Follow Up to ~*~ I'm not AWOL ~*~ Lot's of pics!

First I want to wish all the Mother's a Happy Mother's Day! I hope everyone had a great day. Mine was good and busy. I have a litter of Mastiff's due in just a few day's, so yesterday was my day to get things ready. Hubby built me a whelping box and all the supplies are ready.
 Now for the fun stuff, A few days ago I promised pictures of mine and my son's adventures. So I'll start with my favorite. This a 6 gallon butter churn that is stamped with Walker Bros. Summersville WV.
Then we found several more large cutting boards
This great old measuring box
These jugs and crocks...
And these scales, cutting board, scoop and crock!
My Mother gave me the Watt's bowls, the rest came from our hunt.
This is my other favorite...
Both tin draws are there and so is the original punched tin!
There were several small items,several baskets, a box of old silverware, several smaller dove tailed boxes a large steel cut oats box, 3 mashers and a large hand painted thread advertising board, 1700's cobblers bench and a Stickly mission rocking chair..It has several layers of paint but is in great shape. I'll show it when I'm done with making it over...
And the mask that was gifted to my son... He has completed the required report about it's origin and mailed it !(The shop owner gave the mask to him on the terms that he do a report and mail it back!)
Love the shirt! It fit's!
Here is a couple of pictures of some things that I built for myself. I have not kept many things for myself.
I've wanted a step back for sometime but wasn't sure where to put it.. so I did a little rearranging and decided to incorporate my 1800's ice box with a custom step back and this is how it turned out.
And a pic of the cupboard I made for the other wall..Some of the baskets and the little prim box came from our outing also..
So as you can see I've been busy, My yard and garden are coming together and we are even planning a vacation in a few weeks! Hope you enjoyed the pictures. The best part of all...... I told you the best part was the hag'ling! We got everything for under $900.00! SCORE!
I told you my son was impressed! I was shocked!
I'd better check on my mother to be...

Prim Wishes.....
