About Me

Fayette Co, KY, United States
I am a country girl stuck in the city, for the time-being. I enjoy the country way of life, and practice that in my home as best I can by canning and preserving foods, cooking and baking from scratch, crocheting, living vicariously thru the many blogs I follow about country life. I enjoy learning about raising livestock, and glean from my past employment and personal experiences of working with animals to fuel some of my postings. I have 5 cats, who keep my life interesting. And I am also an amateur poet. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this Farmer-gal who is caught in town, for now.

Way-Back Wednesday

As most of you know I am moving on Saturday. I have been going thru all of my storage boxes, and found these neat little figurines that I'd forgotten I had. My Mom gave them to me when she and my Dad were cleaning out my Grandpa Schanding's home after he passed away. Here are photos of the three figurines.
The cow is a little cream pitcher. And I think the donkey used to have something that would lie over its halter on its back. The pig is just a pig, albeit a little creepy looking! Here is a better shot from the side to see more of the figurines.
I do treasure these because they are so old, and my
Grandma Schanding probably picked them out. I never
knew her since she passed away in 1958. But in seeing
photos of her in her twenties, I look quite a bit like her.

Hope you enjoyed these little pieces for a Way-Back Wednesday.
Take care Ya'll, and have a blessed day.
From central KY - Fayette Co.

Liberty will be a madhouse this weekend b/c of the festival, but I hope you get the chance to have a slice of apple pie!

The polka-dotted pig is my favorite!

I love each of them. You'll find a great place for the little guys.

I love the figurines! My grandmother loved collecting any kind of animal figurines and I have a few of them here. I know what you mean about treasuring them because they belonged to your grandmother.

The cow and donkey remind me of Betsy and Jack! Now, all I need is a pig. lol..
Have a great day.

The milk pitcher is called a "Toby" but I can't remember why. I've an aunt that collects Toby's and they can be animals or humans; virtually anything whose design was to contain cream. Yours are cute, Kathy!
