Crock Covers

It's amazing how collections start. When we tore down our old garage last spring to build the new one, we had to clean out everything from the old one. I found it cathartic to get rid of alot of junk and to find some old treasures I had forgotten about. I seem to have collected several crock covers so I decided to display them in my basket that is always on my front porch.
The one on the left I bought at a yard sale a while back, the one in the front is the cover to a bean pot that I bought in Maine that I use to plant geraniums in, and the one on the right came from my Mom's house. I even had another one on display in my summer kitchen.
And now wherever I go I see lids. My daughter and I were on an antiquing outing a few weeks ago and I found these ones for $5.
And here's the fourth one of that set hanging out in my bathroom on my green shelf that is always changing.
And since we're on a Halloween theme here, Baby C wishes you all a Happy Halloween!

  11. Crock lids... what a cool thing to collect. They look so pretty in the basket.


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
