A quick post this morning as I have to head off to Manhattan, and a trip to Manhattan, even to simply watch a matinee and come back home again, involves a lot of time commuting. I don’t wish I lived in NYC, but at times like these, I miss being able to hop on the subway to get to my destination quickly.
I went to an antique store yesterday and decided to buy this little number. I have no idea what I’m going to do with it and have a wee bit of buyers remorse this morning, but only a wee bit.
Sewing machine drawers. I see them all the time and am never tempted to buy them. But this seller painted them this lovely shade of green and – the kicker – the drawer pulls are bunnies. I mean, come on! She had me at the bunnies.
They smell musty, so as soon as the weather cooperates, I’ll put them on the porch to air out a bit. In the meantime, I’ve put a little container of baking soda inside them.
Egg cups in the den. On the top row: an artist bunny painting his egg, Humpty Dumpty (with an egg from Prague as his crown). Second row: another Humpty Dumpty (the head is a salt shaker), a little cherub holding an egg, and a pig getting ready to dine on an egg. Bottom Row: My two Disney egg cups (they’re very hard to find) and a little cowboy. Plus little wooden ducks and a lamb.
I found the shelves several years ago in a little antique shop.
Okay. I’m off to take a shower.
