A Couple Of Finds AND A GIVE AWAY!

I found this large bean pot or cookie jar.

I have a pie plate that I got from longerberger baskets that
matches what is on the bottom of the pot. It was very dirty and covered
in paint splatter. I cleaned it up but it still has paint.
I like the the simplicity of it.

I also picked up a couple of books all of this from a thrift store.
so I will put my feet up and watch the debate tonight while thumbing through my books.

Now on to the give away! I will repost a picture when I can get outside
these are two wooden chargers great for putting on the wall or to make your
table pretty, There is also a spiced pumpkin candle, and a packet of recipe booklets
from during and just after the depression.
Here is a little display of them. The egg one should come in handy for all of you with chickens, there is one for left overs, cranberries, etc it is a great fun assortment.

Now the rules I would love for you to be a follower, Just leave a comment
on this post I will draw a winner One week from today Oct 18th.
I will post more pictures when it is nice and sunny out and I can get a good picture. (Click on the picture for a bigger view.)
There also could be a few surprises included.
Good Luck!
Welcome to my new follower
and to all of the people who thought the queen was funny thank you.
Now I don't feel like such a fool even though she still makes me laugh.

Good job at the Thrift Store! That's my specialty. The covered pottery would be a nice container for coffee and would look nice on the kitchen counter by your coffee pot.

What a great pot, it would certainly have come home with me too Cathy!
The books look great, and I'm a sucker for a good book.
What a glorious giveaway - I will pass the parcel however, as the postage to the UK would be
astronomical :o(
Wishing everyone else good luck though.
Have a great weekend.
