I hit a couple of yard sales last week, but since it was Easter week, there really weren’t too many of them. But I did manage to find something that caught my eye….
Did you spot it? It’s right up there on the top shelf of my kitchen hutch….. Keep your eyes “moo”-ving…..
Here she is. The latest acquisition to my collection of “whites” is this bovine butter dish! I’d been having a really crummy day trying to find things and was on my way home when I decided to stop at an unadvertised sale a block away from last stop I had just made. The homeowner had multiple tables of over-priced stuff that I had no interest in, and I was actually hurrying my way out of the overcrowded garage when I spotted this beauty. Did I mention that I was anxious to pay for a bag of wine corks and was actually trying to get out of the heavy haze of the woman’s cigarette smoke? Eeewww…. I’m not used to being around smokers!
I shot her a $5.00 price for the two items and she readily accepted it. Woo Hoo! I left for home, vowing to soak this cow in hot water and bleach- poor thing had come from a smoking home, after all. After a nice Clorox bath, I put her in with a regular dishwasher load. She came out sparkling clean and disinfected and ready for her new home on the hutch.
Isn’t that face just as sweet as it can be?
First thing this morning I removed all of my Easter decorations from the hutch, so now it’s back to normal. I think Bessie the Bovine fits in quite well, don’t you?
Here’s to better thrift shopping this coming week!
