What Cheer Goodies on Rednesday!

Yeah!  I have a Rednesday post!

Please spread the love, especially to out gracious host Sue @ Sue Loves Cherries!

Well, it's procrastination that has lead me to sharing my What Cheer finds on Rednesday!  Last Friday Mr. Made and I went to the somewhat well known What Cheer flea market.  Flea markets and auctions are not Mr. Made's favorite things, but he indulges me from time to time.  It seems every time I go I take someone different, this time it happened to be his turn.

So, I figure that 4 of the 7 items I bought have red in qualifies for a Rednesday post!

I LOVE the canister set ( I know a certain hostess will like them, too!)  It wasn't priced so I asked the vendor about the seemed fair to me, so I took it.  Funny thing is, as we were nesting it together she told me she had bought it that morning from another vendor.  I wonder what she paid, cuz seriously, I didn't pay that much!

If you are only interested in might want to end here.........not likely, right?

My other What Cheer find.  I nice chippy cabinet....maybe a little too chippy???  We are down to bare wood in spots.

I'm a bad blogger when it comes to taking pictures, but I managed to get Mr. to take a few...

Here's me at the dollar boxes.  This is the first place to hit!  It is busy at the boxes in the morning.  I went back towards the end of the day and nobody was there.  Of course neither were the things I had passed up....why I struggle with myself over a buck I'll never know!  Note to self: hand wipes are NOT enough. Next time I'm taking gloves.  That stuff is DUSTY!

Anyway, I'm holding my morel mushroom.  Anybody else hunt for morels in the spring?  I also bought the plate and Rudolph book at the dollar boxes.

Some things are just too fun to pass up!  I felt more than a little goofy but I had to have a picture with Spiderman!

Nice picture honey!  Was it really necesary to show me from this angle?

Here we are at the end of the day....tired but still smiling.  It was a good day!

BTW-I will mention our daughter also had a VERY good day.  Even though she wasn't with us she managed to get 34 Pokemon figures and 2 Pokemon jelly glasses!  I'd post a picture, just for fun...but they've already melded into her collection!  She has a lot and we have fun finding them for her!


  1. Ohhhh!!! love, love, love ALL the reds!! well done! ;)

  2. Please, please! Leave the chippy cupboard as it is! It's beautiful! If it could only talk!

  3. Oh...I would kill for that chippy cabinet. Thanks for visiting today...lovin' red.


  4. Great finds...careful with sanding that probably has lead in the paint...but it is great...loved your visit !!!

  5. Hi Shelley!
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog today! I don't know if I've ever eaten a Juliette tomato before or not??? But now I'm going to have to plant some next year since your husband only likes them - they must be fabulous.
    Love all of your finds! I especially love the cherry canisters and your chippy cabinet. (I was so surprised and excited to hear my husband utter "When is the next flea market?"! I nearly fainted from the shock of it all teehee.)

    Happy Rednesday,

  6. I'm another fan of the medicine cabinet, they are hard to find but I always love anything red and your reds are great!

  7. I adore all your reds! That cannister set is so me! The cabinet is great too!
    Thanks for visiting me ... I am now a follower of your blog.

  8. I like the cupboard, too, and I LOVE those canisters! I just bought a plaid lunchbox just like yours - aren't they great? Takes me right back to second grade.

  9. Oh My! I know Sue and I could fight over those Cherry Canisters...too cute. Thanks for stopping by this Rednesday. Loved your humorous post today. I myself only do Morel mushroom shopping on Thursday. Tell "honey" he'll never work for Playboy as a

  10. I was REALLY trying hard not to be jeolous, ummm, envious of your rednesday picture..I contained myself from screaming when I saw the pics since my family is still sleeping. You KNOW I'm so loving it all...

    I really like the picture of you and hubby together. That is beautiful.

    Mine is really starting to 'enjoy' going yard saling these days with me. I'm BLOWN away...I'm stunned actually,lol.

    The place you went too, oh my goodness, I would be running up and down the place like a mad woman,,LOL...

  11. Looks like a blast Shelley. I wish I had a flea market like that near me. That cabinet is great, but I really love the herbs planted in the enamel containers!

  12. Looked like great fun ! I love the canister set !

  13. I'm not even going to tell my daughter about that Pokemon score, she would be SO jealous. I'm always supposed to be on the lookout for old Pokemon stuff so I try :->
    xo, suzy

  14. Hi, Shelley,
    What a fun time you had at the flea market and so nice of Mr. Made to go with you. Love the Spidey pic! You sure lucked up on those red, cherry cannisters!!!

  15. Shelley, you have such a great eye for finding the good stuff! Love the canisters, that plaid lunchbox(!), and that perfectly chippy cabinet. Just a little disappointed that the huge cubby didn't come home with you though!

  16. I knew I had read the pokemon jelly glass search somewhere....I have #07 Squirtle and #54 Psyduck sitting in my cupboard...does your daughter need those two for her collection? (happy to send them off - the are the Welch's jelly right?)

  17. So sad that I had to miss What Cheer the last time. October is probably out too! Oh well, always next year, right?

  18. EEK! You KNOW I love your finds! (And I'll wrestle Cherry Chick for them any day!) I have that same Rudolph book - it's so darling. I've just got to get one of those lunchboxes - such fond memories of grade school lunches, which I loved! I can't believe that platter was in a dollar box, wow!
