It looks like trash, but it will be my treasure

Thank you for you kind and sweet comments yesterday.

Look what I found at our tiny cottage dump. Oh you might look at this and say what the heck is this piece of junk. Well, roofers will tell you that this is a twirly roof vent. I will tell you that it is something that will be transformed next weekend.
Ohhh you may wonder what I am going to do with this.... but you have to wait until next weekend to see :)
During one of my many walks this weekend I found this little treasure. What you may ask is this well I thought it was a carburetor. Hubby chuckled at me (this is nothing new teehee) it is a distributor cap from an old scout.
Again you may ask what is she going to do with this hunk of my hubby and FIL Ray asked LOL. Yet again you have to wait until next weekend when I (when I say I, I mean Hubby) paints this puppy up and makes it all pretty and useful.
I had some trouble with our chipmunks at our cottage this weekend. This little guy was being a bully. He wouldn't let any other chipmunks come and share the millions of sunflower seeds we put out for them.
I would yell and stomp my foot at him. He actually ran into my foot chasing a tiny one. Finally I had to stand in between them for them all to get their fair share. I don't like to see bullying LOL. But in the end he calmed down and let me pet him. He wouldn't share the blueberry rejects that I threw on the ground though LOL.
Our friendly bunny. He comes and greets us as we pull up to the cottage every weekend.
Hubby puts out sunflower seeds and peanuts for the birds and chipmunks, Bunny loves the empty peanut shells. He gets very close to us. I guess he knows that we are not a threat to him.

We had to leave camp a bit earlier as Heather had to work. We are going to Duluth tomorrow, girls weekend. I needed to do some laundry and pack. I sure am excited. I will bring my laptop, but I will only be on it in the evening. Mind you, because Ashley's laptop is in getting repaired, I guess mine will be shared with all my girls.

Hope your weekend was as enjoyable and relaxing as mine was.



  1. Just checked out your post for yesterday as I was out all day and didn't get to see it, hope your stinger is feeling better today. Am looking forward to seeing what you do with that airvent I am guessing a plater but will see next week what turns out. Have a great time with the girls x

  2. Just read it.... doh! planter is what I meant

  3. Really enjoy seeing your wildlife photos. And, can't wait to see what you create with the roof vent. Have fun on your getaway!

  4. Those are treasures INDEED! I can't wait to see what you create with them! Great finds! And I am so jealous that you got to pet a chipmunk!

  5. Can't wait to see what you create with your treasures! My husband accidentally bought sunflower seeds instead of thistle, so now I know what do to with them! Can't believe you can pet the chipmunks!

  6. Can't wait to see what you do with your latest "hunk of junk" ha ha ha!

    Cute wildlife pics! I think chipmunks are adorable - especially sassy little bully ones! HA HA!

    Enjoy your time away!

  7. Me too! Especially the twirly roof vent. I guess after I see it, I might have to bring ours down (or decorate it while it's still on the roof?!?!? :-) Glad you're getting that chipmunk under control!

  8. I can't believe the chipmunk lets you touch it. Looking forward to seeing what you are going to make with your treasure find.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
