Small Reds

Hi All,
It's Rednesday ! You can link on to other Reds at A Very Cherry World.
Thanks Sue!
This is an Apron tag that I made for Cindy at Rick Rack and Gingham- Mary Englebreit Apron Tag Swap. I put them in the mail today. My first swap and my first tag. It was fun to make. Thanks Cindy.
This is a red vignette in my craft room. The little dress form pin cushion was my Mom's. She was quite a sewer. The little girl figure I picked up at an antiques store-I love her polka
dot dress and red shoes.
I found this at a thrift store and added the yummy gum balls-great when you need a pick me up!
Last Red for today is also in my craft room. A little doll coat and hat and the little chubby girl in the pic is Yours Truly. I only had the best clothes for Easter-I' was all decked out! It looks like I'm wearing a paper plate on my head! hope you enjoyed my Reds.

Hope you have a great day!


  1. Hi Leslie!
    I love all of your reds! Your apron tag is so darling, you did a wonderful job! I hadn't heard about that swap, what a fun one. I'll look forward to seeing the rest of the swap.
    Your craft room things are adorable. (I really need to get decorating! Woe is me.) & I love your photo - they must have overfed us in the 50's! I'm am the beefiest little girl you've ever seen in my photos. Sheesh.
    Happy Rednesday!

  2. Your apron tag is adorable! That's my kind of craft! I like the gumball machine too. Cute!

  3. Leslie..it is hard for me to get a message out on blogs..but I had to try!! Girl you did a wonderful job on the aprons. You can tell you sew!! The detail is just like a real apron!! I'm so excited to be putting these together for the swap!!!I will think of my new friend Leslie..everytime I look at it.

    Hugs..Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

  5. As your blog was loading on my computer I caught a little glimpse of the ME Apron and said out loud "OMG"! How cute is that! I so want to see everybody's creations from the swap. You did a wonderful job.
    The I laughed when I saw your dress form pin cushion. I had one exactly like that. I think it's still around here someplace. Too funny.
    Thanks for sharing with us on Rednesday.

  8. Hi Vickey! I didn't get to buy those I'm with you tooooo pricey. I have seen them at the Oh. Valley Ant. Mall for $2 a set=$8. This vendor wanted well over $20 with the placemats...and wouldn't haggle so I left them. If you look on one of my sites I have a gift set for sale...apron, tablecloth, and glasses, and I would love to have plate set to go with it.
    I know...I could kick myself for not picking those $2 sets up, but I went back to the booth for...someone had already got to them.(wah)

  9. It's all so very cute! Your tags are adorable, whoever receives them will be thrilled.

  10. Your little coat and hat are so cute. I love when baby clothes are displayed with old photos of them being worn.

  11. What a cute blog you have. Could I buy one of your apron tags from you.

  12. I did truly enjoy your reds! I at first thought those apron tags were real aprons. That's how realistic they are. Love that little red get up.

  13. What fun reds you have and your picture with the doll coat is just one of the cutest things I've ever seen. What a great idea!

  14. I love your pincushions they are so cute, especially the dress form pincushion. The gumball machine is great, the pink and red gumballs look so pretty in it. What a wonderful collection of red.


  15. That tag is the cherry on top of the sundae, Leslie! And I love the little girl in the polka dot dress too. She's a cutie!
