For this party, I thought I would show you some of my kitchen reds.

This is a metal urn that I found at Hobby Lobby for 80% off...a bargain for $5.00. I did change out the knob on the top. It did have a brown knob...but now it is styling with black and white.

A red lamp that sits on the counter.

My~ cost way to much clock~ that I fell in love with at Southern Market a couple years back. It's so french and and for what it cost, it will have to become a family heirloom...lol ;)

Rooster salt and pepper shaker set....a bargin for $3.00. Mishebe,I know you will love these, and I will sell them to you for.... $$$$$ HMMMM????

See this one little lonely canister....There is a story behind it....I was looking around on that auction website..y'all know the one....I found this adorable, gorgeous, french country, must have canister set. Buuuut it was $75.00 for the set of 3. Waaaay out of my budget....but I put it on watch...and I watched and watched and watched....hoping that my money tree would start to produce some fruits....in the mean time....I was out and about one day, and I took a detour into Big Lots {I have to take that detour alot} while in there, just looking around.....I couldn't believe my eyes!!!! There it set! All three pieces! Just like the set on E*** The pieces were each separate...and the price for all 3 pieces $18.00. Well, I was thrilled to find it...but even more thrilled that I had not bought the whole set on line....It was actually a lot smaller then what I would have been happy with...so after seeing it, I decided I really didn't want all 3 pieces...I just bought the smaller of the 3 to keep splenda in. As soon as I returned home...I emailed that seller and told them I had found that whole set at Big Lots for waaaaay less then they were asking for it. I never heard anything from the seller...but they did delete the listing.


A beautiful Kitchen Aid knife set...but that's all it is...Beautiful! Don't waste your money buying this set....They're not that sharp!

However, on the other hand this Kitchen Aid toaster is a jewel! I love this thing! I know people that don't even own a toaster....how do you live without a toaster...if I had to broil everything...it would be sad thing! Everything would be burnt!

Last but not least, an adorable little red colander. Given to me by Momma! I use this thing almost daily. It's the perfect size for so many foods that need a quick wash.
Well, have I Flaunted My Reds?! I sure hope I have and I hope you enjoyed seeing a few of them. I have enough REDS to Flaunt in a few more posts...so I have posted a poll on my sidebar. Please take the time to vote. Maybe we will do this again. I am thinking about asking some of you, if you would like a chance to host Flaunt Your Reds Party from time to time...so Let me know if that is something you would like to do. You can email me or tell me in your comment.


I want to thank Stacey at Poofing the Pillows for the wonderful idea and I want to thank each one of you for your participation!! I am so honored that you all have linked up! I have received several emails and comments about this RED thing...Your kind words have brought tears to my eyes! Words can't express the feeling I have in my heart for you gals! You all have brought so much warmth and inspiration to me, and I want you all to know that I am so grateful!
I think RED is a popular color that so many of us use all year long, I can see this Flaunt Your Red lasting for a long time. It has been a pleasure to host such a fun party and I look forward to doing it again.

Make sure you visit with the gals that have linked up! Party until you drop!

Instructions for linking up~
Here is a quick check list if you want to sign up~ 1. Grab the Flaunt Your Red button in the top right sidebar. 2. Copy and paste it in your post. 3. Let your readers know where the party is. 4. Come back here and link up using your first name only and use only the your post link for the RED post...not a direct link to your blog! Please do not put your blog name in the name spot....Mr. Linky tends to have problems if there is too many words in that name spot....so please advise...first name only. If you are deleted from the Mr. Linky...then please come back here and read the directions again. It's a Mr. Linky thingy....not my thingy ;) Doing all of the above will put your name (2 times) into the blog makeover giveaway or the Red Surprise giveaway.

There have been a couple of you that have had problems with the button...and you have told me that already...don't worry...You will still be entered.

Come back tomorrow {SAT} for the giveaway.....I'm not sure what time I will have it posted....you know me...it could be on the late side of the day...lol :)

Love your reds Nancy...somebody was watching over you in regards to that darling rooster canister. I would love to have that magnificent Parisian clock on your wall...it was worth every penny, er... I mean $$$$...;-) Bo

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Nancy, :)

Thank you for hosting this festive Red party!
I am sooo excited to see everything since it is my all time favorite color.

Your lampshade is beyond stunning.
I must find one as well.
Love it all!

Have a great evening.
~Melissa :)

Stacey said...

Nancy, your reds are gorgeous...which is no surprise to me!! Your clock is beautiful and like Bo said it was worth it I'm sure. I bought a cheap one at Kirklands and it worked about 2 days. It's still hanging on the wall just because it's pretty.

I can't wait to see what everyone posts. Thanks for doing this!

nikkicrumpet said...

Beautiful reds!!! That knife set has me drooling!

tardevil said...

