I spent the day with my mom and grandmother, Mema. We went to the farmer’s market, and on our way to lunch noticed that our town’s historical society was holding a tag sale. We stopped in and had a look around. I love their little white barn.
We went into the barn and looked around at old farm machinery, tools, and signs. I loved the weathered sign with our town’s name hanging below the flag.
I picked up these aqua canning jars and a set of ceramic canisters. They look pretty sitting on my pantry shelves, and I’m already planning their use as vases for hydrangeas and zinnias this summer.
I’m not one to shop at tag sales often, but I’m glad I stopped in to this one since we got to visit the barn and look over the historical society’s collections. Since the historical society will be closed for a while during the neighboring library’s renovation (which will include a geothermal system, thanks in part to my dad’s suggestion), it will be a while before we get to go back.
