It's Almost Time!

We are about to pull the plug on the 21st century around here.

I have my pantry all ready to go. Flour, sugar, oatmeal, cornmeal, dried beans, etc.

The potatoes, onions, carrots, apples and squash were freshly picked this morning. ;0)

My sister and I set up a little parlor this afternoon. It will be a nice cozy place to relax in after everyone has been tucked into bed. We are having company for a Prairie Lunch on Saturday so the extra furniture will come in handy.

Here is our antique washboard. This morning I called my favorite antique store to ask if they had one. She said she did for $129.00! Way out of my price range!! I told her about our weekend project and she was so excited she walked all through the store until she found one for $20.00. And she gave me 20% off!! :0)

Grace and Emily haven't seen it yet. They will be SO suprised in the morning.
