The Queen....

Yes....
The Most...Beautiful....Gnarliest...Grungiest...
French...
Pier Mirror...
Has Fallen Down...
The Rabbit Hole...
{ I know how Ralphie's Dad, in 'A Christmas Story'...must have felt... about his 'Major Award'...
The Risque' Leg Lamp...
Holy Smokes!!!!
and...it's already on hold...for a private Home....
I stood there...and did my BEST...to talk her out of it...
but...I know...if it will fit...where she needs it to go...
The Queen....is gone....
I had the Boys...gently...so Gently...carry her in...
I stood there...in Awe...
I badly...wrenched my back...yesterday...Stacking concrete bird baths...up high...one on top of the other...guess...I went one, too high...
so...I'm useless...today...
Soaked in a Bubble Bath...for 2 hours...this morn....
and ate a lot...of the Crazy Antiquers Best Friend....'Aleve'...
but...can't lift...much...
{tho...I did drag in a Big Victorian Door...I keep telling myself...it's better to keep moving... and not get completely frozen....oh....dear...}
I can't begin...to tell ya...How Much...I Love...This Old Darling....
I Truly can't....
Love...to Ya...

{ My Friend...Ray...had stripped off...a lot of the gold paint....but he didn't do the base... so...I took a broken shard of glass { my 'scraper, of choice'...}...and gently scraped the base...'til it matched his work....yes...The Queen and I...have...Bonded...
Love...Her...}
{I had to ad these images...again...of the Incredible....Detail...of the Queen... oh my...I Melt...}
{I had to put...The Queen of the Silver Dollar on...for this...somewhat...Tarnished...{to some} Old Beauty... She truly has had quite a 'Journey'...  Bless...Her Heart...she is ...Loved.....Accepted....and...Welcomed...Down the Rabbit Hole....always...} {there is...something...about a 'Smoky Kingdom'....: ) oh my.... }

Oh my...you're right, no words to describe the gnarliness. I'm sad, I probably wont be able to see it, before it sells. BTW stop getting hurt.
