That was a good story. Especially, the part where you continued 'granmas' tradition with the sausage. Makes you wonder if she was in the room when you placed the platter on the woodstove.
When did you start posting stories on Two Lane Livin's website? If I should know that - I so apologize.

ongrats on your story. I loved it- so true and touching. I just bought a pitcher at the NAMI Thrift shop today because it reminded me of one my grandmother had and it called out to be filled to the brim with iced sweet tea.

Wonderful story, and I think, just the perfect length for online reading. I really enjoyed it. Sometimes friends think I'm a little odd, because I like my antiques to be used, as opposed to sitting on display. Awesome tale!

Noticed a jump in visitors from your site -- and now see why! Thanks for sharing your story with Two-Lane Livin' readers, and Two-Lane Livin' with your blog readers! :o)

Lovely! I'll bet they were glad that someone with your appreciation made room for their treasures.

I think that's why I like old things so well--I'm intrigued by the stories they tell, and by the lives they represent. What touched me about those women was their confusion about what was happening to their lives. It was as if they felt they should keep the things, but at the same time didn't want them.

Oh, Sue, what a wonderful story. I could picture it all. I'm touched, truly. This story reflects more that we have in common . . .

BW, I think we're kindred souls. My dad was from NO, you know!
