Well, if you have missed my blogging then I guess you could more or less say that “I am back”. My hubby went back to work today for meetings and a teacher workday on Friday. He officially starts on Monday with the students. So….. I will need to find something to do and blogging is one of those things that will help keep me busy. Of course I will also have laundry, cleaning, cooking and taking care of my little man until he starts pre-school at the end of the month. Wow, I will have all sorts of free time.
Do you remember my last post? Well, if you don’t then let me just tell you a little bit about it. I found this man on craigslist that was selling his very large collection of crocks. After checking him out, I made arrangements to go and see if there were any good crocks that I could pickup at a rather good price. Well, well, well there were tons of crocks to choose from and they were beautiful. You all know that I am on a rather tight budget since I am a stay at home Mom so I went with a few small crocks and a large one to start out with. Yep, I have more on reserve and will pick those up at a later date. Here are the ones that I picked up first.
I thought this cute little “salt” crock would be perfect in the kitchen. I won’t be using it for salt, but it does look very cute next to my stove.
I have several jug crocks, but I don’t have anything small so I picked this one up as well. Isn’t so cute?!?
This one is my favorite out of the bunch. I just love the colors in the glaze and the cobalt blue is what caught my eye. I absolutely love it!! What do you think of this beauty? Are you in love with it like I am?
Do you remember that scarecrow that I picked up at the Open House for North Shore Primitives? Well, as I promised….. here are some pictures of the one of a kind little guy that made my heart melt. I know that sounds weird, but when you see pictures of him….. you will see in his face that it literally looks like he could talk. I just love him!!
Here are some close-ups. Don’t forget that you can click on each picture to get a larger view. Gotta love all of the detail in this little scarecrow.
So, are you totally in love with him like I am? I just thought he was so cute. It was funny because I had several items in my hands and when I saw him, I put the other items down. He was enough for me. I just love that face!!
Alot of you have inquired about Qbert. Well, our little miniature schnauzer is doing great. It was a tough 10 days for him and for us, but he has recovered and back to his old self again. He had to wear this collar for 10 days and he hated it. I felt so bad for him, but it was best that he didn’t lick that incision from where he was neutered. So, we just kept him calm as possible and he did great…..well, for the most part. He would run into the doors, into our legs, drag that nasty collar on the cement patio in the back, run into the fence and well the list goes on. It was tough, but he is doing wonderfully. I have a few pictures to share with you. He needs to be trimmed so desperately right now, but he needs to wait just a little while longer. So….. just ignore his shaggy look right now (lol).
We bought a shovel, hoe and rake for Cameron this summer. Well, Qbert has decided that they are all for him. So, when we let him outside to go potty…. he thinks that he needs to carry around a shovel, a hoe or a rake. It is so funny!!
His favorite is the hoe. Normally he carries it and the handle is pointing straight up to the sky. It is so funny!! Oh, did I tell you that he also loves playing corn hole? We will throw the bags and he runs and gets them. It is hilarious. He will take them off the board and takes off. Here are a few more pics.
Last, but not least…….. I will leave you with a couple pictures of my little man. He is getting so big and literally brings me so much happiness!! I him to the moon and sunshine and back again!!!!
Until Next Time ~ Blessings Always!
