The Eagles- DESPERADO-HD

Load.... from What Cheer.... and.... Peg.

Found.... another.... darling.... little....'Sandbox....Toy....Truck'....
Love 'em.
They remind me...of Dad... and John.
Priceless. 

It was an insane.... morning.
Had so much to get done.... then... take a load of vintage concrete to What Cheer.
My Friend, Pat.... offered to sell some of it for me... in her booth. : ) 
{Liz...and Miss. Scarlett watched over the rabbit hole. : ) }
Pat and I... unloaded... then... I proceeded to 'shop'.... : )
bought a load... and have to go back... for another.
oh my.
It was Great... visiting... with everyone. : ) 
I bought the Coolest... Iron Pieces.... from my Friend, Sean. 
{He and his Dad... always have 'The Cat's Meow'... stuff. : ) }
They are BIG... Iron Pieces... with Hearts... in them. They are dated from 1901.
Another Friend... helped me figure out what they are.
He thinks... they are the Roller... off of a Steam Roller. 
I... think so... too. 
Way...Cool.
I found the little Truck... with Jeff S. ... and another Pile... of  neat stuff... from... 
Jeff L.
I shopped... only with 'Friends'... this trip.
Money is tight.... and... if I'm going to 'buy'... I'll shop with them... first. : )
They all... had Great stuff... but... I could only spend... so... much. 
{oh my.... if only... I were a wealthy woman.... : ) We'd All... be Rich! }


Bought Three... of these... Awesome Lights.
{They are WAY Cooler... in person. : ) }
This is a Large... Dough Raiser.
Victorian... and... Amazing!
I picked up... windows.... ladders.... Barn trolleys....metal lawn chairs....pin cushions... fabric... light fixtures.... a Pile.... of Grinding Stones....
etc.... etc....etc.
Loads... of Old... Soulfulness.
oh my...
yes... I have to go back... or send Liz. : )
I wrote on fb last night.... about... Peg.
I found out... Monday.... Peg's Little Chloe... had cancer.... and Peg... let her go... the day... I was setting up... at Junk Jubilee.
oh my.
She waited to tell me... until Monday.
oh my.
{Chloe.. is on her bed.... on the left side of this image.... looking at Peg. }
They were.... inseparable.
This... is the Last thing... in the world... Peg needed.
She and I... have cried... for the last couple of weeks...so... worried... about Chloe.
I worry...so... about Peg.... and have... for the last three years.... through her battle... with cancer.
Wishing... so... we lived closer.
but...
I knew... she had Mike....He... Loves her so..... and is sooooo Good to her... : ) : ) : )
 {This will sound strange.... }
but... I rested easier.... knowing she had... Chloe.
: )
Chloe... was her little rock.
 : )
Like...my Polly. <3
Humans... simply... can't 'give'... you... what a Beloved...Hound... can.
They... are... Angels.
I... couldn't be in this house... without my Polly.
Should... anything... happen to her.... I will.... have another... 'Guardian'.... at my side.
Immediately.
{I never would have... years ago.}
I told Peg... something... I never thought I would.
I said... "Go... find... another 'Angel'.... He or She.... won't be Chloe....
She's waiting for you... at Heaven's Gate.
 but...
 they will Love You... and Give You... someone... to Love. : ) "
She said... she wouldn't.
 said...
she didn't know... how many weeks... or months... she has....left.
 Doesn't want to burden Mike... or... Love a Little Critter... then... leave it.
oh my.
I thought about it... for awhile... after we hung up.... and called her back.
I said.... "Peg... none of us know... how many 'moments'... we have.
Don't deny... a little Angel... the Gift... of Your Love...
 or...
Yourself...
the Love...
they will Give you... in return. : )
 That little Angel.... may add.... much more.... than you know....
 maybe in days... months... or years. : ) "
I played Desperado.... for Peg.....
because.... she Needs... to let... somebody Love her...
<3

and said....

oh my. 
: )
oh... my. }

My Favorite Things

I simply... remember a few of my Favorite Things...

