Hi Jane,

WOW, it looks like you found some great things. I am especially fond of the vinegar jar. The blue and white stripe is really pretty.

I hope you are well and you, husband and Mattie are enjoying the summer.

We have moved and I am STILL unpacking and thinking to myself that I am going to sell some of my things on EBay. I have just accumulated to much STUFF and I'm tired of dragging it around each time we move. LOL

I will be posting more regularly now and just finished up a couple of posts with photos of the area. The post on St. Andrews Bay and the Farmers Market has some great photos of the area.

Take care, sweetie!
