Bar Bits


 Good Morning.

It's Friday and I am happy to report it is cold here. Not in the mid 70's any more.
 I am at our old house and freezing.  You can feel the air come up through the floor and walls. Shelley and I will be returning to the yellow house in a little while. Joe will join us later. Our old house is not for wimps.  Of course, I wimped out and had to have another house three years ago.

This is our bar at the yellow house filled with my bits. 
My bits consist of McCoy Pottery, 1960's fruit, a chalk lamb,
 glassware, family tea cups and more. 
 The homemade vanilla, while not really dark, smells divine.
I will be baking with it now.


  This bar is so large I feel compelled to fill it, with my thrifty finds,
 in the middle and at the end.


Happy Friday
Olive

  3. I agree with Carlene about the bread board on legs. I love the little sheep and the glass covered dish. As always with you Olive, it all looks exquisite. Enjoy your weekend my friend.

  10. Olive, your pictures are gorgeous. If it's any consolation, my old house is freezing too - though to be fair it's as warm as toast in this room where our Rayburn sits - you just get icy blasts when you go through the door.

  11. HI Olive! I love this and you've really put together a pretty spot. Love your fish jug. I think I need your lamb and footed breadboard.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  16. We're back to cold up here in Ontario. It's kind of lucky to have two houses to showcase all your finds. Looks great!

  17. Filling up every inch of real estate is what we do. For what it's worth, it may be very cold in your neck o'the woods, but your bar is pretty darn cool!
