REDnesday Blog Party

Good Morning everyone! I am joining Sue at "My Secret Garden" for another REDnesday Blog Party. If you love the colour red and you want to share some of what you've got, then please join us!

Today, I don't have anything real exciting to show you, until the end! This is what REDnesday is all about!
This is my red kettle which just adds a little pop of colour in my kitchen.If you recall, I showed you my red-rimmed punch bowl set a couple of weeks ago. Well, these salt and pepper shakers are just a couple more of the pieces I have.

And what could be more red or delectable than fresh strawberries just picked from the field? Hubby just brought these home and I am looking forward to having my first bowl full! Strawberries are a real treat here on the Island because our season only lasts about three weeks! Hubby is the strawberry picker in our home because he simply loves doing it. I hate it because the blackflies and mosquitoes like me too much!
Any guesses what is going in here?
Mmmm! We'll be eating lots of these in the next couple of weeks! Strawberry Shortcake and jam, here I come!! When it comes to shortcake, I prefer a sweet biscuit to cake. What do you prefer? I also love crushing the berries with a little sugar and pouring over a good vanilla ice cream. I LOVE strawberries!Please check out Sue's blog at and see what all the other lovers of red have to share today. Thanks for coming by and Happy REDnesday!


  1. You get pretty red things. I particularly love the plate with the strawberries. Have a nice week, my friend.

  2. Love the red table wear and salt and pepper shakers. Cute stuff! I guess we are luckier with about three months of strawberries and it helps that the strawberry capitol of the world is about a half hour a way! Glad you get to enjoy your strawberries too.

  3. Oh, those strawberries look so yummy! I'm a sucker for your red tableware too. :)

  4. Oh, pretty!

    I must admit I go for strawberries over CAKE...but like strawberry jam on the biscuits!

    What pretty red toile patterns on the plates and linens.

  5. Beautiful shakers! How I wish my strawberries were still growing - and that I had a servant to pick them, cut them up, and serve them to me! (I can dream, can't I?) I prefer the sweet biscuits, too - I always add a wee bit extra sugar in the batter!

  6. Good Lord, the reds are fantastic. Beautiful presentations.

  7. Very pretty reds! The strawberries look delish!

  8. I loved your choice of reds, especially the strawberries. They look so good and fresh. Nice post. I appreciate your stopping by my post.

  9. Your reds are so lovely, Sandi! Those S&P shakers are fabulous! The strawberries look so delicious. My next Thursday Tablescape post is about strawberries!

    Thanks for stopping by! I'll be sure to post whatever it is I end up doing!


  10. Oh red kitchen!! I love it!
    Hugs, Lisa

  11. The salt and pepper shakers I love! :-) I like the crystal-like in the bottom. makes the red even pop more.

    As to strawberries, I like them with a combo of all purpose cream and condensed milk. yum! I made a post way back for outdoor Wednesday. yummy!

  12. Hi Sandi,
    Those strawberries sure look good as well as all your other reds.
    About making collages-if you have picasa downloaded (free).It is easy because you just but the photos in a tray at the bottom and hit the collage button and then it gives you some choices for different styles.I know there are other ways but this is the only way I know.
    I hope you get to the beach-weather looks promising.
    Take care,

  13. strawberries in red bowl.. look so yumm especially with a dollop of cream! double yumm! but then again.. anything cook with strawberries always yumm! hehehehe Have a great weekend
