I advertised on craigslist for vacuum seal-a-meal - and got a response from a lady who was moving. I got to her house and she had ROOMS full of stuff for sale - but I only had a few minutes. I got some really cool sorting bins for the toy/guest room, a bright colored set of rolling drawers for the grandsons' art projects and supplies - and these Geese!
I couldn't belive it when I saw them - sitting there just waiting for me - and I think they were as happy to see me as I was to see them. I knew just where they would go in the kitchen.Here they are - hung in the kitchen near the window over the sink - ready to begin work . . .
And here they are - hard at work. The towel in the front is one I won in my lovely packet from Leanne - at Somerset Seasons - one of my favorite blogs. Stop over and visit - she'll have words of wisdom and some great photos.
Aren't they just the grandest thing you've ever seen in a kitchen - well besides a good chicken pot pie or a batch of home made bread.
While I'm at it - I'll show you the Bunny Easter House Basket - all done and ready for Easter.
A side view - with the chimney - which is hollow. Ben stores the tiny little Easter eggs in the chimney.
Here is the lighthouse tissue box cover I made for my cousin's birthday - the lighthouse is attached to the front - giving it a 3-D look. I really like this!!!
And more lovelies I picked up at Goodwill today - along with just the right shade of off white yarn that I needed for the Troll House project. I'd show you the finished Troll House but Ben took it home with him for the weekend. It will be back next week.This set - a candle holder on the right and a ring holder on the left - have the prettiest violets on them, I can almost smell them, they are so sweet.
And what wonderful treasure have you found at a thrift shop lately?
