Almost every one visiting Susan in her It's a Very Chery World shows a little cherry something. I love red, but I'm a strawberry girl..what can I do? Well, I am happy to say I have come to the cherry side of the world....and didn't even realize I had.....you see I've had these items for quite a while....actually before I started blogging.
This 1940's plaster fruit wall plaque was bought many years ago and I just realized there's cherries in the mix...see! And this summer shirt............................
is a fav of mine. It's filled with flower and produce seed packets reproductions. I found I bought it years ago cause it has strawberries, but upon closer inspection last week, I found one seed packet of cherries! I was so excited to have 2 things. Oh, I guess I should've split em up...done two posts, but heck I'm so excited. Does this mean I'm part of the official club? (This is not the surprize)
This week I made a couple of fun purchases for my crafts area.
First, keep the eye jokes to yourselves....I found this great red task lamp at Wal-mart for $9 and.....
This whimsicle fabric sewing machine cover at JoAnn's for 50% off with my coupon...it was under $12:) (this is not the surprize)
I also found some wonderful things with red recently...no this isn't the surprize either......
These transfers are from the 40-50's. The sewing store I found them in was in a small town and they were having a sale on embroidery transfers they had found in the back room...gotta love those little small towns.
And, this apron.......
was a little plain so I added some vintage hankie accents. As you can see by the hoop, I decided to kick it up anotch with embroidery too.
Now for the Surprize!!!!
I'm having a little givaway.
A while back I found some great old mini hoops, quilt scraps, and lace. Well I also found some retro cherry fabric..at the same shop found the transfers....and I hand-embroidered one of the cherry bunches and created an applique. Here's part of the giveaway.........................
It's a wallhanging for the kitchen or dining room. It also fits over a small compot as a lid. I have a few other cheery cherry things to go along with it, but I'll leave that for the recipient's surprize to open.
This giveaway will be open till next Rednesday...er.... Wednsday Sept.8th When I'll announce the winner.
All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog.
Now, let's go over to Susan's thru Here and visit all the other Rednesday posts!
