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.
