On Sunday, Hubby and I spent a delightful evening with my friend Ceekay and her Hubby. During the course of our visit, Ceekay asked me what I had brought home for myself so I thought I'd show a few pictures of just some of the things I purchased while Hubby worked in Alabama.
One of my last purchases was this Dazey churn. I had never seen a metal one before so it had to come home with me - plus the price was right.
This was one of my first Alabama purchases. I still haven't decided where to hang it.
Our grandson, Jacob, was enraptured with the jar of marbles I brought home. There are 227 - we counted!
When I was helping my Mom declutter her house she gave me wonderful old book.
She also gave me a Depression era goblet and creamer. Then, I found more goblets and the wonderful little sherbet glasses at some antique stores.
I figured I could mix and match them with the six pink sherbet glasses I found at a store in Lynchburg, Tennessee.
Mom also gave me this delightful little pink Depression berry set. They were found covered with dirt in a barn on my grandparent's farm in southern Missouri.
On one of our outings, when Ceekay came to visit, I found this silver sugar and matching scoop.
At another antique shop, Ceekay and I visited, I found this server at a bargain price.
Then, I ended up collecting mugs from Franklin, Tennessee, the bed and breakfast Ceekay and I stayed at, and Stones River National Battlefield.
Finally, I couldn't resist a set of wine glasses etched with Belle Meade Plantation's logo.
However, my shopping wasn't all about me. I like to give all the neighbors a little souvenir of our time away from home, for keeping an eye on our place, so this time I brought home jars of honey from U.G. Mercantile in Athens, Alabama. Then, I baked home-made loaves of bread so they would have something to put their honey on.
There are plenty more Alabama treasures I purchased as gifts but they will have to remain secret -
