Yesterday Jeff and I went antiquing with our friend Jerrah. I thought I would share with you some of the treasures that I found. As always, I found some vintage Fiestaware...I know you are shocked...LOL! I didn't take pictures of the Fiesta. I have bored you enough with my passion for it.
I have started collecting some vintage toys that are more boy related. If we move, I would like to have one bedroom for a girl and one for a boy. With that in mind, I set out to find a few toys for boys. I put them in the basement guest bedroom and I think they look pretty good.
Jeff's parents found the old metal bucket for me. I put it in the sun room and really like the way it looks with the bait bucket and metal watering cans in that room.
When we picked Jerrah up, she gave me a gift for watering her flowers while she was on vacation. It was completely unnecessary, but I really appreciated her thinking of me. She gave me the sampler that says, "A good friend, like a quilt is both a treasure and a comfort." I love it and I put it in the basement family room.
I also wanted to brag on Jerrah a little bit. As most of you know we have taught together for four years. We are both Special Education Teachers. While we have been working together Jerrah has been working on her administration degree. She has worked really hard and put in a lot of long hours. Starting this school year, she will be the Special Education Director for our school district! This will mean that we will not be teaching together anymore, which makes me sad. However, I am so happy for her and I am so proud of what she has accomplished. Technically, she will be my boss. I have already told her I better get excellent evaluations...LOL! Jerrah is quite a bit younger than I am. I will not tell you her age, but she is in her twenties. What an accomplishment for her to achieve in such a short time! This speaks for her dedication and drive. I know that she is going to do a wodnerful job in her new position! Okay, I am finished bragging.
I will let you relax now and look at the pictures of my new treasures.
Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More! As always, I appreciate you stopping by and I hope that you will continue to come back as often as you can. Always remember that dreams and dedication are a powerful combination. With both of these you can achieve anything!
All My Best,
Memorial Day 2013
