Isn't he cute? He's made out of a pot/pan lid and the handle is used for his nose! I thought it was a pretty clever idea! If you don't have any lids that you can spare, you can find all sorts of them at dollar/thrift stores. He also looks cute tucked in a wreath!
I also want to share a few pictures of some goodies that I found at a couple of my favorite antique malls in Berlin and Walnut Creek (aka Amish country) yesterday. I can't believe the fantastic prices that I bought them for! I was so excited!!
I found this fabulous box at Walnut Creek Antique Mall (behind Rebecca's Bistro) for only $32.00!!! I saw two, similar in size, at a local antique shop....one was selling for $170.00 and the other one for $250.00! So I'm thinking I got a great bargain! (Don't tell me if I didn't! LOL)
I found these at Berlin Village Antique Mall. The 2 gallon jug had a price of $45.00 and the small crock was $24.00. When I went to check out, the girl said that they were 30% off!! So I got the jug for $31.50 and the crock for $16.80!! Woo Hoo!!!!
I have no idea where I'm going to put these things, but I'm sure I'll find a place somewhere and will share pics when I do!! lol
My hubby and I have been working on a couple of projects that I will share with you later. One is done (just trying to get a decent photo) and the other will, hopefully, get started soon! The second project is going to be made out of walnut and we had to go to a lumber mill and have the wood planed and cut to the widths and lengths that we need. After about a week and a half wait, we finally got to pick it up on Monday....just in time for my hubby to have to go to work to pour some concrete for a couple of his contractors! So when he gets those wrapped up, we'll be able to start on it!
I'll be back soon with a simple Valentines project and a recipe for an awesome pie that is so simple to make!
Until Next Time. . . . Kris
