I got the most awesome early birthday gift from my parents today! This bucket belonged to my Grandma Willoughby and she said that they used it to fetch water from the spring for their drinking water when she was a young girl. I love it!! I love the history of it and the oldness of it. (Is oldness a word? :)) Just looking at it makes me think of simpler times and the warmth of family. This bucket is probably almost 100 years old. So cool! Thanks mom and dad for passing it on to me. Now, I need some help coming up with a neat way to display it... anyone??
