I'M STILL HERE.........

............Frantic like the rest of you, trying to get everything finished up for our holidays.  Poor hubby is in the hospital recovering from major surgery with pneumonia as a complication.  After more than a week, it looks like he is finally on the mend, it will just be slow going for him for awhile.

  While running out of money for little luxuries for my new, old house, i decided to use what was on hand for the mudroom window.  Sometimes it;s true that the best things in life are free!  I love my "twig curtain".  The beautiful fern was a freebie from my friend Janice 2 years ago.  It was on her patio for the summer and come fall it was either me or the trash.  To show it's appreciation for the rescue, it just keeps on growin'

  The simple twig wreath is from a roadside harvest of larch branches from some very ancient, humongous trees. All that cost me was a few scratches and a stubbed toe! HA!

  I'm signing off now as I must get back to work!

Last week-end was the last Kane flea market until March.  In a way I feel sad about that because many of my fellow vendors and customers have become very dear to me and I will miss the fun and camaraderie of our week-ends together.  Through the years, something has happened that I did not expect to happen!  I feel deep affection for many of these people and look forward to being around them.  In a way we compete when we are vendors who sell next to each other or are in the same building and at times we might even step on each others toes, But it's not in a mean way and not intentional.  For the most part we respect and look out for each other. I love that this has evolved in this way, so to this I have to say....."I love you guys and in your individual ways, you have contributed much to my life's experience.  Thank you!"

This is shelf #2 in what I like to call my British "loo".  The ancient brackets holding up the drawer front shelf were found on top of a over flowing dumpster in the town of Burfurd in the Cotswold's of England. A 300 year old cottage was being gutted and the contents thrown away!  I would have loved to see what was inside the dumpster, but told myself to just be content with these priceless treasures.
