Knappa Days ...

...the first and not the last parade we will be in for Knappa Days... 

 ...the joy of seeing friends, family and the kids to absorb the fun.
Paper Bagley was our sponsor at the spare of the moment...next year we will have more flare on the John Deere.
 I have been working on this old milk jug for awhile. The paint is John Deere yellow and green.
I needed the old tractor seat placed so it can come off...I thought it through and with idea in mind I presented it to a local fishing lure / wood artist: Steve Shellabarger at Fishie On Lures
Here is what he worked out...he suggested that I put the duck tape around the bottom if I wanted a tighter fit...it was not needed but for a kid proof seal, it works. Now all it needs is a nice John Deere sticker!
Without the tape the chair would swivel!
* Thank-you Steve *

History within...

...in my kitchen

This submission is for:
These are the only chickens I have left since the remodel in 2008. The rooster on the left was given to me by Grandma Gail Moore, the wire chicken was a wedding gift from Janet Teevin Heilmann back in 1978. There are cedar eggs within it that were made by Mr. Sheets. The vintage sunflower pieces, canning jars & corn bread pan were my Grandma Helen Travess'. The bowl on the back left is my good table setting bought in 1980 and the right side bowl is my first table setting bought in 1976. The stool is the one that my father Francis Bagley sat on to milk our cow Bossy. The scale was given to me from my brother-in-law Donald Lee.
There is alot of history in a small corner.

Look who's HoMe...

...Vivian, Mommy and Daddy all home safely. Vivian had to go home after the trip but her birthday is coming so we will see her then. Toots got to spend the nite for a few days and what a delight of thankfulness.

First things first this morning... .Grandmas tractor....one day those keys will be a issue!
The Trike was next...the streamers were the coolest part...Toots cant even push it as yet so that was not the highlight for the morning.
Here is a picture for...

Here is the addition to our home.
It was a city wide Garage Sale in Clatskanie and I was able to obtain this 1950's vintage table and 6 chairs. I had to wash them up and do some patching. They desperately need a reupholstering but time will be a element. Until then they will be used.
