My new crocks, washboard, butter paddle, masher and cheese cloth curtains...
Good afternoon all, I have posted some pics of the things that have been collecting and the cheese cloth curtains that I made. The curtains aren't fancy, lol but they do the trick. Until my husband can put a proper rod up on the door ( it's a steel door), I looped the twine through the holes that were in my mini blind brackets and flipped the material over the twine and tied them back on either side. Now seeing how dirty the door is, I really need to repaint it, lol. Anyhow, I did find some goodies and the butter churner was from here, that someone had put outside when we moved in. The lid was very rusty so I spray painted it and it's as good as new! I am slowly adding to my crock collection :) Now to figure out where to display all of these lovely things! I'm trying to figure out how to get the pictures up under where I posted so for now they are at the bottom of the page. This is just a quick post, I'm waiting for my 7 yr old daughter to picked up to to a friends for a play date. I'm sure I'll be back later tonight to fiddle around with my setup here. Thanks for stopping by and following!
I am a stay at home mom of 5 children and I am married to my wonderful husband James for almost 9 years. We live on a 75 acre farm in the rolling hills of Kendal, Ontario which has been in my husband's family since the mid 1880's. Our house is over 150 yrs old and I love it! We have 3 dogs, 3 cats, 1 horse,1 hamster, and numerous chickens and ducks. Life is never dull around here to say the least. I love antiques and the simpler way of life and I have a interest in Prim Decor which is slowly but surely taking over my home. I also dabble in candle making. soap making and prim crafts but I have alot to learn.
My motto is ;
I BELIEVE, MIRACLES DO HAPPEN!, since our 9 yr old son was born with a rare genetic disorder called Hurlers Syndrome/ MPS1 in which he received a bone marrow transplant at the age of 11 months old to slow down the progression of his disease... during this time he was so ill that he was not expected to recover and come home with us... BUT HE DID!! And against all odds, he is still with us today :) So Believe That Miracles Can Happen!!
