Here are some of my treasures.
She was an excellent homemaker and always had a huge garden and canned everything. This was one of her jars and some of her huge collection of pearls. I've always said it was possible to wear pearls even with a little dirt under your fingernails. She was a perfect example of that. And she always wore a perfectly ironed apron -- that she had made.
This handmade box must have been her son's. It has the most wonderful hand painting on it and was apparently, what held his Boy Scout "stuff". It's amazing folk art.
Loved the old suitcases. The white shelf is an old handmade bucket bench that you can tell had been well used. They always had lots of chickens so I imagine that she kept her buckets on here for feeding the chicks.
It was a beautiful day and came home with a good feeling about the sale. There were so many of our family there and everyone went home with remembrances of Aunt Lillian & Uncle Elz.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week. I'm off to work at Leola's.
