On the way up north for vacation last week I found some vintage tin jello moulds at a little antique shop.
I took a quick peek around the store because my guys and the dog were waiting. These tin moulds caught my eye and were very reasonable. I'm assuming they were for jello but maybe not?
I remember my mom having some of these, including a larger tin mould, but mostly she had plastic Tupperware jell-o moulds.
There are 10 of the smaller moulds and the larger swirl pattern is a set of four. Now I have to decide if I will keep them or sell them. The moulds would make cute Christmas ornaments.
We had a great holiday at my hubby's brother and sister-in-law's home in the country. The weather was cool but the kids still got to swim most days and we had lots of catching up and relaxing time with a favourite bil, sil and their two girls. Our oldest went to his cousins' farm for milking chores at 5am and 4pm each day but the farm was just 10 minutes away. My bil and sil also hosted an extended family bbq that weekend. Now we are home and I am back to finishing some smaller projects and continuing with cleaning and organizing our home.
Today after some early morning gardening, staining two wood crates and waxing a plant stand I spotted a huge spider beside the hutch in our kitchen. It got away and I had to track it down so I ended up emptying the hutch and removing the top portion to get underneath.
Caught the creepy thing though! Of course the emptying and dusting lead to some rearranging. I removed the vintage wood bobbins and spools for a lighter look. (And I made the decision to repaint the blue armoire you can see in this photo. Time for a change.)
By the time I got everything back on the shelves this afternoon clouds and rain rolled in so I will share more photos of our kitchen another day. I'm finding it hard to believe that August is here already. The boys head back to school and I head back to work in just over a month. I'm enjoying all this time at home. Hoping you have a great weekend!
