Hubby and I took a trip into town on wednesday
to get a few much needed things and I spied a family flea market/yard sale sign!
We whipped the truck around in the bank parking lot
and much to my suprise it was starting on wednesday!
That was unusual.... most sales run thursday thru saturday up here!
I have to show you the goodies I found
I can't get enough of them...
I love to have one in front of every chair!
I saw this lil treasure and knew it was coming home with me...
and at 5$ I was feeling pretty happy to give it a new home!
Its very comfy and sturdy... and vintage!!!
of what the tapestry looked like when it was new....
augh....I love the worn, faded, well loved look it has now!
love those sweet lil cottages
are the perfect accents for above a picture or mirror!
I plan to paint them first!
Hmmm.. maybe white with the rose pink...
or creamy white then antiqued...
or just white and shabbied up here and there!
What do you think????
The only syrup mum bought was Mrs. Buttersworth!
She never talked to us though...
When I saw this sweet lil bottle she finally talked to me...
she said "buy me buy me"!!!
Look how cute she is.....
I just love her...even with her chips and dings!
Now she stands proud in our kitchen ....
When I look at her she makes me smile....
I can hear her whisper....
I love to can all of our veggies that we grow in our garden...
there is no reward better then opening a jar of tomatoes
in the middle of january
and they smell as fresh as the day you picked them!
I leave you now with this lil saying on the back of the canning book
How to preserve a husband
"Be careful in your selection.
Do not choose too young.
When once selected give your entire thought to preparation for domestic use.
Some insist on keeping them in a pickle, others are constantly getting them in hot water.
This makes them sour, hard and sometimes bitter.
Even poor varieties may be made sweet, tender and good by garnishing them with patience, well sweetened with love and seasoned with kisses!
Wrap them in a mantle of charity.
Keep warm with a steady fire of domestic devotion and serve with peaches and cream!
Thus prepared they will keep for years!"
