Grocery Shopping

Here is my favorite of all the tin creatures. Mom is grocery shopping with her baby girl in the cart child seat. Their bodies are both tin cans. Notice baby's teaspoon legs dangling, wrench hands, and tea infuser head. Mom is clutching the cart handle with fork hands, and her hair is curlicued strips of metal.



The odds of going to the store for a loaf of bread and coming out with only a loaf of bread are three billion to one. ~Erma Bombeck

Oh wow, I love this. It's totally adorable. I used to actually have that Hershey kiss container that they used for the moms body.
This is just so clever.

Oh, my, I so love this. And so love the quote from Erma....that could be reworded for me to say the odds of going in to Walmart and coming out with only what I went for are one to a million.

Oh wow, what a fantastic creation! I love it! I love their adorable faces :-)
Love the quote - it's very true! And going to store for bread and coming out without bread happens more than I like :-)

Hi Ginny, it was so nice to see you in my comments. . . Yep, it's a mixed mush of a lot of color and a lot of creative projects on display, but it's all fun and it's all me. I love my Barn, thanks for visiting :) That's a great quote from Erma Bombeck and so true, LOL
Wishing you a wonderful day.
Connie :)

someone has a very creative mind, to be able to see these creations even before he/she begins to make them.
