with a Whisper

And in the quiet of a summer day, my first-born girl kitten at the farm is gone. This is
one of those extra difficult losses, because she just never came home.  So we search 
& call for her, we check outbuildings & treetops.  Over the 6 years Annie 
gifted us with her sweet ways, we knew this day would come.  Such is the life of a barn cat.

Whisper are missed!  May her memory be for a blessing.

special find

In recent years, we seem to have found our share of very special
vintageness!  It really shows that wonderful items are out there if you
just look.

This 1892 Herbarium is one of my special finds!  I found it tucked away on
a table at a thrift shop....paid no more than a couple of dollars for it.

To many, it may not look like much....but tucked inside are catalogued
botany samples from the late 1800's.

I was amazed to find it still intact...and treasure it.

I will share about a Planetarium Globe we just found in another post.  We
are awaiting word on a potential buyer from a national market.
Our Antique Mall noted that it was really too unique & valuable a find
to sell it there!  

Pieces of history...found!

Friday was my first auction of the nearby Brackett.
The auction was at a charming hobby farm, dispersing almost
90 years of an estate.  The skies were blue, the bidders & auction
folks were amicable. I sat under a shade tree enjoying every moment.

Dave & I bid & won quite a few items.  My favorite find is
the Eau Claire County Plat Map.  I liked it for the vintage
graphics and the color.  Little did I know that it showed the
county sectioned by farms....and there was our farm.  We
guess that the map was in an Agriculture Office--and is from
the 1930s-1950s based upon the roads.

This is a keeper and brought many other bidders over to look 
closer.  Not a bad find for $25.00!

It found a home in our upstair's Study.  
I think it was meant to come home with us!
