i WAS WEARING ONE OF MY ALTERED HATS TODAY IN WALMART AND SOLD IT RIGHT OFF MY HEAD!

and I keep seeing blogs where folks are finding great finds,so here is some things in my house that I use every day,my house is full of stuff that belonged to MaMa,Aunt Bea and Nanny.

The old fan I use in summer,the pie safe is full of vintage antique dishes that I use every day.The enamel ware I use when I cook and the old cotton basket made by Nanny that we used picking cotton I use for a colthes basket.
