Tobacco Stick Stars and more Goodies

After showing yall my tobacco sticks, someone suggested I make some stars....well I am way ahead of you girls! I made these a few weeks back. They are hanging on the doors of my pantry cabinet, oh I haven't shown you that before! I designed (that means I told him what to do) and my sweet husband made it for me. I have always wanted a pantry, but I have never had one. So we made one. I purchased the old doors for 10$. I keep my microwave, toaster oven and all my dry goods in there. No, you don't need to see in there. Anyway I will be making alot more stars....I want a huge one for my chimney and I already have some local ladies wanting some. Busy, busy...

Now I had to go to town today to restock at Walmart so....You know I had to make my thrift store rounds! Lookie Lookie!

I found a neat wood bowl on a pedestal, another round wood bowl, a little wood crate. some new candle molds, a pack of pipe cleaners (you never know when you might need those) 3 pie pans, a vintage sifter and masher. The plaid you see is a big wool skirt....next time you see it....it will be an ugly punkin!
Oh and last but not least the stitched table cloth that is laying underneath it all! Am I lucky or just good!


  1. great finds!!! i cant wait to see the pumpkin!!!

  2. Love the tobacco stick stars! I have a HUGE one leaning against my fence.

  3. I love your pantry with the old doors! I too have never ahd a pantry before. But a few years ago, I bought an old pie safe and I use that for my panty now. I love it!

    Great finds too! I think you are good AND lucky! :)

  4. LOL! I guess I need to pay closer attention to what I'm typing! That should read PANTRY and not panty! LOL!

    Oh well, at least I have probably made a lot of people laugh today! :)

  5. I love that sifter! You got some great stuff.

  8. I sure do love those stars! They look great on your pantry door! And I have to say that I love your idea of "designing"! You're my kind of girl! :)

  9. Wow...I want to go thrifting with you:) Your pantry looks great and the stars add so much. The tobacco sticks bring back a lot of memories...working to tobacco fields growing up was a lot of hard work...Today I do enjoy picking them up and crafting with them ;)

  16. I was looking for some ideas for using the thousands of tobacco sticks that we have and ran across your site. I can tell you like the same kind of things that I do. I am trying to downsize since moving into a new house, so I have a few old things that I need to find buyers for. Where would be a good place to start?

  17. I was looking for ways to use tobacco sticks and ran across your site. Do you have other ideas for tobacco sticks besides the stars? Also, I am downsizing since moving into a new house, so I have a few old things I need to sell. Do you have any ideas on where I could advertise them? As you can tell, I am new to all of this!
