Using More Red

I've just realized that I've been using more 
red in my decorating than I thought.
 I use these bowls at Christmas. 
They were being stored in the family room 
armoire. Why not use them now in my red, 
white, and blue kitchen?
 I can use red not just for Christmas, but for 
Valentine's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, 
and all thru the summer.
 So I made a 'Note To Self' the future I will
 store all the 'red' accessories separately 
in one container so that I can access them 
for more holidays. 
 I know there is more red in storage, mingled 
in with the Christmas stuff. I will have a new 
plan for storing it next time.
 Maybe I could just find the red gingham 
pillow covers.....mmmmmm.
What do you think Princess?
 Even my desserts have gone patriotic.
Red polka dot plates will see more use.
A new plan for later and tea for now.



  1. Love decorating with red! I actually just had some red gingham pillows custom made for me the other day :)
    Your dessert looks scrumptios!

  2. oops scrumptious!!!
    Have a great evening :)


  3. Yes, yes! Use those glorious red dishes! :) Love your cute checks inside your cabinets too! I'd love a piece of that dessert, but I'm sure it's gone by now.
    be a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  4. Oh your red dished are so pretty and that dessert looks so delicious!!

  5. I have those same red bowls and a green set as well. Mine came from Walmart a few Christmases ago. Love them.

  6. Those bowls are so pretty, Rita, I think you should definitely keep them out, especially since they go so well in your kitchen.

  7. There's just something about the pop of color that red provides! Love all your red, white & blue pretties!

  8. Gorgeous red!
    Beautiful table! Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  9. Love the addition of the red bowls to your cabinet! I really like that pretty blue and white tea cup too, a cup of tea just has to taste better in it!

  10. I am so happy that you will be using your red dishes more often! I would use them alot during the year. They are so pretty...besides all that they are a happy color and who doesn't need more happy!
    Blessings My Friend,

  19. I don't think I have a bit of red... I've been wanting some for my kitchen...
    Your red looks great!

  20. I ADORE red! Try to keep my stuff stored by color....helps when inspiration strikes!

  21. Loving your red, but have never used it in my home? I want those bowls if you should ever tire of them!

  22. Love the beautiful red! But, I adore your blue and white. Thank you for sharing. Visiting from Common Ground. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Wishing you a grand weekend. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  23. I love using red too! Sometimes I think I should store my items by color(s) and not season and I'd get more mileage out of them - but sadly am not that organized. Jennifer
