Ice Tea anyone?

I went from one end of my town to the other today, stopping at every thrift and antique store!  It was a great Saturday!  All my loot has ended up on top of the fridge.  

 I have picked this english Moira Pottery pitcher up more than once at one of my antique stops.  Today the price was right!  I love the natural color and the fact that it says "iced tea" just reflects the ultimate south that I call home.
 Here you can see more of the things I have on top of the fridge.  The scale was purchased last summer.
 The second treasure I picked up today was the old cutting board.  The size and patina was nice.  I thought it looked a lot like some I've seen in PB as cheese boards.
 The plant needs watering!
 The little "chippy" stool was the last special prize of the day.  The size was perfect for lots of places around the house.  I love the way it can add just a little lift to highlight objects.  The old milk bottle peeking there behind the stool was a gift from my mom at Christmas.
 If you are looking for a cute rabbit to use in your Easter decorations, check out Hobby Lobby.  I love this one because it was big and had a chippy old look.

I am slowing changing things in my old tool box to spring stuff.

Home with my dog...

 I put the finishing stitches on "Home" by Bent Creek yesterday morning.  I am going to get this one framed and put it in he laundry room.

 This is Scooter.  Just one of my three little boys!  he loves to lay near me on the sofa or bed when I am stitching.
 I chose this piece back in January because it had this big heart in it.  It had me working hard to finishing it for Valentine's Day.

The weather is terribly cold and windy this weekend.  It is so nice to just stay at HOME by the fire with my dogs and stitch!
