I have the sweetest husband in the world. Just in case you didn't remember me telling you that before!
His eyes rove to and fro looking for gifts for me.
He came home with this table/shelf Saturday. He saw it at a moving sale. The people were moving to South Carolina and were getting rid of as much of their stuff as possible. This is absolutely perfect for my laundry room/pantry nook.
It can be used as a place to put folded laundry or I can use it as an extension of the pantry.
Here it is pictured with some of my 82 year old Mama's home made sweet pickles. If you haven't had potato salad or chicken salad made with Mama's home made sweet pickles, you haven't really tasted potato salad or chicken salad. I don't expect that she will be physically able to make any more pickles, although I'm sure she will try. She has 20 or 30 jars left in her storage room, but that may be the end of the home made sweet pickles. I am planning to get her recipe and start the tradition at my house.
The ceramic pitcher with kitchen tools in it was made by my husband's Mama many years ago when the ceramics hobby was so popular around here. She passed away long ago, before I had a chance to know her. Her reputation as a wonderful lady is still famous in this area. If she was anything like her son, she was great!
There are also a few of my favorite cookbooks, "Aunt Bee's Mayberry Cookbook", "Not Just Beans" and "Heavenly Dishes". "Heavenly Dishes" is an old cookbook published by my church as a fund raiser at least 20 years ago.
The basket was hand made years ago by my elderly aunt and uncle. That was one of their many hobbies.
This picture reflects my husband's love for me and holds many memories and therefore qualifies for a HEART STRINGS post.
Thanks Blake, Mama, Ms. Florrie, Aunt Patty, Uncle Phillip, and the church ladies! I love you all!
