Snow…what??…Yep, we are in for some snow. Hard to believe that not long ago we had temps around 70 degrees! Even our kiddos are not excited about the snow. But never-the-less, we dug out their heavy coats and hats and they headed off for school. I am guessing they won’t be having recess. The flags are flying straight out today…sooo windy and cold!!
I thought I would share a few more treasures that my Mom and Dad brought to me last weekend. I cannot tell you how happy I am to have these wonderful mementos. I will definitely display them, take good care of them and pass them down to our children. I am also SO glad that these items are in my possession and not sitting on some shelf in a Goodwill or antique store. I just couldn’t bear the thought of it!
This is a bowl that belonged to my Grandmother, my Mom’s Mother. I just LOVE the color and design of it.
It looks beautiful with the Ball jars my Mom also brought to me. You will notice that both of these things are in my blog header photo. New “old” favorites of mine!
My Mom says she remembers her Mother using this bowl all the time when she was little. Lots of goodies mixed up in it I bet.
Here is another treasure Mom and Dad brought with them. A McCoy planter. It is in perfect condition. Great green color!
Love the design on this too.
They also brought my school desk! This was in my bedroom when I was little. I am so happy to have it. Now my kids can use it!
Love the ink well and pencil groove.
I think the wear on the top gives it so much character.
Thank you Mom and Dad for sharing these special treasures with me. They are in good hands and will be shared and enjoyed for many more generations.
I need a hutch to hold everything! I want to display some of these things together in one place. My Mom has a hutch for me too that she says I can refinish any way I want. Now…we just have to get it to our house!
