Bittersweet.... : )

My Sweet....Friend, Gail... handed me this Lovely...painting...of 'Bittersweet'...
as I was Flitting Around... The Sale... Friday Morn...
I stopped... and looked at it...as she handed it to me...
 she said..."This is for you..."...
I was Struck...instantly with Memories...of my Beloved...Sister...Chery...
I said...to Gail....
"This was My Sister's.. Favorite ....."
she said...
"I know... it was my Mom's...too...."
{Gail's...Mom...and Chery...left us... way...too...soon... }
She said...either her Grandmother...or Aunt... had painted it... years ago...
What a Lovely...Lovely...Gift... I will always Treasure...
Then...I know... where it will go...after...
Daughter, Liz...
She..is Soooo Her Aunt Chery....
and Loves... Bittersweet...and Fall Colors...
and...Loves...Gail.....: )
Thanks...Doll...
Love you...

This little old...High Chair... caught my eye...this morn...as Polly and I were heading out the door...
It's such...a Soulful... little... chair...
always...seems to 'Smile'... or...have Happy...Thoughts... surrounding it...
yes... I'm...
crazy...
: )
Tom and Paula brought this...Amazing Memory Jug...to The Sale...
I had to buy it...
So...Gnarly...
So...Sweet....
: )
The Peonies are Opening!!!!
What a Gift...they were to Polly and I...This Morn!!!
YAY!!!!
As we walked into the Gazebo... this morn...
I noticed the Old Rope Bed... right where I had put it...
but... really...looked at all of the Hand Turnings...
This was made...around 1840.. I would guess...
and...how much...detail... Hand... detail...
Solid... and Beautiful...
170 years...later...
oh my...
The Scissor Collection...
I keep gathering them...from Everywhere...and filling the Old Spooner Up! Up! Up!
I sold a few...over the weekend... but...I keep finding them...Everywhere!!!
Soooooo Cooooool!
I filled the Wagon...with Statuary...last night...
I'm going to 'Place'...it...today...: )
I...Love...That... : )
These...little Flowers...made me...smile this morn...
I had thrown all the unused wire flower baskets... in a pile.... a few weeks ago...
Today...I noticed... the Flowers were growing...Up...Through...Them!
too...funny....
: )
I brought the Old...Stoneware down... and stacked it.... yesterday...
Planted some Dill... along the Hen House... I have just a handful...of old Chairs...left....
I'll have to find... a Perfect...little...place...for them...
they are...Darling...: )
My...Dear... Best Friend...Jerri.... Gave me this 'Miniature Lilac'.... for my Birthday... Years ago...: )
{Miss Her...Sooooo}
I planted it next to The Hen House...thinking...it was...'Miniature'...
oooops....
The Bouquets are...'Miniature'...
{and...have a GIANT Aroma!!!}
Not...The...Bush!!!
{Jerri...Never Missed my Birthday! Always made me...her Famous..Jello Cake... we visited...every....day...
We...had the World...all Figured Out!}
Her Birthday... is coming up.... very close...to Our...Peg's...seems...my Closest Friends...throughout my life have been Gemini's... I think...it takes a ...Taurus...to understand...those Crazy...Twins!!!!
