Love of Red

This last Saturday, I had high hopes of being able to go to some garage sales. But as nature would have it, it was a very rainy, drippy day. Those kind of days are wonderful for our garden, but not for catching a garage sale or two! We did manage to go to a couple, but we were soaked very quickly.

We happened to be near a TJMaxx, which we no longer have near us, and I couldn't pass it up without going inside. I found this darling red teapot. It reminds me of Kim's sweet teapots! It cost me $8 which I consider to be a bargain for a new teapot! This little red teapot looks like she'd serve up the most wonderful teas. The other find of the day was the vintage red and white dominoes from a shop in a quaint little town near my in-laws. I paid more for them than I would have liked to, but I love them!

I LOVE TJ Maxx, but don't live near one. Maybe that's a good thing?! You are so right, those dominos are amazing. They look wonderful with the star in that jar. I'm too chicken to do the little house swap. You better share!

What a lovely display, Anita! That really is a great red teapot. It sure was a bargain at $8.00. TJ Maxx is a wonderful store...I don't get there nearly often enough.

Hi Anita! I found your blog through comments you made on my blog (thank you!) You have a beautiful blog!

Love the teapot. I have one almost exactly like that, but it is split in half horizontally so the bottom is a big tea cup and the top is a pot. But it is the same shape and bright red, I will have to take pics soon and put it on my blog to show you!

Have a great day! :O)
