Mercy me, what a challenge. Cindy at My Romantic Home is hosting Your favorite thing. This cannot be a person, so that leaves my hubby out! I am late on posting this, because honestly, I struggled with what really is my favorite thing. My husband and I have often spoke of what to grab in an emergency...and I would be in a real pinch. I am so sentimental about so many things, it is really hard to pick a favorite. I have family pieces, pictures, memory books, oh, I need to breathe....Ok, that's better.
I finally knew what I wanted to pick. It is my crock butter churn. I have moved several times with this item, and let me tell you, it gets seat belted in the car with blankets all around it. It is not a family piece but I remember clearly the day I bought it. I was a young (er) bride and we went to our first farm auction. I saw this churn and that was it...I was taking it home. I dug my feet in the ground and started bidding. Hubby was behind me getting panicked...he leaned over and said..."How high are you going to go?" Don't know, but it is mine!
Well, I won. It was $40.00 back then, which meant we ate a lot of hot dogs the next week. But it and the memory are definately ONE of my favoite things. For you antique buffs, the paddle is complete. I know that is important. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and I am off to look at some more of your favorite things!
