Sunny Monday Greetings to you. I hope you all had a glorious weekend filled with laughter and love. On Friday, hubby and I happened across a garage sale whose sign said Antiques so of course this gal had to stop. The furniture wasn't of interest but when my eye caught these two crocks I had to inspect them. They were marked fairly but we needed to run to the bank first.
We went back the the first crock had quite a crack in it-sounds like me sometimes-a cracked crock- so we made them an offer fifteen dollars less than she was asking and she excepted it. Yippee!!! What is interesting is that my original crock has the number 4, printed in blue ink, and these two also have their numbers printed in blue ink. I'm not sure if all crocks had lettering or words in blue or if this was just a special thing for me.
Our weekend was good but I have to say the Stampede was very disappointing but the blessing in it was that the tickets were free, thanks to our sil, so it wasn't a waste of money. It reminded me of a county fair in that the majority of things were carnival rides and vendors. In fact, our county fair has more than the Stampede does and we've been to rodeos in Tennessee and they had much more. Our family doesn't do carnival rides because many years ago we had a very traumatic situation occur at a county fair when my youngest girl, about 8 yrs old, was in a ride in the row behind me. For some reason the bar holding the children in was not latched and they were not secure when the ride was going higher and higher. There is nothing more terrifying for a mom or dad than knowing, at any time, your child could easily fall out of a ride. I was screaming and yelling for the ride operator to stop the ride and he wouldn't. Thankfully the Lord had His angels watching over the children that day and they weren't hurt; however about that time there was a national investigation on carnival rides due to the people who are hired to work on them, set them up and operate them. From that time on we never went on one again; we do go on rides at Disn*yland and Si* Fl*gs just not on small fairs.
I'm off to mail a baby quilt to my nephew for a friend of his. I will post photos tomorrow but I'm so glad it is done. Now I have to purchase fabric for another very special quilt project I've got planned.
Have a great day!!!!
