Depression Glass

 Depression glass.
Three darling little plates, one pitcher, two cups, and a small cream pitcher.
Found them all at a yard sale.
 I just couldn't pass them up.
The lady told me that they once belonged to her grandmother, and she was torn about selling them, but she really didn't have room to display them, or store them anymore.
I'm not certain if they are truly Depression glass, or if they are reproductions... either way, they are so darling.  And, the price was right.
I just had to buy them.
 She also sold me this egg basket.
Love the red color, and even though, we will probably never have enough eggs to fill it, we are certainly going to put it out in the coop and enjoy it!
 Old milk bottles.
Another yard sale find.
As were the ceramic eggs, and the cheese tin.
 My butterfly house.
Spencer made this for me, quite a few years ago.
It needed a paint job, and then he will get it installed on the pole, and placed in the flower bed.
I am painting it golden yellow, with a brick red roof.
I wonder if butterflies like yellow and red.
 Another old cupboard door project.
I just wanted to make a 'Welcome" sign to hang on the porch.
I made it so that I can change out the little wreath to match the season.

Jack O' Lantern.
Little ceramic pumpkin pot.
He was a yard sale find too.
He has such a quizzical expression on his face.
Worry? Humor?
I'm not certain.
But, he's cute!

I am getting a lot of my project and organization list done.
Slowly, but surely.
I have taken time out for fun.
 Yard sales. Shopping trips. Rides in the mountains.
Balancing out the work with the fun.


Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm grateful for a gardening friend gifting me with dozens of chive plants.
We will plant them under our apple trees. It is said that they will keep deer away. So far, we have found that it works really well.
~I'm grateful for an up-coming luncheon with some women friends . Old friends and new friends.
~I'm grateful my rice bags... yep... they help me feel pretty toasty on these cold mornings.  I think it may be time to take the cooler out, and store it until next summer.

You are so creative, I love how you used that cupboard door . . . it adds so much extra charm to your wreath. What a fantastic idea!!! I am so happy that you shared this.

  12. Hello Kerin, Gosh you have done well at the yard sale. I definitely think your Jack O'Lantern has a worried look on his face.... he's thinking.....oh no what now! I have never seen a butterfly house before, can I ask how high is it placed on the pole. I shall have to search for one as I was so excited by the butterfly in my garden it would be lovely to invite more into the garden. Best Wishes Daphne

  27. I think the pumpkin is afraid the Welcome sign will outshine him. So cute. I love your finds and the butterfly house is so cute. Surely they will love the red and yellow.

    What great finds!! I love Depression Glass, such a pretty color! I wish I could see your yard with the butterfly house all painted and done up . . . adorable! I like the pumpkin too, he looks kind of shy to me! And of course, there's nothing cuter than a berry wreath, just love it!

  31. KERIN!!! It's always so good to see your name pop up at the shop. I've gotten into a routine with visits and only do a few, really, but sometimes I lose track of where I've been or not until a cheerful bloggy friend stops by. :) I'm glad you did.
    LOVE all your finds, and my favorite is the milk bottle...so cute.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Wishing you a beautiful day.
    XOXO's,
    Marcia

  32. Awesome finds you came across! I do believe your green dishes are depression era. My Husband has some from his grandmother and it looks just like it - same color too.

It means so much to me, that you've taken a few minutes in your day, to stop by and visit.
I love getting to know you, and having our "chats".
Have a wonderful day.
