"Cockadoodle Do, Everyone!"
I have had smashing lucky lately finding rooster/chicken goodies.
I wanted to share these finds with you earlier,
but my photo editing software went kaput on me.
I downloaded Picasa 3, free from Google and I am back in business...
I was really doing a happy dance when I spotted this goodie at the thrift store.
This Fitz and Floyd pitcher was only $3.
Fellow shoppers were admiring it in my cart!
I think I need to explain about my favorite thrift store,
it is VERY tiny and on an Air Force Base.
It certainly isn't anything like a BIG CITY thrift store.
So many of you make comments that you wish you had a thrift store like mine, well you probably do! You just really have to go consistently, some weeks you will find a cart full of treasures, and then weeks will go by without so much as a book to bring home!
For me the fun is the thought there just might me a treasure waiting for me.
Who would have thought that I would find a pair of rooster prints?
They were $5 for the pair.
At first I was going to paint the frames black.
I've changed my mind since they go so well with my kitchen cabinet color.
I am going to by those 3M adhesive hooks and hanging them under the cabinets.
This I bought as a set, with a pitcher and two mugs.
It was $7 at an antique mall.
When my mom comes over to visit,
we love to treat ourselves to a cup of freshly brewed raspberry gourmet coffee!
I know it isn't an old set,
but it sure goes well with my red transferware collection.
I LOVE this!
I had a very hard time deciding where to put it.
The little basket is what I grab when I head out to the garden or out to gather eggs.
and this is Maggie...
Maggie is a stray dog that as rumor has it, been kicked out of her house.
She had been hanging out at the ball diamonds for about 4 weeks before coming home one night with us.
I couldn't take those sad eyes any longer...she was getting thinner and thinner and covered head to toe with ticks and fleas.
I gave her a good bath, took her to a wonderful vet here. He charges very little for his services, so that people can help rescue these orphans.
She has lived with us for 3 weeks, has put on a little bit of weight, and currenly sleeps with Lindsey. She is a doll and a really sweetie!
That being said...
we are trying to find her a home because she needs a fenced in yard. She has trouble doing her business while attached to a leash, and if we take her off the leash...she takes off. On one 100 degree day, we had to run through 2 fields to try to catch her before she ran out on our main road, speed limit 55 miles per hour. We only live a few feet from the road
So say a little prayer for Miss Maggie that we can find her a good and safe home where she can run and run...in a fenced in yard!
Thanks everyone for leaving a comment,
it is so wonderful to hear from you,
Thank you for choosing to follow me I have had great fun learning about you!
