UNION MULE ANTIQUES....

Union Mule Antiques ........ the very place that my heart would pitty pat everytime i drove by........that was thirty years ago .....Mom & i loved to stop in for a little visit occasionally.......
 that July 4th sale was from her estate..... the goods were the best of the best ...... & our son in law was the auctioneer!
those goods were going pretty high ..... but on the second & third round bid i was able to win some of the smaller baskets ...... ( of which there were many!!!)........ the crocks were AMAZING  ( of which there were many as well)  i could afford NONE!   ........   but these are the basket treasures that came home to live with me for now ..... till they are in the arms of others .... continuing the story 
( I find it so touching that our Megan & Marah would be with us many a time to stop in for the visit ..... & Megan's husband was the auctioneer..... full circle heart momentđź’™)

total of 7 baskets ....
my Mom had glass nesting eggs .... i don't know what happened to them ..... but this basket held these !


 i am blessed  ..........

i can't believe........

oh my goodness i can't believe it has been a month since i have stopped in .......... life happens doesn't it?

i had a post ready a few days ago .... didn't go through .... so maybe it wasn't important ...... isn't that like life sometimes  ..... we get so wrapped up in the " importance " of something ....... just to realize it was not worth putting our time & energy into.......... that is why the gospel tells us not to worry ...........
 
hoping your fourth was as exciting as ours ........ we were at an estate auction all day !


i am blessed !

where it belongs.....

one more day before the door opens here at Mustard Seed for our Country Neighbors tour ..... the shop has been slightly revamped ..... more room behind the counter (finally)  & my sweet addition is the chair i sat in as a little girl , at Granny's store ...........
     when i was in sixth grade ..... Mom & Daddy built our new house ...... Mom & Gran surprised me when i got off the bus...... i was given this special chair & they had made curtains  , & covered the chair to match .......i still have pieces of that purple fabric.....
      hoping my sweet grands will sit in it and feel the special love & memories it holds ....... it is exactly where it belongs ...... behind the counter with my "store owner" inspiration from Granny May ...... sweet memories!
  
.................,. i am blessed !
