Whenever we go for a family reunion to Kentucky for Worker Bee's family, we always make time for a few small side trips for just OUR little family.
Well a couple of summers ago we took a day trip to Hodegenville, Kentucky, President Abraham Lincoln's birthplace.
They have a lovely monument there. It's a log cabin (not quite the original one, but still very old) enshrined in a marble and granite temple-like building. One of the neatest things was that it takes 56 steps to climb to the top, one step for every year of Lincoln's life.
While we were there I picked up this little plate. I started collecting these kind of plates on this trip.
For those of you with eagle eyes, the blue plate behind it is of the Hermitage, President Andrew Jackson's gorgeous plantation home in Tennessee. (Okay, does two make a collection? Well I'm planning for a bigger collection!)
Also for your Rednesday enjoyment is my table lamp with a lovely red shade. Picked up both of those at my Target a couple of years ago. Target always seems to have really cute, kind of trendy/Pottery Barnish lamps at very reasonable prices.
Happy Rednesday to you all!
I hope you enjoy seeing all the bright reds over with Sue at It's a Very Cherry World. Don't you find this is always such a cheery day?
