Visit The Brambleberry Cottage for 14 Days of February to see the latest additions from the participants. I know Liz has done a lot of work to make this a fun month. Today's post is Seeing Red.
I'd rather be seeing cardinals in the yard, but they just don't come to Colorado. These two came home with me after I stopped in Eaton at Victoria's Tiny Tea Room one Saturday in December after going to see my mom. Julie is the best shop owner in Eaton as far as I'm concerned. She has developed four small cottages into a small town business empire. It is right on the highway and so easy to stop by and drool at all the lovlies. And the tea room!! Oh my, you should be so lucky!
I think this one was from a trip to Estes Park. Each trip up the Thompson Canyon is a favorite and has been a summer family tradition for many years. We have been there in the winter for their Christmas parade right after Thanksgiving, too. I like to take the birds to school to help the children have a visual aide for our winter poems. Most of the kids learn to love poetry with me!
This cardinal came home with me before Christmas this year.
There's not much red around right now, but what teacher doesn't have the "Little Red Schoolhouse"? I don't collect apples as many teachers do. I seem to have enough other collections. (I know I have enough stuff)! Maybe sometime I'll get around to sharing a picture of my small antique school desk. It is my understanding that there aren't too many of the smaller ones around.
A red tea kettle to heat water in for our tea time.
Here I tried to arrange red things. I usually don't have things out because of the two kitties that let me live here. I've had the dolly for a long time and have always referred to her as my Danish doll. I think an aunt gave her to me.
Hope you enjoy seeing red and will have a happy day and a great weekend.
