I know it's been a crazy amount of time since I last posted. Lots to do, lots going on, lots of excuses I could make... The one thing I can say is that I gave myself a blogging time-out until I had my swap things ready to send. The box is all packed and now I just have to write a little note to pop in, and I can get it in the mail on Wednesday. What a relief! I really stressed over whether my end of the swap is good enough. Does anyone else out there have that problem?
I noticed that Misi's Tuesday display chain is newly acquired so I thought I'd join in for the first time and share a few new-to-me treasures.
|Big sale at the "Gigglin Pig" - Yes, that's the real name of the store. |
I "needed" this lantern...
|I bought this wreath when I bought the lantern above. |
It was around the base of the lantern, and now I can't get it back on there.
Will deal with that later....
|My husband found this fragile little nest in my Dad's driveway.|
So I found the little bird to put in it.
Makes me smile every time I look at it on my kitchen windowsill.
|I bought this little broken tin bird cookie cutter last weekend for $2.00.|
I just really liked it...
|My new breadbox - just what I've been searching for |
so I can hide my tissue box and some daily medicines.
|I found this at a little store that I can't wait to go back to visit soon. |
There were many, many treasures to be found in that place.
I'm going to see if they'll let me take some pictures next time I go.
|I have wanted an egg basket for a long time. |
This one was half price when I got to the register - just under $8.00!
|Just got my little chicken coop thingy last week, too. |
I am not actually a big stuffed animal person, but I like these three for Spring.
|Found him in the local pharmacy gift nook. |
I like wood things that look like they might have been run over in the driveway a few times.
|Found the middle sized egg several weeks ago on my birthday. |
Went back to the same place and picked up the large and small ones a week later.
I have no idea why I wanted the set, but I am going to hang them together in my kitchen.
|I found this little "tobacco slats" box (that's what the tag said on it) at an antique shop in Angelica, NY. |
The owner of the booth was going out of business so I got it for half price - score!
|My husband thought he could help me make an arrangement for my new treasure. |
I'm thinking he'll need to keep his day job until he gets a little more experience....
