Welcome to the Ann Tucker Blog!

Welcome to my personal blog. Thanks to my son for building this neat blog page. I decided I wanted to give my thoughts and words to the world and hope they have some meaning and memories to grandparents (and others) everywhere. I am a retired civil servant (35.5 years with the Department of the Air Force), mother of two and grandmother of five. My maiden name was Scaling and I was married to Tilford N. Tucker. I raised and put two great children through college so I have a lot of experiences to build on. After retirement I became a webmaster (working for my son) for some of our family websites: ShaggyDuck
Have a fun time and a great day, bookmark this site and come back often!!!!

Grannys Thrifty Treasures

I got this darling Cabin Christmas Tree
to use as table centerpiece that

will match my Cabin/wilderness decorations
at Christmas Time. Only $2
(needs a little fluffing out)

Seems a lot of Christmas Decorations
were out there today. Got this door
Decoration for $1

This was a little more for $3 than
my other items but will look darling
next summer full of Zennias

I got a scrapbook for $1, some books for
Grandkids 25 cents each, 2 sets of cannister
jars, one blue for $2 and one green for
$5 (to use for buttons, rubber bands, etc)
and three silver buckets with a stamped
design for 25 cents each.

Great finds! We usually go to all the rummage sales, but we haven't done it as much this year.

The canister will look wonderful with flowers next year.
My favorite is the door hanging...partial to anything bird themed.
