I'm Seeing Red

I'm seeing red-not because I'm mad at anyone or anything like that! I have been seeing a lot of red leaves appearing all of a sudden as they do in fall in NH. So it was time to change this. Time for a new color theme. I had some of these red kitchen items and I bought some of them when I was in Maine this summer.
The hens came from my Aunt's farm.
And then there's my Fire King collection along with this odd bottle of crushed red pepper flakes.
The red pepper flakes have a story. This bottle came from my Mom's house. I don't know how old they are but if they had a price on them it would probably be $.05. Somehow my sister ended up with them. When she was downsizing and moving this past winter she didn't have the heart to throw them out but didn't want them cluttering up her kitchen anymore so I ended up with them. So here they are as part of the red theme. I think they look kind of cute. Whatever you do, don't put them on any food!

  1. I bet those pepper flakes would be pretty potent by now!
    You have such cute things in your kitchen. I've been collecting red-handled kitchen things for just a short time now. I wonder what decade they come from?
    And I love the hens!

I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
