Hi Everyone. I scanned my room for something RED today and here is what I came up with. This little shadow box holds lots of "littles". I know it seems like I'm someone who would collect figurines...but I really try not to be. Haaa! Last summer is when I accumulated all of these little guys, and it happend because I had a crush on Frozen Charlotte Dolls for quite a few months! I still love them, but really felt the need to compartmentalize, and not get a cluttery look going on.
This shadow box was at the thrift store for like $3 bucks. I should probably paint it a cute color. Oh well, I'll add that to the list! The red bird whistle reminded me of a time when we stopped at a flea market on the way to the cabin when I was a little. My sister and I each got one of these whistles and I think we spent that whole week up north making them chirp!
The antique bunny candy container was an Ebay splurge a couple years ago. I keep him out year-round instead of just bringing him out at Eastertime.
My mom was the world's best Easter Basket maker and Christmas Stocking Stuffer. My sister and I would always look forward to our stockings even more than what was going to be under the tree. Anyway, the pink rocking chair with the bunny is an 80's Hallmark ornament. I can't tell you how much that little pink rocking chair got played with when my sister and I would play what we called "miniatures". Sometime when I got older, it got LOST! So imagine how excited I was when this little bunny on her rocking chair was at the flea market!
Last summer this pair of 1950's lithographed bird prints were at the little thrift shop in town.
They're big! And I've put one on each side of the window in my bedroom.
Nicely framed, with glass.....$7 EACH! I raced home to see who the artist was, and if they had any value. I knew I was keeping them so I don't know why I cared about their worth, but it's just fun to know I guess. And yes, they did have some value!
"Scarlet Tanagers & Wild Cherry" cr 1950, by James Gordon Irving
"Bluebirds & Dogwood"
I love that these aren't just plain botanicals and the birds are so pretty. Best of all I now have some real art for my bedroom!
I hope you are all having a great week. Ahhhhh! The Olympics are nearing the end! We have enjoyed them so much around here. It's become my evening ritual!
I'm linking up with Sue for REDNESDAY! See lot's of beautiful red treasures over there!
