Hitting the Wall.....

Oh Baby....I hit the Wall...today...fell asleep, after lunch, watching 'The Godfather'...{love that movie...}
When John came up... I went out to the FUSO...and gathered a few of the treasures.... From the trip home...just a handful....
Gnarly Stuff....
Love to ya..
I'm hooked on these Liquor Tags...{these aren't that old... maybe 30 years, or so...but FUN!} They remind me, of a Sweet Friend...and...I Like having them hanging around... had one, riding shotgun, in the little Ford...forever...and gave that one to my Sweet Pea!....So Happy it can't talk...oh dear!
More Liquor paraphernalia... oh my... I needed the silver wine stopper...{Like I have any wine to cork....after I open a bottle!} Actually, I do...but I have a favorite decanter, I pour extra wine, into...I mix it all together....yeah...yeah... sounds Crazy...but... it feels good, on my lips... Good Wine...is always...Good Wine..no matter! {ahhh.... the Bohemian, that I am....or...maybe...it's the Little, French Influence.... Really...I'm sure it's as my Dad said...The Shanty Irish in Me!!!!! Whatever...It Is... It's Good!
I bought 2, of these wonderful, large bird cages.... I can just see them filled with Flora! Ahh...SPRING!
Gnarly...gnarly tote.... Love it! {Old!}

Wire Muzzles...Like 'em!
Woven Samplers...these are soooo cool!
Early 1900's hand made lace...oh dear....
Gnarly...Gatherings....
1840's Ledger....'nuff said... oh my....

These are a Few Little Treasures... I'll be adding more.... I haven't had the stomach, to go inside the Shop.... It was totally destroyed.... annihilated....when I shut the doors, behind me... so...I'm Gutting It...
I just have to have a little strength, built up...before I take it on... oh my...
It's Going to be AMAZING...when I'm done...
{Oh Baby...I can see it done...in my mind... It will Blow Your Mind...{another reason, Nashville, is a Great Trip...Inspiration!} 
I Will be Posting Show Dates, tomorrow...
and...a very...
Special Event....
OH MY!!!
Love to Ya!
