One item I like to collect when I find them within my price range (the dollar and under zone) is lovely and pearly white milk glass from the 1930's.
(Pictured are my latest finds.)
Not only is it beautiful and useful, it is also a remembrance of our depression-era ancestors who struggled and survived in the hardest of circumstances.
They are a lasting tribute to our great-grandmothers.
They are a glorious example of resourcefulness and strength.
They are a beautiful reminder in these unprecedented times that when calamity strikes...
the home becomes its own industrious economy to survive and thrive.
We grow more, patch more, stretch more, reuse more, recycle more, reduce more, preserve more, conserve more, mend and make do more, and more importantly, we pray more...
We Homemakers make MORE of a difference.
“A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.”
~ Proverbs 31:10
Do you have anything you enjoy collecting that symbolizes something special?
(Note: I'll be sharing some little "snippets" here and there from some of my more special Instagram posts that I feel some of you may enjoy that aren't on it...)
