I love the milk glasses and pitcher that came from my parents. I think for me inheriting all these treasures makes me feel like I have them a bit longer. It brings me joy!
Old egg basket took some work digging out of the dirt.
Galvanized chicken feeder holds a nice collection of bottles and dishes.
Locker was my sisters. She is not a hoarder like me! Good for me. If she doesnt have room she doesnt have room. If I dont have room I make it!
Old box used for storage. Maybe a paint job sometime in the future.
Again a shabby piece my sister had no space for. I put it in the bathroom!
Old railroad lanterns hanging in my dads shop for many years. One is penny's but I brought it home to clean and wait for her to come and get one! I have been out of batteries for the camera so have been a very bad blogger lately. Oh how I missed it. Hope you enjoy your day! Blessings Pam p.s. Thanks Heidi and Bev for coming to visit last week. It was so good for the ego! I assured my family who continue to think I have to much junk that they thought I just be published in a magazine!
My beautiful flowers from my daughter and her boyfriend..
This made me cry when I opened it. Londyn made it for me and waited a couple of weeks to give it to me. The excitement on her face when she gave it to me made my heart melt.
A trip to the coast with my mom a few years ago. Oh I miss you so much.. Yesterday was tough but no worse than any other day for me really..
My beautiful mother in law Opal. I miss her dearly too. She was the kindest most loving mother in law I could of ever expected. To see the love between my two moms was so genuine. They use to hold hands. I bet they are holding hands again in heaven.
My granddaughter on the right Londyn. Her first soccer practice Saturday. So fun to watch. Hope you all have a wonderful week... Blessings Pam
Mother's Day weekend has started off right. I have won twice in the last two days and am very thankful. I am sure you are getting tired of hearing about my family losses but for me this Mother's Day I am struggling with. I miss my mama so so much. I have to work Mother's Day and I know the tears will come as I see daughters bringing their mother's in for the special day.. Anyways these little gestures always cheer me up. I spend a lot of time on the computer probably way to much! It does pay off. I entered a giveaway on facebook for a Mother's Day necklace and I won! We have drawn the winner for our LUCKY MOM giveaway! CONGRATULATIONS TO PAM BALLARD !!
The winner's of the spaces in my Santos cage doll e-course are...
She taught herself how to make these dolls a few years ago, when she really wanted one, but couldn't afford to buy one. I am excited about this online course. So there you have it. I feel very blessed. I am off to do a few things around the house and than hopefully a chic flick in waiting for me! Hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day! I am also very excited to go watch Londyn's first soccer practice tomorrow morning. Blessings Pam
This buffet was a piece of my moms collection.. I scoped it out while doing a sweep upstairs. Now the top is shot.. Kinda bummed about that. The wood is coming up in a few spots. Hoping someday to find someone that might be able to re-do.. But any table linen works just fine. Started to give it some oil. Will continue to shine it up in my spare time. My husband was a little worried about space and I assured him I could find room. I told him I could use it for all the what nots I have sitting around to store them in! I really don't have much in the dark wood, except an old radio that was my dear mother in laws. Most everything is white, but I think a little dark wood looks nice too! What beautiful weather we are having... I love it! Hope your week starts off good! Blessings Pam
Londyn loves to shop with Gammy! She wanted this apron a couple of weeks ago and I just kinda blew her off. She had a little melt down about it.. What I didn't realize is that I wear one to work everyday and she wanted one so she could be like Gammy. Can you believe they have a gift shop at the post office with several vendors. So of course every time I go there I have to look around... Yesterday she was with me and it was the day she got her apron... hard to see but it has butterflies on it. Only $5.00 so who could say no to this. We are going to cook in aprons today as she is spending the night with Gammy and Pampa. Jordan's girlfriend passed away in December at a very young age leaving behind two small children. She was due to marry this day! So her mom kept this date to have a memorial for her. Jordan will spend the day celebrating her friend Amanda Peck! Going to be very warm today. Oh I have such a list to accomplish, off to start. Blessings Pam
Collecting quite a few mason jars, and insulators. First time I have seen purple ones. So pretty.
Old plates, silverware, bottles and insulators seem to be my thing right now! Well along with anything galvanized.. Oh I could have worse habits right? Hope your enjoying this beautiful weather. Tomorrow is Wed already! Blessings Pam
I sure love my porch but boy do I have alot of stuff! The column to the left I posted awhile back. It was in my dads shop! Galvanized container was on the truck to go to metals. I grabbed it up. Been getting hen and chicks from my moms place and my sisters. I am loving lots of greenery this year!
I love galvanized things... I would love a huge laundry room for these tubs that were dug out of the property. Need to clean them up.
My brother keeps looking at me as he would just haul off. Although he told me yesterday that he has twenty years on me and if he was younger he would be bringing it home too! He just doesn't want to deal with it!
These cherub handles were in my moms antique room they are heavy and way cool. Don't you think?
It is great that their is 6 of us kids and we all have different taste. With the exception of my sister Teresa. Her and I always seem to like the same things
I love this crystal bowl. It was in my moms room also. Most of these things have been there for many years. I have no idea how old they are. If any of you know about them please let me know. This dish above it either turning color or is a little lavender color to it.
Okay maybe I should rethink some of the things I am bringing home but the pink flamingo is way cool. It has a light in the back. I took it off and ran this through the dishwasher. Who knows how long I will keep it. It was in the garage sale pile.
Added another suitcase to the pile.
I even snagged some musty old pillows. But I love the ticking on them.
Better shot of the adding machine I got also. I love the front of it.
More pretty dishes.
This picture struck a nerve with me! Don't know anything about it. Just that it was mom's. That is was old and no one showed interest in it. The sun has shined all weekend. I love it. However with the sun comes the notion that I must accomplish three weeks work in two days. I am exhausted and headed for a bath and movie. Have had little time to post right now but we are hoping to be done with parents property in June so that we can have some summer. Tomorrow I will devote my entire attention after work to my granddaughter Londyn who deserves it... Blessings Pam
