Fun Finds

I have a few FUN FINDS to share with you today.

The first of which is the rustic twig baskets.  Isn't it lovely?

I can't wait to use it on my sun porch this summer filled with pretty flowers.
Right now I plopped a fern that I've somehow been able to keep alive all winter into it.  I normally have such bad luck with house plants, so of course I am thrilled that it's looking . . . well . . . alive!

This next find took me by complete surprise.
Typically I'm not a duck person but when I say this little guy I was smitten.

He's so tiny and I love all the realistic details to him.
I figured I'd be able to find a place for him somewhere.

And finally, I was so excited about this find.
A vintage cookbook.
I have a small collection of maybe three books and I love each and every one of them.

I love how thick the book is and it's fun tabs too!  
It's simply filled with wonderful idea's.
Printed back in 1940, I've been giggling over some of the recipes listed, however intrigued at the same time.

I have a few recipes I can't wait to try.  
I'll be sure to share them if they turn out as wonderful as I am hoping they will.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you again next week.

Bye now,
