The Scavenger Hunt...

Misi at 1890 Gable House Musings is having a Scavenger Hunt! <--Click there to read all about it. This week we needed to find :

#1-Old Jar of Garden seeds
#2 Faceless Rag/Cloth Doll
#3 Homespun Pillow Case – Must be ADULT BED SIZE or larger
#4 Pastry Roller- Must have DETAIL TO PRINT
#5 Doll Bed
#6 A piece of old Ironstone Pottery/Dishware

I was able to find all but 1, the pastry roller. I know I have one, but I can't find it anywhere. So, five out of six is pretty good. I wish I'd chosen a better spot for my display, but I was looking for a room with good light. Looking at the photos now, I can see several better ways to have arranged my things. Here's the close up:

You can click on the photo for a closer look. The cradle is an antique one I found in my hometown a few summers ago. There is a sweet little faceless dollie from Square Nails, and a little Amish boy I made from old materials. The grey homespun pillow behind them is from our guest bed. The big doll I found on eBay, and she wears a real Amish baby dress. I always keep my seeds from the previous season in these old jars, so I just grabbed some out of the laundry room. . I love Ironstone, and have it displayed in several places around the house.

This wire shelf might be my favorite thing in the house. I keep my sentimental pieces here, and I just love looking at them all together.  Please be sure to stop by Misi's blog each week to keep up with the scavenger hunters!
