It’s been really hectic around here, check but in a good way. Today I want to thank my wonderful customers for your purchases, ailment AND for taking the time out of your busy day to email me to let me know how happy you are with your purchases. I just can’t tell you how good that makes me feel! !  I have worked really hard to find some wonderful things for you, and have tried to take the best photos I can to give you a real feel for items I have for sale. You have responded in kind and your emails have warmed my heart.  I will continue to work hard at finding more wonderful primitives for you. This weekend I plan on driving to the Lancaster Country area, my favorite area, in hopes of finding more wonderful treasures for you, to help you decorate your home, to make it warm and inviting for you and your family.

The items I show today will be available this weekend. The photo above is part of a charming  early watercolor on lined paper found in Big Valley, Mifflin County, Pennsylvania. I am told it is Amish. The wedding band hogscraper, basket and 19th century still life, will also be some of the items soon available.

I also wanted to mention how much I appreciate the emails I get asking about my mother. She is 93 now and doing as well as can be expected. Her dementia has progressed somewhat but she still knows her family, and I am  thankful for that. She tells me things that I know can not be true, but it’s the world she lives in now. I took her for a long ride the other day. We stopped by my house so she could say hello to Bill. She was so happy to see him. Later, when I took her back to the assisted living, she said, “this is my house? It doesn’t look like it”. Some times she  breaks my heart.

    Carol, I enjoy your blog. Thank you for telling us about you mother. It must be difficult, this letting go of life. It is so nice that you are near to spend time with her, making memories for you to hold close. I enjoy looking through the items you have found. They are truly wonderful. Maybe I’ll be able to chose one for Christmas. Thank you for keeping history alive.

    …I’m so glad to hear that your mother is still doing well Carole, I think of you and her often. It’s always so hard when you become the parent to a parent but sadly for some, it is just the way life is. The main thing is that she remembers her family and remains happy and in good health.

    …Love the treasures you always have to offer too. I could never do what you do because I would want to keep everything! lol…

    …Have a lovely evening and blessings too… :o )
