Moving On and Rednesday

Fortunately for me yesterday was this one's birthday. You can't really continue to feel sorry for yourself when she's ever so happy. Dad makes a rockin' carrot cake which also helps!
So it's time to move on and get ready for the next one. Up this weekend is a flea market/antique-ish show. It will be better. It will be better. As I began pulling out items to bring I thought I'd do a couple of reds.
Polka dots on an apron. How much do I love this?
And a red tool box with a car graphic. Now that's a "man-tique" for you. Wouldn't it be great in a little boy's room? Said boy could hide his treasures inside. In fact my own boy is trying to get his mitts on this one!
Now I'm off to open many, MANY packages of Lalaloopsy dolls for a certain 6 year old. I love these toys. LOVE them. Positively adore them and no, they are not paying me to say that. Of course if someone at the company were to see this post and want to send some more to the Princess I wouldn't say no...! They are so creative (although I am headed towards a world of hurt trying to get through all the plastic packaging).
Show details are on my sidebar. Saturday and Sunday at the Hara Complex in Dayton, OH.

That toolbox is pretty cool! Hope you have a great show this weekend. It's not that far from here so maybe I'll stop on by if I get some free time.

Awesome apron! And, wouldn't I kill to find a toolbox like that! Reminds me of Speed Racer!

I think I kinda fancy that toolbox myself! And I had to Google Lalaloopsy dolls. They sure are cute, and if my daughter wasn't in college, I'd probably be going to the ends of the earth to get them all. For her. Not me. Seriously, for Her!
Happy REDnesday!

Oh my gracious, wouldn't my grandsons love that toolbox for their "special stuff!" And hopefully, that show will be better in November with Christmas on its way. :) Have a lovely rest of the week.

You found plenty of nice reds to share. That is why we must love and enjoy the children while they are small, as they grow so fast.

Hello to a fellow Ohioan! Love your reds. I have just became your newest 'follower' and you blog is goin right up on my Bloglist. I see you're from around here. I'm in the Cincy area..Sharonville actually. I think the shows in this area have been horrid too...I think it's Cincinnati.
Well, now that we know where we are in Blogland, let's not be strangers!

Hope your sale is going well! I've been so busy and had no time to do much thrift shopping. Hit my first estate sale of the year on Friday and found a few things. :-)
