Shopping in Trier

I spent the day shopping with a neighbor friend on Saturday. We spent the day in Trier and had a fun time. I bought some goodies for the house. I've been hung up on birds lately and was on the lookout for an iron bird. I didn't find one, but found some made of stone. I also found this wonderful bird bath for sitting on a shelf or window ledge. I haven't decided on which yet. It was on sale for 5 Euro's!

Next I found this wonderful jar with an iron top on it. I can't figure out what to put in it, so any ideas would be appreciated. I just loved it and had to bring it home with me. Not sure if you can see the iron ring of keys in the lower left corner, but had to have those too. Now the iron basket in back is one that I have had for awhile. I just haven't figured out what to put in it or how to use it. So again, I would love some ideas.

Here is a gorgeous Iron Water Feature in the Walkplatz of Trier. I would love to have something like this in my future dream home.

I will get to my quilting pics soon, so be sure to check back.

Wire basket would be cute with small little quilt. :-) about some spools of pearl cotton? If your thinking food wise...chocolate! LOL

How about rolled fat quarters in the basket or if you want to use it for something non-quilt-related (perish the thought) rolled towels in the bathroom, tea towels or dish cloths in the kitchen, potted herbs, toilet paper. Gee, I think I want one!

Now for the jar...vintage spools of thread, tomato pincushions, ribbon, rick rack, lace or any other related doo dads, left over binding, buttons. Gee, i think I need one of those too!

As for the keys, I can always add my mailing address to this comment. (wink)

Super stuff. I love it all!
