Holiday Open House....History...and...The Truth....

The Holiday Open House...
 is 'History'...
Another...Great...Day...
In So... Many Ways... : )
and...about
'The Truth'...
well...
as I sat...this Evening...by Candle Light...
I thought...
I am... much...like the Mad Hatter...
Wear my Emotions...on my Sleeve...
kind of like...
a 'Mood Ring'...
I share things...
Openly...
Life...
Honestly...
I Learned...'Sales'...Early...in my Life...
and...to be good at 'Sales'...
well...
 the way I go about it...
is...
Totally....Wrong....
I could Smile...Paint...a Most Beautiful Picture...
Sugar Coat...Everything...: )
 and Sell....
yes...I could...
{Truly...I Could...}
and be Very...Good...at it...
But...
That's...not who I am...
What you see...
well...
is what ya get...: )
The Truth...
{it is...what it is...}
After all of the Upside Downess...
of recent...days...
I wondered... who would... ever come visit...
Let Me Tell Ya...
I was... Floored...
Stunned...
and....
so Very Blessed...
The Folks...who came to visit...
Knowing...Full Well...What..and Who...
they were Walking in...to see...
Angels...
They...are Angels...
I didn't mention Chery T.
who...made a Point...of Visiting...yesterday..
She is a Dear...Soul...I have known for years...
Loved...Loved...Loved...her Mom...
who passed away...several years ago...
I think of her...Every Time...Chery walks through the door...
She didn't come...to buy...
she came...to see me...
That...Touches my Heart...More...Than...Anything...
Patti...from Fern Hill...
She couldn't come...during The Open House...but...came early...
and...we shed...tears...together...
Blessings...Blessings...
It's the ones...
that call... or visit...
Knowing...
It isn't going to be 'Pretty'...
{Any of It...Me...or The Store...}
oh my...
All I can say is...
I feel Very Blessed...
The Ones...
who stepped over debris...and the Shop Vac...
drove...for Miles...
and reset...displays... helped...drag things off of shelves...
and...simply...
Held Me Up...
well...
Honestly...
The Truth is...
I Feel...Mighty...Blessed... : )
Thanks...to Everyone...who popped in...today...
Angie...and Family....: )
Amy...My...Crazy...Fun...Soulful...Amy...
{they were Gifts... : )}
Jim...and Mike...
Mark...Shannon and Sara...
Cindy...and Tom...
Wanda and Terry...
What Wonderful Angels... : )
I could go on...and on...and...on...
{you know...I could...: ) }
LOVE...
To You All...
and Thank You...for Being Here...
Even...when...Life...isn't... "Pretty"...
Sometimes...'The Truth'...is...Ugly...
but...Angels...like the Ones...who Fell...
Down The Rabbit Hole...
This Weekend...
well...They aren't
'Pretty'...either...
No...
They are...
BEAUTIFUL...

Have had this Little Fountain...since I Opened The Rabbit Hole....
It Shined...Throughout The Weekend...
it...truly....did... : )
Called it a Night...around Six...The Party's Over....
The Candles...have all...burned down...
I Popped the Cork...on a Bottle of Champagne....
{The Cork...Blew...like it was coming out of a Twelve Gauge Shot Gun...
Flew 12 feet across ... the Green House...
and Broke...an Old..Red Christmas Ornament...
oh my... : )
The Party...is.... Over...
I shared the Champagne...with Amy....
and...what was left...I Hauled to the House...
and Drank...Straight out of The Bottle... : )
I am tired...
so...very...tired...
but....
Life... is Good... : )
so...Very...Good...
Ahhh...Amy...
She found the Vintage Leopard Collar...and Cuffs... Down The Rabbit Hole... this Eve...
She came walking out......into the Green House...
Sashayed... them...
 and...asked "How Much?"...
 I said..."Merry Christmas!"...
{They...are soooo Amy...oh my...}
She is such...Sweet Spirit...
{Crazy... : ) { but then...all the Best People Are : )}... and...so Sweet...}
{They Will...be Loved... : ) }
Finally....today...
Hung the Old Buggy Seat Back.... like I had wanted it...
Upside...Down... to Create a Shelf...
I Soooo Love It...
Knew....It would...be Perfect....
{This came from the Farm...Dad lived at... back in the '40's...
oh my....: ) }
'Simply... to They Cross...I Cling'... yes....I do....
This....Amazing Vintage Lamp...has a Bow on it...Year 'Round.... yes...it does... : )
 
Ahhh...Here's an Angel! I gotta tell ya... Cindy N. Is a Most...Amazing Woman!...
{and... she looks Damned Good... in a Hat!}
What a Blessing...she has been to me... and...So Many...
What can I say...
but...
"Love Her!"
My Two...Favorite Girls!!!!
'The Truth'... Pure....and Simple... : )
