Olde Colonial Peddler: My First Giveaway!

6 Things about me!

Ok Mary over at Gettysburg Homestead shared six things about her and wanted everybody that hasn't done it yet to do it.Its very funny cause I read hers and it sounded a lot like myself. So here I go and no judging:)

1. Like Mary I have no female friends that are not family members.My sister, cousin and mother and mother in law are the only girlfriends that I have.And NONE of them are interested in primitives or crafts so that's why I'm so happy to have found this place. Now I have me some online girls!!

2.I am addicted to sweets. I don't just mean that I like them a lot. I have a problem of getting up in the middle of the night and eating 3 4 or 5 cupcakes (that I told my hubby not to buy) while I'm still half asleep. I think I made need a lock on my pantry door where the key is hid from me.

3. I was already pregnant with my youngest son Lincoln when I got my tubes tied and had no idea.I had Landon and they messed up some paperwork that caused me not to be able to get the surgery right after so a couple months later I got the pregnancy test it was negative they did the surgery and 10 days later I'm in the emergency room cause of pain they did some tests and found out I was about 5 weeks pregnant!!! So here he is!!

4.My dream is to one day visit Maine! I dont know but for some reason I just have this bueatiful picture of me and my hubby livin by the water when we are older and retired and the kids are all grown up!!Which actually makes the next comment kind of strange

5. My biggest fear is water. I love to look at it but I mean I will go swimming in a pool and stuff but will you catch me out on a boat? I think not. My hubby hates it too cause he wants me to go fishin out on the lake and go on a cruise but no thank you!! I dont think its just the water itself I think its not knowing whats in the water!!

6.And this is the last but probably saddest. Between my first and second son a had a daughter,Riley. She got very sick at about 2 weeks old and I had to stay at Childrens Hospital with her for about 3 weeks where she passed away from pertussis (whooping cough).She wasnt old enough to have the first vaccine for it yet.She is now my little angel. Its a strange situation cause when people ask me how many kids I have I want to say 4 cause I feel like I'm leaving her out if I say I have 3 kids. So usually my response is Oh I have 3 boys.She is gone but will never be forgotton!!

Look what I got!! YAY!!

The pretty roses he gave me!!

Ok I'm so excited!! Yesterday was my birthday and my hubby bought me the best thing ever. My first crock!! We were on our way to the campgrounds and there was a yard sale he wanted to stop at and I was out browsing through all the stuff and couldnt find a thing I liked. Well as I was walking away I seen the crock out of the corner of my eye sitting under some old clothes that were hanging up. My husband knew I seen it and asked the lady what she wanted for it. She told him $50.00 and not a penny less. She said she really didnt want to get rid of it but she was moving to a very small place and just didnt have room for it. She told me it was very old and that her great uncle used to make pickles in it. Well we didnt have the 50 bucks (or so I thought) so we left and I was a little dissapointed. We got to the campgrounds and my husband and father in law said they had some business to take care of at the office with some paperwork to fill out so they had to go. Well about half an hour lady here comes my hubby lugging the huge crock that I wanted so bad!!! I got very excited and wanted to go home just to find a place to put it in my house LOL He is so sweet. He did so much for my birthday this year because with having had 4 kids it was the first birthday I havent been pregnant in 5 years! Well now ladies I need a little help from you I really couldnt find any info on this crock. I found one page that I'm not sure if it is the right place or not Here is the link
www.ci.akron.oh.us/AkronHistoryTrails/pdf/aht_final.pdf
It is in adobe reader It is page 9 out of 18 called An Industrial Trail Akrons Ceramics Industry
If you guys could find any info on this let me know!!Heres some pics of my crock
Im guessing its about a 20 or 30 gallon I'm not sure but its huge!!
This is the marking on the front of it

Yeah Landon thinks its funny to throw his bottle in it then cry cause he cant reach it LOL
It says Merrill & CO Akron O

I love Fall!!!!

Oh I just love fall and in the little bit of time I've had to myself I started to decorate my house a bit.I wish I could leave the fall decorations out year round. I love all the colors and it makes my house feel a little more cozy. These are the first pictures that Ive posted of my house and please excuse the toys and diapers and such laying all around LOL Having two of my kids in diapers and still on the bottle doesn't give me much time to do anything especially clean my house and when it comes down to it Id much rather decorate for fall then clean. Would it be wrong of me if I just covered up the mess with some pretty red and orange fallen leaves from the trees?LOL :) My house isn't really prim the way I would like it to be yet but we are just starting out in this new house and I haven't go to paint the walls yet and well you all know that decorating your home in prim or antiques can get very expensive. This is just a start of my autumn decorating so I hope you enjoy my pics let me know what you think. Oh and if your wondering why I don't have anything on my lower shelves or benches that would be because my 1 year old thinks mommy's prettys are for throwing like a baseball!!Oh the joys of motherhood!


And here is that little 1 year old Landon enjoying his daily breakfast of cereal and a banana. He would flip out if he woke up and had no banana for breakfast. Well sorry ladies my cameras batteries decided to die on me so this is all I can post at the time.Im gonna try to find some more and Ill be back to post more pics.

I am grateful for everything he makes though!!I'm gonna try to find a quilt for the ladder and maybe a prim doll and I defiantly need to prim up the window to.Maybe I could get him to make me something to have my own giveaway on here!!
