Hello everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful day! I know of 33 men who had an especially wonderful day! I have been watching the television coverage of the miners in Chile and thank God they are all now out alive! God bless each one of them and their families! God Bless all of the rescue workers as well!, they are all above ground safely now too! A very emotional day for everyone.
I thought I would share some treasures that my Mom and Dad brought to me while they were visiting last weekend. Lots of great family treasures that I will always cherish!
These fabulous green/blue Ball canning jars. I just love the color~
This Coffee, Tea and Spice Set. LOVE these and they are so special. They were my Great Grandmothers. Such a keepsake~
Original galvanized lids~
This crock that also belonged to my Great Grandmother~
Here are the markings on the bottom~
There is nothing like receiving wonderful antiques with great sentimental meaning behind them. I am so honored to have them passed down to me and I will take care of them, display them proudly and pass them down to our children someday! Thanks so much Mom and Dad, I love you!
Next, I want to share some handmade baskets that I ordered from Pam They are beautiful! I have one of her larger shaker cheese baskets. I wanted one of the smaller 9 inch shaker cheese baskets. It is as cute as can be and SO well made! Pam is one talented gal!
A closer look~
I also got this weed basket in black (the one on the left)~
I am so happy with both of them Pam and I will enjoy using them for ALL the different seasons! Thank you!
And my last FUN new goodies! I went to get my hair cut today. My gal has a salon in her home. And lining the walkway to her door were these amazing cement leaves!! Yes, I said CEMENT LEAVES! Her Mom makes them! They are fabulous, heavy but fabulous! I bought a large one to put on top of our birdbath, she said you can use the birdbath as a stand for them. And put water or bird seed in them. You can also just rest the large leaves in the rocks too, so as you can see..I haven’t made up my mind yet!
I haven’t put it out in the rock garden yet. I will do that tomorrow, but I just had to show it to all of you now.
They are made out of real HUGE leaves that she impresses into the cement. Then paints them and covers them with a protective coating. The detail is just incredible!
I also got a smaller leaf that sits on a small iron stand.
I just can’t believe the “vein-ing”. Not sure what I am going to do with this one. My hairstylist just had some little wrapped candies in hers. I might do a candle and some acorns. But I am not sure I want to cover up all of that detail. Stay tuned, I will show you both leaves when I get them displayed!
That is all I have to share for today. Lots of photos in this post too, what can I say…I have gone photo happy lately! Time for me to get off of the computer and work on some laundry. I keep waiting, but i just isn’t going to wash itself.
Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate all of my followers/friends and all of your sweet comments so much! Stop by anytime!!
Until next time, take care.
