Cute Cookie Jars

I love these guys! I got the McCoy kitty jar a long time ago at a yard sale for $1.25, and the adorable lamb jar for $6 at a thrift store.

Hubby's Newest Project

He has been working on this for a while, and just completed it, and I LOVE it! It is a Hoosier Cabinet, from around the 1930's, and we bought it at an antique store about a year ago. It was in need of some work at the time, so hubby sanded it down, repaired any wood that needed it, then repainted it a glossy buttercream color. The picture does not show it's color that well, the bottom of the cabinet looks too pale in the pic. He put new red ceramic knobs on all the doors and drawers, and lined the inner part of the cabinet with red check gingham that we bought on Ebay.

We moved it into the kitchen and it looks great in the spot I chose for it. We painted the kitchen a light shade of jadeite green (of course I have a collection of Jadeite too :) and the colors work perfectly together. This cabinet is so useful, I can't wait to fill it up with all my knick knacks and doo dads!

I LOVE Yard Sales!!!

Well I just happened to come across a yard sale on Sunday, and even though we were on the way out to eat, I just HAD to stop. My hubby will do anything to distract me away from yard sale signs, but this one I was going to! Heck, there have not been many lately because it has been so cold, but this past weekend it hit the mid-60's, and spring was in the air.

So a junkin' I did go, and glad I am that I spotted a few really neat items. First I found one of those cool old Jefferson Mystery clocks, and it works great - just have to clean it up a bit. A pic of it is above.

I also found a really beautiful filigree choker necklace, a pair of little ceramic owls, a pair of adorable pewter penguin candleholders, and my favorite item, a gorgeous pink Cherry Blossom Depression glass footed bowl - woo hoo!!! I only paid $5 for all of it, and I will clean up the goodies and take them out to the antique store tomorrow.

I can never get enough of garage and yard sale-ing!

Pixies, Pixies Everywhere!

My favorite (well, ONE of my favorite) things to collect are these darling little ceramic Pixies from the 50's. I started out with a few, and thanks to thrifting and Ebay, now they are everywhere. I have Treasure Craft, Gilner, Pixie Potters, and many more. They make me happy just looking at their sweet faces :)
