Rednesday in the land of many reds!


Anyone who knows me, knows I love red, always have.  I remember shopping with my daughter, when she was a teen-ager, and I was buying a red sweater.  She said "but Mom, you already have a red sweater".  "I know, isn't that cool, now I have two"!  So, I wear a LOT of red and I seem to be drawn to the color in what ever form it takes.

So, here is my newest, latest and greatest red purchase!

red chairs 004 I'm lovin' these red powder-coated metal chairs!  Stumbled upon them at Pier One, on sale for half price.  The pads were already in my possession.  We have had such a wet and cold spring, we haven't spent much time here but I'm looking forward to that changing, soon, I hope.

Tell me this chair is not comfortable!  This fellow's name is Al, short for Orange Alley Cat, he was abandon on our doorstep.  He is a love.



I posted these knobs on Cherry Chicks Mary Engelbriet's Monday party but, since they are red, I'm showing them here, too.

red 004These are the Mary knobs, but I didn't have enough for all of the doors and drawers, so the doors on the bottom cupboard have these great chrome and bakelite handles.

Ours is a small kitchen and these guys brighten my world!

You can see more red on the towel and my Corelle everyday dishes.

Lastly, this cute little handled "tool" box that I found at a garage sale.  It sits on top of our refrigerator and we hide our prescription and vitamin bottles in it......cute and handy!

I found this cutie, looking just like this, in red, white and blue with the darling little decals.  Love it!

When I first posted on Sue's Rednesday, I wondered how long I would be able to post red items from my house...well, as it turns out, I think a very long time!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you go visit the other  bloggers at Sue's party.  Remember, I appreciate your comments and love my followers.

I'm loving those red chairs. I may have to take a trip to my local Pier 1 and hope that I find the same "deal" as you. Still loving those cherry knobs and I have that same Cherry towel in my kitchen. We'll never run out of Red!
Your cat, Al, looks exactly like my Rusty that "went on ahead" this past April. So sweet.

Love your reds. That little blue box with the decals is so stinkin' cute. Already love the ME knobs and bakelite knobs. Chairs are super cute too. Great reds!

Again...Love it all! That sweet vintage tool box thingie is so neat! :)

Loving the vintage cupboard handles. Bakelite is getting harder and harder to find. You did well there!

Unknown said...

Great REDS! I especially like your cupboard pulls. Chrome & red bakelike is so fun!

I love all of your reds today, Jan! The knobs are definitely cute, but I really love those handles. Talk about retro, those are just perfect! That little tote with the rose decals is just adorable, and those chairs are wonderful. The cushions go with them so perfectly. So does the kitty!
Happy REDnesday!

I was trying to think how many red sweaters I have and I lost count! That's a lot. :)
Love all your reds. But oh my gosh! I adore your bakelite cabinet handles!!! I've never seen any before, thank you so much for sharing them with us.
Happy Rednesday,

So nice of you to set out comfy chairs for Al.

I love dandelions too, so came over to say hi. Red is a zingy upbeat color and your red accents are perfect. We have adopted a stray cat or two, over the years, and they bring us a lot of love. Yours looks very comfy and cute.

So appreciate you stopping by my ME post! Just love the reds! Especially the blue trug with the flowers! Hope you have a great day!

God bless,

Really like the mixture of different cabinet knobs/handles, Jan--very creative and it works!! If you come to Expo, I'm in Hall E, C 6 & 7 (air conditioned!).

My best,
