Sorting...and Loading....{and...Dancing...}

I'm still unpacking treasures... Oh dear... Lots of interesting things... I am scouting for a couple Big Pieces... I keep thinking about an Amazing Cupboard, I saw on the trip to Chicago... It's a lot of money... but...Wonderful... It just keeps Haunting me....It is very Large... 8 feet wide...or so... 8 feet tall...or so... wonderful dry, buttery yellow...with old dry blue underneath... it has open shelves, on the right....{like a Buttery...{buttery; a shelving unit, where you would place butter, in crocks, to cool...on an early farm} and a full working cupboard, on the left side... I Love It! But...the money... oh dear...[sigh]....
I have to go to Illinois, to pick up a Wonderful...Early...Early Loom....In Shocking Blue... soon...{I would be pretty close, to where the cupboard is...oh dear...}
{I just called the guy...and had him put a 'hold' on that CUPBOARD!!!{I can't help myself...just writing about it.... gets me goin'!!!} he shot me a bit better price... oh dear...I need to sell...sell... sell....}{send a prayer...}
I gotta get goin...Gotta make it happen!
This is the Loom....{it's all pegged...so it is in pieces, now...we will put it together, and see how she sings...!} I will try to sell it, as a Loom... first... but...I hate to say it...I may have John make a very cool something out of it...a Most wonderful Table...or Island, type Counter...perhaps... This is Sooooo Old... {early to mid 1800's...and the paint is stunning, in person... very...very cool...}
Love to ya... Barb C.
{I am so glad, I don't know...if someone can see me, in the kitchen... Everytime I hear this song , as I'm working in the kitchen.....I find myself dancing... a Waltz... by myself....{oh dear... } I just love this song... it's happy... peaceful....}

Love your music. Don't blame you for danceing to it. It's been cold & rainy here again today but gentle rain. At least we're not having the storms. Just need some sun. I'll be anxious to see your butter-yellow cabinet. Take care!

Oh Jan...
I am just Heartbroken, about the South... I woke up, with the t.v. reporting this horror, in the wee hours....
My Prayers Go Out To All...
Please take Care of You...and Yours...
Love to You...
