Early Spring Robins?-
After our cold, torrential downpour all day yesterday we woke up to 28 degrees, blue skies and sun! I was outside about 9 and saw the most amazing thing- tons of Robins all over. Our yard, across the street and next door. I spotted these guys a bit later using our heated (thrifted of course) birdbath. WOW, does this seems early for robins?
An American Robin, smile for the camera!
Ground doves came by too
My bushy tail needed a drink too
the sun hitting our red twig dogwood, it was redder in real life
Finished Faux Planter-I went to Hobby Lobby today for the last of my supplies for my vintagey French crafts. I finished this with moss, lavender, yellow flowers, and a small white bird. Last week I added some brown glaze on both sides to make the paint look more aged-
My small crate, now filled with soaps in our main bathroom, I haven't decided what to put into my medium sized crate yet...
I went to Goodwill today to find some work clothes for spring. Wow did I score, again! I got 4 new tops and a denim jacket for work. I spied this wire basket and thought it was junk metal. It was heavy, and greasy, dirty and dusty. I flipped it over and saw a stamped name. I checked on my phone and it turned out to be a silver plated. For $5.00 I brought it home. After a simple scrubbing with hot water and dawn it looked like silver again! I found one on eBay for $25.00. I really like it and will use it somewhere, or gift it.
I didn't even polish it, just soap and water!
Painted concrete bird about 6" long, $2.00
A working, wire french clock with doors that open, $4.00. Not sure what I'll put inside?
Fun little bunny from Hobby Lobby, 1/2 price, for Spring
Also Spring-y, sheep from another thrift store, 99 cents each, new, and ceramic! They had Pier One stickers underneath for $10.00. I found the large one on Etsy (sold) for $29.00, can you believe it??? It's funny as I had wanted some ceramic sheep and rabbits, now I have both. Now if I only had some land and real ones, and goats!
Clearance pot for $3.00 filled with left-over flowers from my stash
It's A Small World After All-
I've done this little blog for several years now. When you have less than 100 "followers" you think not that many people read your blog. That can be deceiving! When I look at my stats above it shows most of my visitors are from the U.S., not a big surprise. Interesting where others visit this blog from, and it paints a very International picture! On the list below Russia and France came in too, fascinating! It just goes to show that you never know the impact you make even with small actions. I even have readers in Poland! So, hello out there to my International readers, leave some comments sometime and let me know where you're from!!!
