~~~Coming To An End~~~

the weekend that is. We have had a fast and fun
Date night was fun and I will show you what I
found...or what found me that is...

First is this EARLY 1800's Virginia
Butter Worker...it's in mint shape and I just love
the patina of the wood.  I swear you can still
smell the butter on the paddle.

Next is the early 1800's bassinet.
I have some antique ticking that I will
be fashioning some make-do bedding.
The wood in this piece is awesome also.

Moving on is this great green chair.
I can see this on the buggy with grandmother
holding tight. This too is in great shape,
but I must say that it is a lot easier getting into it
then it is getting out of it!

 And last we have this great make-do rocker.
I purchased this in NC this past Monday from
Nan Brook Farm...
I love her booth, some amazing things!
I had to have this rocker...something was talking to me!
Great Job!!!

The last few days have been a blur...
getting ready for Knoxville...
 have gotten Cats and Carrots down to a fine art!!  lol
My last carrots were a little overdone...I am calling those
"fresh dug".  REAL DIRTY!!!!

Well friends, the buzzer is sounding so
I guess something in the kitchen is done, and
since I burned the bacon...yep to a black nasty crisp,
I better go check it.

Thank you for your visit to Millstone and have a
Blessed evening.

Hello and good evening my friends...

Packed house
High prices

This is the greatest!
A child's Mennonite Prayer Bench
This is not from the auction, but I forgot to show you

going to sleep would pull this out and kneel down.

This is the rocker Lee is working on.

What Fun We Had....

Some quick pics of our booth...
I wish they were better, but we had to completely
re-do our booth...long story.
Lee took the pics and he would have rather been shopping!

THANK YOU for coming out in the cold and wind to support
us...it means so much to both of us.

And a HUGE thanks to Donna and Linda for another
successful show.

Driving home was like playing dodge ball, except we
were dodging tree limbs and debris from the extreme
high winds. Lee did a fantastic job pulling that trailer...
I kept me eyes closed and my mouth shut!!

Thanks for you visit to Millstone...
have a blessed night and I will talk to you mid week.
