I can't believe tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent and somehow the beginning of the end of winter. Ash Wednesday brings so many good memories from my childhood, the food, the meaning of the season, My Familia. It is very hard to be far, far away from my love ones, but I try to find ways to cope with the loneliness, I am very grateful that I found the world of the blogs, it has been a blessing.
Here is my red contribution....
My office, it small but I adore it. It's the hallway leading to the upstairs bedrooms. It was plain white, I found the red wall paper in a second hand store, it's very 80's but it was perfect for this space. I found the little frame with the tulips in my neighborhood Salvation Army, there are some spots in the petals where the paint fell, but I like that way, it has character.
This is a family size bucket for pop corn, it comes with 3 small ones, I found it one day in my favorite thrifstore, when I was ready to pay for my finds I saw it on the counter, asked if it belonged to somebody else and of course the answer was no, so I took it.
My coffee mug, from My Boricua, who's is combat disable veteran and works for the VA Hospital, please pray for our Military and Veteran Men and Women.
My so favorite coat. I was dreaming of a Red Coat for the longest time, but they were expensive, one day at Sears all coats were 50% off, so I thought it was a good deal, to my surprise the register rang it for less than 50%, yeeeyy!! this Mami of 3 was very, very happy.
Happy Rednesday Everyone!!!
