Join me as I embrace and share truly authentic American country style by reclaiming the past...my family's past. Come along as I make my house a home on a $0 budget with reclaimed, repurposed, recycled and found treasures all out of my grandparent's old house, local junk shops and my parent's attic. And since we have to eat too, I'll sprinkle in some gardening, country recipes, and a whole lot of southern hospitality.

  6. Anita, I saw your comment on BabyBloomr and followed your link to this amazing blog! It is an incredible place! And you are a multi-talented lady! I absolutely LOVE your tablescapes! And the one above brought back some sweet memories of my late mother-in-law. She had a set of Franciscan Apple dinnerware which she brought out for special occasions. The day after my husband and I became engaged, she made a wonderfully delicious supper for us, served on those plates. I was so impressed! It was one of the most lovely evenings! Seeing those plates brought it all back. Thanks!

  7. :'( My grandmother carried many pieces of Franciscan Apple pattern back from Calif. in the 60's so I would have a keep sake when I got married. At one time I had 60 pieces..Some of them got broken and my husband did not like them and it a fit of ( giving everything up for God) I sold them except for a few pieces. Oh how I wish I had my Apple pattern back.. lovely to see...
