Happy Things and Frog A La Fresco!





Hello everyone! I hope this finds you all doing well and having a great week!

The other day I had a little surprise in my mailbox which really made my day!! When I saw the outside of the envelope, I knew that there was something terrific inside!! ~~ On September 25th, Heather had a post for a giveaway. Heather makes beautiful jewelry and was giving away SIX pairs of her handmade earrings. The rules were to pick which one you liked the most and your name would be entered in the drawing. I really did not believe I would stand a chance to win being as so many other ladies liked the same pair I did. But, VOILA! - I won! The earrings have beautiful details in copper & the stones are perfect for fall! Heather, thank you so very much! I am going to wear them today! Green is my favorite color, too! ~~ Please check our Heather's blog and the items she has for sale. Her work is spectacular!!!!! Miss Rosie also wrote about her wonderful pair that she won, too!!

During the summer I stopped by my friend Kerri's shop, Remember When, and found this wonderful vintage "Hot Pot." I had to have it because of the little birds on the front. There is even the cutest little bluebird on the lid!! It is the sweetest little piece and still has the electric cord! I remember the old silver electric coffee pots, but never have seen one like this. Do any of you have a Whistlin' Hot Pot? Do share!!

The photo of the salad came via an email from a friend. This is food for thought....another reason I refuse to buy bagged greens....ewww!!!

I got that email too! So funny.
I remember when I went to college everyone had a hot pot. They weren't cute like that one though!
Can I make you a banner? I'll steal some photos off of your blog if you don't whip me...

Heidi said...

OH GROSS!!! I thought now why did you write that and went back to look at that photo. I cannot belive it. Was the frog still alive?

Congratulations on your give~away win. I won something just once and I really treasure it as it was handmade too. Enjoy yours earrings.

Love your earrings.....love my earrings....we are such lucky girls.

I use bagged greens all the time.....OMGOSH!

Sondra said...

At first glance I was wondering what the heck was so special about those greens, but after reading...YUCK! That is so gross!

Kate said...

That poor little frog. I wonder if it was still alive. I didn't see anything odd about the picture at first either.

Love those earrings! Lucky you.

OH I use to have a teapot just like yours. I lost the cord to it so I am not sure where the teapot is I may have sold it at a yard sale. Its funny because I have seen this teapot at the thirft store and almost bought it but it had no cord either. It is pretty just to sit out so next time I come across one I will snatch it up! have a wonderful day

What a super cute hot pot! Love that tiny little bird on the lid - so adorable!

So glad you like your prize! They are going to look lovely on you! :)

Poor frog :( Definitely gross but it makes me sad for the little frog too.

I so want to make that pumpkin recipe you posted. I only have one bread pan so I need to get another, but it just look sooo good!

I had to look several times to get the salad pic and EWWWWWW! We once had a huge locust in a can of greens! It was so disgusting!
