The Happy Little Hedgehog

I wasn't planning on doing any fall decorating on the bar area of my kitchen, as it's usually the dumping ground when we come in the house. Remember this post? But then I went to Goodwill this week...and I found this happy little hedgehog for 50 cents.

I knew she would make me smile if I put her front and center on my bar so I could see her cheery little face as I do the dishes. How do I know she is a girl?  Just look at the lipstick she is wearing ;-)
Not wanting her to get knocked off or covered up by junk important papers, I put her safely under a cloche on this pretty plate. I added a few twigs and some fall leaves along with the little pumpkin candle (also 50 cents). My sweet mom brought the plate out to me this week when she came to town for a visit. 
Is she just the cutest thing, or what? I love being greeted by her smile each time I clean up after a meal here in the kitchen. I know it's a little kitschy, but I couldn't help myself. Do you have something near the kitchen sink that brings a smile and makes your work go a little easier? I hope so.  Have a wonderful weekend!

I'm linking up at some of these great parties and


  1. Nici,
    Love your little Hedge-Hog, it's so cute. Your bar area sounds just like mine. I can clean it off and within a day or two it's stacked right back. It's everyone's dumping ground here too.
