Happy New Year Everyone!!!

I hope this post finds you all rested from the Holiday season and refreshed for a new and prospers year ahead!!! It's been a long time since I made a post! I wanted to share some of my mom's wonderful antiques. Last year I made her a calendar using pictures of her beautiful antique displays and she really enjoyed it so I had to do the same for her this year! Here are a few pictures I used! The summer issue of the Mercantile Gathering magazine will be featuring her story too so be sure to watch for that! She has been anxiously awaiting for a year now to have it published!

This is my most favorite cupboard and one of her first pieces she purchased!

A black window cupboard filled with some wonderful prims!
She loves you can see with this shelf, bowls and really old drying rack! The prairie bonnet is one of mine made from my most favorite piece of blue fabric!

Another window box filled with prims.

I need to find out the story on this rocking horse.... I think it was hers when she was little but I'm not sure! I know years ago they had it painted and she really wishes she hadn't done it! It still is a beauty!

And one more blue piece.......a beautiful blanket chest!

Here are some lily pads my dad planted last year in the pond. My brother-in-law put some carp in pond and we think they ate them because this past summer they didn't grow!

Until next time................ Happy New Year and looking forward to an even better 2011!!!
