Good Things:

Hannah & I left this morning heading towards C'ville
(Charlottesville, VA)
we needed to get some things for our trip to CT next week...
how convenient for us,
that the Covesville Antiques Store
is right on the way!!!
Of course, we had to stop.
just wouldn't be right if we didn't!
Here are a few Good Things that I purchased:
this beautiful old SPICES measure
with zinc band on it's bottom...
(love it!)
it's approx. 12" round.

this great pantry jar with white enamel lid...
bubble-y glass & old!

an OLD rug hook ~
well-worn, and is rusty...
the handle is worn smooth-as-satin...
BIG cha-ching!!

and, this Commode Chair~
Late 1800's, complete with a grey-graniteware pot...
(i've been wanting one of these for a long time!)
{$45.00 BUT I talked him down to 30.00}

for a grand total of:
not a bad haul, huh?
I can't wait to get to CT to my old Antiques haunts...
I just know there are many more
Good Things
to come...

Blessings from the Farm,
