How about a set 0f crocheted potholders? Cute but not very functional. In the right kitchen, these would be adorable. I'm thinking there might be a way to frame them but still, I don't know where I would display them.
This was the most interesting piece of handwork in the box. A tablecloth, card table sized, with each corner embroidered with square dancers and a square dance "call". Maybe my FIL or SIL can confirm that they used to do some square dancing "back in the day". It's an unusual item and one along with several of the others that I'll have to find a place to store for future generations to discover one day!
This was a big box, big enough to even get a few toys stashed in amongst the linens and baby clothes. The Fisher-Price Barn is well worn. I think just about every kid of the seventies and eighties had one of these. I don't have any idea where the animals are! The train was supposed to ride the rail of the crib and play a tune. I don't think it will fit the crib that J & J got for grandbaby #1 though. Then there was Uncle Timmy Turtle! He was one of my toys, so you know he's probably classified as an antique now! He's in really pretty good shape for an old guy, just lacking the string.
You didn't think I'd do a whole blog entry and not mention a motorcycle ride did you? We didn't venture too far from home this weekend. A short ride over to a nearby state park scared up this deer and her two babies. She stood in the road quite a while, probably to let her little ones escape then hopped safely out of our way.
Hope you enjoyed my treasure hunt! I'm off to Missouri later this week - baby shower time again - but hope to get a post in before then. Have a great week!
