Still winter

It's still winter in North Dakota, very pretty

It has also warmed up some. People have actually started shucking their heavy coats. Basically just jacket weather here now after's above 0.

Out and about yesterday found this treasure. I thought it lovely. It is a heavy metal tray marked as China Woods, made in England. I don't know why but I have had kind of a fascination with these metal trays recently. They come very reasonably priced used and some are pretty creative. This one was $1.00.

This is what it looks like semi dressed up.

Also found Felicity Fieldmouse. She was priced at $1.75, but 75% off. For you math whizzes this should be easy, me I just figure she was dirt cheap and so cute!

Well, listening to a little light music on my day off and blogging. Good day to relax, have a great day!

Blue chickens

Okay, back to blogging.

While out shopping at one of our favorite stores, granddaughter and I spotted this.

She said she just must have it for her flower shop.

I was not seeing it. I mean honestly, it is a group of blue chickens, paint in okay condition, but really. Do we NEED it?

She was adamant about it, YES WE NEEDED IT!!!!

I studied it and finally decided, okay fine. So I plopped down my $1.49 and bought it.

Brought it home and, HA, HA, HA, I absolutely love it!!! It calls out to me. It is shiny and smooth, you can dress up those chickens with "pearls." Granddaughter was right we really did need it. It brings a smile to my face every time I look at it. Hope it does the same for you!!!
