I really don’t have much red around the house, but at Christmas time, there are always little pops of cheerful red to be found when you look hard enough!
This is still one of my favorite pops of red around Christmas time. I have blogged about it before…
A gift from a dear friend [the same friend that sent me this!]. I think it was given to us on our first Christmas together, but it may have been our second. They’re all starting to blend now…
When I was due with Sophie around Christmas time two years ago, we kept her name to ourselves. We were actually going to name her Lucy Sophia, and had experienced a few negative reactions to the name Lucy, so we decided not to share the name until there was a tiny girl to go with it. My little sister, Hannah saw this ornament hanging on the tree, and was certain that she had learned the name of our baby girl!
As it turned out, Sophie’s name got changed while I was in labor to Sophie Lucia Marie, so all that secrecy was for naught.
The Christmas tree skirt has been in my family since my first Christmas, and maybe even longer. I used to kind of wish I could have some fancy Anthropology tree skirt, but I am really glad that this is the one we still have and use. It’s really quite cozy!
Another gift from a very good childhood friend who also moved way too far away. Geeze, what is it with these people?!
My thrifted ice bucket sports a cheerful red!
A lovely ornament, made by Hannah, and particularly loved and adored by Sophie, who simply can’t resist bling in any form.
Our handy dandy red rubber scraper.
My red hymnal, as mentioned by Mom.
Really, once the kids and I got started looking for red things that we were thankful for, it was hard to stop!
