Simple Ramblings From A Prim Cottage

Tuesday Pick

 It's been so hot here in PA I just want to hide in the AC. I send hubby to get me a frappee and he calls and says he has to go look at some wood and tools this guy wants to get rid of/I say well we don't really need wood or tools but go look.Well come to find out his grandparents owned a general store and it was antique printed boxes and barrels and such.So this is the pile hubby brought home.The guy says he has 2 more loads to bring down.He gave him a really fair price.Hubby said he has some really wonderful stuff but the guy wants to check to see if his dad wants any of it like the mercantile scales,large 12 gallon blue decorated crocks,counter jars and such...Now I'm going out to help hubs clean everything ...
 I'm being good I'm only keeping the grey crock by the the milk box and this.....
I've been looking 2 years for a box like this that was in my price range so now I've finally got one ( Walker Baker Co with Lady).Eventually the right things find you.Everything else will go to market ...Well girls hope you all are staying cool.I'm dreaming of Fall (but I guess I'm always thinking of fall..smile..) Warm Blessings!~Amy

Oh, Amy, what goodness!!! Yep, patience is the word but not easy to have (at least for me) but it pays off!!!!

We've been having a nice relief from the heat but tomorrow it's back on :( YUCK!!

I'm with you--only I'm dreaming of winter. Only 3 more months to go in this miserable heat (No AC at my home) and then the irrigation water is turned off so we know it is fall and soon winter/snow. (I hope) I am so pleased for you that you found the box you have been looking for!! You have great will power to let everything go to market!

Lisa Diane said...

WOW, Amy!! What a terrific find, and to think you might get MORE....! Oooh, I'm so envious about that gray crock, too!! :-D

I hope your weather has cooled down by now. We've been cloudy and rainy for over a month now, and it's been so yucky -- I'm dreaming of Fall too! LOL

Enjoy, dear friend!!! :-)
