Well.... I made my way... into the Arctic Tundra...

oh my...
It was 10 below....
when I went out... and Cranked... on The Ford...
yesterday Morn...
He rolled over...about as fast....as Polly and I do... when climbing out from under the
 Nice... Cozy.... Quilts... these last many Mornings...
But... the Faithful Ford... begrudgingly... Fired Up...
and Awaaaay we rolled!
I got a call... on a pair of Corner Cupboards....{along with some other...'Gnarliness... : ) }
 that had been dismantled, from a 1919 Home... in Cedar Rapids...
The Folks... who...carefully removed them....  were wonderful....
I told them... I'd buy them...but...I didn't want any part, of the removal....
I, have salvaged... many pieces, over the years... but... they were in houses that were coming down.... This was a remodel ....and I wanted No Part...of It...
I didn't want to have any responsibility.... for damage to the walls... that they were going to be restoring...
I gave 'em...my best advise....
on the removal... and if... they didn't make kindling out of them... I'd take 'em...
{Thanks, Gail... for the call... : ) }
They were perfect... he took it...slow...and easy.... and saved every piece...
: )
As I was heading over...to get them....
I had a thought...
an....Idea.... how to use these... in Nashville... at Heart of Country....
I was SO Excited... I called Peg....
and ran my idea...past her....
She was On Board!
{When the Mad March Hare.... gives a Thumbs Up.... to one of The Hatter's...Crazy... schemes... without thinking about it...for half an hour...
twitching her ears...and Flinging a Tea Cup...at my Head... while gazing...
 Cross Eyed...at me...
I know... it's a Great...Idea! }
The Booth... at Heart... is going to be themed...
'The Rabbit Hole... at Heart...'
and is going to be a Thimbleful... of the Gnarliness.... and 'wonder'... it always... fills me with...when I pass through the Doors.... falling...into... another... world...
A Little...Old Fashioned... Seriousness...
{just..enough...to keep ya grounded...}
 with a LOT... of Whimsy....
{that always... keeps the Mind... Smiling...
and... Intrigued ... : ) }
When they commingle....
: )
it's... Magic....
and.... somehow... in the slight...whisper...of 'chaos'...
 envelopes... me...and others....
{who... are as 'round the bend'...as myself...: ) }
with a feeling...of...
Comfort....
: )
I'm not going to share.... these... Mad... Ideas....
until...the booth is set...at Heart...
I'm saving... this... for the Show....
: )
I HOPE to See You There!!!
Heart of Country!!!
{Opryland Hotel...
{OUR HAPPY PLACE!!!
It's Always...70 degrees...
Waterfalls... Flowers...in BLOOM!!!}
February 13th.... 14th...and 15th!!!
{sigh.... }
Love...to ya!
