Vintage Valentine Card Party!

Welcome to The Vintage Valentine Card Party
hosted by Joan from Anything Goes Here.
Thank you Joan for hosting this sweet party!
Be sure to check out the list of participants!

When we cleared out the farm there were boxes
of papers and cards from my Grandmother
that my Dad had saved.
Also some cards from my Mother.
It was fun going through all of them.
Here are some of the Valentine's I found...

Postcards were so big back in those days.

One of my favs

Gotta love this one!

I think these are from my Sister's era

Our 15 year old cat, Baylee, insisted on helping ~

On this one the little Engineer moves

To see more be sure to check out all the participants
over at Joan's Party!

Wishing everyone a Wonderful Weekend
and The Happiest Valentine's Day!

TGIF! Fertilizer Friday!

It's Fertilizer Friday over at Tootsie Time!
Be sure to pop over and see everyone's blooms!

We have been having some warmer weather and sunshine!
Feels good too.
While out counting birds for The 13th annual Great Backyard Birdcount
I noticed I had some botanical activity!!!

Buds almost ready to burst...

and even blooms!

ahhh, they made me smile.

I'll leave you with a few of my "counties"

Have a terrific weekend!!

The Old West

On with our continuing saga of the Ag Museum.

The Proprietor has built all the buildings here himself,
including this facade of old west store fronts. 

Now a Killer Whale doesn't belong in the Old West,
but this one is really cool.
 Originally a pontoon thingy, turned Killer Whale.

Ok Back to the Old West.
Cute, huh?

There is even a working Blacksmith Shop.

Take a gander at that gorgeous newel post on the left of the entrance!

Everything a Smithy could want...

Look at the size of that Bellows!!

There's something to look at in every square inch...

Even the rafters...

So much eye candy for us junkers ;~)

see the horse collar hanging upside down in the center off the picture?
I currently have one and am trying to decide what to do with it.
Any suggestions?

On the farm we had several of these scales..

Now that's a Newel Post!

More goodies around the perimeter of the Shop..
Loving those old trunks!

I think maybe that huge Newel Post
and this huge Coffee Pot belonged to Paul Bunyan..

My Uncles used Separaters like this
on their Dairy Farm in the Livermore Hills.

I'm enjoying this all over again looking at these photos.
A few more and we'll finally be finished.
So many memories are evoked seeing these things,
it warms my heart.

Mosaic Monday ~ Critters

It's time for Modaic Monday over at The Little Red House 
with Mary as our Hostess.
Thank for having this each week Mary, it is such fun to see everyone's
take on this.

I've been receiving much flack from certain beings at my house.....
 for not showing them off.  

So without further adieu here are some of my furry, feathery,
and scaly friends in Mosaic form.

Oh and by the way,
I'm sorry but I had to add the word verification thingy back on...
way too many spamy comments.
