Rednesday Blog Party

Hello everyone ~ Today I am taking part in Sue's REDNESDAY. I have a little red around my home so I thought it would be fun to participate in her fun event. You can join the fun too by clicking on the link and going to Sue's blog "My Secret Garden" http://suelovescherries.blogspot.com/
This punch bowl set was a Christmas gift from my brother when I was first married. I had started collecting different pieces of this ruby glass and he added to it with his special gift. I was thrilled to receive it, you can be sure!

This lovely red-rimmed punch bowl comes with twelve red-rimmed cups and a ladle. It has entertained at showers, weddings, and lots of different events over the years. It is always a joy to fill it with a special punch and serve my guests.
As far as I know they don't make this glass any more so I'm so very glad to have the pieces I have. I'll share other pieces another day.
That's my offering for today. Please go on over and visit Sue and all her other participants, and have a happy day everyone!

It's beautiful! And I love that the b owl itself has a scalloped edge :-)Makes it even more beautiful cause I'm reminded of roses. But for you I know that it's also very special cause it's from your brother.
