More Touches of Red

                                                            Hello everyone,
                                I am enjoying little touches of red this year so I have been adding it here there and everywhere!
                          These vintage skates were white but I painted them a little coat of paint and filled them with some greenery and berries.The red scarf really adds that pop of color.
 Our pond is freezing over so I am really looking forward to some skating parties coming up soon.

                              I love this red plaid throw. I filled the grey pitcher with greenery and berries and added some burlap.
                         Still love my old coal skuttle from Time Worn Antiques- one of the best little shops in town. I just added the greeney and berries for the season but I am hoping to add some white birch to it also.
                            A friend and I went on a Christmas House Tour last Saturday and we loved this beautifully decorated house. I could only take pics outside though.
     Even the Canada goose got a red ribbon-not to whine but a little touch of snow would make it perfect!

                       Our bedroom had the red and white toile quilt for a short time before it went plaid.

            Red and white transferware is perfect in any season but especially at Christmas.

                   I am off for a day out with my daughters tomorrow and I am really looking forward to it.
I am joining The Garden In Malevik for Show-Off Saturday.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend,

Bless this house, o Lord, we pray.
Make it safe by night and day.
Bless these walls so firm and stout,
Keeping want and trouble out.
Bless the roof and chimney tall,
Let thy peace lie over all.
Bless the doors that they may prove
Ever open to joy and love.
Bless the windows shining bright,
Letting in God's heavenly light.
Bless the hearth a-blazing there,
With smoke ascending like a prayer.
Bless the people here within...
Keep them pure and free from sin.
Bless us all, that one day, we
May be fit, O lord, to dwell with Thee.

Blessings for your home.........The red accents are lovely indeed. Love you Jeanne

I really like your white curtains with the ball fringe on them. Where can I find some like that?

Janneke said...

Really lovely your decorations with touches of red. Vintage skates and a frozen should know I love skating, but no frost over here.

Elzie said...

It looks so beautiful, even without the snow. We still have some of it left and I hope it'll stay now until Christmas, after that it can disappear!! But it's raining so you'll never know!
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
Love Elzie

Hi Shirlgirl,
The Ball and fringe curtains that you asked about are one that I made.
The only place other then lucking in to a thrift find that I know that sells them is Country Curtains from the New England states.

Thank you everyone for your visit and kind words.
