More RED

Old house in downtown, great red brick
New book that I will someday get to!
The side of First Bapt. but what I really wanted you to see was one of the few brick roads that are left in Macon.
This was my great grandmothers chair, very small but it fit her perfect. She
must have added this fabric when the original wore out, it needs a lot of
work but I love having it.

Part of booth display pic for the festival app, notice my red walls
Yes, this is red, so deep it was almost black, pic from the fest.

St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Macon, built in 1823, I think

The title of this book is Life of the Party !

First Baptist Church in downtown Macon, Ga. thought the brick was a great shade of red

Great reds in this old postcard
Not red, but a great book that I just bought at Barnes&Noble
Cross stitch sampler in my living room

All of the items that didn't sell will be in my etsy shop soon.

I was so busy getting things ready for the Daylily festival that I didn't get around to posting more pics for the ISAWRED challenge or some of the crafts we were selling at our booth. On Friday we loaded our trucks and went to Gray, Ga. for the festival and had really thought it would be cool under the pecan trees, boy was I wrong. We had the hottest two days out there, I mean absolutely miserable. Usually we don't start seeing the 100's until July and even August but Friday was 101 and Sat. 100 degrees. No breeze blowing at all and sitting under a tent was horrific. I do not like to sweat and especially when I went to the trouble of fixing my hair and makeup but I literally poured sweat all weekend. It was nasty, running into my eyes down every crack and crevice imaginable, just nasty! When I was a teenager I couldn't wait to lay out in the sun all summer and never once thought it was too hot but now I am old and just can't take the heat. I did get to meet a lot of nice people though, one being Tammy, go visit and say hello. I also met another blogger but cannot find her card, once I do I will link to her so everyone can visit.

I hope everyone has a great week and I will post more pics soon of a journal/scrapbook I am working on.

a RED letter day

I'm back, whadda ya know. I faithfully visit everyone out there and never get around to my blog but while visiting over the weekend I spied this challenge and decided I had to get in on this. Red is my absolute favorite color so I knew this would be a cinch! I didn't say professional so bear with the photography skills. Make sure you visit Sara to see who else is participating in the I Saw Red project.

I have been getting all of my "stuff" ready for the Daylily Festival in Gray, Ga. this weekend. Lots of journals, notecards, tags, altered scrapbook/journals, wallpaper packets and the coolest serving trays a friend of mine has made. Obviously whatever does not sell will be in my etsy shop on Mon. I would love to meet some of you so if you are near by come to the festival and introduce yourself.

I will be back tomorrow, don't forget to visit everyone on the I Saw Red list!!
