Coffee Pot Collection Re-do ~ Sadie Update
Almost a year ago, I shared my antique coffee pot collection.
This year, I decided it was time to use them or lose them.
The blue one we take camping, and the kids have used it for backyard friend camp-outs. We've also used it during power outages. So that one stays put, or in the camper itself.
The red one is now a flower vase. I love fresh flowers in the house. They just add so much beauty, and I do think it affects the overall mood levels here too.
The shorter white one now holds my indoor basil plant in the kitchen window. Hubby and I bought this one on one of our island getaways.
A small creamer is now a pencil holder. It could also hold crafting supplies such as crochet hooks or paint brushes.
The painted coffee pot is now a flower vase in one bathroom. Yep, fresh flowers in the "flush" room (as my kids call it).
One large one is being used to hold grilling tools. It's in on a shelf (out of sight) until grilling season starts. Then we just garb it and go to the porch. These tools are typically too long to store in a kitchen drawer. I have a few hangers on the grill, but not enough.
I'm still working on the remaining three (and leftover parts).

Yesterday, my plans to film Sadie playing in the snow came to a halt. In fact, when I collected eggs, she laid down in the snow and rain and would not follow me inside. It alerted us, and mid-afternoon my oldest two daughters drove her to the emergency vet (Sadie's gums were almost white).
The vet determined a bit of bleeding, and sent her home, as she was perking up and regaining color while there. Oldest Daughter is monitoring her for the next few days.
Prior to this, she had been doing great.
