294: Guess What? Chicken Butt.

hi sweet people,

Blogland was kind to me this week: Sugar Snap was featured on Sew Mama Sew and my studio redo was featured on Whip Up. Thanks, yo!

Welcome to any new Yummy Goods readers! I hope you'll sit down and stay a while. And don't be shy, please do say hello, ok?

Just so you know, I'm really messy and I swear occasionally and I'm always cold. But I hope my good qualities outweigh the bad. I'm pretty good at spelling, after all.

Ok, back to business.

How about some recent thrift finds? Yes? Oh, ok. Good.

Awesome coloring, right?

Ooooh, he might just have to go on the bird shelf. (If you like room redo's, you'll want to check out that link.)

At first, I mistook this for just a figurine. Then I realized there was a little plug on the underside, so I looked for the holes to confirm that it was a salt (or pepper) shaker.

Hmmm. I looked on top and didn't see any. That's odd...

Tee hee, here they are:

The salt (or pepper) comes out of its butt! Honey, can you pass the chicken butt, please? (Tee hee, I just said butt.)

..............................................................

Oh, hey. Back by popular demand, my crazy-long undulating link list. Kiss a few hours goodbye.

And I added a search window, it's at the bottom of the sidebar.

How about this little cutie?

It's only a couple inches tall. I love it.

>sigh<

This makes me want spring. Actually, since I'm such a coldie, even spring is too cold. I want July.

You know what I say to myself all winter? Someday it will be summer. It's like a mantra. I'll be walking with a friend, all bundled up against the freezing air and I will say to them, "You know, someday it will be summer. Someday we will be walking out here in tanks tops and we will be hot."

As you know, I'm trying to break out of my music rut, so I loaded up my ipod with a bunch of music I haven't listened to in a while:

Keren Ann

The Killers

Vampire Weekend

Ingrid Michaelson

She and Him (recommended by someone many months ago when I asked for suggestions!)

Belle and Sebastian

What are you listening to?

Another thrift find:

Isn't it pretty? I think it's Japanese. A delicate little handpainted teacup. Are those herons or egrets? Or something else? (Dad?)

Yeah, I could use a manicure.

Favorite snacks this week:

Trader Joe's Moral Fiber Blueberry Bran Muffins- oh my god, yum. So moist and delicious.

Mini Rye Toast Crackers with Castello (a soft blue cheese) and honey.

This isn't really a snack, but I am chowing down on Atomic Fireballs. I love them.

The other day, Stuart and I were leaving the house and he said, "Look up."

Oh, the cuteness.
