Beauty...in The World...

 
Yes...there is...
Beauty...
in The World...
: )
Yesterday....
I spent the day...Enjoying...Every...Moment...of it...
I had an Antiquing Appointment...before Noon...
and gathered...some...Lovely Treasures...
Then...met with Melissa...and her Darling Family...
{Jacquie's Daughter... from the Estate Sale...: ) }
She...upon arrival...
handed me... one of Jacquie's....
Beautiful....Paintings....
as a Gift....
: )
I tried...to explain...
The Pleasure...
The Gift....
was...All...Mine....
Just...finding the Peace....
The Soulfulness.... that was so... Enveloping....
from the first...moment....
I found myself.... in her Mother's  Home....
{Sanctuary....}
at a time...when my Soul...needed it...
so...desperately...
What... a Gift....
I will Treasure.... this...always...: )
After...leaving Melissa...
I bailed in the Ford....
Picked up...a Great Load....!
Love the Tin...{Zinc} Building Front!
{it's going to be made into a Store Counter! }
and...all of the Dibby Dabbys!
I am meeting with some Folks...today....
then...am going to look...at More Treasures!
{The Rabbit Hole is Closed...
accept by Appointment....
and...what I Post.... is not for sale....
 until the Memorial Day Weekend Sale...
I will...however sell... what was here...during The Garden Party....
or...Prior...}
It's...a Beautiful...Sunday...in Iowa...
Hope...it's Beautiful...
Where You Are...as well....
: )
Love to Ya..
Barb C.
 
Melissa....and a Beautiful 'Heart' Painting...by her...
Most...Amazing...Soulful....
Mother...
What a Beautiful...Gift...I will...
Treasure...
Always...
 
 
Jacqueline... Titled this....Beauty...
"She Who is The Delicacy of Beauty...Living Within Your Heart"...
It was painted... in 2000
Lovely...Lovely...
: )
ahhhh.
The Journey...
Love...this Beautiful.....Angel....
She is Cast...Iron...
and...so...Very...Very...Old...
She will be...at The Memorial Day Weekend Sale....
I look forward...to enjoying her...until then....
yes... I do...
: )
This...Old...Massive Tin and Zinc....Store Front...from the mid 1800's.... is...
a Pile...of Fragments...
I'm going to have John...work his Magic....
and Create...an Amazing....Store Counter...with it...
oh my....
I noticed...as I strolled through...The Rabbit Hole....yesterday...
how...many...Beautiful Vintage Lighting Pieces.... that have landed there....of late...
One...can Never....have...toooooo Many!!!!
Love...Love...Love.... This Old Wire Clam Basket....
oh my...: )
Seems...I have been also...Gathering...some Very Unusual...Pails...
This One....
is...
Awesome!
Love...this early....1900's Table Lamp....{I have one in the House...that's similar....}
Love the Vase...in the Center!

Picked up...these Gnarly Funeral Home...Vase Stands.... yesterday...
oh my....
: )
Let There Be...Light!!!!

I so...enjoyed...the time...I spent...in the Green House...yesterday....
The Pansies...and Violas.... are...Smiling...Big!
and...Their...Perfume...Filled...The Old...Glass...Structure....
It was almost...
Intoxicating!
yes...
it was....Lovely...
When Val, and I cleaned the Old Fountain....
just before The Garden Party...
Peg and Liz....were so...Sad...
All of the Gnarly...Grungy...Moss...
was gone...
I reassured them...
It wasn't gone...
Give the Old Darling...a little time...
and...'Life'....
would once...again...return...
: )
{sigh....}
yes...
It is...coming....to Life!
The Moss is growing....
and the Beautiful...Green...
with...it's...Promise...of  Spring...
has returned....
with All...of it's...Glory...: )
 
As...I closed the Door....
leaving...for the Night...
I peeked through the door....
for a moment....
and...nearly....went back inside....
What a Gift....this...Little Rabbit Hole...
has been to me...
Such...a Blessing...
I think...of All...of the Angels...that have passed over...it's...little
Threshold....
Blessings...

OH Barb, the painting absolutely took my breathe away!! Please let me see it in person when next we meet. A heart no less! That woman just keeps giving and giving. I wore a Jackie necklace today...I feel so special when I wear her jewelry...I truely wish I'd have known her, but I guess the season to know Jackie for me was after she went home as she has touched my heart so much.
