When we were cleaning out the barn, my hubby thought my brother may want some things that were my Dad's. My parents bought that property when I was 9 or 10.
We still had some things that belonged to them.
Do these pictures remind you of a popular TV show??
Looks like American Pickers =)
My brother did want this stuff.
I also took pictures and sent them to my large family to ask if anyone wanted any of this stuff.
My sister Jeanie said the strawberry boxes
were a bad memory.
She didn't like picking strawberries.
When we lived on the farm,
Mom had a huge patch of strawberries.
She sold them to help fund our family needs.
These are so neat and so dirty.
There were 3.
I kept one to plant flowers in (next year)
but I didn't need the other two.
The large one was our baby bath tub!
One is going to my niece in Hawaii!
The other one is staying with my brother and his wife.
This old calendar was in....
...this old tin can.
My brother wanted it.
The calendar was from the year he was born.
Mom had recorded on it
when she paid a bill and
how much it was.
So neat whenever I see the handwriting of my mom or dad!
One of my sisters asked if there was money hidden in that old can.
I replied that I didn't dig into it
but I doubted there was any to be found!
We grew up in a home of abundant love
not abundant in money or material things.
If I had to choose an abundance of anything,
I would choose love!
These three things are going to the new owners of our home.
They will purchase them but I don't know how much any are worth.
It feels so good to have our old home empty of our stuff. We brought enough old stuff with us to keep the feel of the our old home with us ♥ Hopefully Hubs will soon be able to work on the barn door that is to be our bedroom door. Love it! And, he also brought some old shutters along to make a headboard for our bed. See, the old house lives on here at the new house. I like that. A lot!
