I know I have not been posting very often but, I have been working my tail off! My studio is getting an extreme make over!! I am getting close to finishing it. I will reveal my wonderful space on August 15th for Where county women create. I will post some bits and piece of history of my creative space. Yesterday the kids and I went pickin in my mothers shed. My mother is 88 and I don't think she ever throws things away. This shed is packed with so much stuff, a lot of is trash and I did get her to throw some things away. A couple of years ago my mother had to have gall bladder surgery and could not ride her mower to mow the yard. Yes she does everything on her own. This woman is a trooper! I got in the shed to get out the mower and noticed these vintage wheels. OMG it was an old wicker baby doll buggy that was hers as a little girl. It was just wasting away in her shed. I got it and it is on display in my house. I was peeking in her shed a few weeks ago an notice something, I asked what it was....It was and old piece of post office boxes with the window!! My mother ran the post office for almost 30 years and it was part of our house. I was drooling and asked if I could have it for my studio...my mom never tells me no anymore! I LOVE her so much, she is the Greatest! Yesterday we dug the boxes out and the piece of post office is in my studio. I also noticed an old galvanized bath tub, this was getting good! Yes she said I could have that also. So while I was digging out the tub I screamed with joy, is that a crock!!! Yes it was and it belonged to my grandfather, it could not get any better. Yes I could have that also. I now have a piece of my grandfather, he lived to be 95 and was a strong wonderful man. I remember my mother making pickles in this crock when I was very young. I also found a few other little treasures and didn't even get all the way through the shed. Who knows there might be another wonderful piece of history hiding in that shed waiting for me to discover it! Blake found a couple of things he wanted, he love to pick! Makayla scrubbed the crock all up for me and it is in my family room. Hugs for now!
