I found something cute while I was cleaning out one of the kitchen cupboards the other day, looking for lost treasures. It's what I have to do, since I haven't found anything good at the thrift and antique stores in what seems like ages. Boy, if I had a dime for every time I've said that lately......Anyhow, I found this little gal in the cupboard. I vaguely remember buying her, I think last year. I put her up in the cupboard, fully intending to take her out when I decided where I wanted to display her. Well, you know how that goes!
I decided to find out a little bit about her. Meet Cissy Cabbage! Isn't she cute? Turns out she's a jam jar, made by Lefton. Trapped in a head of cabbage. She looks totally surprised at her predicament, doesn't she?
I also found these old teabag holders. I can't figure out the logic of putting them way up in that cabinet, but they're now in the silverware drawer, waiting to be put into teabag-holding action!
This kitty and chair S&P shaker set is a total mystery to me. I have no recollection of buying these. Could someone have broken in and left them for me?
I would like to wish one and all a Happy President's Day! Do you remember getting Lincoln's birthday off, and Washington's birthday, when you were a kid? Two holidays! Now we've got President's Day, which is neither Lincoln's or Washington's actual birthday. AND we get no mail. Well, I hope you have a great President's Day, no matter how you plan to observe it!
