This week our letter is "R" and I immediately thought of RED. I know...very original...DUH!
Anyway my first photo is of an apron I made in 7th or 8th grade. My mother kept it all these years and I now have it securely placed in a memory book for my grandchildren. The word on the pocket is "MOM" in case you can't make out my cross-stitching.
I made these watermelon pieces and the ant several years ago while I was still teaching. Our school secretary invited several teachers to her house so we could paint and show off our craftiness! The teachers called it "therapy".
I found this apple hanging outside of my classroom door one day during parent-teacher conferences! Our secretary and some of her friends made these apples for each teacher as a gift and I have it hanging in the same room as my watermelon pieces.
These vintage Little Red Riding Hood salt and pepper shakers belonged to my mother. I have a photo of me as a baby sitting in a high chair with these and the coordinating cookie jar atop our refrigerator. My mother could never find the cookie jar after we moved to Phoenix in the early 60's. I found a pristine cookie jar that matched these shakers at an estate sale but I wasn't going to pay $225 for it!
My mother also saved these cake toppers from when I was a teenager. The red record player is truly a gem.
I'm not old enough to really remember Shirley Temple or any of her movies, but I really liked this doll when I saw her at a doll show in Phoenix. She is a reproduction and is as cute as can be!