After... yesterday... and feeling so blue.
I woke up... in the night...
and... as Miss. Scarlett sings so....well....
I...
"Let it go...".
: )
I gathered the mail... this afternoon, to find a card.
It was from a Lovely... Family... that had visited the rabbit hole, a couple of weeks ago.
I so enjoyed visiting with them.
I have so much fun... with Children. 
I Love... to see them... take in... the rabbit hole.
: )
It's fun... to show them...how the old treasures.... work, and were used.
Encourage them... to 'touch'. : )
Learn their interests....
They are always... always... so good. : )
In nearly 20 years.... I have never had a problem with a Little... Person.
any...person... of any age....in the shop. : )
They sent me images, that their Great Uncle had taken...years ago...
He was a Photographer, from Mystic, Iowa.
He also worked in Chicago.
I would Love to see their collection. 
This... made my day. 
: )
I have several.... letters... tucked away... from Folks, I've met down the rabbit hole.... over the years.
They... are Priceless.... Gifts.
When 'things' go wrong.... and.. I scratch my head.... trying to understand....
I look through the Beautiful....Heartfelt...Gifts... of 'Word'...
 from Little People... 
and Big ones... 
that have crossed my path.
: )
who... were so Thoughtful... to send... such.... Blessings....
that Forever....
Uplift.
Love to ya...
Barb C.





Junk Jubilee.....

Junk Jubilee... was Over the Top...
My Friend... Jo... told me... as she waited to get inside.... on Opening....
Folks were lined up... for three blocks... to get in.
oh my.
I can't Thank Bob and Jo... enough...for taking us into....their Home.
They took Great Care... of us.
Miccia Humphrey, her Family and Staff.... are also... Over the Top.
The Customers...and Fellow Vendors...  were Awesome... as well.
It was Great.... all the way around.
Things Sold... like Crazy.... for Everyone.
There were Many... Happy Faces.
Lots of Energy!
People came from Far... away...
 The Gnarly Old Windmill Head.... went to Indiana...
: )
I got teased.... as we carried it in.... several people asked if I'd had my tetanus shot....
: /
I said I'd handled this old rusty stuff.... for so long.... tetanus.... runs from me. : )
It was the first thing that sold.... on opening. : )
It was long days... and nights....
I reset the booth... daily.... brought in new things... every day.
Many did...
Thanks so Much... to Mark... Liz... Kelsey... Brandon.... and Scarlett....
for their Help.
Thanks so Much... to Jo... and Bob... for Helping....Lug Things. : )
Jo helped Fluff the Booth... the night before Opening...
She has quite a 'Touch'.
 She and I did Nashville..... 'Heart of Country' together many years ago....
I met her... through the Rabbit Hole... as a 'customer'... way back...in the day.
She and her Friend, Sharon... would come shop..... we had Much Fun.
Jo and I visited about that.
Jo... was buying, and decorating with what is called the 'Junk' look...long before... it was 'cool'.
I'm gearing down.... for a day or two.
Try...and regroup.
My body... mind... and soul.... need to regroup.
There was much... that slammed me in the face.... yesterday.
on so many.... levels...
much....
I was 'tested'... and failed.
Then... talked to Peg.....
her.... little Chloe... passed away.
oh my.....
as tuff as things are.... around here....
I'm sure... Peg would have traded troubles with me.
I could find no words... to comfort her.
oh my.
oh my.
I'm going to work around here.... this week.
I was going to go look at some things... yesterday, that a Friend has... but... I couldn't find my feet.
I'll go... today.
He always has such... Lovely things. : )
He is a Sweet Heart. : )
I'm taking some things to What Cheer this weekend.
 My Friend... Pat... {Privy House Antiques} asked if I'd like to bring a few pieces of Concrete to put in her booth.
{She's a 'Sweet Heart'.. too. }
: )
I'll have the shop open this Thursday thru Sunday.... 11 'til 5.
Love...to ya.

Suffering...
People... Humans... suffering.
My Heart... aches... for all of them.

They will Love You... when a Human... won't.
Peg knows it... John...knew it... as...do I.
I read...once.... 
"There was only one Man... who walked this Earth...
with the Unconditional Love... of a Dog.
and...
He's been gone... a couple thousand years."....
They carry us... through the Storms.
The Angels... that never leave our side.

Jo Dee Messina Bring on the rain Lyrics

one step... at a time. {sometimes... only inches.... }

Thanks... to everyone who popped in... this weekend.
{Dave and Shelly...{Hoppy's in La Porte City, Iowa }
They... are such... Gifts.... <3 }
: )
It's quite an adventure...down the rabbit hole... these days... to say the least.
: )
I've been working... on things... here and there....
at a snails... pace.
I have been so sick.
Early last week... I came down with a nasty sinus infection....
now...
it's in my lungs.
I am so worn out... it's all I can do... to climb out of bed...in the morning.
I've had Friends... call... and... I don't even have the energy... to talk. 
For so long... my mind.... has kept me down....
 now.... my body.... betrays me. 
When I look around the rabbit hole....
I just want to cry.
There is so...much... to be done.... but... I don't have the energy..... to begin.
I've gotten to the point... that...I really don't care.
There's nothing I can do about it... anyway.
It is... what it is.
Thankfully... those who have come through... have been...Wonderful...
: )
Gifts...
Blessings.
The shop will be closed the 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th....
I'll be at Junk Jubilee... at the Fairgrounds in Des. Moines.
See ya there....
: )
Love... to ya.
Barb C.
{It's Pouring... Rain... here... tonight.
It's so heavy.... it looks like Fog.
oh my.
bring it on....

