Yesterday I went back to the Little Thrift Store That Could (my favorite tiny thrift) and found these. I am a complete sucker for glass and silver - and Cobalt Blue is my absolute favorite. Cost? They were marked .55 cents each. Odd that they would sell them separate but for $1.10 for the set I wanted them. I got to the counter and was only charged 55 cents plus tax for a grand total of 59 cents for both as the cashier advised they should have been tagged a pair versus each. Score! I have not cleaned them up at all - obviously the salt shaker needs a bit of work. They are marked with a Patent Number from the U.K. on the bottom.
The little birds absolutely love the bird feeder condo - this one is playing king of the castle (or lookout for neighbors cat). The original boy bird that found the feeder has become so territorial he spends his days chasing off the others - except for the girl birds. He also has become very tame and used to us. Hubby walked up the the feeder the other night and he didn't move. Hubby put out his hand and actually touched the bird as he seems very unconcerned about us, THE FEEDERS. Perhaps he is a little off in the head. We are preparing to increase our bird food budget as this is now one of our major sources of entertainment.
This is a bad picture of three of the Snowbird pilots who are training here currently in Comox for two weeks. I was out on the lawn talking to the neighbors and nine in perfect V formation flew overhead but the camera was in the house unfortunately. We are very happy they train here. A bit of noise during the day but such a pleasure to watch. For those who don't live in Canada these pilots show up for every major Canadian event like the Olympics, Visits from Presidents and Prime Ministers from other Countries and even when the Royals visit. They also attend most Airshows in North America - definitely a Canadian Treasure.
Tommorrow I am off for a three day work bee at Mom's to help her prep her 1969 senior mobile home for sale as it goes on the market on Thursday. It needs a lot of help, mostly cleaning and de-cluttering. My Mom loves clutter, likely why I became a minimalist. Have a great week everyone!
