In our first week of summer school, Mrs. Matlock assigned the color red for our class to write about. Since I chose red for my letter "R" in Alphabe-Thursday, my red selection is now rather limited.
My first red photo is of a red rose taken on December 21, 2008 in Chandler, AZ, which is just outside of Phoenix. While a lot of the U.S. was covered in snow, we were basking in pleasant sunlight with flowers blooming all over the place! My mom's Little Red Riding Hood shakers from the 40's or 50's. I have these safely stored in a kitchen cabinet out of harm's way.
This lamp shade sits in my great room. It really goes along with my decor and I found it at either Ross or TJ Maxx.
This darling hankie is part of a collection that my mom saved over the years.
The Elmo chair was a gift to my grandson but the cat decided to take ownership when Brandt wasn't sitting on it.
This darling lass is a card from 1991 The Gifted Line, John Grossman, Inc. She is so cute and her red cape is so pretty.
This booklet was printed in 1950 for The John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance Company, Boston, MA. The children are so cute and depict life in the 50's.
For Christmas I usually have my sideboard set up with all kinds of dolls. You can see two Apple Cheeks dolls dressed in festive red for the holidays.
So many things are red and can be seen by visiting Mrs. Matlock here. This is linked back to Alphabe-Thursday for the color red.
