An Eventful Week--and a Bit of Decorating!

It's been quite an eventful week down here in the Dallas area.

Tuesday was quite scary! Fortunately, despite the horrific damage to several communities, not one person was killed or even seriously injured in all the tornadoes.

Our family is fine, praise the Lord--we called out middle son and found him in the bathtub, hiding from the tornadoes in the Arlington area. All we suffered was loss of electricity. Fortunately, my parents still had lights, so I could finish a research paper due Wednesday! Better still, my mom fed us!

Late last week I took a few minutes to do a bit of decorating. I've had this old bread baking pan--um, thingie!--hiding in the closet for a couple of years! It was time to get it out and do something with it!

So I took some fun things around the house to put INSIDE the bread pans.

First, a little chicken pot holder. It's a bit rough around the edges, but it's got RED trim and wings!
 Next, metal chicken cookie cutters and a candy mold. The mold was a gift from a friend, while the middle cookie cutter is new, and I found the one on the left for a few cents down in Waxahachie.
 These two were part of a sun catcher that fell down and broke. Finally, a place for momma hen and her chick!
 Yes, I know--one's a cow.  But the other is a chicken!
 This little chickie has been sitting around the house here and there--now he sits in this old blue enamel ladle hanging on the bread pans!

So easy and lots of fun! Thanks for looking!

Thank you Gail for having such a great link party!
And thanks for stopping by! I usually don't bake 4 loaves at a time--maybe this is a bakery type item?
