Earlier today, I took the time to finally adjust the large cuckoo clock in the living room. Anyway, after I adjusted the hour, I also adjusted the sound part of the clock. there is a little button on the side of the clock that allows you to reset the number of times the bird does his thing. The clock look vastly different than just an hour before. I had no time on my hands or, rather more correctly, I had no hands on my time. It was missing a hand. Nope, the missing hand was not there. I searched the floor, Nope, no hand in sight. I got down on my hands and knees to search beneath the piece of furniture. still no hand. Well, I'll be. Where was that hand. "Hey, I have a mystery on my hands. errr, lack of hands. (heehee) It seems that the hand had fallen off of the clock just as I had suspected but it did not fall far. The carvings on the cuckoo clock are set a tad out from the main housing of the clock itself. The hand had fallen directly behind the carved wooden bird nest that adorns the front of the clock. (I think those two birds stole the hand.
It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure. About an hour ago, I started feeling like I could hurl at any minute. Merry Christmas to me. Let's see if I can get through this. These are my finds from the weekend at that one yard sale and at my Super Cheap Thrift. Let's see it one more time. At the sale where everything was FREE: I grabbed a box full of Christmas ornaments just because of the Santa mug on top. I also found the slightly scary mni mug in there as well as the wooden ornaments. The chunky wooden bangle is kind of fun and those measuring spoons. That blue Bundt pan made me decide to start collecting colorful Bundt pans BECAUSE I NEED ANOTHER COLLECTION. *cough* I do not need another collection, but I found that PINK one not long ago so now I see they come in all colors and I think they would look interesting along the soffit in the kitchen. A dogwood vase and dogwood napkin rings, a small vase, tiny restaurantware bowl, fruit chalkware and a awesome blue deer pottery planter.
