Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

New England Bucket Bench

This was one of my buys from last week. I was with a friend when she bought it a couple of years ago. I liked it but said nothing. Then she traded it to another friend for a Southern bucket bench that was much more primitive.   Then the friend's friend who is also my friend had it in her shop for sale. Now it is mine.
