A Little Junking and A Little Puttering
Two days off and 3 good night sleeps plus two naps and I feel so much better! It is amazing what a little rest can do for the outlook. Yes, I did a little junking last week because it is what I do. I took some pictures of the whole pile, like always, but they turned out wonky and I didn't check until after I put everything away. You get the bits and pieces in this post.
I adore the cover on this old book. I don't know much about books so I just buy the ones with pretty covers - LOL! The vase is McCoy and will be staying with me for a while.
A big BIG spool of avocado green fringe because everyone needs one of those plus a new aluminum tray for my collection.
I found a bundle of these grapevine stars at The Bins a while back and thought they would look good in my pergola. I hung them up yesterday. Puttering. Hopefully the squirrels don't steal them like they did with the prayer flags. No, I wasn't tipping over when I took this picture.
I had one of those totally politically incorrect Indian babies when I was a little girl only mine was made even worse by a little leather loincloth and a feather headdress.
A neat old 70s cake carrier. Funny how styles and come and go and those colors are back.
My whisk broom collection has grown to five so I hung them up. More puttering.
Well, I said I bought 3 chair legs and I wasn't joking. I will probably sell two because many vintage easy chairs only have fancy legs on the front. When you turn the other one upside down it looks like it could be a stand for something. I'm sure Betsy would have an idea!
Have you been noticing that vintage Santa and the Putz? They seem to be photo-bombing this post. These illustrations are from an old copy of The Lost Princess of OZ. The binding was completely missing and many of the pages were colored on but I managed to salvage the color illustration. The rag doll is C.R.E.E.P.Y.
I just heard a segment on the news about coloring books for grown-ups. Have any of you tried those? Sounds fun and I need yet ANOTHER thing to do - LOL!
