Cupboards...Wash Tubs....Iron Fragments...Garden Furniture...Cupolas...Big Spiders...Darling...Field Mouse...Huge Cast Iron Farm Sink...and...Jesus...

Oh...my.....where do I  begin.... This day didn't turn out...anything...like I had planned...
The Only thing I had planned was to meet with my Sweet...Light Girl.. Julie...who was bringing me a 5 foot tall Crucifix...from a long...gone... Church...near Cascade, Iowa....
and...to Open....The Rabbit Hole..
As I was brushing my hair...early this morn...the phone rang...it was John...one of our neighbors, had some things he wanted me to look at.... so...I quickly got pulled together...so I could run there.... before I opened...
I found some fun stuff... {a Darling...Garden Settee...a Huge...Old...Cast Iron Farm House Sink...with a Tall Back Splash...and Drainboard! and...a Sweet...Old Wheelbarrow.... {those images, tomorrow..}
Came home...started getting Wind Fall damages...picked up...and the phone rang... it was a friend...from about 45 minutes South...that was cleaning out her parent's Farm.... she was having a Sale...had JUST...put signs up.... I Flew...
Gave John...the money....for Julie... and Flew!
Oh My!
She had Tons of Great Stuff!
{she said...after I loaded... she never dreamt... I'd get it all on the Ford.... : ) }
After I shopped the garage...she asked if I'd like to dig in the barn.... : ) ....
Oh...My....
We unearthed...some Grrrreat Treasures!
I found some....Gnarly...Old Stuff!
John helped me unload....when I got home...
as he picked up an old nail keg...a Big Fat Field Mouse...Jumped Out!!!!
Soooo Cute!
Poor Little Guy!
He must have had quite a ride!
Then...as I unloaded a stack of old drawers.....I saw...a Huge Spider...must have been the size of a Silver Dollar!... We found Safe Places...for both of them....
Then...Friends...stopped by...and also...loved some of the treasures....got them...loaded...and...made my delivery...
Whew...
It's Been...a Long...Long...Day!
I told my friend...at the Barn...as I was digging...and rooting... " If I should die...This Very Moment...it would be... The Perfect Way...to Go Out..." I hope... when it's my...Time.... I go out...Digging Through...an....Old...Iowa...Barn...What a Way...to Go!
I am...waaaaay...past Exhausted...
And...My Apologies...to Sweet...Julie...
but...all...in all...
What a Great Day!!!!
Hope...You had a Most...Wonderful Day...
as well...
Love...to Ya!
