Thanks... for the Lovely Weekend... : )


Betty and Jean....
These Girls... have came and visited... over the years...
and...never miss a Midwest Show!
I am in awe... of their Knowledge....
and Decorating abilities....
I always so.... look forward to their visits...
along with others...over this weekend...
: )
It was Great...meeting my Friend from Texas!
She said she'd come all this way... to see me!
{and..J.B. Knacker! LOVE BRENDA!!!}
I met Lots of New Folks...as well...
Some, who live close... yet..never knew I existed!
I listened, carefully...to folks...
over the weekend...
The comments...
and... I've really started thinkin' about some things...
It's all... churning... in my head....
Mark invited me out for supper.... on his way home...from the Midwest Show...
we had a long... therapy session...
I shared with him...
some of the... feedback...
from the weekend...
I feel... a 'Change'... coming on...
I can't put my finger... on exactly... what I'll be doing...
but...
There's gonna be some...
'Changes'...
and...all for the Good...
Exciting.....!!!
{no worries... it won't be... changing my Love... for this "Gnarliness"...
it's on the business...end... and tweaking a few other areas... : ) }
 
Jean and Betty....
Love 'em!


When Jean...told me she had written a Book... I Immediately...said..."SEND ME ONE!!!"
I have had the wonderful opportunity... to visit Jean, and Sax's Lakeside Home... near Oskaloosa...
It's... Simply... Stunning....
Jean is very gifted.... with Interior Design... and so... incredibly Knowledgeable... about Antiques...
I couldn't Wait...to read her book!!!!
Then...I saw... she had included The Rabbit Hole... in it!!!
Oh My!
I was so taken back... for her...to have included it... as a part of her Antiquing Journey...
I...am...humbled....
If you would like a copy... let me know...
{ simplyiowa@yahoo.com }
and I'll get you in touch with Jean...
She is a Lovely... Lady...
 it was so much Fun... reading about her friends...
and...Lifetime...
Love...
of...
Old...

THANKS So MUCH...
to All... who Slid... down the rabbit hole
This Weekend!!!
: )
It's always Great...when the Midwest and Collector's Eye Shows are in Town... : )
Thanks...So Much....to the Folks at The Shows...for speaking so kindly...
of the rabbit hole... and sending Folks... our way...too...
: )
United we Stand....!
Folks come from near and far...to attend...
Many...I only see...during them...
Sadly...
I couldn't go...
had to meet some folks... and help load...
but... I heard it was Over the Top!
as...they always are... : )
I'm headed out the door... have MOUNTAINS of Work...
ahead...
and Many Miles...to cover...this week...in opposite directions...
 as I bought things over the phone... when I couldn't slip away... over the weekend...
and...

Hey Barb...fun post! You should not be shocked that you made it in the book...you are so book-worthy! Thought of you the other day as I was in Duluth and visited Sarah's booth in the antique mall...smiled as some of the beautiful stuff in there looked like it may have traveled from your place. I am going to try to make it to your beautiful shop in December! Take care.
