Freaky Friday - Weather House!
I mentioned that I was in Ithaca the other weekend and bought out Hobby Lobby. I found some other cool stuff that day, too.
I stopped in one antiques store that I almost never go in because they're so overpriced, and look what I found high up on a shelf:
The faded label on the back said it was a "Weather Wizard". After doing some googling, turns out they're also called "weather houses". The little figures rotate in and out of the house depending on what the weather is. Of course, here in great Upstate New York, we KNOW what the weather is - either raining or snowing - but still, it's a neat little thing. Plus, it only cost me five bucks, so ... win! The deer head makes the piece, I think. :)
On the way home, on impulse I swung into the parking lot of a furniture reseller, and look!
CONCRETE Virgin Mary. I can't decide if I want to paint her pretty or keep the minimalist look. Hmmm ...
That was a day of epic finds, no doubt about it.
