How doth the little busy bee improve each shining hour, and gather honey all the day from every opening flower!

Wee Bit of Fun

This is a wooden bowl on my kitchen table.
Shamrocks and a butter paddle!
Tomorrow is March 1st! Why not have a WEE bit of St. Patty's Day fun by doing some REdecorating? :)

I do small touches throughout the house. Just replace the salt doughs you had in your old pie plates for Valentine's Day with new green shamrocks, put a new display on your kitchen table, or change out a seasonal tree. Even a little heart cookie cutter that was out in February can be replaced with a vintage Shamrock cutter.

Sink and stove boards are some of the easiest ways to change out decorations for the holidays!

Don't have any Shamrock's? No sweat! Just put your best green forward! Green handled rolling pins (like the one on my stove board), green handled cutters, a green birdhouse, or a picture frame. Even a green scale or sifter can come to the front of any display and make your home a WEE bit cheerier! ;)

So, what are your waiting for....GET BUSY....and find your inner Leprechaun. :)

Wood & Rust!!!

Wood & Rust are ALWAYS in style for me! No matter what time of year, my eye is drawn to the items that have been worn down with rust, the old wooden items that have cracked and aged with time, or both (even better)...those items that are a mixture of wood AND rust!!!! :)

My chopper collection!

These next few pictures represent some of the rusty items that I scales. I have several scales now but shown here are a favorite green one and a picture of my HUGE scale next to a regular sized one. I ALWAYS search for the ALL metal, super rusty scales. :)

Rusty candle mold.....

Next, are wooden items.....I seek out the ones that have cracks, and a worn out look. Lots of patina. I love mashers and wooden spoons!!

Slaw cutters, choppers, old grain scoops and sifters are a fantastic way to mix your love of wood AND rust!!


So, GET BUSY.....and find your rusty worn out treasure!!! :)
