REDnesday - Rika's Roadhouse

Today we visited Rika's Roadhouse in Delta Junction, Alaska.  This roadhouse was one of the original roadhouses (like an inn for travelers) on the Richardson Highway in Alaska.  The roadhouses were built about 20 miles apart - what a traveler could travel in one day's time. 

 I made this lovely mosaic of out the red flowers I found around the grounds.  I even included a vintage red tin filled with threads.

Petals of RED!

The museum had many vintage items displayed.  Here's a vintage embroidered tea towel with nice touches of red.

Isn't this a cute vintage red tin with white stars?  And look at those lovely thread colors.

Please join our host Sue at It's A Very Cherry World (here) for more REDnesday! 
  Thanks for visiting me!

  4. Wow! Fun reds from Alaska! The flowers are so gorgeous.

  5. Sandy I love the red/oranges in those flowers. I've not been there and you are getting so close now to the Kenai. Beautiful sunny day here in Homer. I just hate it this time of year when a fog or clouds come in and the visitors can't see our gorgeous view. I feel so bad for them. Take Care Nan

  6. I love your Reds, your Mosaics, your photos, your blog!
    Thanks for sharing with us
