I am not believing this, You never know!
I showed you some items I got at the flea market and one item being the blow up owl I fell in love with. I love owls anyway!
Well, I pick up some vintage magazines sometimes at the re-cycle bin when we take our newspapers, aluminum, cans, and plastics to be re-cycled and I was looking at one this morning on my porch. I could not believe my eyes when I found it in a Gardner's Eden Catalog! This catalog was from Fall 1984!
It shows the owl tied to a stake in your garden to scare away "pest pillaging your garden" as it says!
I would not put it in my garden as my pillagers are not pests. They lived here before I did. Our our squirrels and bunnies, deer and bear get into our nuts, birdseed, and has even been eating my magnolia seed pods. Now, Magnolia Trees do not grow in the woods but I found the pods while I was in Brasstown, NC last week. I took my Bittersweet baskets, brooms and wreaths to the "Frog and the Dragon" which is a small shop in the quaint art gallery village by the John C. Campbell Folk School. They close in the winter and are now only open weekends but at least they are off the porch. No one can buy them from my porch! At least maybe one will tickle someone's fancy in Judy's shop.
I still have some items in " Carolina Crafting" there also. The are just a few shops away from one another. Jackie will change her shop over in January 2013 to bath and kitchen items so I am changing out my inventory with her slowly.
Now, Brasstown, NC is not a big town but it has been in the news lately with the" Annual New Years Possum Drop". Clay's Corner is the focal point store there and Peta has been on them for years about this.
Well, I never know what I will find in the trash! The bins are not all drop in, especially the newspaper bin.
And, I will return them to their former site when I am done with them again. But, there is not a glass recycle bin like in Alabama like I used to go to at Montevallo Jr. College in Montevallo, AL, so I am still hording my glass jars and bottles.