In Iowa....
we say...
with the Blessed Spring... and Summer Rain....
"That's What Makes the Corn... Grow. : ) "
but...
to some...
in Iowa...
 It's just another...
 rainy...
foggy...
dreary...
 night.
but...
 tomorrow's  another... day.
and...
I'm thirsty.... anyway....
: )
so...
bring it...on. }




Ran across this bunch of papers.....
dated from the late 1700's to early 1800's.... this afternoon.
I put them in the Old Cherry Pewter Cupboard.... top.
It dates... from the same time period.
Thought... they'd have a lot... in common. : ) 

I was moving things around... this afternoon....
I LOVE.... the Red Winged Blackbird's Nests.... that Charlie's Farmer Friend gave me.
memories.
: )

Love these little footed Ice Cream servers.
They came from Michael's ... in Rochester.

I wrote a Long post....
this evening.
Posted it......
Then...

The below tune....
says it all.
: ) 
Thank You....
: )
Each...
and...
 Every... Single....
One...
of You.
: )
A Friend... said.... today....
as she was walking away....
"I miss you."....

I simply... have to find.....
my breath.
my...
feet.

Celine Dion - Because You Loved Me (Official Music Video)


Sunday, April 12, 2015

Thank You.

I captured these images.... as I was closing the doors... for the night.
oh my....
: )

I want to Thank... Everyone... who stumbled their way... through....
the rabbit hole... this weekend.
: )
I have battled a toothache... for two weeks.....
thought I could make it through... until next week.....
but...
I...couldn't function.
couldn't....sleep.
The University got me in... on Friday.
{The Molar... didn't want to leave... 
It took two Dentists... over an hour... to extract it.
 Then...it broke... and they had to cut it out.
My mouth... is full of sutures... and..frankly... I am...a mess. 
Seems like the rabbit hole... and myself...always reflect one another... }
Thank God.... Liz.... came out... and made some Headway.....
down the rabbit hole... while I was at my appointment.
I knew... with the weather... {Storms...Wind and Rain}...
I wasn't going to be able... to get the tent up....
{or...Trucks... unloaded...}
We have lost two tents... in three years.... I can't afford... to buy another.
I didn't even advertise this... 'soft' open house.....
it was known only....
 here... on fb..... and through a couple of fellow antique dealers.... spreading the word.
May God... Bless You. : ) : ) : ) 
Honestly.... I am in trouble. 
I Needed this Open House.... to pull us up.
but....
I had so 'little'...of myself.... to give.
Last week... when things looked... mighty dim......
I threw my Hands... in the Air....
Told The Lord.... to Shower me... with Blessings....
because..
We Need Them. 
!!!
oh.... my. 
: )
He Did.
: ) 
{I sold 3 times.... what I took in... at the show....away from home...we did last Fall. }
Wonderful....
{if you could see this mess... you would say...
"Miracle"....}
{We aren't out of the woods... yet... but...
 oh my....
at least... I have an ax.... : ) }
He sent... such Beautiful.... Angels.
: )
So Many... I have never met... before.
Young...Folks.... {and...Children : ) }.... 
the....
 Elderly....
: )
{some... reminded me... of my Mom. <3 }
They dug their way.... through....Shopped... and Shopped.....
 said they Loved... Everything.....
: ) : ) : ) 
and....
Hoped....
I wouldn't change...a Thing. 
: ) : ) : ) 
{oh my..... : ) but...I will.... : ) }
He also sent... some of His 'Best'... Angels.....
: ) : ) : ) 
The ones.... who have always... always... been so near.... and Dear. 
<3
oh my......
My 'Beloveds'.....
oh  my.
: )
Before.... I began to write this 'post'....
I was trying to figure out....
a way... to convey....
where my Mind... is...
these days.
I...don't think... too many of you... can understand... 
what I... can compare.... 'this'...to.....
 'all'... of 'this' to.
Have you ever been... in a Fight. ?
a Fist Fight.
?
: )
Do you know....... what it feels like..... when
 the opponent has landed a Hard Blow...{unexpected }
 Up Side of Your Head???
{I'll call it a 'Sucker Punch'.... or..... being... 'Blindsided'....
or... a 'Hit... from...
 Out of Left Field'...
'STUNNED'....
: ) 
That....
is where.... I'm at.
Where... I have been.... for months.
I 'know'... this.... 'whirlwind'
: )
and...I try....
 oh my....
to scramble.... to my feet.....
: )
but.... it takes a Whole... Lot... of Strength...
from the Gut....
{not the 'mind'.... because.... It... and the Heart....
are... Broken... Melted... like a Marshmallow..... on a stick...
in a Bonfire.
Worthless.... and Soft. }
The Gut... will.... push you through....
but... don't expect... to carry on a conversation... with me.
: )
The Mind... is... toast. 
and...
for the record...
I have been in fist fights....
when I was young...... 
{I have always... Fought... for the Underdog... Always... Will. }
When someone... lands a Blow... on the side... of your head....
you do.... see.... little blue birds.
: )
Your Mind.... Scrambles.... to Find....
'Up...and Down'....
I got hit... in the face... with a Ball Bat...one time.....
I thought... I'd lost... my head.
I got hit... on the top of my head.... with a run away... handle...
from a Wrecker's Winch.....
split my head.. wide open....
it... threw me... to the ground....
but...
I have Never... been dropped... so hard....
as I have been...
these last... many months.
not...
ever. 
Nor.... 
have I Ever... been... so Very... Blessed.
oh my.
Thank You.
Each.... and Every One... of You.
: ) : ) : )
Love You.

