I am sorry to say alot of my platters from Maine, bowls, pottery and some of John's great grandmothers china got broken in the move. It wasn't the movers we had this time, it was the movers that helped John move everything into the storage space. The last movers told us they were hearing alot of broken pieces of things rattling in the boxes and didn't want to get blamed for it. I think I am the most upset about the huge platter I had bought in Booth Bay, Maine that had handpainted lupines on it!! John and I rented a house from our friend in East Booth Bay and we were there for an entire week checking out all the potters in the area. We had such a wonderful vacation, such lovely memories. I don't know if we will ever get back there again. Thank goodness my 2 boxes of Green Depression Glass that I have collected over years and years came through unscathed. I could tell by the way everything was broken that the movers had just dropped the boxes straight down. I guess they also didn't see that I had written FRAGILE in huge letters and put orange stickers that said FRAGILE all of these boxes. I was able to glue with Loc-Tite my pottery utensil holder that I bought in Sea Grove, NC back together! Nothing else was salvageable though. I am glad this is hopefully one of our last moves because every time we move there is something else broken, but this time was the worst!!
Sorry to sound so down after being so happy with our house and living here, but these things had meaning to us and when that is gone it is just hard.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
