It is still cold and icy here in Georgia!  I'm glad to see some sunshine today, but with temps falling into the teens tonight we will have icy roads again tomorrow.  

I'm redoing the cubbies, taking down the Christmas and so far I've really been enjoying the red cardinals.  Here they are along with a few other reds! 

These cute S&P's are from Cracker Barrel
I found them at a thrift shop for $1
This cute container with cardinals on it had yummy home made candy in it from my friend Sue
 I enjoy using cardinals in my decorating
 They add that pop of color

This is a cute ornament from Target but she looks cute in the cubbies on this cold day
Another red glass bird

I love this red glass vase
Sara & Blake gave it to me for Christmas
Pretty in the window!

Cherry and cheery! I love those red cardinals too. They are such a fun touch and of course the red in everything pops! Sounds terribly cold there too. Cheery red makes it a little better.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Linda, I like cardinals, too. I love seeing them outside in the winter time. Their color just stands out amongst the gray or rather white now. This snow needs to go away. I am tired of being stuck at home. Of course I have been busy.

All the cardinals are so pretty, but I think I like the salt and peppers the best! Congrats to your giveaway winners.

Hi Linda! I miss you too! and I do love blogging and will not stop. I think sometimes at least in my case I have to step back from it for a little bit. I sometimes don't know what to write about or what to take pictures of. Especially this time of year. But I know I definitely will not stop-I would miss you all too much!