Hank Williams Jr - If It Will It Will

If it Will.... it will... If it Won't.... it won't.... If it Does... it does.... If it Don't.... it don't.

oh.....
my.
: ) 
The Best.....
part of my day.... was having Peg... stop by.
: )
{and... lovin' on the Fish.... <3 }
Peg... and I talked... standing at the Ford.....
then...
we walked into the rabbit hole.
: )
Peg... stood... and looked around...
then... fell... into my arms....
sobbing.
me...too.
oh my.
The rabbit hole... reflects the hatter.... and the mad march hare.
: )
{always has... }
She said... "We used to have such.... Wonderful Times... here. : ) We truly did...."
: )
yes...
the rabbit hole....
Peg...and myself.... look a little... 'tuff'... these days. 
oh my.
None of us have been able to function... for a long... long... time. 
{The Crazy thing... the folks... who have popped in... 
That have had to Climb... over stuff...and Dig....
{and bought.......} 
Don't want me to change a thing.
? ? ? 
{oh my....
seriously....?
? ? ? }
I am working... with two broken molars....
my face... is a mess....
haven't slept.... well.... for a couple of weeks.....
{I'm getting one... maybe... two... teeth extracted... tomorrow. }
It's taken all.... I have... to do... anything... 'well'.}
so... the bottom line...
It Is....
What it Is.
: )
I'm turning Everyone...Loose....
and... letting 'em...
Dig. 
: )
{I'll sit by the Fish.... throw in... another head of Lettuce. : )
They... Love....It!!!
and....
Like the song says....
If it Will... it will.
If it Won't... it won't....
If it Does.... it does....
If it Don't... it don't.
Some days... are Good some bad.... ya know...
That's the way... it goes. 
: )
No one... has ever had Control.... over this Old World....
don't ya know.... : ) }
Love to ya...
Barb C.


I bought... a load... of Flowers today.
but...
filled this 1870's Urn....
with the Victorian Fence Post Finials....
instead.
{I was going to keep them... have Justin mount them... to the roof of the Greenhouse.
I'm pricing them....
They are One of a Kind....
if...
they sell...
they do...
if...
they don't...
I won't cry. : )



I got the Porch... set.
Flowers... planted... here and there.....
: )

: ) : ) : ) 


There is soooooo Much.... outside.
oh my.
I planted around the Old Concrete Sow....
: )
{one of my Favorite... things to do.
I... LOVE Her.... }
I see... Justin skinned her snout.... while Plowing.... last Winter....
: (
oh well....
This One... This Old Gal... has never been for sale.....
{she has two Sisters... that are }
but...
Not...This One. <3 

The Fish.... Made My Day.
oh my....
How They... have Grown.
I rescued them...from walmart..... a couple of years ago....
they were about two inches long.
The Biggest one... must be 16 inches.
: )
I about died... a couple of months ago.....
when the fountain sprayed water out... it froze.... and depleted the tank.... 
{heated with 2 Stock Tank Heaters...}
to about 4 inches.
oh my....
oh my....
Barbara... was Hauling Butt.....
Calling...{Experts...} as She was Hauling.....it... 
I couldn't breathe.....
It was below zero....
as I was Frantically... trying to unroll... new hoses... 
{not easy... when they hit the sub zero temps...}
with a digital {meat } thermometer... in my pocket....
making SURE... I wasn't changing the water temp... by too much... while trying to add fresh water... to the Tank...
oh my...
oh my...
