitchers are adorable.

ThreeOldKeys said...

Those pitchers are so sweet!! I remember getting little dishes in oatmeal ...

Thanks for showing all your treasure.

Unknown said...

Hey Sandy. I just wanted to pop in and visit. I'm glad I did. I love how your block is all tricked out for Halloween. It's so fun. Wow didn't that spice set turned out fantastic! Just as cute as can be. I so wish they still put giveaways in cereal boxes and soap boxes. Who would've ever thought that those cute pictures were freebies back then.

Have a blessed day friend....Tracy :)

Those little pitchers that came in Kix cereal boxes are so cute. I think Kix should do that again. I never buy Kix, but I would buy several boxes if cute little pitchers could be found inside once again!

All of these photos just make me smile!! Is there any other color combo that just says, "happy", like red and white? I don't think so! : )

Diane Mars said...

Oh yes the buffet up-cycled is just charming my parents had one very similar growing up they painted it not so bright but they did give it some color! Hugs, Diane

Sandy, I found that Halloween Countdown here:
You will have to change the size though, because it's too big for the sidebar. If you don't know how to do that, let me know and I can help you!

★Carol★ said...

Sandy, I just looked at the code on my countdown, and I changed it to this: Width 220, Height 200
That size should work for you too.

Sandy, it's fascinating to know about your shop! You come up with the best ideas for vintage items. I would have passed right by the original photo of the little jars. Thank you for sharing your wonderful eye for design with us. Elizabeth

very merry vintage style said...

wow, never thought of spray painting jar caps, they look really cute. The red side board is really nice, too

Cristine's Story said...

Sandy, thanks for stopping by my blog and showing the love for my red cabinets! I love red too. And I love all of your red thing!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Hi Sandy! That hand whipper thingy really brought me back to my kiddie-hood ... my Mom had one!
And they really do work.

Love your red choices this week -- neat sideboard, and that makeover of the little spice jars is so clever; I never would have thought of that.

Thanks for stopping by That Old House ... the kitchen makeover continues!

LOVE all the goodies! Of course I mix red and pink!! :-)
