Whew,did alot of "going thru"boxes yesterday.My MIL passed away about 3 years ago and we moved my FIL in with us.And with him came there home. We packed everything in boxes and stored them in a huge storage room in our basement.We have gone thru it here and there but nothing major.And I have finally decided that enough is enough.And I am going thru everything and having a yard sale.Some stuff i am putting on ebay.
Well anyhoo, you first need to understand my MIL kept everything!! There was boxes of stuff packed away in her storage room that we didn't even know what was in them.As i was going thru the boxes I found alot of surprises! I found these old canning jars....
Some are Ball some are Atlas and I found 1 that says Presto. I also found a 1/2 gallon Ball that had a 2 piece lid and the writing was different on it. I looked it up and believe it is from the late 1800's.
I also found a box that says "Blue Lamp" and I found these 3 pieces in it. I don't believe that all the pieces are here so I am going to keep on digging.As I was going thru all these boxes (not even 1/2 half of them yet) i think of how it is so sad that her life is in these boxes and she probably never thought that one day her daughter-in-law would be going thru them.And how all of her life is being sold in a yard sale or auctioned off on ebay.She was an incredible woman and I loved her and respected dearly.But then there are the things that I have of hers that I will cherish dearly,her handmade quilts,afghans,family albums and so on.
On another note,over the weekend I found a wonderful site of a woman named Kelli and seen the most wonderful recipe for Cream Cheese Banana Nut Bread. Of course I had to whip it up
and bake it. And here is the finished product....
It was absolutely wonderful!! I encourage everyone to go over to her site and look at all the fun stuff she has going onhttp://kellishouse.blogspot.com/ Thanks to Debbie @ ribbonwood cottage for the referral!!I hope everyone has a blessed day.
