Drained

I am so happy that Friday is here. I am totally drained...





Sorry, I couldn't resist. I am a sucker for a good play on words. I'm also a sucker for old metal star colanders. I found this one last weekend. I think this probably makes about 7 now (and counting). I think when I paint the kitchen I want to do a big grouping of them on one wall.

That's the sort of stuff I daydream about on Fridays- when I'm drained.

Good Morning Sweetie...
I am so thrilled to see someone else that collects these darn colanders. I have several star ones myself. It is an addiction. Hello my name is Sherry, and I love star colanders. And now, I have found someone else out there that does also. I love it sweetie.

Thank you for sharing with me today. Yes this week has been very long, and I am so grateful to be OFF today. Yippee.

Have a beautiful restful Friday. Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

I have one colander like yours and I found it a few months ago at a thrift. I love it and brought it home to be beautiful somewhere..on the wall sounds good. Hope you have a good weekend.

I'm drained too and happy it's Friday, but I'm loving that star colander! I can see it now all filled with fresh strawberries ready for washing and eating!

Love this colander. I feel drained on Fridays as well. I have to say that I think about grouping things on walls virtually every day of the week!

I just found one of these while thrifting for .75 cents. Love em too!

Gosh someone found for .75, I saw one yesterday for 9.00 and I said nope...too much to use in my flower bed. Still looking though. What is the most you pay for those items.
