I paid a quick visit to the thrift store and found some lovely things. This ceramic Christmas birdhouse has been put away in the Christmas cupboard awaiting next December. I must remember to be careful when I pick it up because the base isn't attached.
A number of pretty things were .50, among them this very heavy tray or maybe it's a dish for appetizers. I tried to find an easel to hold it at an angle but it's so heavy it tipped them all.
So I leaned it under the window, behind the sink where it can't fall over. I rather like it there.
Here it is from a little farther away.
These cute bowls are very different from what I ordinarily would pick but I love red and black and they were .25.
The orange is only there to show how small the bowls are.
That's enough treasures. Here is my latest arrangement on my old sewing machine. Sort of moving towards a Valentine theme, I guess.
In the living room I have had three candles on a green runner on the coffee table for ages. It was time to change it a bit. I think this looks like Spring, don't you? The ceramic birdhouse was a gift from my daughter.
I am so not into doing crafts ( mainly because they never turn out) but I did try making these hearts from discarded book pages. They were meant to hang but I prefer them flat.
It's my turn to cook tonight. There's a ham in the oven for the carnivores. I know how the grands look forward to fresh cheese buns. I ran out of cheese so in the back there's a long French bread made of the same dough. One bun got rather long too as you can see. More like a mini loaf.
That was my day. I wonder what everyone else did? Whatever it was I hope it went well.
Thanks for visiting, Granny M.
