Rednesday at Homestead Handcrafts....


First, I can't believe it's already Wednesday and second, I can't believe I actually have a few minutes to put up a Rednesday post over at Sue Loves Cherries!

This past Saturday I wasn't rushing to do anything or be anywhere, so the girls and I headed over to Homestead Handcrafts, probably one of my favorite places to go! I can literally spend hours just perusing through the store. There is always new, beautiful things and I definitely have lots of items from them decorating my house!

My sister collects Coke products and Homestead has plenty to offer!





They always have the cutest displays set up. I LOVE aprons and this display really caught my eye!


You have to really take your time and look at each piece, other wise you could miss some really great deals!!


I know these have no red in them but I couldn't resist posting some Grade Cards from the 1930's!! Apparently "Charles Le Sage" was only promoted to the low 3rd grade...ouch!


I thought this was such a cute set-up. I love, love, love the Americana theme.






I am soooooo over it being hot!!! (In fact, our high Friday is 107!!!) I love fall, the colors, smells, decorations, and this display had me so excited and ready for fall to come!!!




I have no jungle theme in my house, but this cute little pair of monkey candles made me want to set up at least a jungle themed corner! They were too cute. And the palm tree candle holders??? Too cute!!


This little Keebler elf was one of my favorite red finds. I am seriously thinking about going back and getting him because I don't have a cookie jar and could really use one!



I can't wait to see all the other "red" posts. Don't forget to stop by Sue's lovely blog for more red goodies!

hi April, love all your reds today. I enjoyed collecting Coke signs, glasses and trays in my younger years. I still enjoy looking at Coke collectibles. Thanks for the tour today, I could stroll and look there an entire afternoon.
Nice to meet you at Rednesday......

Hi, Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving the nice message. I wanted to let you know that isn't wallpaper, but shelf paper. But Oh wouldn't that be wonderful wallpaper?

I think that I, too, could spend all day in the store you spoke about! I see several things that would be nice to have!

Very nice pics. I love the Cola couple* :)

So many cute reds...I've always loved old tin signs. They're so nostalgic. I think that Spaghetti one is pretty neat!

Can you imagine having a boyfriend with a polka dot bow tie?

I’M FOND OF CERISE

For red my affection is great,
It’s puce and chartreuse that I hate.
I’m fond of cerise,
It makes a nice piece
Of clothing that looks just first-rate.

I love summer so much, but I agree with you, I'm ready for Fall too! That place looks like it's got something for everyone. I haven't been to any shops in months, so seeing all of this has got me excited to go one day real soon!
Happy REDnesday,
Carol
