Rednesday and other various pictures.

Hello all! I decided to add another post today. I took time out from my house cleaning this weekend to do a little flea marketing/antique shop shopping. The flea market I went to is usually huge and I have not been able to go all summer. It only happens once a month and this was the last one. But the weather has turned chilly and it rained most of the weekend, so not only were there not many customers but there were not many sellers. I got a tablecloth that I thought would work for fall, a lock with key for the one missing in a cupboard I have been painting, (I'll show you that when it is done), some cinnamon almonds for hubby and two red Fiesta bowls, (not old). I didn't spend much and had been saving my spending money for a couple of weeks so I headed for my friend Angie's antique shop in town. I got this red rocking chair just in time for Rednesday at http://suelovescherries.blogspot.com/

I also bought this sewing basket that I plan on doing a little painting on to work it into my living room. I needed something I could leave close to me to store whatever I am working on. My Ladybug steals things right out of the open basket and off the top of my end table so I have to hide things from her.

Finally here is what Ladybug does not do often. DREAM, she usually leaves that for me.

And with my grandson who does not do a lot of this sleeping business either.

Nope, this is usually how Miss Bug acts.

We have to sit our grand children up on stools in front of the TV to be able to eat their popcorn with a movie. There she is, Ladybug, waiting for every little bite that might hit the floor. She is just a puppy you know. A spoiled puppy that is.

Thanks for stopping by Brenda.
I love your little red rocker...so perfect for teddies! How old is Ladybug? She's a real beauty. I have a 4 legged companion but he's an old man now and sleeps ALL the time.
Have a happy REDnesday.

Hi Brenda,
Love all your reds! I've been keeping my eye out for a child's chair; rocker or plain, doesn't matter. Ladybug is adorable! Happy REDnesday.

Wow! A red rocker AND red stools - super! The girls look so cute on their stools!

I think you should use the sewing basket as a secret stash for your own favorite snacks! Have a great day!

Hi Brenda, so glad you came by and joined in for the give-away. Your pup is just the cutest! and your little gals sitting on their stools is just so sweet! You're on the right track, you know, you're doing great posts and you're leaving comments and you're joining in. I'm involved in a few weekly parties and then I do as many blog parties as I can. That is the best way to make friends and increase readership. I'm joining you as a follower.
So nice to meet you, come back and visit often!
p.s. Your cassarole looks so delish!

Hi Brenda, I'm glad you enjoyed my post. I just started blogging in May and have found it to be a wonderful experience. You are off to a great start.

I have met several bloggers who are Scotty owners. You might like visiting Becky at Sweet Cottage Dreams and Jean at In the Garden with Miss Jean. They are both listed in the my right sidebar at the top under California Freiends. Rocky Creek Scottie Adventures is listed further down with blogs from all over. I think you will enjoy all three.

Hi Brenda,

I'm so glad you came by to visit us. We are always looking for new Scottie friends. Ladybug looks like a cutie. In fact I call my Lilly - Lillybug and when she has puppies I call them my buglets. We are hoping for a new litter of buglets in December.

It looks like we have a lot in common - flea markets, antique shops and RED!!

Please come see us anytime.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Hi Ladybug! We read about you over at the Rocky Creek Scottie's blog!
We have a wooden barrel similar to yours that's up on legs and it's been made into a lamp! It used to belong to our Nanny but mom and dad inherited it now that nanny has passed on!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

LOL! Your last picture is a hoot. Dogs sure love popcorn. We had a beagle and that was her favorite treat. Talk about spoiled, we started popping corn...more for her than us!
Living it up at Lakewood,

Miss Jean said...

Brenda: Thank you for stopping by my blog and your kind words. I just love Ladybug. She and Maggie could be great friends. I'm originally from Battle Creek so I miss the autumn leaves and weather back there. I'll for sure keep stoping by.

Hi Brenda and Ladybug,

We read about you at the Scotties place too. We have lots of little grandbipeds hanging around here too. They are pretty good about dropping us some crumbs.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hello Brenda...Ladybug is a cutie...wish she and our Reuben could get together...they look so much alike, although Roo is a mini schnauzer.
