More Random Reds

I thought about these plates for a week and decided to go back to Home Goods and get them. Love them!
I love to sew and bought this at an antiques mall in Arkansas.
Story behind Raggedy Andy is-when I was 6 years old I already had had my Raggedy Anne doll for 2 years and she was my favorite. I slept with her every night. So of course I wanted Andy for Christmas. I saw the wrapped box under the tree and shook it and just knew that was it. Christmas morning I go to open that box and there were a pair of slippers! Oh my-disappointment. A few presents later there was the much awaited Andy Doll in a different size box. So there he is.
Little Tiddly Winks game in mushroom- what a cute game" box". Thanks you Sue at It's a Very Cherry World for hosting this party. Go check out everyone elses red and have a great Rednesday!


  1. Ooh, what wonderful reds you have today! I too saw those plates, and am making a trip back to the city next week. Your picture is so inspiring that I'll be making a stop at Home Goods! Keep your fingers crossed that they are still on the shelf.
    I posted a picture of a couple of red and white polka dot mushrooms as part of my Rednesday post, too. What a coincidence!

  2. Ohhhhh, I am in love with that sewing machine... love the plates too.

  3. I love that Red plate, too! I may have to check out Home Goods as well. Thanks for sharing ;-)

  4. Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures. I used to love Raggedy Ann so much. Every item is priceless. I'm a new follower


  5. Love the old red sewing machine - what a find! Cute mushroom. You say it holds a tiddlywinks game? How clever ;) Happy REDS~

  6. Hi Leslie!
    I love visiting with you. You have such charming things and such a great eye! I'm suffering from serious envy and I Wanna's over your sewing machine - how cute is that?!
    Is it a kitchen towel beneath the adorable polka dot plate? It's so darling.
    And Andy and his high chair and his dishes too, you're killing me here.
    I love that tiddly winks are inside of the toadstool, so much fun. (and I see you have vintage Oz books!)
    Thank you for all the smiles. Happy Rednesday!

  7. Wow! You have tons of great vintage treasures! I love it all. You're right, our kitchens are very similar. To be honest, I wish I hadn't gone with hardwood in there, it's a biatch to keep clean!

  8. I wish there was a Home Goods near me, because I love those plates! That's so neat that you still have your Raggedy Ann and Andy, and that sewing machine is so sweet. I had one like that when I was a little girl, and I just recently asked my Mom where it is, and sadly she doesn't know what happened to it. One more thing to look for on Ebay, as I buy back my childhood one thing at a time!
    Happy REDnesday!

  9. Hey Leslie! I too collect Raggedy Ann's but in Christmas ornaments!! My husband gave me my first
    Raggedy Ann doll when we were dating in college.
    I love all the reds today.Mmmmmm Home Goods trip when I come to visit you..none down here in San Antonio area.

    Pink Gingham story has been posted today!!

  10. I love Home Goods for they carry some fun red stuff...aren't you thrilled you went back??? The sewing machine is adorable and the Andy you still have Annie??? Tiddley winks in a mushroom box..too cool...Thanks for sharing,Mica/The Child's Paper

  11. I've never heard of Home Goods!! Must seek one out! That sewing machine is spectacular too-- but you know I really like those vintage Oz books.

    The book I thought was the Child's Garden of Verses is actually a Robert Louis Stevenson Reader-- I'm still going to blog about it and link back to your post. Thanks for visiting both of my blogs.



  12. What delightful reds. I especially loved the polka dot plate! :) I also enjoyed the next post about vintage books - and spotted one of my favorites. I do love Eloise Wilkin! :) :) :) And one more "love" - I loved your Raggedy Ann and Andy doll story. How sweet! :)

    Thank you again for popping over to visit. I had a delightful time visiting back. :)

  13. Raggedy Anne.. that makes me think about my childhood...

  14. Leslie..hey girl..I was fixing to mail Miss Pink Gingham out and I need your address and your e-mail address. Post it as an email to me!! I think everything is working now!!

    Hugs..Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

  15. Nuts! I can't decide which one I like best - I guess I'll choose the mushroom!

    Those Garden of Verse books are a great item to collect - there are so many different covers - how fun!

  16. Tiddly winks--used to soooo love that game as a child. It is a cute game box you have shown! Your doll seems to be in great shape!
