Adventures.... Life...is..Truly...a Highway...

Truer words... have never been said....
Life...isn't much...without...
Adventure...
Whether...it be...through a Wonderful Book...an Old Photo...or...
Driving Down...Life's Highway...
Never Knowing...What...may be...just...Around The Bend...
ahhhh...
The Journey... : )
{Thanks, Aud...for sending it to me... Love ya!}




I have had a 'Standing Order'...for a Big Cupboard...for a Dear Friend... so...when my Sweet Friend, Kevin called...early...yesterday morning...about one..{Kevin said...it Had My Name On It!!! It was Big...White... Chippy Paint...Old...Old...Old...and...did I say...it was BIG!!!? One Piece...} that was in a Garage...at an Estate Sale...
 {Thank You...Kevin!: ) Margaritas...are in Order!}
 I bailed in the Ford...and Flew...
It is Big... and..it was so funny... when I told the Girl...I'd take it... {The look on her face...was Priceless...;: ) } She basically said..." You...and what Army????"... I told her..."No worries...I could get it myself...: ) "...
{why do Folks..always doubt me? I must look...weak...or something...: ( They should talk to the Folks...that come along with...on My Adventures!!! or Pegadoo!...she'd reassure...for...sure... : )
No Worries! I Love...Dancing with The Big Boys! }
Everyone...chipped in... tho...and that was So Nice!
{Thanks...to the Kind Man...who came out of nowhere..{Angel} and lent us a hand...: ) }
My Customer...Loved It!


Picked this up...at a New Shop...in Marion... {Loved It!} 'The Brick House'....
I was in a Hurry....when I drove past...enroute to The Estate Sale...
{I had heard good things about it...but hadn't stopped in...}
I was in a Hurry...heading Home..as well...and had only moments... but sure had a Lovely time...
 Don, the Proprietor...was Wonderful...
Had some Incredible Treasures...
Beautiful...Victorian...Pieces...
This...being one..of them...that came Home...with me....
a Beautiful Store...
{Marion, Iowa...has some Incredible Antique Stores... You could spend an entire day...just there... : ) }
 
 
I found these Amazing...{there is a pair} Vintage French Candle Sconces... at The Brick House...as well... These...are staying...in the House... We have them mounted to the wall...already...
I don't keep much...these days... not a Luxury...I can afford... But......these... were so.... perfect... for the House...
I'll call them..my Early Christmas Present....and...not feel guilty...about keeping them...
 
Found some Wonderful Little Treasures...at The Estate Sale...{Peg...will be Thrilled...with the Christmas Goodies...: ) {I didn't Have... a Swan...Like That One!!!} 
 
These Beautiful...Beautiful... Vintage Drapes... {a Dozen..or so..panels..} are heading down...The Rabbit Hole...
Wish...I had a place for them...in the House... LOVE THEM! Thanks, Kate... I do..Love Them...So!
