Hello friends~
Well REDnesday is here once again and I'm joining Sue at It's A Very Cherry World for her fun event.

I have a couple of reds for you.

This little girl with her real knitted red hat was a gift from my son and DIL one year. I love her little pinafore and red-striped socks. She has the cutest expression on her face! They claim she has her arms up in the air because it is my DIL thanking God for her wonderful MIL! Isn't that precious? I have the best family!

The other day I received this painting in the mail. It is a Giveaway which I won from Heidi at Fairy Footprints in the Sand
I love red barns so I was happy to win Heidi's painting. Many of you know that Heidi is Amy's cousin, the young lady who lost her battle with cancer over the weekend. Heidi and her whole family would appreciate your prayers during this sad time.

Please join Sue and her red participants by clicking the link or the REDnesday button on my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by today and have a lovely day everyone.
Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

  5. What a cute figurine. The real tiny knitted hat is amazing to me.

    I would have bet my bottom dollar that you're a great MIL! Knew it!

    Heidi has a talent in painting. I know Amy was an artist, too. The whole family is very sweet, kind, and talented throughout. What a sad time for them, and for all who, like myself, came to love Amy.

  6. How nice to win such a nice painting. Congratulations to you!

  7. The doll is sweet as can be with those arms outstretched.

    Congratulations on the red barn painting.

  8. The little girl is darling! And such a sweet sentiment behind her. Heidi does such great work.

  9. Hi Sandi...

  10. Precious in look and in thought!

    Thank you for the update on Heidi's cousin. I'll go to her blog right now.

  11. Your little figurine is sooo cute. I think she's asking to be picked up!

    Thanks for putting Heidi's link up. I had kept seeing her name but but didn't see the name of her blog or any links. I'm sure it's on Debbie's or Sherry's blog but I couldn't find it.

  12. Hi Sandi,
    Cute doll! Congratulations on your win- I love red barns too.
    Isn't it nice to have this sunshine?
    Take care,

  13. Sandi, the doll is just adorable...what a wonderful gift from your son and dil. So cute what you said about her lifting her arms in thanksgiving for you! No doubt, it's true!

    Congratulations on winning the beautiful painting by Heidi...she is precious. I am continuing to pray for Debbie, Sherry and Heidi. My heart aches for all of them.

    God bless,


  14. Sandi, she is adorable. I love her uplifted arms. It seems so symbolic of all the world has to offer us.

  15. The figurine brings a smile to everyone, doesn't she? sweet!!!

  16. Hi Sandi,
    love that cute figurine. It's such a darling little girl.
    I've been thinking of joining the REDnesday weekly appointments but when I look around my apartment I see that unfortunately red is not actually there and woudn't have any source of inspiration at hand. Isn't it funny how it can be with colors?

  17. Love your reds. Sorry I'm late, our power went out for awhile! Now I'm catching up :)
    Glad you have Dutchie kids in your family, I'm sure they're adorable!
