Anything made by folk artist Johanna Parker



Butter molds, pie plates, and wooden spoons



Yellow ware



Breadboards



Wooden mashers





Candle molds and wooden bowls



Samplers



Vintage children books

Tin lamps



Hooked rugs



Cow creamers

So, tell me...what are some of your favorite things?

Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you will continue to come back as often as you can. Don't forget to look for Yesterday Once More on facebook. I would love to see you there too!

My favorites are the same as yours

Have a great week!

I love your favorite things. I love many of the same crocks, wooden bowls and kitchen utensils, samplers, pewter...oh, you know, anything primitive.

jojo said...

fantastic collections you have!! Oh my, I just love the firkins, never knew what they were called but then you just killed me when I saw the jadeite...*sigh*

Lida said...

Love those things too! Did not know that I was that old yet, used the wooden masher at school and when i was yust married! But I have a question, what is a Firkin and what is the use? It looks like a wooden bucket, never seen one before! Have a nice day

Thank you for sharing your favorites.
I especially like the lamps and cow creamers. They would sure fit in with my collection of cows.
Have a wonderful day.

I love all your favortie things, I love your molds, firkins, mashers(LOVE, LOVE yours),hook rugs, oh heck I love everything you have and I do have alot of the things you posted, just not the molds, been LOOKING, and I need to make or buy a hook rug. I bought one and we put it on our selling blog and it sold in 2 days.
So, this spring we are going shopping again and I am praying I can find some hook rugs.
Dan, you know how much I LOVE your home and I love your family picture of you, Jeff and your furbabies. You have a beautiful family, you are very blessed.
Prim Blessings,
Tricia

What eye candy indeed! I love to collect things that have color or texture or things that just are different..I did see a few coffee cans that I DO NOT have...guess I have to look harder for those :o) Take care, Janice

Playing a little catch-up in blogging here...Great post Dan....as for me, have to say that most all of what you collect rank high on my list of favorites as well (except, while I do appreciate them, I don't have any Fiesta ware or cow creamers) - add in treen ink sanders, pewter ware, antique chocolate molds, vintage mohair Steiff animals, antique shoes, and old gameboards, and we've pretty much covered the majority of my addictions! Thanks so much for sharing....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
