Yes, you were right. This was used to hold water in an old refrigerator/icebox. The spout swings down and lets the water out. I'm thinking of using it to make sun tea.. Anyway...I have never seen one before and think it's pretty nifty.
Who gets to lick the bowl in your house? I made brownies for the kids today (both big and little kids)... Spent two hours at the community center rummage sale this morning... ...and had tons of fun. I will show pictures tomorrow of my finds...
Everyone started arriving late this afternoon and we have a houseful now! I'm so happy to crawl into bed tonight but know that tomorrow morning I will be refreshed and up early making blueberry pancakes... ...or as 5 year old Kate requested...M & M pancakes!
The forecast is for beautiful weather so I am sure we will be spending all day at the lake and in the water or boats.
The parade is at 7 pm and then fireworks at 9 pm. I wouldn't miss it for the world!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
