I Adore Red....red plates, platters, saucers...




Thanksgiving has come and gone. It is time to drag all of our Christmas decor out of all of my hidey holes.

 Our granddaughters reached up in the top of the guest room closet and pulled the boxes down for me. It is always more fun doing things when they are helping me.
   I started pulling out the red dishes last week and sorting them. I will be posting pictures of the vignettes that I come up with later this week. Playing with different ideas of how to place them is relaxing for me.

 I am so glad my Sweetheart enjoys my 'playing'! Things get a little chaotic when things are strung from one end of the house to another.

Red is one of my all time favorite colors....I love RED!





The transferware pattern is Mason and is from England. The little bowl was made in USA by Homer Laughlin.

































Hope you enjoyed looking at them.

 Remember in all the rush of the season to take time to be still. My favorite scripture says "Be still and know I am God".
It is difficult this time of the year  to do that. Take time to enjoy the simple pleasures that are given to you each and every day.

Thank you to the wonderful Deborah at Common Ground for featuring me here and to the sweet like her name Honey at 2805 for featuring me here.

Even though I don't have much red in my home except for the holidays, I always love seeing it in other people's houses. Your transferware is beautiful, yet I bet it it totally stunning at Christmas. Can't wait to see how you decorate this year.

Love your red dishes, but what I love even more is the verse you cited, "Be still and know I am God." I'm going to commit myself to that verse during this busy season. Thanks for the inspiration. I'm now a follower.

I LOVE your red transferware. I happened to see some in Tues. Morning the other day and I think they had a set of six. I have been trying to avoid the temptation because I surely do not know where I would put them but after seeing your post I think I am caving. May have to make a stop in there this afternoon???? You have a beautiful blog and I enjoyed your post wayyyyyyyyy to much.
