Good Morning!! I have been a little under the weather, but feel much better today. I am so ready for the weekend. "Yngwie" our Dear Son who is 15 years old (Yngwie is our nickname for him because he loves Yngwie Malmsteens music), has an Odyssey of the Mind competition tomorrow, we both will be glad when this is over.

I thought I would give you a glimpse of a corner of my home. My husband made the bookcase several years ago. The top shelf holds some of my green depression glass and some jadeite that belonged to my great aunt. The next shelf down is my great grandmother water pitcher, some more Jadite, and an authentic 1889 White House Cookbook. The third shelf is more jadetite, a set of Ken-L-Ration dog & cat salt and pepper shakers, and the plate is the one my great grandmoter always ate from and I love Mr. Peanut collectibles. Bottom shelf is some Longaberger baskets with some recipe booklets from the early 1920's and a home-ec book from the 1940's.

Weather is supposed to be good through Saturday so I am getting some more onions in the ground and some pansies planted tomorrow. Hope you all have a great week-end.
