Pie Bird



Pie Bird.... pie vent,pie chimney,pie funnel , pie whistle.....

                         is a hollow ceramic device, originated in Europe...used for venting a pie


                               You have heard that children's rhyme ...4 and 20 blackbirds baked in a
                                                           pie.....

                      While out touring not with the intention of antiquing I found .........

                                                        wait for it........

                                                  A Pie Bird........

                We took off  a couple of weeks ago with the old vehicles touring
                                             Lakeshore dr.
                                 From New Castle to Port Hope.....
















                                            Very Scenic..... took a few pictures......






                                      As you can see the closer we made it to the Lake Ontario the skies
                                                                cleared making for a gorgeous day.....

                                               **notice the house below the hill***


                                                   Then we happened upon a cute antique shop...

                                                         The first glass display I looked into
                                                                   There it was.....

                                                       A Black Pie Bird......

                                                             Has that ever happened to you....
                                              you are just out and about not really looking for anything
                                                                   in particular and there it stood......

                                                        So here is my Blackbird sitting high upon my  shelf
                                                                          









                                                                     Isn't he magnificint?

                                                                   Yes see the markings......
                      



                                                                      ENGLAND

Fresh Herb Wreath


                                                                  
                                                             Welcome!


                                                             Fall!

                                The leaves on the trees are turning ....a cool brisk air....
                                          boots...sweaters....jeans....scarves......


                                                       

                                               Time to clean up the vegetable garden or
                                                                 did you plant in containers...

                                      Well I had an abundance of Lemon Thyme and
                                                                Rosemary.....


                                                    Did you know that if you smell rosemary
                                                       you know run it through your hands that
                                                                         it helps with memory.......


                                                 So I decided to make a fresh herb wreath...
                                                                  Just so I could smell that
                                                                       Rosemary.......


                                                I'm sure any plain form you have on hand will do
                                                               but I had this one on hand.....
                                                                  a tad larger than I wanted but heck it's free right...

                                               
                                                             Just cut your bunches of herbs and tie them...
                                                                          I used fine floral wire.....$store....
                    
                                                                       Then I tied them onto my wreath
                                                                                      using the same wire...
                                                                                  so it doesn't show.......

                                                             You could use lavender in bunches ...sage...
                                                                                with the rosemary and time.....

                                                                                   Oh wouldn't that smell
                                                                                         heavenly.....









                                                                 I haven't hung mine yet but here it is
                                                                               on my sideboard close to the
                                                                                   door so when a breeze come through
                                                                                               heavenly.......

                                     
                                                                      Enjoy you fall day!

                                   Out touring with the 49 ford pick up..........


                                                                     Thanks for stopping by!

Fall.....




                              Yes fall has arrived ....Where did the summer go......

                                       I can't get over that's it's already the end of September.....

                                               We have had a very busy month and I will share
                                     over the next few days what has been happening here at the
                                                    White Weathered Hutch.....

                                A fall colour cruise...antiquing.....fall home tour..........


                                             First off sorry for the MIA ........

                                                   Hands have been busy finishing off these
                                                                slouchies....beanies....




                                                           



                                                   The colourful one is made from this yarn Scheepjes that
                                                          I purchased from Deamores online store
                                                           oh how  I loved the way it feels......


                                                                    The other three were crocheted with
                                                                       Redheart DK that I had in my stash....

                                                 
                                                             This is such an easy pattern to follow.
                                                                       I found it here.
                                               

                                             Look what else came in the Mail from Deamores


                                                                    



                                                                        

                                                   This yarn is from  Stylecraft .........

                                                           So soft and squishy.........

                                                     I purchased the 10 pack of medium colours
                                                                          plus 2 white......

                                                            Now to decide on a pattern.....
                                                                    HMMMMM any ideas.......


                                                As always Thanks for stopping by!

Trash to Treasures



                                       Is there a specific piece that you look for.....


                                               Are you a collector......

                                      Does colour matter..........

        Well I'm the kind of gal that is spontaneous ........If I see a bowl and like it's colour.....
                                   I take it home.....does $$$$ matter.........

                                             Of course it does.......







                               So when I came across this pudding bowl at a yard sale and
                           the lady says .25 cents .....would you  linger and hummm and haaa...
                                   no....you would pay her promptly.....and wonder wow!!!! deal
                                              of the day!!!!!






                                       Then I spot this outdoor carpet laying there under a tree.....
                                           no price.....hmmmm and haaaa.....the nice person says it's
                                               yours for $2.00 sold.......roll it up and take it.....
                                                      Know it will look great on my upper deck ...

                                       carry on farther down the road and come across another yard sale....
                                                 this bowl sings to me......love the colour......

 


                                              This person knows it's an antique......$5.00 sold........
                                                     then I see a container of marbles....allies....
                                                      .25 cents ....sold....thought I would use them




                                                          someday....or just show my grands how we played
                                                                 with them.....not electronic games like now.....

                                                         Then we are off to Lakefield fairgrounds to the annual
                                                                           Antique show and sale.....

                                                                       Bought these two shaving mugs....
                                                                         both from different vendors.......
                                                                            The blue one was $1.00
                                                                              the green was $2.00....




                                                       I'm crazy over trasnsferware.........

                                               Then from afar I spotted her.......knowing that she was
                                                               maybe 19 years old not an antique.....
                                                                            but a collectible item.....

                                                                       can you guess????









                                                No I don't collect Barbies....but she will make
                                                              someone happy.....
                                                   The price on the box when new $54.00
                                                         It still had the sticker in contact.....
                                                                          Zellers.....






                                                                 I paid $15.00.......

                                                  Started out at $25.00 then down to $15.00

                                                                 Couldn't go wrong......

                                                   Oh yes and this cute red pick up truck
                                                       $7.00.....Mr.WWH couldn't make
                                                                       it for that price.....

                                                               You will have to wait to see
                                                                          it.....already full of
                                                                ..............................................

                                    Have you been out treasure hunting lately..........
