Memorial Day Remembrance

As we go about this official start of Summer let us all take a moment of remembrance for those who served and are in service to our freedom. We may not all agree with the way the country is going but we must be thankful for the men and women who still believe that this country and it's people are worth fighting and dying for. God Bless America and the armed forces that proudly serve.Take a moment to thank them not just this day but everyday.

 Such sweetness buried in a box stuffed under a table.. Treasure to me.. Love!
Off to market to sell some wares. Supposed to be a beautiful day. Picking up my momma some flowers there and found a vintage figurine she collects and going to make a plant stake out of it for her.We'll all be sitting out sipping sweet tea at Grandma's old farmhouse enjoying the warm weather and family Hope you all have a blessed and wonderful weekend! Happy Mother's Day to all the moms!~Amy

Picking and Chit Chat

Well we have been out searching every week and even had a few private home picks (my favorites don't feel rushed) Market is in season so alot of stuff gone already.And off again this morning. Here are a few recent finds...
Love the color of this bike it even has it's original plane on the front fender.Hubby has since cleaned this up and it looks almost new..It's off to market this week.
Very rare late 1940's penny scale. It found it's new home and fits in perfectly..
This tempted me to keep but I let him go.Loved his wood articulated arms.His body was composition...
And some keepers.I try not to keep much but recently got rid of a few of my things so I kept a few..Beautiful antique stained glass window...
Yelloware advertising crock..I did good here found 3 different ones and only kept this one..smile..
Magic Yeast box loved the owl in the moon...
Old Bucket..
This I'm not sure about. The lady said it was a Ice cream mold but any that I've seen are heavy pewter or cast. This is Tin and big.I thought maybe a pudding mold but not sure.I can't find anything quit like it yet.So let me know your thoughts...
Well I've been a little stressed lately.My dad is getting married which upsets me.The lady already tells people she is my mom.She and my dad have only have known each other about 4 months.She pushed herself on him and is into all his business like trying to get him to get full disability for the cancer and looking into his pension from his job he had for 25 years (only me and his mom knew about this) plus she is trying to make him get her a car on his credit and use me as a reference. She does not let him answer the phone when I call and makes me call her cell and stays in the room the whole time.She has pushed and pushed him to marry.I think I want him happy but if you are really in love you can wait a year.She wants to be married in about 2 weeks.Plus a few times dad couldn't even remember her name.He has been single 20 years and she took full advantage of his easy going and kind nature.Plus for some reason she calls my house about 10 times a week and hangs up..I keep trying to get him alone to talk to him about this but she never wants to let him out of her sight.I know I don't know her well enough to pass judgement but I really just get a bad feeling around her.I'm not saying I'm not willing to give her a chance and get to know her better just wish she would back off a little and let me and dad have some time to talk. Believe me I want my dad to be happy and would never stand in his way just want to make sure he is not being pushed into something and want to make sure he is not taking advantage of... On a better note spring has finally arrived her and everything is blooming and green. I'm planning a small garden this year since hubby can't do as much with his back. Grandma has leased some of her land this year so we won't have as big of a family plot this year..Yep can't wait for strawberries,tomatoes and sweet corn..smile.. Sorry for the long post just wanted to explain my absence lately. Yes I am getting the summer swap together for my swappy girls.I'll get it posted in the next week.Hope all is well with you girls. Warm Blessings!~Amy
