I picked over a laundry basket half full of pears before I gave up had enough  for Pear Butter!
These pics are from the last small batch I had left over after canning a couple dozen pints.

pics from a recent junkin' trip

I see old spools on blogs lately

I bet Donna over at Funky Junk would love this ceiling made with old crates!

An old shelve with original paper decorating it

Bub really wanted to love on the elk head and bounce on the cowhide covered bed :)

Scrummy rusty iron pot rack, old butter crocks and a child's sled...something not seen or used often around these parts ;)

happy 5th birthday, Bub!

We had his party on Sunday at the park after church. He invited friends he calls his "brothers" and his little girl friend he calls his "daughter" because she is littler than he is. Wrangling 9 children under age 11 was like herding cats with no one wanting to eat, play do cake at the same time. But it all worked out! He had a great time playing rough and tumble with boys...pizza, cup cakes and gifts were bonus points :)
