It's REDnesday!

'Morning everyone~ It's the middle of the week already and you know what that means! It's REDnesday once again. I have decided to join Sue at It's A Very Cherry World and her red participants again this week.

I have been walking you through The Homestead the last number of days and today I would like to finish up the tour by showing you some reds! Hope you enjoy!
I just had to show you this wonderful lantern and ceiling medallion. This place is so charming, it's hard to leave! And a gorgeous window.Lots of gift ideas. I love this wall of cliches, words, and the red shaded lamp on the table.A table of glassware and red-covered chairs. Red knick-knacks and birdhouses.

A black hen with her red comb and a teddy sitting nearby in a red jacket.
Lots of red here; candles, jams, linens, etc.
A wonderful old settee sporting a very sweet print and old-fashioned quilted cushions and mat.
There was much more but it would take too many pictures to show you everything. I think you get the idea! The Homestead is a very unique shoppe and if you're looking for that something special, this is the place to go on Prince Edward Island!

I did buy something but it wasn't red. It was white; a distressed white metal finial, very French!
I will show you what I did get over the summer though. I have been wanting one of these for some time and I finally found one; good price too!
A red transferware handled tray. It is large enough to handle my favourite red teapot and a creamer. Love it! Thanks for visiting me today and please take some time to go visit our cheery hostess Sue and all the other red participants at
Hope you are all having an exceptional day! God bless you!

no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived

  1. Love the transferware, and that black rooster! I also like those houses way up on that shelf too!
    Happy Rednesday!

  2. What a fabulous shop! If I ever make it up there, I'll have to stop in. Your transferware looks like it was made to be together!

  3. What an interesting place to spend some time dreaming. I love that transferware tray.

  4. Hi Sandi
    I'm not familiar with the word transferware, but now I know!
    The Homestead is fabulous. I can't pick one thing out of al the wonderful goodies, but I did like the entrance chandy.
    Happy Rednesday
    Love Claudie

  5. love the tray and tea set. I love the red barn and forgot to tell you last time I saw it that it reminds me of a barn at the farm that Scott's parents have in their basement. When the boys had their farm nursery I coveted it. It is too big to put in my tiny house anyways. I love those houses above the hutch too.

    snowman soup is pk of cocoa with 5-8 mini marshmallows, 3 hershey kisses and a candy cane to stir. there is a poem too. I'll post soon and make sure I give you a heads-up. Be's addictive to give. xox!

  6. Wow, that Homestead is quite a place. Charlotte would love to visit there and I would like to be with her. Have a great day.
