Sister Hanna here! It has been way too long, I apologize. I've been lucky enough to be with Erica two weeks in a row. It was great, but also really tiring. It's a 3 1/2 hour drive to see Sister and after teaching all week, it's even harder. I hate to say it, but I am thankful that I will get a weekend at home this week so I can finally put away all my treasures. Plus, I get to see Sister in Vegas in less than a month, so I have something to look forward to!
There has been a definite theme to what I've been purchasing lately and that is animals. I am an outdoor girl and studied fisheries and wildlife science in college, which I use as my excuse for this animal menagerie I've acquired. I also try to stick to birds, deer, and squirrels, with a random donkey here and there. Yes, sometimes I stray, but how can a girl resist.
First off, at the antique festival in Coburg 2 weekends ago I was on a mission to find some bookends. These beauties are solid wood and now are propping up my favorite bird and flower books on one of my end tables. I don't know anything about them, but am exicted to do a little research.
I also picked up some salt and pepper shakers to keep me company in the window sill in the kitchen. I was most excited about my Shawnee owls that Sister got me. I've been dragging me feet on purchasing these little guys for a while and now they wink at me while I'm cooking; it's too cute.
At Pick-a-Dilly this Sunday I picked up a few little deer that I knew needed to move in with me. The tiny guy is new, but I already had his mom.
And, how could I resist this dopey guy?
Last, but not least my Sister in Law got me these adorable measuring cups for my birthday. I love that they stack into a tree, it's so clever! Although they aren't vintage, I'm totally in love with them and they look just like me. She is really good at finding me prizes that fit my taste!
Well, I must be off to the life of a school teacher (lots of grading and maybe a glass of wine.) I think I will link up with Sir Thrift-A-Lot too!
Until Next Time!
