Ice...

No, my windows aren't made of frosted glass... They are all completely covered in Ice... At least all of the East facing windows... This really is nasty! I hope things clear off, before we have to load for the show! John and I are getting things all ready, and I think everything looks Great! I worked on a beautiful Empire Mirror, I harvested, while shopping last week, on the Mississippi, with Polly {pollyanns}, all it needed was a little cleaning. We also worked on the Cottage Dresser... I love early Cottage furniture... It's 1870's, or so, all hand grain painted, and hand constructed... It is really neat. This one has a super tall mirror, the dresser stands about 7 feet tall. The mirror, itself, is gone, so we will have to replace it... I might just hang a large Ironstone pitcher in the huge, ornate mirror frame opening, filled with a big fresh floral spray, for the show, and see if I can find a vintage mirror, if it doesn't sell... I can price it with a new mirror, and have it installed... I got several totes of smalls packed, and will do a few more... I'm feeling on the 'punchy' side today...Think I might have a sinus infection or ear infection coming on.... Every time I stand up, the world starts spinning.... { no, I haven't had any Margaritas!} { Hmm, maybe I need one...just kidding!} Well, off to work I go, see how things are goin', down at John's shop... I'd like to get a harvest table ready... and I'm recovering some sweet little ladder back chairs, to go with... I'll get a pic of them today... Barb C.

What a cool picture!
I'm sickened by hearing all the branches breaking. My dad's truck is sitting under a big branch that broke off this afternoon. AUGH!
Feel better.

Hi Barb!
I have a question that may seem easy for you but I have no clue. I have a 16" tall white pitcher that was my mother in laws. I have loved it for years. I would like to know more about it, but have no clue how to find out. I think it might be ironstone but not sure how to tell. Can you help?

I hate that ice. Nothing worse. Hope your show is a huge success. It's in the 60's here today & I have clothes on the line (is that mean!!!). Stay on your feet. Jan

Barb,

Have a great show. I'm sure it will look awesome with your new finds. I can't make it this weekend. Sounds like the weather should be better, but it's still very icy this morning.

Keep Warm,
Nancy

Hi sweetie! Can't wait to see your load at the show. I'll be at the shop packing today and working on stuff from home tonight. I'm getting psyched about doing a show... just hope the weather breaks for us. One thing is for sure if it does... people will want to get out! See you soon!
