Red Wednesday/Don't forget my Giveaway!

I've been more or less following Red Wed-nesday hosted by Sue at It's A Very Cherry World for a few weeks. Every week I think that I'm going to join in and then I get lazy. Well today's the day!

I have something red in almost every room in my home. I found this little basket in it's original brown wicker at Goodwill for pennies. I like the shape of it and how the handle is low. When I redecorated this bathroom at the end of the summer around the toile shower curtain that a friend gave me (thank you Cheryl!), I knew that red was the obvious choice to add a little punch to the black/white/tan mix.

For those of you new to my blog, I'm doing a giveaway that closes Friday, October 23rd to celebrate the opening of my Etsy shop. Click here to go to my original giveaway post and enter!

Thank you Sue for hosting all the red fun!
Hugs, Leslie

What a cute little basket....and my bathroom is red also, that would fit right in.

You gave me an idea, I am going to check my baskets and make up a baskets for friends when they get a cold or the flu. I will put in the tissues, maybe a can of chicken soup, some tea..... who knows what will go in it.

Happy Rednesday!
