Happy Memorial Day

Well my post is just not working for me today. My camera will not transfer the pictures I'd planned to post so I'll make do with some old favorites. I first want to say thankyou  to all of our brave soldiers that have given their lives so that we can be free. Thank you to all of the brave men & women who have served our country past and present and may you be forever blessed.

The first picture I posted is of a World War I Blue Star Memorial Flag, it is displayed proudly in my home during all seasons. I am honored to have found it and I cherish it.

The other pictures are a few favorites, this hot humid weather is putting me in an autumn state of mind.   I found a few wonderful pieces of white ironstone this week and I'd planned to post these but I'll have to do that on another day when I can figure out this camera issue. Have a safe and happy Memorial Day.

 Good Sunday to everyone, I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful weekend. I am feeling much better and trying to catch up on some housework. Never thought I'd be so happy about spending my weekend cleaning but it is so good to feel good again. Sorry about the ironing board peeking in on the picture above  but you know how it goes when you are trying to do ten things at once. Above are some favorites of mine, now that I'm able to get back to doing some of my favorite things I'm trying to get things sort of all together so I can rearrange them to display them better.
 I enjoy finding pieces of NC pottery, the red ware plates are from Seagroves. You can find the most beautiful pieces of pottery there and I love redware.
 The two pieces above are L Miles pieces also NC pottery.
 Yelloware is an all time favorite of mine and the pumpkin bowl above has been with me a long time. It is my absolute favorite piece of yelloware.
 This old enamel ware mold was a garage sale find for .50 cents.
 Old wooden bowls are another passion, the more worn they are the more I love them.

 I love old crocks, well who doesn't. This is a favorite.
And always sweet surprises from nature, the best gifts are most precious.
