My Husband has a Secret

I went to check the mail yesterday.  I am terrible about checking our mail.  I get to it about once a week and then find that the mailman has stuffed everything inside to the best of his ability.  Lo and behold, I had nine catalogs.  That's a lot, even for me.  However, one of them had my husband's name on it.  No, it wasn't the 2011 Craftsman Tools catalog or even the Harbor Freight Christmas Special catalog.  Somehow, the catalog fairies must have confused my big ol redneck husband with a uber creative decorating type she man. 

The catalog was from At West End
I had never heard of them before but I fell in love with so many of their rustic and recycled home decor items.  I could not believe how great their prices were.  Like:

This adorable set of owls for $35.00
Or how about these cast iron laughing boys for $45?

How cute are these cast iron owl parts that you can put on your fruits and veggies for 15?

Beautiful blown bubble glass vessels for $32?

Colorful bud vases for $19 each.

I love these recycled glass angels for $19.



Know someone who enjoys cigars?  This would make a great Christmas gift for $35.

This is probably one of my favorites.  It a flying pig door stop for $42.

How awesome is this big iron bell?

I love cast iron.  I know you're thinking "Holly, the prices are great but shipping cast iron would cost a fortune!"  Hate to tell you this but you are wrong mistaken.  Shipping is only $5, any order, any size!  They also have a lot of Christmas items that are very cute.

Check them out if you get a chance.

You know how folks will say "when pigs fly" to document when they will finally get around to doing something or believing in something? I need one of those flying pigs! Too cute.

Just found your blog via Mabel's house, and was delighted to see all of those owls. My grandmother collected owls for years....she would have loved that trio!

I'm with you on the cast iron. We have a few cast iron pieces in our house, including a little painted dog and some Victorian-inspired floor grates. Not only are they attractive, but they are also very sturdy!

I am a little partial to the recycled paper wine bags
