Rednesday Is Here Again!

I think this is the cutest little Valentine’s sectional dish.  I found it at our local “antique-junk” mall and paid $9.00 for it.  The price was great because I would have bought it anyway even if the owner had not come when I started haggling with him.  I just love it and am using it to hold different odds and ends I need in my upstairs office/crafting room...thank you Vicki for that suggestion.

I.  have assigned a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place award for the little sections. For some reason this section is my favorite because it reminds me of my tricycle - mine was the normal size - with its little red basket handing from the handle bars and it bell.  That trike was my favorite toy. Our little girl in her yellow came in 1st.

This sweetie pie in her blue gingham received the 2nd place award. I really love the little saying...”I will always stand up for you my Valentine.”

Our little Valentine’s cook with her precious little apron got the yellow ribbon - 3rd place.   Her rosy red cheeks are just too cute.

If you have never visited Sue Loves Cherries, click on this link and pay our great sponsor  a visit.  It is such fun each week to see all of the red the gals are posting.  There certainly are a lot of us who really love our red...and I am definitely at the top of the list.

Happy Rednesday to all of you.


  1. What a cute plate. I just renovated my kitchen to a more modern look. It used to be more country. I had to put all my vintage things away. I miss them so much. Thanks for sharing. Happy Rednesday!


  2. I beat you..I beat you, again...lol...too funny. Honestly, I don't do it on purpose.
    Loving your little RED dish. I'm still playing catch up and out of energy tonight.

  3. I think they all deserved a blue ribbon.

  4. Hey Genie! I have that dish! I bought it new at Target about 5-6 years ago. I always get it out for Valentine's Day.

  5. Hi Genie...

    I'm coming over from Sue's Rednesday party! My friend, your vintage Valentine tray is adorable! Ohhh yes, I could think of sooo many things to use this pretty little tray for! I love the sayings! How awesome that you gave each picture a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place! Love it! Thanks so much for sharing your Valentine treasure with us!!!

    Warmest autumn wishes,

  6. I don't know, but I'm pretty sure I'd have to figure out a way to hang that cutie on the wall! It's so adorable, and I would have snatched it up and payed whatever price I had to, to get it home!
    Happy REDnesday!

  7. VERY, very cute!! I love the old cards and this dish will be perfect about February :)


  8. Genie, the plate is delightful. I had... and I mean had that same plate that I got thrifting last year. I had stored it in my cupboard, on top of a box...and months later was looking for something, I grabbed the box forgetting the dish was up there...over my head it flew and crashed down onto the kitchen floor, breaking intyo a thousand and one pieces... I was so sad, and that wasn't the last thing that broke that day..fumble fingers me also hit a vintage glass vase out of the cupboard which also shattered..my floor was covered in glass, I was bare footed and well, that was it of that. Thanks for sharing it though...make sure you store it in a box, not on top of one...ha ha..Hugs,Mica

  9. I love the cookin 4u one the best. In general I just love the old valentines anyway. Thanks for sharing.
