Cake Server and Spring Cleaning

Inventory time.
That means we had to clean the garage at the store,
just to be able to count things!
What a mess!

Ever see so much stuff?

Bet you can guess what he is thinking. =0)
I just want you to know,
I would only let my closest friends see our place like this. =0)

On to fun stuff.

Three or more nests.
See how tiny two of them are?
Finished product coming soon.
(anyone got a tablespoon?) =)

A Second Time Around Talented Tuesday
great idea in the making.

Cake cover, and lazy Susan.

Heavy black metal base for something?

Hmmm. Good idea?

How about a great idea??
Painting the lazy Susan black. Gluing it on the base,
and Ta dah!!
One fancy, heavy duty, revolving cake server!

I'm joining in with these lovely bloggers today.

Thanks to our wonderful hostesses.

blessings to all!

Hello sweet lady...

Ohh...I must apologize at being so long to get by for a visit! It seems like the land of blog is getting larger and larger! Hehe! How have you been, dear lady? It looks like you will be up to your elbows with organizing for inventory...Oooh boy! So much fun, huh? Actually, I had fun looking through all of your photos and would just love to roll up my sleeves to get a good peek at all of those goodies! Well my dear, I wish you the best with all of that!

Oooh...what a grand idea! The black stand is just perfect for your cake cover and dish! Sounds like a plan, my friend!!!

Have a wonderful day, Darlin'!

Good Morning Barbara Jean!
I want to go shopping in your garage because I see lots of treasures inside!
I like your cake plate creations, very nice!


Pat @ My Tattered Elegance said...

Reminds me of my shed where I keep my things to work on. It's my treasure shed.
Those little bird nests are adorable. Are they real or did you make them?
And I love the idea of the cake plate turning on that black stand. GREAT IDEA!!!!!!
Hugs, Pat

Mess?? What Mess?

Victoria said...

Oh I love the nest tutorial and I saw your comment about putting a little nest in my new soapdish...what a great idea! You've totally inspired me to do that and I could put some little bird egg soaps in it! That is certainly going on my to-do list:)

we actually find several tiny nests like that every fall in and around our landscape. we have lots of hummingbirds come to our flowers. our neighbors have horses. apparently the hummers like to use horsehair for their nests. they are very delicate. the grandkids usually take them to school for show and tell. i may have to keep a couple for myself! LOL ★Linda
