For Janet...

I had a wonderful visit, yesterday, with my Pal, Janet... She encouraged me, to put my own image on the blog, instead of the gnarly statue, I have at the store... I always torture people, about putting their photo on, and always get them captured, one way, or the other... And, I think they are all beautiful... But... When it comes time, to put my own on...forget it.... Well, here I am... what you see, is what you get! I'm hoping, and trying, for a much slimmer version... Don't hold your breath...What you see, may be the best I can be...
I love Janet... she calls it, just the way she see's it... and I respect her, for her honesty... Another reason, I love this business so... If I didn't do Gold Rush, in Rochester, MN. our paths may have never crossed...
See ya soon, Janet... May will be here, before we know it! { hope we can hook up, before!}

{ I have added all of our show dates, to the calender of events, it's not too pretty, everything is double spacing... I even called my pal Sharon, {sweet repose} for help, we both scratched our heads... Well, it's in black and white, and you'll get the info, no matter how it looks!}
{ I had a better pic, but there was a roll of shredded up t.p. on the stove,behind me, that the cat destroyed... grrr....} {don't ask why it was on the stove....}

You are so pretty. And yes, you should have your photo on your blog. (I am still avoiding it!) I always enjoy your posts. Thanx for sharing your ideas and info!

Hey Barb, great photo. I'm like you, I love taking photos of everyone else, but I'm so critical of myself. But so good to see you smiling there! Hope you're having a great "pre-spring"!
hugs,
Debra

That's a great picture. I thought you were pretty cute in your faded overalls but you wouldn't let me take a picture. We just are what we are & you're just pretty darn cute. Good for Janet for making you come out of the shadows. Jan

I started reading your blog last summer. One day, I read all morning. . . You are interesting to read with your ups and downs, shopping adventures, and friends. At the time, my mom was in her final days after a long bout with cancer, we had closed our retail store because of the economy, and I didn't have a job. So, it was nice to get lost reading about your hectic life. I live in eastern NC and, I may never meet you - so, it is great to see this nice picture of you! Keep having fun! Debby

Debby,
A comment back, for you... since I can't seem to send a personal comment, to you, I will reply back, after your comments...
Thank you, so much, for the wonderful comment...and, I am so sorry, for your loss... Dare I say, I know all too well, how you feel...
In my heart, I know, we will all be together again, where the 'C' word, has no place...
I wish I would have known you, last summer... My Pal, Allyson, took me on a trip to the Outer Banks... and we were in North Carolina, for a week... You live in a beautiful State... I truly enjoyed traveling through...
I hope we meet, sometime, but you'll learn more about me, and my crazy life, right here... This is therapy, for me, and my blogger friends have been a Godsend...
Please take care, and keep moving foreword... one day at a time... And don't forget to look up, once in a while...
My Love to You...
Barb C.
