Come On In, It's REDnesday!

Hello everyone~ It's Wednesday again, and that means it is also REDnesday over at 'My Secret Garden.' Red is such a cheerful colour and more and more I see it making its way into people's homes. When I first got married, I had our home full of red but then as the children started coming along I sort of switched over to blue. Now that the boys are grown and on their own, I'm getting back into red again. I'm particularly fond of red toile, so I'll show some of that today.
I have it in the kitchen, dining room, living room, and den.
But first I'll start off with this little fella. He belongs to my hubby who is a huge Detroit Red Wings fan! The teddy sports number 19 for Steve Yzerman.
These are two of my red toile covered bird houses. Red cushions in the den. .......and my red toile bunny rabbit.That's it folks. Gotta save some for another day! Now how about dropping by Sue's 'My Secret Garden' to visit her and the other red participants today. Just click on this link http://suelovescherries.blogspot.com/ Have a cherry red day everyone!



"Bear" with me...but I'm blog hopping...even though i WAS supposed to be in the garden! Oh well...Happy Wednesday!

I love red toile! I made curtains for our bedroom with it, and now I would love to try doing a birdhouse like yours! Did you use spray adhesive or plain old Elmers glue?
Happy Rednesday!

I love red transferware and toile too. The fruit plates don't have any markings but the red transferware in my header says "EIT, English Ironstone, Made in England." It was a desert set I bought in a local English gift shop that closed years ago.

I use to be a beige and black girl. I was afraid of colors.... Funny after my divorce, I bought a red car, red phone and red IPOD! I guess I was surpressing who I really was and what I really wanted. PS-It wasn't a midlife crisis, I just started seeing the world in beatiful colors. I also discovered Purple, love it!

Have a happy day
