Congratulations on that wonderful sign!


Wait, those are stainless? Not aluminum? Cause my mom had a very similar set in "spun" aluminum. Wedding present, 1952. They're on my kitchen counter.

Also, this is a YES! Yes, please! vote for weekly instructions for making gumdrop farm animals!

Love that sign and your "farm" commentary, being raised a farm girl myself. Long ago and far away....LOL! Enjoy "getting your eyes filled up" with your new sign! Thank you for stopping by my blog today.


Ohhh - that is a good question. Im putting it out there to the world: stainless or aluminum? I thought they were stainless because theyre made by a company called Steelmaster. Anybody know?

Loving the oodles sign and your first gumdrop creation should be a cow...in honor of that AWESOME sign. Glad your week had such good finds - still waiting for an estate sale here on the west coast. I SO NEED ONE!

That oodles sign is incredible. You are so fortunate there are alert bloggers out there because I'm guessing this is a once in a lifetime find.

On the canisters: I'm no rocket scientist but I think a magnet will stick to stainless steel but not to aluminum. Plus I just think they're aluminum -- isn't stainless shiny? Gotta go, NASA is calling.

NASA just hung up on me after reminding me that stainless steel appliances are not shiny.


B - first - LOVE those robin canisters (will Spring ever come?). And Sue was very kind to get you your sign - sweet! I'll stay clear of the great aluminum (and how do You pronounce it?) and steel debate. I may be many things, but rocket scientist is not on my curriculum vitae...


The recipe books are a hoot. And your oodles sign is crazy cute...it's so cool to know there are blog friends out there to make sure the sign got to the right home!

That sign is very cool! Leave it to Sue to find something amazing like that!

You had a really great week of items ! I think that your Oodles sign takes the cake however.... what a wonderful gift !! GOOD FOR YOU ! And - I am going to second the vote on weekly instructions for making candy and gumdrop animals... I'll bet they are really cute.


I'm certain a week couldn't get any better than lovely canisters and vintage farm animal stuff. Way to ring in the new year!


I love the sign! How perfect!

I love the book with the gumdrop figures too. I actually think that would be a fun way to decorate a cupcake for a child, or for the child within, so please do share the intructions. Pretty please?

The bird cannisters are charming. I wonder why we don't see things made with charm, or a whimsical sense of humor about them anymore? Or simply very well made things, out of good materials? I have an old set of cannisters that I love. They are so heavy, the lids fit perfectly, and the charm that they add to my kitchen makes me smile. I suppose that's why we love old things so much.

The sign is fabulous! You are one lucky girl! A cow named Oodles. So cool.


I'm speechless, that is too cool for school.


Nice post. I love it. Waiting your new posts. Thank you...

LOVE the bird canisters. I have one from that set and have always considered it one of my favs. I would love gum drop animal instructions, what a fun way to cope with cold, snow, cold,snow and too much football.
The oodles sign is the best, such a good friend.

I love projects like the vintage Canister Reunification Project. About steel or aluminum, steel is indeed magnetic and steel is quite heavy, aluminum is light. Last clue: has it printed 'stainless steel' on it?

(this is a joke)

The sign is cute too. Have a great week and more darling projects.
