Crying Over Carved Pumpkins


My dad and my brother Bryan were always big fans of Halloween.

Jeffy and I…



NOT SO MUCH!


We do, however, love the candy!!!  Have fun with your li'l kiddos today!

Ruffles & Rust Vintage Market!



The plan was hatched at Junk Bonanza.
{Which I'll be sharing more photos of SOON!}



"We really need to go on a road trip together!" said my new pal when I arrived at the show.


So we did!

Can you see them?

Can you see them now?


No, silly…but how cool is their booth.

It's cool like the wind.

Ahhh…boy, back to the story.



You know who else is cool like the wind?


Isabel, of Maison Douce with Lisa and her new lady.  


This dress form, apparently. 

THE END

The Road to Ruffles & Rust…an Autumn Detour




On the way to the big show the other day, we took a wrong turn.


What a grand misfortune,

eh?


To top it off…there was a Starbucks just around the corner.

Baby, the Bronze Bull...


When I posted this li'l plaster beauty on Facebook a couple of weeks ago, Sister Patty, said he was "very mooving."  My other friends just didn't get why I had to have him.


What's their beef?
{Okay…that was pretty cheesy.}


Well, I had grand ideas for him.


How do you like my cow??


He just needed to have a bathe.


A Krylon oil-rubbed bronze bathe, that is.


And oh, yeah…




Baby's got back.

Good friends

A nice walk


Mr. Wiggles


A neighbor calling, we had one when I was a wee thing…

Mmm…so beautiful!


Charles W. Fischer thinks so, too.


Mr. Wiggles, that is.


A mountain view & a comfy chair

For the Birds…and for My Auntie




"Oh, no!"


Poor little thing…


This wee Southern Minnesotan hit my auntie's window last month, on a gray misty day, while we were visiting.


I snapped dozens of photos…


And yes,


I prayed for you, little birdie.


I prayed and prayed.


hop




hop




HOP!!!




{I almost missed it!}

Take care, little birdie!  No more windows!


Please be okay.

You too!

The Li'l Red Playlist...


If you like the ol' Standards, Southern Gospel, and Cowboy Boogie…then you've come to the right place! 


Time and again, sweet folks have told me that one of the reasons they visit my blog…is for the music.  In fact, some have said it's worked wonders with their little ones.  I just wanted to let y'all know, including those new to The Little Red Shop, that you can find the link to my playlist over on the left sidebar.

It's currently set to manual play ~ shuffle


Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones


Enjoy!

Oh, and the li'l red windows you see in this post, etc…they're from the bungalow…the one my mama and I rescued and are restoring for The Little Red Shop!

Have a beautiful week!

: )

Vintage Lunchbox Love


STOP!


I know what you're thinking.



"Now that my kids are back in school, I want to get organized and I just don't know where to start!  And…um, I've also been wondering what to do with my old lunchbox."



"Jeff"


Confession:
That's right, this is my brother Jeffy's Disney box, don't tell him…unless you think he happens to know the whereabouts of MY beloved Bionic Woman lunchbox.  


Hmph.

So, what's a girl to do?

Just grab that ol' lunchbox, a couple of terra cotta bricks stuffed in some old inside-out tube socks, pop 'em in the box and it's good to…

 STOP!


And for my kind friends on facebook who thought I shouldn't restore my 5 panel doors…did you get an eyeful of this one?  Nice, ooool' paint jobs, eh?  


Euhhhh!!


What fun is life without projects?

(I'm adding this post, as one of my favorites of 2011…to Beth's link party!)


Now, back to the past...
……………………….

In related lunch & color story news, here is a deleted scene from yesterday's post.

{Do not try this at home!}


"Yum" mug ~ Bath & Body Works
{Shh…don't tell, I bought it at GW for $1.00!}

"Sweet" mug ~ Chaps Coffee Co.
{A birthday gift from my mama, the night we dined at Chaps!}


Happy Frugal Friday, everyone!
