~~~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'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.
