Hi ya Friends...
This is a catch-up post of sorts..new treasures to share
I was the lucky winner of a FB giveaway hosted by Mary Flanagan
I received this beautiful "Token of Friendship" sampler hand done by Mary
it is a Notforgotten Farm design
Thank You Mary..I love it!
Purchased this super crock jug on Ebay last week, it's not old but I love the blues
Yesterday my neighbor friend and I went to do a lil' pickin'
when we set out in the morning it was just another day of garage sales..
t-shirt, jeans and flip flops were my chosen attire for the day
Well, I should have worn my mud boots...cause by the time I arrived home, I had mud between my toes, LOL
So let me explain...at one of the sales I spotted a beautiful..falling down Sugar Shack
no camera but I had my phone so I had to take a picture
(can't seem to get the photo from phone to email:(
Hey, it finally showed up
that picture led to peeking in the door..and spotting an old sign
that led to hunting down the old man that owned the property
which led to asking if said sign was for sale
the answer.."yes"..."everything is for sale, I'm never going to use it"
~OH HEAVENS to BETSY~wrong answer, kind sir
so, that "yes"...
led me to enter said Shanty to retrieve sign and finding
Yesterday I turned -& American Picker
I found an old trapping basket, two 5 gal. buckets full of old traps, the sign,
and a fabulous old cast iron stove front
made right here in Warren County...the pat. dates are 1893-1909
notice the awesome "Keystone State" symbol
Needless to say...the back of my trailblazer was packed full
Also found a whole bunch of Chicken Feeders and Water'ers, and lots of smalls at other sales
So now, my porch (the one I'm trying to clean off) is once again full of "stuff"..treasured stuff though ;)
