On the return route home from our Mother’s Day drive to Cathlamet and Puget Island last weekend, we stopped at an Antique Shop we have bypassed on our several trips south. The house and location was a dairy farm, per the owner, and now that they are not farming, they rearranged the space into a home-owned antique shop. I got to browse the shop finding several items on my mental ‘must have’ list. But my mental list and our pocketbook are often not in agreement, so I did what I typically do – fill the shopping cart in my head until it is time to check out. Then I decide on what item(s) are an absolute must – may not be there when I come back someday. My pick for today were a set of oversized blue Ball mason jars. That was a must. And a small extra tidbit purchase was the tea cup and saucer.
