On Saturday we made a stop at The Old Lucketts Store.
Oh my! What a great place. I could have spent hours and hours there, but it was hot. Super hot. I made a beeline for Miss Mustard Seeds area.
Because space was limited, especially with our treasures from the farm, I had to restrain myself. I purchased these keys to go with the lock we salvaged at the farm.
I also purchased this watering can vase from another vendor.
If you are in the area you won't be disappointed if you stop by. If so you need take a peek at the restored school building across the street. This is the building where my grandmother went to school.
They are in the process of finishing the restoration of this building. I am so pleased with all the small details that have been maintained. After checking out the school we ended driving out into the country.
We went on a search for Granny's place. The home was built by my maternal great grandparents.
I have a picture of this home from the 1950's. It really hadn't changed much. I was amazed to see that the same fence is there. I don't know of many fences built today that will still be standing in 50 years. They sure don't make things the way they use to.
This home is still in the family. My aunt by marriage, Ada, still lives here. She moved in as a young bride with my great grandparents and raised four children here. When we would go visit the men were usually in the fields and Ada and Granny together in the home. It always makes me think of Olivia and Grandma on the Waltons. My hope is that this land and home will stay in the family for generations to come.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment.
