Hobby Lobby must be reading blogs


I know these really don't look too alike in these pictures.  Overlook the glue strings above.  I made this one from a mini matchbox.  I built up the sides a little and then I distressed it to look old.
Well, yesterday I was in Hobby Lobby and low and behold they had fairy garden things out and on sale.  I spotted these wagons.  They feel like they are some kind of light weight metal;  They could be just some kind of coating over paper, I don't know.  They used nuts for wheels and even the handle resembles the handle I made.  They were on $2.99 and then on sale.  I bought the three they had.  I put it next to the other matchbox I just made.  They are very close in size.  The matchbox is a tiny bit larger.

The last time I was in there they had the books that are made into letters.  Just like these.  They had small ones and little ones.  They were made to look like they were out of old books but they were made from wood.
I also saw the burlap table runners with the lace on the ends.  I really feel they must read blogs or pinterest, don't you.  I suppose that's how they do their job. 
I got a new print from dudadaze.blogspot.com awhile ago.  I think this is the third one I got from here.  One was a gift .  I can't wait to frame these and hand them.  It's still in it's package but the bottom reads "I'm so lucky that I ended up next to you.  They look like worn out bears, or should I say aged.  She does the cutest things.  The original print was called cereal box art.  I think she painted it on a cereal box.  You can see how she edged it.

Okay, it  is like way too cold around here.  I have had to be out the last couple of days, and it's just nasty.  Schools cancelled again. 
I will be back soon.

Those little wagons are just darling, Debby. What a buy, too.
I love the little "book" letters, too.
Cute bear print. It will be fun to see it hung up with the other two prints.
Have a great day-sorry your weather is still so crappy. xo Diana

I love the bear print. It fits the saying perfectly. You are very brave to be out and about in this cold weather. I've become quite a recluse because of the wicked weather and the cold. I am sooooo going to enjoy Spring this year.

You stay warm, and if you have to go out, do be careful. Have a super day, hugs, Edna B.
