~ Cute Do-Dad And Dinner ~

Hi everyone. Hope your day has been nice. I had lots of little errands to run, took Lilly for a walk and have just been puttering around home. Look at this cute little do-dad my friend Michelle gave me. Do you have a clue what it's used for? Flowers...maybe, but we thought it would be perfect for my Bakelite flatware.
Carl found a whole service for six several years ago at the flea market. I love the greens and Carl's favorite color is red. Do you have a favorite?
How cool is this? I'm so glad my friend passed this cute do-dad on to me...I love it. Well, I need to start thinking about dinner, I'm fixing Paula Deen's country friend steak.....yum, yum. Have a happy evening, hugs, Linda

Mom and I have one, we used it is an artist caddy. We made one in ceramics class and used it to carry and store our brushes and ceramic clean-up tools. When I find it, I will take a picture. I like what you are using yours for, very clever.

Oh Linda:
I like the orange. All of it is pretty though. That is the perfect holder for it too. Great find.

My mom used to have something like that while I was growing up. It sat on our kitchen table and she would use it for flowers, silverware, napkins, straws. The items were forever changing. Thanks for jogging a happy memory.
Your dinner sounds fab. I may have to look up that recipe. We have baked chicken w/rice and veggies last night :0)

Very Cooooool!
Please visit my blog to see how much your PIF meant to me and how it arrived at just the right time. I wore my red hot scarf to work today and everyone remarked on it. I will treasure it forever! Thank you so much Linda. Best wishes to you and "Himself"

Cute cute...... and it would look too great with dried flowers.... but the bake lite is good also.... I have a huge old pot full of vintage utensils..... I am thinking of putting them on Ebay...... I am trying to scale down on "stuff"

I will take pictures you might see something you like before I sell them.....

LOVE all your bakelite silverware! My favorite color is the yellow and amber colors. They all look so great in your do-dad basket! What a perfect use for it!
It was so good to hear from you! Have a great weekend!!
