Viewing: Memories

Ring Around The Collar

Remember those commercials? It was for some laundry detergent. I don't even remember which one, but the ads always showed a woman who was mortified, because her husbands shirts had a "ring around the collar". It was years before I even came close to understanding that. I still don't really get it. I have never […] Read More

Scary Shadows At Night

I woke up in the middle of the night last night, because the chili we had for dinner wasn't happy about being eaten. Got up to go get some baking soda.  I was almost to the bedroom door when I saw the shadow on the wall by the closet. It looked like a man. Freaked […] Read More

Send Me An Ice Cream Man

When I was little a truck similar to the one in the picture would come by my grandmothers house just about every day. Definitely every Saturday and Sunday afternoon. She lived across the street from the main park in town. The one with the swimming pool and the baseball field and the tennis courts. And […] Read More

A Civil War Reenactment Dress And A Faire Dress

The Civil War dress costume is a lovely shade of blue with white edgings. I'm pretty sure the material is satin. It is shiny and soft and feels rich. The dress is actually three pieces. The skirt, the top, the sash. It is NOT period correct (means not made as dresses were back then). This […] Read More

Anyone Want To Buy A Faire Dress Costume?

I put one up for sale on Ebay today. It is a dress that has been boxed up in my closet for over 5 years now.   It has a headdress wreath that goes with it too. This is a dress that was going to be my wedding dress. It is long and pretty and […] Read More

Ever Seen A Bottle Tree?

I hadn't either till my grandmother decided to make one. I think it would have been better with a few "branches" but that would have been harder to do. This was like several of the other decorations she had...she saw one somewhere and wanted to make one of her own. She did a pretty good […] Read More

A Flower Bed

My grandmother did this. She saw one somewhere and had to have one of her own. This is the second one. The first was made with an old metal bed frame. This one is a baby bed. She had flowers in them and they were really pretty. That one got taken up again later and […] Read More

More Wagon Wheel Decorations

I finally got out and took some pictures of the other wagon wheels we have out in our yard. This is the same wagon wheel as the one in the picture I posted on my Old Wagon Wheel post a couple of weeks ago. In the old picture it was on a post in the […] Read More

Old Wagon Wheel Makes A Great Decoration

I'm not sure where she found it but my mom has had this wagon wheel for a long time. She painted it red and it was on that pole in the yard for a while. I'm not sure why it got moved but when my dad bought the land next door and build his "barn" […] Read More

Old Wash Tubs And Driftwood

Those belonged to my grandmother. She always had a round wash tub as long as I can remember. When I was little it was used for putting stuff in out of the garden. Corn especially. Also for washing tomatoes and stuff before canning. Green beans before they were hulled. I remember sitting outside with a […] Read More
