I was asked what I wanted to do on my birthday. What I really wanted was a day with my hubby, lunch at a diner, and a trip to this great antique/flea market that I have been wanting to check out, and so that is what we did.
My birthday present from Hubby was awesome. He mad me this bench from old barn wood. I love it, and I love that he made it. He is a man of so many talents, he never stops amazing me.
We went to lunch at a great place on the way to the flea market. This town has so much history, I love going there.
My flea market finds. I have been meaning to get a double boiler for a long time, but because it isn’t a frequently needed item, I only think thought about the need on those rare occasions . The tea kettle was older, certainly not an antique but it has a history and was stainless steel. The enamel cookware reminds me of a pot my mom used. She always told me that was the pot she heated my sister and my bottles in, I may ask her if I can have that pot. It too has history. I’ve also wanted a pastry cutter and this one was nice as well as the solidly built potato ricer. I really liked what I found, but I also loved looking at all the great old things in the vintage collection they had.
It was a very nice birthday.
