some curiosities and cuties
(bowls with dog by me --they are a good size ice cream bowl and the first time I have put a really big dog on there--I tell people I make dogs blue or turquoise, because other than white and black, I find glaze schemes for dogs tricky, so I go OVER THE top sometimes...why not turquoise?:)
OK, the other day I am at Pastimes antiques getting the wife the killer...let's see, mother's day gifts...why mother's day you ask? Becuase the closet is FULLfullfull of the Christmas, birthday, Valentine's, Easter presents and soon I will be working on the presents for 2015....so anyway, I get her a present for TODAY.
I pick up this post card to buy her, she is from Kansas City and this is a view of the stockyards and part of downtown nearly 100 years ago. You go into the cemetery, and their family goes back a lot further out in KC...and lately we have been reading her great-grandmother's diaries about her grandmother's childhood in like, 1906.
So, I got this post card at the antique store..and flip it over...it had been sent, as you see, to the house around the corner from our house! The prettiest house here in Etna is the Lumbard House, as you can see...... it is actually kind of a boring message, but anyway...
The house is in the center of downtown Etna, next to, below, the post office and Baptist church..pretty huh? This is our town :) Have a great day!
