Memories....aren't they a blessing! Today I am sharing with you some Memories of my Mother's that she had passed on to me.
This beautiful picture was a wonderful memory for my Mother as it hung over the dining room table on the Family farm. She remembers it from childhood and she has since given it to me to treasure!

This next photo is one of the shots from our front porch. Our home was built in 1924 and we found this wooden beadboard in the basement when we removed some walls and reused it in the front is 8 ft high and then we added a plate rail above to the 10 ft ceilings.

This pretty lustreware bowl was another piece from my Mother's childhood and it was filled with apples on her Family dining room table. It reminds me of Fall so I usually bring it out to use this time of year.

These next photos are again from the front porch and I was lucky enough to be given the long photo from WW1 and the troup includes my Mother's Grandfather.

This old wood walking stick was found in the garage of this home when we purchased it.

Thank you for coming to visit today..I hoped you enjoyed my Memories..


  1. Wanda.....these are really sweet memories and you speak so lovingly of your mom :) :) :) you know...I really like what you did with the headboard...very nice and beautiful :) :) I wonder about the man or woman who owned that walking stick you found in the basement :)...and I have a washboard just like the one that's standing in front of the walking stick. Mine is a glass washing surface. It's new, from Lehman's....but it's made to look like the older ones :) :) These are great photos. Have a great weekend. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  2. Love that Lusterware Bowl! Beautiful!

    P.S. We are just about to start renovating a home from the 1860! At the moment it's filled with handmade imported Italian furniture that I hope -God willing - to someday bring back to it's original splendor.
