Some Pretties

Today, since we had yet another snow day (poor us huh, wink wink)  I
decided to share with you some random pretties from our house..............


Isn't this fabric just so adorable?  Lady Lee would say it is "stinkin cute"
of course a totebag comes to mind.........

and this fabric............ What to do, what to do....
probably yet another totebag?

Aren't these vintage spice jars the cutest things?  My mother used so many fresh spices and herbs that she never bothered with these cuties that I'm sure she got for a wedding present, therefore I got to have them in my play kitchen.  Fortunately I didn't destroy or lose them as a child so I have them on my shelf now.  ;-)  please ignore the horrible paneling on the wall- it will disappear like magic some day.

My last pretty for the day.  Those are real Robins eggs in the nest, three precious ones.  We found them over the past couple of years after windy spring storms.  I just leave them alone in my china cabinet for several months and they dry up on the inside.  Miss V found the feathers last spring and we could not bear to toss them.  As a child I was told "A feather is a letter from a bird."  I have no idea where that little gem is from, but I think of it every time I find a feather.

You are right, both of those fabrics would make great totes!

I remember the Durkee cans from when I was growing up - 30 some odd years ago - that's awesome.

And agreed - cute totes coming out that fabric I bet.
