Yumminess and a few Barn Finds

Well it's been pouring rain here in PA since sunday eve and is supposed to continue threw friday.We've got at least 12 inches lost count.It's been cool as well so I'm slowly getting my fall decorating out.Today I'm going to make slippery chicken pot pie and stay home.There are alot of state of emergencies in surrounding towns due to flooding so they advise staying home if possible.Dad has his surgery today to remove the tumor so I want to stay close to the phone.The road that leads to the next town is flooded out,I could go the other way but he said he really doesn't want visitors till friday.He said he'll be out of it and will just want to rest....New yummy addiction..Well really can only eat one at a time.... Chocolate Peanut Butter Smores

  • Chocolate graham cracker with a little creamy peanut butter

  • Piece of a hershey bar

  • Marshmellow

  • I leave the top off and push it on after I take it out of the microwave

  • microwave about 20 seconds...Mmmmmmm

So with the rain I haven't been outside much to clean up my barn finds but here is a few of the finds....Hawthorn Pa crock...

Huge Sky Plane sled..old wicker flower basket in chippy green paint...galvanized milk bucket..

I also got milk bottles,the sign.alot of chicken feeders and waters,hay hooks,old bottles, scales you know just old stuff you'd find on a farm..smile...I hope to get in the back barn yet but with the rain and the overgrowth I might have to wait till spring....Hope you all are having a good week.I'll share my fall decorating soon.Can't wait to see everyone's displays.Warm Blessings!~Amy

First off Amy I must say I love your header picture. Very prim and pretty.

Saying a prayer for your dad for a speedy and complete recovery. I hope you are able to get out and see him tomorrow without too much trouble.

Great goodies you got there girl. I love the crock and sled. I need some new crocks myself. One can never have too many you know.

Your Smore looks good but I will stick with the regular ones. They are one of my most favorite campfire treats!

Enjoy your day!
Hugs ~AMY~

Hi Amy,

Sending wishes for a successful surgery for your Dad and hope he recovers very quickly.

Yummo on those smores, heck, maybe that'll be my lunch...but I don't have chocolate grahams..

We have been under cloudy skies here for days but have been so fortunate with the rain, we are just enough west that we haven't got much.

Stay safe and sending you hugs,

Here's a {{hug}} x 2....(one for you and one for your dad).

I'm wishing with every fiber of my being that these next few days will fly by. I'm wishing that once the next few days are ticked off the calendar life will find you and your father both returning to a newly discovered routine and normalacy.
Keep us posted on how he's doing...

What WONderFUL barn finds! Can't wait to see them each and every treasure as you have time to share.

Till then stay safe, stay warm amid all the flooding and worrysome road travel!

First my prayers go out to your father Amy. Second luv smore's...and those look dee-lish. The farms finds are awesome too! Thanks for squeezing me in on the swap...believe it or not, I already knew my partner. She and her husband visited our store a few months back! What a small world. Take care, Janice

Hi Amy,
I'll be thinking positive thoughts for your father. I hope he is already recovering nicely.
Love the sled you found. That has lots of possibilities!
The smore recipe looks so good it could be considered dangerous :O
Have a nice weekend!

Hi Amy! I haven't been over to visit in months. I'm so very behind on my blog reading but now I am following through Google Reader and it is so much easier to catch up. So I hope to stay caught up with all your prim findings! =]

Sorry to hear about your dad. I will be praying for him, for you, and the rest of the family.

Mmmm... the smores look delicious! I think I just found a new favorite snack, yum! I will be pinning this to my board. I saw your Pinterest button on your sidebar and was SO excited to find your awesome boards!! Yes, pinning is so stinkin' addicting. =] So now not only am I your newest Pinterest follower, but I also discovered your Etsy shop and have added you to my circle. I have just started mine recently and already neglecting it... UGH! Gotta get off Pinterest and get busy with Etsy, lol.

Looking forward to seeing all your fall decorating... my very favorite time to decorate!!

Nice to catch up with you after all these months and looking forward to staying in touch with you. Have a delightful week~

I love all your finds! Thanks for coming by for a visit! I know I will never have a home that is magazine worthy, and that's alright, I just get flustered sometimes, you know? LOL! I hope the rest of your weekend is as sweet as you are!
