but you know what...

i didn't turn on the computer all weekend...

i know...

it was wonderful..

we celebrated not only my birthday...

but this little one's as well...




Photobucket

she's a kid...

sheesh...sigh...when did that happen??...

{hate to let her know....she'll always be my baby...}

so happy birthday little one...

you are much loved...

you have completed our family...

with all your pinkness...*we love you*

i had a couple other giveaways lined up last week that we didn't get to...

this giveaway comes from the fabulous Etsy store:

...old crow farm...

oh.my.goodness. girls...

this store is absolutely unbelievable...

they say "rescue some cool junk"...

okay...if you insist...you don't have to tell me twice...

cause this prairie girl *loves* junk...

i could spend every last one of the husband's cow check in this place...

here are a few finds that i have my prairie eye on...



Photobucket

i know...it's okay...go ahead and drool...we'll look the other way...


Photobucket

i have to tell you that i was lucky enough to be on their site when they uploaded this..



Photobucket

not only is it metal meets wood...

but look...numbers and wheat...sigh...divine...

it now resides in my kitchen...*bliss*...

their store is packed full with vintage, industrial, junky goods..

the kind that makes you wonder where in the world they find such good junk...sigh...

{maybe if i agree to send them some grass feed beef they might share their secret...hhhmm...jojo you there girl?!?!}

I would be tempted by "It's a Jar Thing #11" -- talk about unique!

KarenSue said...

Just what I need is another Etsy to drool over. It's hard to control myself.
I sure hope you pick me.

awal.ny said...

Double happy birthdays. My daughter is turning 6 on April fools day, and I did not like pink until I had her, enjoy. I love the pictures and I would have to go with the molding, I am a sucker for it. The crates, we have them all over here, we are lucky that we still have a dairy farm that delivers fresh milk everyday. The last picture, I'm not sure what I would do with it.

Barbara Jean said...

Well, Happy Birthday, and what a nice giveaway.
Since I do not have twitter, I will not be able to enter, but will go check out that great ETSY store you told us about, and sign up to follow your wonderful blog. So glad Dawn told us about you.

Rustique Art said...

Most of my "junk rescue" ends up on my walls somewhere, but I also do my share of rescuing old dishes and or cookie jars from flea markets. Let's face it...if you have a junk fetish...then it all has the potential to end up in my house. :) and that's just fine with me.

So I totally misread the post...it was "what would I rescue from her shop"... this,
