Seeing Red in June

Hey everyone (is there an everyone who reads this or an anyone??), yes I am still here. I don't know about ya'll but the last two weeks of May/first week of June are like December for me. There are field days, and track meets, awards assemblies, soccer games and make-up soccer games, preschool graduation, high school graduation and parties. Don't get me wrong--I have enjoyed all of these events (except the soccer in 40 degrees weather), but whew, I have hardly been home at all. And when I have, it has not been about junking. I got a few projects in the works that I will attempt to finish this week, if it ever stops raining!

Sara over at Sadie Olive is having a red party and I thought I'd join. If you look at any of my past posts--it isn't hard to see I love red. Here are a few random pictures:

I got these red theater seats at a garage sale last Saturday. I need to clean them up and then they are going to my booth.

Here is a cheap ol' picture from Ross. I love it though, except I think I want to paint the frame black. What do you think?

Here is a little shelf that sits in my kitchen. It was one of those shaky white ones--I spray painted it red. Nothing too exciting--it holds my napkins and my scentsy burner.

A stack of red Christmas dishes that i leave out all year long!

A (DIRTY!) red chair that sits on my front porch--this is from my MIL. Those are Japanese lilac bushes in the pot.

And this dirty old red stool. It was at my grandma's by her fire pit. We would sit on them we had weenie roasts. My grandma loved a good weenie roast!
A few petunias in old enamel pots.

And finally a few bottles of inexpensive red wine that I like. The Smoking Loon you can get at Costco for less than $10.

Look for the red in your life and let it energize and inspire you!


  1. Love the red! I was going to participate in Sadie's "Seeing Red" event but just haven't had the time.
