My New Favorite Feed Sack

Hello Friends!

I just had to share with you the absolute most adorable feed sack that I came across recently.

It's my new fav.The colors are faded and the little goldfinch still has a faint yellow to him and the thistle he's perched upon is still a bit lavender.

As soon as I saw it I knew I had to get it.

It was a bit more than I usually spend on a feed sack so I had to justify it by telling myself that I have never seen one like this {EVER} and if I didn't get it I would think about it for the rest of my life. Sooooo I went ahead and bought it and instead of Panera for lunch, I happily noshed on a $2.00 Deal Meal at Taco Bell!

Memory Lane...........

I went stolling thru some old photos in the computer today and snagged a few to show as some of my favorites from the past! All these great pieces have since found homes and well......I miss um all just a bit!This stand was super hard to let go but you can't pass up an insane off from someone who reallllllly wanted it bad! I'll probably never find another!
signs....always cool in there unique one of a kind way...

this sign is in a fish camp over the salad bar!

CHIPPY TO THE MAX! The blue on this one was killer....

The sterilizer lasted like 2 minutes in the booth. I should have known better...I still have a a perfect spot for it in my master bathroom.

Have a great day!!
