The blacksmith made it home shortly after noon on Sunday. It was so good to have him back home. Being gone eight days only makes the heart grow fonder!
It is a small anvil I found last week in an antique store.It is from the 1904 World's Fair that was held in St Louis Missouri. The anvil celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Louisiana purchase in 1804.
Since's he's back, I guess my antiquing days are over with for a while. However I did find some great finds.
You probably heard me squeal Saturday when I found not one but two of these fans. Hilltop Market was an IGA grocery store that my aunt and uncle owned from sometime in the 40's to the late 60's. Now my sister and I each have a parlor/funeral fan from Uncle Ross and Aunt Tessie's store!
This, I purchased yesterday from EBay. I priced this same machine locally and it was $150 higher. It will be my first attempt at machine embroidery.
This I also purchased from EBay, a naked blacksmith! Need I say more? It will be made into a necklace.
Praise the Lord, we finally got rain yesterday. It was our first measurable rain since March. Looks like about 1/2 inch was in the rain gauge!
Grand baby is doing great. He's 22 weeks now. Isn't she cute!
Now back to normal, what ever that is . . .
