Oh good lord, how time flies. Sorry ladies I have not much to offer for this weeks redness.
Ridiculously expensive cushions, love them though, Jan Constantine out of the UK sells them.

We really need to start 'knocking off' her stuff and drive the prices down lol......

I cannot believe that it has already been a week since I last posted for Rednesday.

Here is today's offering in Red.

You can tell that it is getting to be 'that time of year'. I popped in the good old dollar store the other day and found these goodies.

Two red plates, the perfect size for my stand. Some very cute neoprene coasters, some bunting for the front deck (when that day arrives) and the cutest red and white check apron...all for 5 buckaroos!

Have you discovered any red goodness recently?

Can you say *Tiffany*?

I left work early AGAIN (my paycheck is going to be a stinker), since I am still addlebrained from being ill for so long. But a pick-me-up was in order, so I swung by the GW on my way home, hoping to pick something up...hehe. I did a quick scan, wasn't up for deep digging. I came up with....a Buffalo China serving dish for $1.99, a pewter baby cup made in Sheffield (where my sis was born) and a lovely sterling silver necklace that was oh so shabby, but after polishing it up I knew it was a Tiffany knockoff. Total: $6.99. NOT SO SHABBY EH?

Feeling a bit shabby today.

Not feeling too chirpy today. Day nine of bronchitis and I finally went to the doctor and got some antibiotics.

How to store stuff

I am having this on going dilemma in my studio as to how to store stuff that I need, but can be easily accessible.

From necessity comes invention...
 This great box of drawers for some reason was not working for me albeit I totally grew out of its space.

I was at the dollar store today (more to be revealed next Rednesday) and I bought some more of these totally brill and cheap storage boxes. A couple of these with some tabs to say what is in each section...voila, great storage for stamp pads.

Cigar box to 'whatever' box..

I saw these little cigar boxes at the corner store and asked the lady to save them for me, which she kindly did. I just transformed one really quickly for the "Transformation Thursday" party. Some spray paint, a bit of felt, rickrack, rubons, ready to GO. As per usual, crap photography...but hey, you get the idea.  Linking to

Loverly Smellies

If you use fragrance like I do, you are always looking for less expensive ways to get it. 
I purchased a few oils from this company, and I CAN TELL YOU, they are great. 
I use them on my skin, in my lotions, in my bath and bath salts, in my oil burner. 

I highly recommend them, so check 'em out.

$3 and only a few pennies more!

I get a little mad (crazy, for US readers) when I have tips in hand.   Woohoo $4.00 for the whole week! I had to go to GW to see what they had. Was very quiet for once, no mad mamma's scouring the aisles.
OMG they had some Susie Cooper saucers, they were all cracked to say the least, but who at the GW in the US would know who Susie Cooper was ?
Susie Cooper (29 October 1902 – 28 July 1995) was a prolific English ceramic designer working in the Stoke-on-Trent pottery industries from the 1920s to the 1980s.

I love finding cool stuff even if I can't use it.

I am so cheeky!

As you can probably tell (hehe), I changed my background again. Let me know what you think!
