So what to do with an old planter?


I added a flower, buttons and

some pretty pins to it.  I made a pin cushion.

The Calm Before The Storm

Yesterday morning they were predicting another snow storm starting later in the day continuing into today and I thought I'd snap a picture of the calm before

today's storm! 

What can I say?  Here we go round two!  Stay warm and I'll be cooking up another batch of hot soup today.  ~amy

Impulsive Buying

I'll be linking to Vintage Thingy Thursday hosted by Suzanne at Colorado Lady.

While walking with my friend Joan last year...we stopped by a store that sold antique lamps and chandeliers.  I saw these miniture oil lamps and thought they were SO cute and I impulsively bought them. that I have them I really don't know what to do with them.  I hate when that happens!  See how I have them bunched up in a group off to the side on the bottom shelf of my cabinet?  They range in size from just under 5" to 8" tall.  I'm assuming they were originally used for night lights?  If anyone has an idea of what they were used for I'd love to know?  Any ideas how I can display them?
