" Gipsy"

My Treasure...of the Day.....
I spied this Amazing...mid 1800's Platter...while Alyson and I were at a show...a month or so....back...in Rockford, IL....
It Blew Me Away...I had Never Seen This Pattern!
 It is titled..."Gipsy"...{yes....with an 'i'...}
How Perfect....I Am...a Sort of Gypsy! Always...loading the Old Wagon.... roaming around the Territories.... Gathering... {There are a few...in the business....I usually refer to them as 'Characters'....}{ I remember one time...as I turned the bend...coming home....with the Ford Loaded High.... John said...all he could think of...is...'The Gypsy is Home...'oh my...}
 It was expensive.... and...money was tight... The vendor told me she was doing the Cedar Rapids Show....at Hawkeye Downs...{just minutes from me...this weekend...and...if she still had it.... and things might be better, financially....it may work out...}
Well....money...is still tight...
but...
I stepped up...
Had to!
It will be a Beautiful addition to the others...I Love So!
It was a Long day.... Covered a lot of ground...visited with wonderful Folks...
Life...is Good...
Got home...Late...Late...Late...
A Storm was rolling through...and I liked it...
I went to bed...Listened to the rain...
Beautiful ...rain...and saw the lightning flashes....through the window....
Love to Ya...
Barb C.
{I'm Closed today....more miles....to cover....and...my Wagon's Draggin'...a bit...already...oh my...}
