Flaunt Your Red!


Stacey at Poofing the Pillows is hosting this months Flaunt Your Red party! I love red! It's really my favorite color so I'm always happy to participate.




I've been on the look out for more of these little Avon demitasse cups. They're so perfect for displaying some little hydrangea heads from my garden. I love that the pattern looks like toile. You know I love toile, particularly red toile!



These are candlesticks I got at the thriftstore and I painted them my favorite color...red!



This is a toile pillow cover I found in my closet! I totally forgot I had two of these. They were mixed in with some vintage tablecloths and I found them while organizing those. I don't think I've ever even used them before! Good things happen when you clean~smile!

Thanks for stopping by to see me Flaunt My Red and be sure to come back Monday to have a look at my screened porch. I'm having lots of fun getting it ready for the summer! Have a great weekend everyone!

What a cute pillow. I really like pillows with buttons! I have a few with buttons on the back, but not on the side--love it!

Lady Katherine said...

Now how fun was that! Finding the toile pillow case was like finding $100.00 in your washed pants pocket. Or Less money. Its always exciting to find things we love and have forgotten about! Love the welcome home sign with the red candle holders.

I love all your red toile. BTW, you have been tagged. If you would care to play, open the sixth folder of my photos and choose the sixth photo, post it on my blog and tell something about it. Then select 6 other bloggers to tag.

I chose you because you had a picture of your little fur baby. Check out my blog to see the photo of our Caesar.
