Last weekend in my travels I saw an old herb shaker bottle that was filled with sprinkles and I immediately thought that I needed one in my kitchen too! Meg and I sort of looked for one as we hit some antique shops but I didn’t see any that I really liked so I came home and found the perfect shaker on ebay! It arrived today and I could hardly wait to fill it with sprinkles and put it next to my salt and pepper shakers and as I anticipated, it is just what the kitchen needed.

The real test will be at Easter when the little Devine boys come for dinner and find that there are sprinkles to go on the ham or anything else they think to be sprinkle worthy!

Spring is about to actually spring!

Niece Megan called last night and wondered what I was doing today.  She came to visit and we made a day of shopping.  We started out at the somewhat local green house and got into the mood of spring before hitting the flea markets and antique shops.  After smelling the hyacinths and seeing all the lovely blooming bulbs I fought the urge to purchase pansies.  It is really to soon here to be planting them out, there is snow in the forecast for this week. 

So off to the antique mall.  I bought another floral frog and another small white pitcher, Meg found some crates she liked and a cute silver dish and a few other things to hang on her walls.  We had a great time and five hours later arrived home.  

I can't wait for yard sales to start!
