Rednesday at 521 Lake Street


I haven’t done this in a long time and I am not sure why….but because of that I have a few new red things to show you!

This is a recipe box I have wanted for years!!!!  Finally found one that wasn’t 40.00!

Literally brand new!

Red Santa's …..


Again, really reasonable….


A beautiful tablecloth!!!!!


Forgive me if I have shown this before, but I just love it!  Perfect with my Fiestaware!

I also got these a few months ago with the thought of redoing them, I am not….if anyone would like them, I will be happy to sell them to you. Just email me at  But please know that it will be awhile until I can ship them as I am going home!


That’s right, it is autumn, and I am headed to a beautiful place….Arizona is so lousy this time of year.  It is October and it is still hitting 100 degrees or close to it!  Family, and fall!  Can’t wait!  I don’t know if I will post while I am in Wisconsin….depends on if I can figure out how to do it from my cousin’s computer as I don’t use blogger to post,  I use Windows live writer…..Have a great two weeks!!!!!  See you soon…:)  Stop over at Sue’s to see all of the other wonderful red!

Those are some of the cutest REDS ever! I'm glad you found your recipe's really a great one! I hope you have a great time visiting your family. And you're going to make it over to MN too right? The leaves are in there "peak" right now, so I hope you'll enjoy that!

The recipe box is to die for!! I'm also curious about where to get decals to re=do the vintage spice jars. I have my Grandma's and the old decals are peeling off. I'd like to renovate them but haven't seen those decals before.


Hi Sandy!
Sweet recipe box! Guess you are on your way! Looking forward to next Wednesday! OH, the FUN we will have!
See you soon.

Oh- that recipe box is the cutest I've ever seen! Also love the spice jars. I hope you have a wonderful trip in Wisconsin. We lived in Az. for awhile and they don't get much of a fall season. Enjoy all the trees and leaves on your trip!

I HAVE IT TOOO! I have that recipe box too. One of my favorites! Somehow I have ended up collecting recipe boxes. Not sure how. That will have to be a future post! Thanks for the idea!!

Lori said...

Love the recipe box and tablecloth! I live in Ohio, so I can understand the urge to go where the leaves are (and family). Enjoy!

Dorothy Prudie Vintage said...

I have wanted that exact recipe box too. I will find it one day. Have fun on your trip home. Who says we can't go home again? Take care.

Hi Sandy,
I am such a lover of the color Red! My favorite posts always have some red in them.
What sweet treasures!
I'm so glad you are going to head north. Arizona is such a hot spot...My dad lived there and had to move because of the heat.
Enjoy your trip home.
Blessings and safe trip.

Hi Sandy -- LOVE all the reds, but I am especially loving the tablecloth. That's the style I remember from when I was a kid. A really SMALL kid, hahaha!
The recipe box is a great find, too.
