I think these little cupboard hanger/pinkeeps are my new addiction. I enjoy making them and just love how they turn out. It is good busy work while waiting on kids.
Yesterday I decided to go to a local antique store. I was really on the lookout for a 20 gallon crock. I have one in our kitchen that is turned upside down for a table, but I would like one to use as a clothes hamper. Ours is about shot and I just can 't bring myself to pay what they want for them. Most of them are not very prim looking or large enough for a family of 5. Anyway....I did see a 15 gallon one that was way out of my range. It can have cracks for what I am needing it for. I guess I will have to keep looking. There were several things that caught my eye. Actually, I think I could have spent over $500 in the first booth alone. I just kept walking. My first treasures were these little tin cookie cutters. They were in two different booths and kind of hidden away. It's strange that I even found them. Must have been my prim ESP calling me to them!! Won't they be perfect for Easter decorating??!
I did see a really cute tin pitcher that I was thinking about. I could just see it displaying fresh flowers. I had to change my mind though when I came across my next treasure. (Maybe next time!!) I have been admiring all of your pics that show one of these and have wanted one for a long time. It's a good thing no one was close to me when I saw it cuz I probably would have knocked them over trying to get it. It was only $22. I thought that was pretty good. So now all I have to do is find a spot for it.
I have finished a couple of bunnies,dolls, and an Easter garland that I will be listing on my selling blog. Stop by to check them out. Here is a peek at Mrs. Hops. I have her in two different dresses.
Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.
