Garage Sale Find and Corn Niblets

Hello everyone. Hope you are having a great day.  The temps have cooled down a bit and the windows are open!!!  We are getting closer with the remodel being done. The new doors are all done and just need to be hung along with the "new" old floorboard and trim.  I'm getting antsy, because the house is in disarray and nothing is being done.  Hopefully next week.  I guess I can look at it this way.....I don't have too much to clean when there is nothing sitting out!!

I wanted to show you what I found at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago.  They sell antiques and have one every year.  It's the same place I let the "perfect" cupboard go because I had to go home and think about it.  Dumb.......I know!!  This is a doll case with missing glass.  I like it better that way.  I know I'm raising my girls right when one said how neat a crock would look in it!!  I just brought it home, cleaned it a bit and put a coat of tung oil on it.  The tung oil changed it completely and I love it more than before. 

I have added a new offering to my selling blog.  It is a set of beeswax corn cob niblet bowl fillers.  Stop on over and check them out if you get time. They will look great in your fall displays.

I really need to go and get something accomplised today. It's been one of those ADD days. Maybe after the kids go to school next week, things will get more "normal".  Whatever that might be.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.



  1. Well, she was right. The crock looks great in there. You made a great deal.

  2. I love your display of the crock, it looks prim perfect!

  3. I love the display case, looks like it was made for the crock of sweet annie. You are raising your kids in prim style. 8-)

  4. I love the look, what a good find. You just got to love garage sales. I wish it was getting cooler here in NC.

  5. Too cute, I love that your daughter thought of the crock! And she was right. It looks great!

  6. You've raised your daughters well... the crock looks great in there! Your corn niblets are cute too. Are they real corn or all wax. I'm off to check out your selling blog to see.
