Happy Mother's Day and Weekend Finds

 Just wanted to stop in and wish everyone a Happy Mother's Day! Even though I'm not a momma,hubby and I have raised several children through the years.So I do know the joys and sometimes sorrow of having children underfoot......Ok really? It's been a week since I posted.Well this is my busy season.We have gotten a huge garden planted out at grandma's farmhouse but I haven't got my kitchen garden planted at home yet.Been working in the yard some.Between treasure hunting and market I haven't had much time to breath....We found so many wonderful things this week but I didn't take pics of the stuff that is going tomorrow like a double basin antique wash tub, antique would benches that have wonderful chippy paint in red,green and black and they are different sizes so they stack nicely was so tempted to keep, Antique ironing board, and some other treasures.Hubby found a antique double door cupboard in old deep blue paint I didn't even have to beg for it.He said as he was loading it don't worry that's a house piece were not selling it..I'll get pics once he unloads it from the truck...Ok so here is the stuff I'm keeping or thinking about....
 Wonderful antique carrier and old mohair dog..Yes his fur is loved off but too sweet!
Antique Large Blue salt glaze stoneware bowl.Not sure if I'm keeping...The sweet angel is a swap I did with my sister in law Jean (primcrafts blog)
 Antique Jam Crock with original label not sure if I'll keep.
 Tiny old bench.It's actually a mustard color and small 1/4 galllon crock the crock I'll probly sell but I have alot of crocks for market right now so till some sell I'll keep..
Large wood dough bowl and Iron shears with heart handles.I have them in the keep pile but if I don't find a place today they'll go..It's hard sometimes to get rid of but I don't like clutter and already have my  hoarding       I mean computer room stacked...Thanks girls for all your lovely comments about dad.We are just so happy to be able to move forward with every day life.Hopefully the next scan will remain cancer free....I had some questions on a few post but no email to get back to you so if you want you can email me and I'll get back to you.Well hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Warm Blessings!~Amy

Well for starters I cannot wait to see the cupboard. I am a cupboard collector.lol I love the tote, the dog and those sheep shears look just like my grandpa's. I gave them to my son. I have several friends who have no children of their own. However like you, they have nurtured and helped so many children, they have treated as their own. You don't have to give birth to be a Mother. Happy Mothers Day Amy.

Sweetie...just cause you didn't 'birth' them kiddos...doesn't mean you aren't a mama. So happy Mama's Day to you too!

I want, I want, I want!!! You come home with the coolest dang stuff!!! Can't even begin to pick a favorite....(but I am lovin' Jean's doll something fierce...) ;o) Happiest of Mother's Days to you - you have the heart and soul of a mother, and that's all that counts. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Can't wait to see your blue cupboard! Your other finds are just great! I would find it hard to part with most of them..... :)

Happy Mother's Day to you! Hope it's a great day for your whole family!

...Oh my goodness, such lovely items you've found! Can't wait to see the cupboard too! Old Cupboard + Old Blue Paint = *swoons* :o)

...Sending a prayer your way that your Father will remain cancer free for always.

...You are way ahead of me on the gardening my friend. I've been harvesting strawberries but I don't have anything planted so that'll be next on my agenda soon.

...I also want to say 'thank you' for your sweet sentiment over at my place recently. Your words mean more than you'll ever know.

...Wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day! I'm a Mom to the furry type of children and that counts for something right? ;o)

...Enjoy your day!

...Blessings :o)

As I always say blood does not make you a mom! Its the love and time. Happy belated Mom's Day to you.

Once again you have some great finds. I still cannot imagine how difficult it is to find what you will keep and sell. I know I would just want to keep it all and then probably be on the show hoarders lol.

Theresa said...

Beautiful goodies Amy!!! Happy Belated Mother's Day!!!

jody said...

Hi Amy, Love all your treasures. I'm like you....keep some, sell some until there is too much then you've got to do the trade off :)

Thanks for your kind words and prayers for my dad. He's slowly getting better but so stubborn sometimes. I'm glad all is well with your dad. I've been away from the computer for a few weeks and missed a few posts. Such good news and what a relief!

Thanks for being so kind always. Wishing you a lovely day and week ahead.

Warm hugs ~ Jenn

p.s. ....did you get your kitchen garden in yet? I'm in the same boat here. Hopefully today if the sun comes out!
