True Colors Thursday - Black

Our True Colors challenge this week was to find something unusual and black.

One of our Nanny's friends gave us this black cast iron antique sausage stuffer years ago.
We think that's pretty unusual!
It weighs a ton and sits in our fireplace pit. We've never used it.  Mom says she thinks it's missing the crank handle.

Molly has her feets tangled up in a black antique flat iron~

See you all next Thursday.

Love ya lots,
Molly and Mitch

Great black and unusual item!! I love how she wraps her feet up in it!

Dexter said...

And of course Miss Molly herself who is still a little black dale yet to grow into her saddle.

Momma is all SQUEEEE over your header photo.


Gus said...

We love the Miss Molly picture. She looks like she is getting some cool breezes by letting her leg prop up on the iron.

Great choices


Eileen said...

Unusual black items. Good idea to use the flat iron as a door stop.
Molly is looking cute as always :-)

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

Great finds! Thanks for explaining what it was. We wouldn't have had a clue about the first item.

Oh we love the antique items. We have old flat irons sitting at every door and in front of our fireplace.

Oh my, the header is so sweet!!!

Little Molly is a true darling girl, isn't she?

I like your findings, they are truly unusual and I like that little fluffy black and tan girl a lot too.

Black would be an easy peasy color for us -- computer, stove, desk, lampshades --- and most important of all - Just Harry's jacket!!!

But you picked some unusual items.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

We are partial to black here, too.

That is so cool. It is just like the one My Vickie found in this little log cabin she came across on one of her hikes.

She wished she could carry it back home cause it is an antique or something like that.

You guys are so lucky to have one. And Molly sure looks cute sleeping with her feet in it.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Your new header is so gorgeous, that it brought happy tears to our eyes!
The sausage stuffer is perfect for the color black.
Is there any sausages in it?

KB said...
