So...Sorry...if I missed you....

The 'Treasure'...of the day!
With Most Sincere......apologies...
I write this...
My intentions... were Grand...
had the Morning... Scheduled out...with Deliveries...and...knew...without fail...
I would be Down...the Rabbit Hole..before Noon...
{tho....I said I'd be here...in the Afternoon...}
The deliveries...went without a hitch...
Ate Pastries...and had a Lovely Visit...with Lovely Folk...this Morn...
Had The Grand Tour...of a Beautiful Home...and Gardens....
and...was Treated to a Scrumptious Jar of Home Made Pickles...
My Friend...who made these....from her Grandmother's Recipe... said it takes...several days...to make them...
A Lovely...Gift.... Thank You!!!
{from a Sweet Friends..Secret Recipe...: )}
Liz, and Miss. Scarlett...were my Morning Helpers...
it was all...Good...
The Amazing Bath Tub...found a most perfect Home...
and...the Old Cupboard...as well....
I was...actually...way ahead...of Schedule...to be Open...in The Afternoon...
so...made a stop...that wasn't planned...
Just...a Minute... that's all...it would be...
That's... where the trouble started...
I hustled through..and ran smack...into Sweet... John W.
It was So Great Seeing Him!
Lots of Hugs...and Kisses!
{and John....don't worry about me... : ) The Angels....remember...The Angels....
My Poor... Singed Feathered...Skinned Elbowed...and Battered... Guardian Angels...
They are Always...There... : ) }
As we were visiting...I spied a Tiny Little Book...
resting on a stack of Old Dishes...in a Showcase...
A Poetry Book...
Published in 1799...
oh my...
{it has all sorts of pressed Posies...between the pages...}
It was a bit...over my budget...so...we called the owner...another...Sweet Friend...
{time..was getting a bit short....but...No Worries.... I'd be Home...in no time... : ) }
The Owner of the Book...gave me a Wonderful Price...and said...he was Home...and..I really should come over... He had Buildings Full...
hmmmm....
Well.... he was... only... 20 minutes away...and if I hurried... I could still be down The Rabbit Hole...
Maybe...a bit late...but...not...'Too'...late...
{Buildings Full....! : )}
So I bailed in the Ford...and Flew!
I had great Fun ...visiting...and purchasing...Treasures...
{a Great Old Cupboard.... and all sorts... of Gnarly Things!!!}
The Ford was Loaded Tight!
As I left...I thought of a Friend...who might like some of them...
and gave her a ring....
I was... only.... half an hour away....
She said...as long as you are this close...
hmmm.....
By Then...it was getting...well...
late...
So...I drove to her place...and sold the entire load....
I came home...
with a book...
and....a Lovely...Jar of Pickles...
and...I missed some Folks...
So...So...Sorry....
{it's a Wonderful Book...
and...The Pickles... are...Scrumptious!}
I Will be here...Tomorrow...and Friday...
and...I'll Make it up...to those...I missed...
{somehow...I had a feeling....this day, was going to go...like this...I said I'd be here..in the Afternoon...and...I am...just...'Late...Afternoon'... {oh...dear...}  }
Tomorrow...and Friday...11 - 5.... Promise....
Love...to ya...
Barb C.

There are several...little leaves....and flowers...throughout...the Little Poetry Book.... I Love that.... Makes me wonder...who....they were thinking of... when they saved them...
There are Darling Poems...throughout...the Little Leather Bound Book.... Back in those days...'s' was in the form of 'f'...so...it takes a minute... to get the brain set.... very...very...Cool.... : )
