My mom and oldest sister embroidered this beautiful tablecloth for me for Christmas. I did not want to use it , until I had repaint my dining room. I finally repaint and now I am able to use my beautiful table cloth.
So fun, so innovative...$3.00 project. Don't ya' just love it when you find some old vintage wares around your house that you can repurpose? I am all about thinkin outside the box with
what I can do with a plain, simple item. I'm sure that thousands of other folks in Fishersville, VA saw this as a simple masher, but I saw it as something different, and for $3.00, I couldn't resist! Seriously, this project only cost us $3.00, as I had the clothes pin, the homespun and, of course, a gazillion pictures of Miss Cutie Pie (aka Bella).
So, with a potato masher that is 9" in height, and about 2.5" in in depth, as our kitchen window is narrow, coupled with a piece of homespun that I frayed the ends, wood glue and an old clothes pin, here's what makes washing dishes much more enjoyable these days.
After we take our holiday tree down, we set it outside for all the critters that come to visit our yard. When we went to take it down a few days ago, we found a mama bird sitting on her nest. I got my first shot of her today---can't wait until there are some peeping babies!
