I am joining Leigh @ http://lbratina.blogspot.com/ for my first time. I have always wanted to do this since I love Thrifty fun!
Thrifty goodies....I found this great frame for .50 cents. Woohoo!!!! I also found the red shelf and vase for a couple dollars as well.
Next I cross stitched a kitchen motif with a cute little oven in it and then framed it with this frame.
It found its place on my favorite shelf in my kitchen next to a cute little framed piece that I won in a giveaway on http://cherrysjubileehome.blogspot.com/ If you've never been to her blog run don't walk...she has the cutest ideas, great projects and lovely home! The toile planter and black candlesticks (which I spray painted) are also thrifty finds.
Lastly, the little ceramic chicken is passed down from hubby's great grandmother.
Now the funny story!
She taught my hubby how to raise and take care of chickens. The beginning of his illustrious farming career. He wanted to know why the eggs weren't hatching, and why she brought them inside(they needed a rooster and there was no rooster to fertilize them). So she told him they needed to be fertilized. After she went inside, he got some fertilizer(for plants) out of the shed and shoveled some on. He said he might have made a big mess and that was the reason he got a 'spankin' and a 'talking to.' hahahaha
Thanks for visiting.
