They sure made things to last back then.
I have a guest room!!!

A long-ago friend of mine was moving from OH to NY and was getting rid of a number of her things. I got a great deal on her antique 6-piece barristers' cabinet - four book units plus a base and cap. One of my best steals, and Kim thought she got a good price too. Win-win!
Two days after I picked up my bed, she sold another iron bedstead...to my mother. Not as fancy as mine though!

Best thing I got though, is my new desk. It belonged to my Great-Grandmother, I have my computer set up on it!

That's wonderful, and you'll get to enjoy it every day! I'd have loved to have some of my greats' furniture, but it's still in the family so that's a good thing. I feel really fortunate to have some of my great grandmother's pictures and some of her vases, purple glass, and china in my cabinet.

This made me smile.
My little grandson Tyler turned 5 last month, and today was his 'meet and greet' with his new teacher at his new school. He starts Kindergarten next week, and was so excited to show her what a big boy he is, and how much he's learned in preschool and at home with his momma.

My mother had a complete Hoosier cabinet. I loved that cabinet. My father kept it and I don't know what happened to it when he died. I wish I had kept track of it. I would have loved to have it today. It was complete. Even the flour bin was just as it was when new.

Cheryl, that's so cute! Looks like Tyler might need a little step-stool to reach any higher though.

Isn't it nice to have that touchstone to your past? I love working with so many of my Mom's kitchen tools, sitting in my Grandma's porch rocker, using a hand tool that used to be my Dad's. It's like a little bit of them is back in my life, you know? You can bet your Grandma will be watching you type and making sure you sit up straight.

I'm sure some would disagree, but he managed to convince his publisher in New York...

This is a pretty interesting article about new findings at Jamestown, site of the first permanent English colony in America. It's about an hour northwest of me: http://www.slate.com/articles/health...n_to_four.html

Last night I went to go to bed and found my side taken up by a big brown dog and a tiny black cat. TB was already asleep and the two fur-kids were beside each other on my side. They both looked up at me like "we got here first".

I picked Monkey up and moved her to beside TB's feet where she usually sleeps and nudged Violet over best I could to crawl in beside her.

As much as I would love to get mad at them, they always seem to put a smile on my face!
