What do I do on a day off?
I saw a recipe for crockpot chicken soup on Tatertots and Jello's blog.
It's in my crockpot right now. The recipe is here. I will be serving it with French bread, and happy tomorrow when I am at work that there is leftover chicken soup in the fridge to heat up after work!
I purchased a vintage aluminum campfire or wood stove griddle yesterday on my lunch hour for $4.
Here it is behind the coffee pots.
I washed it up today and stuck it in behind the coffeepots on my kitchen corner built in.
I bought this little bisque bunny figurine yesterday thrifting for $1.
I picked up his little friend on the left today for another $1.
The plan is these little bunnies are going to become "faux" chocolate bunnies. Stay tuned for a progress report on my bunnies.
Last April I purchased this wood double sided dartboard at a rummage sale for $5. It was made in England. After researching it on the internet, I believe it is from the 1960's. I planned to keep it for my den, but in a weak moment of being overwhelmed by my collections, I took it to my friend's occasional (open one day per week) craft and antique shop to sell. Luckily for me it did not sell, and last Saturday I took it back home.
So today I am rubbing a little stain on it and adding a couple coats of poly. Look for this in to posts to come.
I also washed up this Hiawatha vintage thermos I purchased the end of last week while thrifting. I love old thermoses, especially red ones. Again, this little gem will be in upcoming posts.
Then as a follow up to my post on Sunday "Welcome to Northern Minnesota", here is eight more inches of snow since Sunday. This is our mailbox across the street.
My house from the street. I have been asked if this is typical. Well it can be. The last couple winters have been milder with a foot or less of snow.
The snowbank between my house and my neighbor's house.
Just a day in the life of a blogger from Northern Minnesota!
