New addition to the family

This is our new baby! I was trying to box up my birds . . . and someone thought it looked like a cozy place to take a quick cat nap.

Red Handled Vintage Ice Cream Scoop with Bird

I found this wonderful old ice cream scoop, how cute would this be out on your picnic table?? This little black bird had to have a taste! I embellished the ice cream pin cushion with vintage lace and old black and red buttons. There are 3 red glittered pins adorning this pin cushion. I will be putting this one on Etsy.

Adorable salt & pepper shakers

So cute! They are little baby salt and pepper shakers they are only 3 inchs tall. I hand painted them soft green and blue, with a vine of pink roses and leaves.

Jamaican blue! Its the hip new color. Beautiful isn't it! I can feel the breeze though the air already! These are 6 inch high working wooden pepper grinder and salt shaker that I have hand painted. Where the two blues meet I have added glamorous pearly white glass seed beads to add a touch of pizazz! Great accessory for your dinning room table or kitchen.

Robins egg blue bowl and salt shaker with daisies

How sweet is this bowl and matching salt shaker. The bowl is for decoration. It would make a great candy dish. or a place to put your keys and change in. I use one for my paperclips on my desk...I go through a lot of paper clips. The salt shaker would be so nice to take to work for lunch, or to have for a tea party.
Please take a look at my ebay auction at : gstuff101
