The event is to bring AWARENESS about drugs and help in preventing our young people from EVER getting into this horrible trap...
To do MY part in this amazing and important event,
I pledge to post something RED every day of that entire week, with mention each day of
BLOGS are an AWESOME way to spread important news, worthwhile causes and the likes.
PLEASE consider what YOU might do to spread the awareness of drug and drug prevention for the children growing up. Let's help in any way that we can.
I am already working on MY 'bout you??
The color RED is powerful....and better still, beautiful !!
This adorable tin wall pocket was sent to me from DEBBIE and I LOVE IT...

I'm a red addict, too. Thanks for posting about the awareness of drugs. I'm scared too death for all of those unfocused young people out there. Sally

Love you Martha

Barbara said...

Great thing you are doing about the awareness of drugs, I will try to remember to post something also.

Love your red and yes they make me feel happy. I have a good friend in the hospital (no support from her kids) so Roy and I will take care of her and I am going out of town this weekend and then on vacation on the 24th, so I am feeling pressured.
I know you didn't ask for this information, but I just needed to tell someone.

that little wall pocket is simply adorable..btw i think red ribbon is a fabulous cause!

SmilingSally said...

I like touches of red. One wall in my former family room was red, and I'm planning to do the same thing on one of my future family room walls.

Stacey said...

You are so good! I bet all the school kids are wearing red this week. We always did when I was teaching.

I'm loving your red post BJ. So glad you like your wall pocket, and it looks great with the plant in it. :)


Mary said...

BJ, I just love that red wall pocket. So unique. And my daughter would love to wear the red hat that is in your son's shop. She had one very similar in the 80s.

Wishing you a great rest of the week, my friend.


Carletta said...

The wall pocket is so cute! It's just the kind of thing I'd buy for myself.
Love your collage!
Nice reminder for Red Ribbon Week. I have to find my little red dress pin. :)

GM BJ, what a great message my friend..I don't have alot of Reds in my house but would love to do this on my blog...this is a really important message to spread..Girl years ago in 84 I did a speech on "Just Say No" with our Lions International convention and Nancy Regan was our key note speaker at that time and she even had on a Red suit...I got to meet her afterwards and talked to her about our nations problems with drugs at that time...So let me see what I can come up with in REDS...May you have a great day my friend...hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Hey B.J, is there anything in your house that isn't red? I'll bet you keep Santa wearing his RED all year long!
Very pretty reds here, I especially like the red bucket with the flowers.
Happy RT, Thank you for peeking in. I learned to drive in a 1937 Ford. Is that older than the one you had? :-)
