Some Reds That Have Been Part Of My Week

Hi everyone!

It has been a hectic week so far here at Casa Chaos. I know, it’s only Wednesday. Good grief! So, instead of posting about new thrift finds or something like that, I am showing you all the little red glimpses that I have been dealing with this week.

First up, we finally got together with friends and exchanged our Christmas presents this past weekend. One of the gifts we received was this nice red and black set of bowls.

After we exchanged gifts we all headed to SteviB’s for a little pizza buffet action.

Just a little sneak peek at the project I have slowly been working on at night while watching TV.

Another project we have been working on. Getting all the gazillion books I have that we have read all boxed up to take to the flea market this week. I used to sell on Ebay, but for small priced items like books, the cost is way to much. so, I have been saving all the plastic grocery bags to have ready to use at the flea market.

Thank goodness for sugar free Gatorade! Since my bout with exhaustion and dehydration, I am having a hard time maintaining electrolytes. Gatorade is a great way to get them but, all the sugar calories is so not good.

  13. Hi Diann! So good to be back chatting with sweeties like you! I just laughed when I read Casa Chaos. Those bowls are wonderful! I can't wait to see your finished project.

  14. Thanks for coming by my Post and leaving a comment. Red is such a vibrant happy color, but when I heard it also stimulates the appetite I had to somewhat ban it from my kitchen *wink*... guess that's why so many Fast Food joints have it as a staple in their decor!? *LOL* But I do have some fab Retro Red pieces that I adore and bring out every so often.

  15. There are a lot of reds in this world. It is fun to be observant.
