Oh, I too, love red. It is by far my favorite color. I have a lot of it. In fact, my post today featured and one last week too. You have great red things! Thank you for sharing.

I have a LOT of red in my kitchen too, but I think the only pictures that I've posted are the ones about the pantry redo. I just love the red and white checked shelf liner in there. I also have it in all the cupboards and drawers.

I just love those polka dotted dished you have! Glad to see that you had enough nerve to paint the cupboards red. I have found that the older I get, the more I just do as I please! How about you?

I better get more pictures taken so I can share too.

See ya soon ;)

First BJ, I don't normally have my sound on when visiting blogs, but this morning it was. I LOVE Old Time Rock and Roll! You had me up and dancing around my studio before 9AM!!

I love red too. It is my accent color and in almost every room of my house. You have some wonderful reds....

Thank you for stopping by and leaving such sweet comments. Of course, I'm definitely tagging along on your blog too. I'm enjoying browsing around.
Can't beat red. And you have so many red pretties! I had red cabinets one time and loved them! My fav red of yours is the little red Bible which belonged to your mom. Priceless!

Hi BJness! I love your reds! I especially love your red hutch with your blue and white dishes! Gorgeous!!
I must tell you, I made your lettuce wraps tonight, except I used deli ham and they were so delicious! Mr. Precious ate three and I had two!!!
He said, "Get more recipes from that lady!" ;) Keep 'em comin'!! :)

BJ! Where did you get those polka dot dishes? I loves them!!!!!!!!!!! Also, if you don't stop posting pictures of your Mackenzie Childs stuff I'm going to have to fly down there and steal them all from you! Oh, the jealousy!!!

And have we ever seen full shots of your kitchen? Any kitchen with red cabinets is something I want to see. Have I mentioned that red is my favorite color too?
