second time around tuesday

Go on over to Dianes for more 2nd time around postings.



second time around tuesday

Three or More Tuesday

Three or More Tuesday
And Tam's at Gypsy Corner

for more 3 or more posts.



These are 4 candle sticks I got his weekend.
They are wood.
I think they would look great painted gloss black!!
Maybe I'll make a candle lamp out of one.
They are pretty tall though.
(tallest almost 2')
There is also a jar of whitish rocks i will use in my display.
And some shells to put in jars for the store.

And

What's this you say?

It's another 3 or more Tuesday.

I got this baggy of little white ceramic 'things' this weekend.
Can you guess what they are?

Can you tell what they are now?

OK, you can quit guessing.
They are little ceramic birds.
Two piece, so they can hold the tiniest treasure inside.
And this is the price they had on them.

They are only about 1 1/2" long!
(i said tiniest treasure!)
Aren't they cute??
That whole baggy of them for $1.00!
Seven sets, and two bottoms.
Hmm, what can i use those two bottoms for?


And don't shoot me,
but I'm thinking of spraying some flat white,
and antiquing them.
Then the detail would show up better.
What do you think?

Barbara are you sure these little birdies aren't egg cups? they appear to hold the perfect size of an egg for a place setting at a table. :)

I think those little birdies are the cutest things, and I'm so timid I'd never do a thing to them but look at them and admire them. Happy 2nd Time Around.

Barbara Jean,

I am sorry for being so late in getting around, but here I am!!

I like the wood candlesticks. I am a pastel girl myself. If they were mine I would use muted pastels and chip and knick the paint. But of course, you need to consider the decor of your house.

The birdies are cute. And I love your idea of antiquing them. Have fun with them! You got a great deal!!

Happy TOMT!!

xoxo
