Well, here is my Fraidy Cat related post. A dear friend of mine, who has registered as jaesere (she hasn't made any posts yet), crocheted me the most magnificent thing! I was telling her how obsessed I was with Cinnamon Bear and how I couldn't find any black cats anywhere. (I'm collecting the likenesses of the characters.) She surprised me with the most beautiful perfect Fraidy Cat one could ever ask for!! Isn't she so talented?

That's wonderful! She has some talent indeed, not just the technical part of it, but in character creation!

That's what I said! The cat even looks jittery and fraidy! Haha

That cat is awesome. Love the face. Reminds me a bit of my dear grandma who use to crochet teddy bears and all sorts of items.

I still miss my grandma and think of her often. Anyway, she liked junk too. I stopped at the Goodwill in the next town while I was out doing stuff today and Holy Cow! look at this sign I got. It's 3 feet by 2 and a half feet and metal, rather heavy too.

I'm either going to take a bunch of other signs down in the kitchen and put it up or put it on a cabin in our yard. I used to rent it eons ago, but now the power and water aren't to it anymore, due to changes by the City and us, but anyway, it would look good in the yard, we are putting in an old french door on the cabin and had to do some other stuff to it. It's definitely way beyond shabby chic the old cabin and I like it.

Oh the sign

Thank you, it's more than perfect for me because I do like coffee, a lot. :D

Wonderful find! I like anything having to do with coffee, too, especially if it's vintage.

Good pickins eh! The first place I head at that Goodwill is the pictures/art. I have been astounded more than a few times in that area. Well when I found this huge sign mixed in I couldn't believe it. I do feel a bit bad about the old coot I had to shove out of the way to get it first. But hey! :mrgreen:

It's pretty new, but looks old, I'm keeping it in the house, it's on the wall above the stove. And it's is hysterically big, but we both like it. I can hardly wait for my Aunt to stop by, she likes that Goodwill store too. This sign was only $9.99

"Oh hey I got a great coffee sign at the Goodwill, come see if you can spot it in the kitchen." :o :shock: :lol:
