Wild Saturday Nights

.

This evening, after finishing up day-lab work, I finished 3 window treatments for the kitchen, out of 2 yards of fabric. I had nothing to spare in the end, but it is done. I will have to take pictures tomorrow morning and post them.

I also finished touching up these old chalkware birds from the 50s I have for the soffit in the kitchen. I love them so much. A few of them had a lot of scuffs on the black area...and the sides were a faded red. So, i just touched up both black and red:

It's hard to see in the photos, but they have an intaglio effect, where the birds are concave. It's very pretty:

A few weeks ago my daughter found this little skunk at a garage sale for 25 cents. A few days later while looking through one of my pottery books, we saw it under the Hagen Renaker section:

Anyway, I surprised her today with a few more I found: mama fox, baby fox, and a Pomeranian. Just for little mementos of the summer with Bailey and the foxes. She really loved them. I need to keep an eye out for a little calico cat too:




.

They are so tiny!

Aw, I used to collect these when I was about 10 years old also. I even had the mama fox. I love that you picked ones that mean something special to both of you.

Maybe look for a H-R Prowling Cat. You can probably find one online even though she's discontinued
