Wednesday Reds!

Our kitchen entry from the garage. I have to be careful and put unbreakables in this area since everyone tends to knock things off of my little chest as they enter with groceries and such! The "Rise and Shine Rooster" was painted by my dear mother, who decided a couple of years ago that she wanted to learn to paint on gourds. I think she did an excellent job!

I just adore this children's cookbook from 1955. It has the sweetest pictures in it! Just the little sifter alone makes my heart swoon! Oh, and the sugar canister! Wish I could find one just like it.

Happy Rednesday Everyone!

Your mother did well indeed! My mother learned to paint the year she turned 40 and now here I am, really getting into crafting after 40. I hope to always be learning and growing till the day this life is over and a new one begins!

Oh couldn't you just crawl into that cook book's cover! How precious! I wonder if there *is* a canister like that or if the artist just made it up in her head? Too fun!

I always enjoy coming by here. I'm so glad you decided to start up a blog! ♥

That sifter caught my eye right away too! Such a sweet cover, and I bet it's chock full of wonderful illustrations. LOVE your Mother's gourd. She did a really wonderful job!
Happy REDnesday,

Cute vignette! The book holder looks especially nice there. I've been meaning to tell you that I love the glass jars in your header!