Love your reds! You know I WAS that eBay seller. I just couldn't rip people off like that. You made me feel guilty! :O) I think I mis-linkied. I typed in my entire blog instead of the post, but it is still directing people to my blog. I tried to correct it, but it wouldn't allow me to do so. Thanks for letting me play along! Oh, and I was teasing about that eBay thing. I've never sold a thing on eBay in my entire life.

tardevil said...

Got so carried away teasing you that I forgot to tell you that my favorite thing is that lamp - GORGEOUS!

Ravishing REDS..I love those little salt and pepper shakers so cute !!!

Kathy :)

Terri said...

Oh, Nancy, that wall clock is TO DIE FOR! I'll have to check that link out.

Tracey said...

I have the same little canister Nancy!! I got mine at Ross...and I love it!!

tardevil said...

I might get it all said EVENTUALLY. I love that clock no matter how much you paid! It was so worth it!

tardevil said...

Nancy, I don't know if you're talking about the wreath on the mirror or the front door, but they both came from Target several years ago. Of course, they didn't put a hanger on the back (just to gripe me :O), so the wreath is hung sideways on ribbon. Can't figure out how to make it straight. The other one is made of jingle bells. Have a good Friday!

Melissa Wertz said...

Nancy, thanks for hosting the party! I have tons more photos for future partys. My house is full of red and burgundy red. :D

Love all your red btw. Beautiful job you have done. That is a beautiful toaster cover.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Morning Nancy! I wanted to thank you so much for thinking of me and inviting me to show my "Red"!lol I've been seeing red, does that count?lol" I am disappointed I haven't been blogging so I didn't have time to get anything on! BUT I Love all the items you posted and Mishebe will have to fight me for those salt/pep shakers! I just love your taste/style! You have made me want to go to Big Lots today (hope they still have some pictures from your last week post). You really got a bargain with those canisters! I am totally worn out but not jumping ship! I keep thinking of the decorating money I'm getting; but I really miss blogging! Thanks again for thinking of me dear and I hope I can participate next time? Have a great weekend - Sincerely Jeannette

Morning Nancy~

I just love all your red and your pictures are GREAT! I'm racking my brain, I don't think I have any red in my home; that's shameful isn't it? It's such a fabulous color.

Have fun today!

Hugs~ J

Darlene said...

Morning Nancy,

I am sooooo upset. My computer is dead...won't do a thing. I have jumped on my hubby's laptop before he leaves for work to let you know why I am not participating....:(

Christina said...

Love all of your red things. The clock is just beautiful and the red urn is just amazing. Found you through Darlene's blog. I'll be back later to look through the links.

bj said...

I am so sorry my name is showing up twice on your Mr. Linky...don't have a clue just what happened and don't know how to get it off now. Sorry, dear one....

philben5 said...

Thank you for hosting such a fun party. I feel like I have found a new family out here in blogland. Love your colander with the moss in it. Have the colander and will soon have the moss:-). Red and green look so great together... Thanks again and so glad I found your blog.
Blessings

Erin said...

I love your red! That clock on your wall is to die for. I also love your red knives. So cute!

Miss Janice said...

Nancy, I don't have anything pretty to flaunt for today...but you sure do. Don't think I didn't notice the battenburg on top of that darling toaster. And, you got your money's worth with the clock it's gorgeous. Everything is beautiful:-)

ceekay said...

All of your red items are fantastic...but I gotta tell you..that clock is just fabulous! Definately a future heirloom.

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

All your reds are great! I wish I would have found you sooner as I would have been prepared to participate. If this is a weekly/monthly thing, I'll link up for next time. I LOVE RED!!!

jennykate77 said...

I LOVE your red...all of it! I have the same red canister thingy from Hobby Lobby...and I also got it for $5! I really adore your red clock. I may come back and play if I can find some pics to do a post with.

I ♥ red!

Have a fabulous Friday!

kimmcl said...

Nancy - I feel the same way about all of the wonderful "ladies" I've been blogging with in such a short amount of time. It has been such a blessing to me! Especially you and Kristen and Betty!! You guys are great! I truly think your home is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. I even added it to my favorites on RMS before I even knew you!! Isn't that a hoot! Anywho, I decided that I like this Red thing so much, that even if I run out of red I will go out that week and purchase something red. After all, we are always looking for an excuse to go shopping aren't we???

Susan S. said...

Hi Nancy...you sure have a lot of pretty red things. Over the past couple of years I've really incorporated a lot of red into my house...before then I had NOTHING red. I love it. It's such a fun, pretty color.

I will participate the next time you have a Flaunt your Red day...I just couldn't pull it together this time. :)

A Hint of Home said...

You have done a great job hosting today. All your reds are so pretty. I do love your clock amd all the kitchen appliances.
I love Big Lot for a variety of things. Did you join their buzz club?
Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog.
As always, I enjoy my visits here.

Alisa Lucas-Brown said...
