living in my bag of brown sugar!
He's quite a cute little guy, don't you think?
I bought him years ago when my niece was selling that over-priced junk schools send kids out to sell. Amongst the candy and wrapping paper items, I found him (for somewhere in the ridiculous $8.00 range). He sat for years in the back of my cupboard in the little box he came in.
Last fall I came across him and decided to use him as he was intended--to keep my brown sugar free of hard lumps.
So far he seems to be doing the job quite well.
Last August I bought a bouquet of sunflowers at the farmer's market. The sunflowers are long gone, but the yellow statice they used as filler is still happily residing in colored bottles on my kitchen window ledge.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
