But before I show you my new ones. . .let's take a look at my old ones.
Ha, ha, had you going there for a while didn't I? As much as this old gal could use a lift, that's not the kind of 'hooters' that I am talking about.
I snagged these vintage cuties at a yard sale a few years ago.
Just look at those big beautiful eyes.
I gave this set to my youngest daughter, Kylee but she graciously let me use them.
Recently I gave my sewing room a makeover. It's amazing what you can discover when you do a little organizing. lol!
I ran across this kit for a whimsical owl pillow. It's a combination of both fabric and wool appliqué. I picked it up for half price last year and didn't get around to making it.
Wide eyed owl sitting on a branch.
Isn't he a hoot?
I went to a sale at Kneaders yesterday with my cousin. Did you know that they have a annual sale clearing out all of their leftover decor items?
I picked up a few more hooters. This little guy was only $1. He sits in an old bread bowl amongst dried Hydrangea blooms. Can you believe they were red? Love the color and they are perfect for Fall!
This little fella was only 50 cents. I added him to a book bundle along with a trio of old keys and a library card.
They sit on an old wooden box on my coffee table next to a couple of rusty finials I recently purchased from Burlap Luxe blog.
I have to tell you a little about this rustic box.
It's really weathered and worn, but I couldn't bear to paint it and cover up some of the fabulous graphics. Loved this number 61. Which just happens to be the age of this old gal.
The label says that it is a Mimeograph by Mr. Thomas A. Edison. My sil googled and found that it was the first copy machine. The box was empty when I found it at an estate sale.
It's rustic but refined!
This last hooter was another 50 cent score at the Kneaders sale. I also picked up the mercury glass acorns, $1 for the group of three.
I had some chick-o-sticks so I tossed them in a jar and tied this little fella and the acorns to the top with a red ribbon. A pretty flower compliments the bling of the mercury glass.
Well now that you've seen my 'hooters', I'd love to see yours!!!
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
