My Goodwill hunting this week didn’t net a lot of finds, but I do love what I got! First, I found this faux lavender topiary for $7.50…a little more than I like to pay, but its obvious frenchiness won me over! Doesn’t it just look like a little bit of Provence?
And look at the wonderful faux moss on the pot, too! The blooms look so real that the sales clerk checked to see if they had that lovely lavender fragrance! lol I think you might see what’s coming next…
…but I am saving that job for our lovely co-hostess Kitty! She is excited to have a chance to fill in for Baby Kitty, who is otherwise occupied, as you will soon see!
She wants to show you our bargain of the week…this set of French cheese plates for only $2.82! Woo hoo!
I love the colors and the little frenchy designs…especially l’agneau dansant…the dancing lamb!
Another recent flea market find is Mister Mouse, who became the star of the little vignette on my media cabinet. If you have known me very long, you know that all you have to do is put clothes on a mouse and I will buy it! lol He looks like he just stepped out of the pages of my favorite childhood book, The Wind in the Willows. I like the change he adds to this area! You might also notive a HUGE change if you remember that not too long ago, this was the spot for the world's oldest working console television...then the world's smallest television! Now I have a flat screen like the rest of the modern world! lol
And now for an update on the corks that I placed around my transplanted faux olive tree…the staff hasn’t really bothered them very much…so far.
Hey! Wait a minute, Isabella! What are you trying to hide?
Hmmm…it appears that she has chosen one of the corks as her toy and added it to the staff’s toy basket! lol No kidding…I saw her do it! She fished a cork out of the planter and was playing with it when she saw me coming toward her. So...she picked it up in her mouth, ran to the basket and dropped it in! I guess this one is now officially a kitty toy! Smart girl, huh?
As for Baby Kitty…he is preoccupied by our new backyard neighbor...a baby bunny! It seems that there will be no outdoor romps for the staff for a while! Perhaps our co-host will be ready to return to his duties next week. Until then, thanks for stopping by!
