stuck in December on Rednesday

(Please visit Sue at It's A Very Cherry World for more Rednesday fun!)

Yoohoo! Hello! Happy Rednesday!

Another Rednesday has arrived and I do apologize, I am still digging myself out of boxes from my parents house and I came across these Christmas reds in one of the boxes this morning and thought, hmmmm they're RED and today is Rednesday. (the good news is that I am sending at least 16 boxes of paperwork off to be shredded tomorrow HURRAY HURRAH! Sixteen boxes lighter - doing the happy dance!)

I found this sweet repro doll ornament with a frozen Charlotte type head and these fun vintage thingies; two vintage chenille decorative doodads and a vintage Scandinavian candle holder, sadly missing one of its appendages WAH!

My mom would always recycle cute gift wrapping - here's a bit of some darling vintage Hallmark Christmas wrapping, circa the 1960's. Isn't it darling, I love the family portraits over the settee.

Happy Rednesday to everyone! Sure hope I wasn't the cause of any post-holiday heebie jeebie breakouts - I know it can be hard for some to revisit the holidays after January 1st teehee!
