Farm Produce Truck

Hey all!

 

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

 

  My husband is in from out of town and the whole family is together.  Thankful….

 

I have to show you a little truck I picked up the other day.

 

I don’t think it’s very old, but it sure is cute.

I.M. MacDonald Fresh Farm Produce

 

Isn’t it a cutie?

 

Speaking of fresh produce…

 

I had a sweet and generous friend bring me two bushels of green beans yesterday.  Oh yeah, that’s a lot of green beans.

 

We have been breaking beans, cooking beans, and canning beans.

We have also been creating beautiful “stained glass windows” today.

 

See…

My sweet 9 year old has been crafting.  Crayons, paper, and an iron on low setting = lots of fun and prettiness.

 

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend, friends.

Hi Amy- How nice to have family and hubby home. Did you do the crayons between two sheets of wax paper? That's what I used to do with the kids and then we would hang them in the windows- xo Diana

I really like all three things you posted about! :)
The little truck is so sweet. You are going to be able to put together some cute vignettes with it.
I loooove me some green beans! What a blessing to have a friend bring you bushels of them! The ones at the grocery store usually look so bad. I am missing the yummy produce stand we had in Illinois last summer.
Love the beautiful window art. I have wanted to try this with my kids for a couple of years now and haven't gotten around to it yet.

Oh, my parents did canning when I was young. We had a huge garden. I don't do any of that - I wish I did, I just make freezer jam - it is really good though. Kids won't eat anything else.

Cute little truck, and I am liking the metal holder in the background also. Glad hubby is home. Have a blessed Sunday!

That little truck is so cute. Look at all those green beans! When I was a child, my mom would can beans. Oh, how I hated that...picking them all, snapping the ends off, cutting them. It felt like it would never end :)

Amy,
Lovely "stained glass" window from your daughter!!!Was watching a TV program the other day, metal cars and trucks date back to the later 1930's and 1940's...you may have quite a treasure there! They were appraising those @ $60.00! My favorite home grown vegetables are tomatoes and green beans!!! EnJOY them now and, especially, this winter!!!
Fondly,
Pat

Sounds like such a fun weekend... I love time together as a family. I have never canned green beans, but they are one of my favorite vegetables canned... and always remind me of my grandma's shelves in her kitchen loaded with them.

Isn't that little truck just adorable!

I have a husband home right now too, and I just happened to have prayed a prayer of thanksgiving for that about an hour ago. He is helping me shovel through the piles of excess in my house right now, both the ones I can see and the ones I can't.

It's such a blessing.

And I love the art from your daughter! That's pretty.

Even though our garden is small, we have still put up some veggies,too, thankfully! Lovely artwork; I love that kind of "stained glass".
(Side note: I love your playlist!:))
