Wisconsin mementos

 I had to take these darlings home with me (my mom also picked out one of these baby spoons, with a different engraved name). The babies in these old-sepia photographs reminded me of my youngest grandchildren. The lady in the middle is an old tin-type photograph.
 My never-ending obsession with Salt and Pepper Shakers. These two look a bit odd, and curious. Don't you agree? :)

These were all from: Call it New, Call it Antique, in Stevens Point, WI. Thank you my daughter, Rashelle; and another big thank you to my sister, Julie and her family, for having all of us at your lovely home to visit. What a fun Summer trip we had together! Many memorable adventures to keep us going until we can meet again!! :) Last, but not least, thank you everyone here that took the time to stop by to visit, and for your kind prayers and comments for safe travels. I appreciate them from the bottom of my heart! 

I am joining in with the link parties over at:
 Kathleen @ Faded Charm for: White Wednesday.,
Debra @ Common Ground for: Vintage Inspiration Friday

Please take a moment to go visit all of the lovely links over there.

Blessings and Hugs to you for a Happy Day!!

Love, Gloria
