"Red-nes-day at the wienee ranch"

Today is my very first time linking up to "Red-nes-day" at

Sue is also hosting a Christmas tag swap. In this swap, you just may one tag and send it to your partner. You can also send a few little Christmas goodies if you want to, put it is not required. I hope you will go over and give it a look and join us for some fun.

Okay for my red pictures. I finally found the red and white kitchen canister that I have seen in many of your homes. I only was able to get three from the set but I am on the search for the other pieces to add to it. I also have an extra lid because the lid that was in the set does not fit on the tea canister. I was in a hurry when we stopped at the sale and I just picked it up and didn't look in it to see how many pieces they were. Oh, well, I only paid 8.00 for it so I am not too upset.

The next pictures are of my dachshund/pet tree. The ornaments are mainly different doxies but there are a few cats and a chow chow ornament in honor of our Chow Chow that we had. Leo was the sweetest dog ever. He was more of a light orange/blondish color and he looked like a little lion cub when he was a puppy. We had him for the first 10 years of Dana's life and then one day he was just gone. We searched and searched but never found him.

Shirley, I posted the pictures of the tree because you asked me to and you are too sweet not to grant yuour wish"O)
Have a great day everyone!!

I hope you have enjoyed peeking at one of my favorite trees. I love this one so much that it stays up year round in our sitting room area. You can just see the bottom of
one of my antique telephones. Thank you for stopping by!

You are so sweet! I'll check back later to look at your pics. I still have two more houses to get done for the Very Cherry ornament swap, so I guess I'll get off the computer and get something done. =D

Such a sweet tree! I'm glad I came back to see the pics!

Such a cute tree! I'm glad I came back for a peek. I'm a golden retriever fan, but I sure haven't collected enough ornaments for a whole tree. Next puppy, the collecting starts in earnest. =D

It's never too early to see a Christmas tree all decked out!


Imagine a world without red
For either a robin or sled:
How drab it would be
No scarlet to see,
But only grey shading instead!

I'm glad to know another friend who enjoys keeping up a year-round tree. Your kitchen canisters are pretty sweet too. Happy Rednesday!

SueLovesCherries said...

Luv, luv, luv the canisters! I'm assuming you have that cute tree up all year round!

I've always wanted a set of those canisters, but after losing a few times on Ebay, I gave up! Love your pet tree too. I'm so happy to have a kitty again, and the only thing to make this house complete would be to have a dog too!
Have a great weekend!
