Birthday Reds

It's Rednesday and today I'm sharing a gift I received last week for my birthday from my dear friend Donna. Look how she's packaged everything-just so I could post it on Rednesday!(Just kidding) It was so cute!
Look at all the red and cherry items. There were cherry cupcake papers,ME ribbon, chipboard shapes, cherry rub-ons and magnet. Also -check out the vintage looking cherry soda bottle. I'll add that to my red and white display.I love the cute cherry linen that she added and everything put into a cheery cherry tin!
My fave thing was this adorable pin cushion she made-She got the idea from a blog, and used a thrifted little chair and a piece of my fabric. Don't you just love it? I do. Than we a had a day of antiquing and she took me out to lunch. You couldn't ask for more than that! Thanks, Donna.

Happy Rednesday! I'm joining Sue at It's a Very Cherry World, so go on over to check out more reds.

  4. Hi Leslie!
    You have the most darling reds always! What a wonderful friend and perfect gift for you. Your chair pin cushion is the cutest thing and I'm guessing it's going to spawn a mad hunt for little chairs to replicate it! :)
    Another wish for a Happy Birthday and Happy Rednesday,

  16. Hi Leslie! Happy Rednesday!
    What a wonderful gift. Love the pincishion.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I was surprised by the similarity in some of the furniture pieces to IKEA's catalog. What goes round comes back round. Maybe it's cause us 'kids' want the old stuff back...or just the feeling of back then.

  24. Hi Leslie!
    Thank you so much for your kind words and good thoughts! I keep looking at the LAPD site to make sure the culprits have been arrested and they haven't updated it yet. ARGH! I have this creepy feeling that there are more than the two involved since our block has been hit a lot lately. And to think that they returned to the same house again where they were nearly caught, not the least bit put off by it. So scary.
    Right now we're waiting for the call to see how our baby doggie is and if she can come home today. We dropped her off this morning and then went out to an auto museum my husband had been wanting to visit in an attempt to distract ourselves from the "waiting". WAH! My stomach is doing flip flops.
    Thanks again! Hope you're cooling off over there.
    Sally
